Do you love cooking stimulation games? Download Overcooked! We promise you will enjoy it a lot! It is available for from 1 to 4 players. Get inspired by real-life recipes and have fun!
Here the cooperative mood is the focal point. So, graphics are constructed just around this idea. You will certainly appreciate nice images, bright colors, funny animated characters, and rather realistic kitchen utilities and activities. Humans acting as cookers are managed efficiently in the kitchen if a player is skilled enough. The movements are smooth and exact. There are several kitchen layouts, and all of them are eye-pleasing.
Though this game is available for one player also, it is intended for teamwork. All the characters are chefs involved in the cooking of some dish following one of a large number of recipes. When the food is ready, they are expected to serve up for a customer. There are rounds. During each one, a player should make his chef (he keeps control only under the one character) to complete an order during a short time. Thus, the target is not only to prepare, cook, serve and clean up, but you should do it all in time. In this case, a player earns coins. If there are mistakes in serving, for example, the efforts will not result in reward and such order just waists your time. So, you should be very hard working, fast, and skilled. Remember about various obstacles like floor collapsing and others.
When you work with someone, you test your ability to coordinate activities in a team. Here in kitchen chaos, you have to rely on the other players, and that will demonstrate whether you can do it. The game is a good couch for cooperation. But here there is also a competitive challenge mode. Which one would you select?
Controls here are deliberately simple. There are just a couple of buttons to cope with all that staff in the kitchen. You need to push one button if you want to make a movement looking like picking up, and another button will be needed for interaction. Move the characters with a thumbstick. You can choose the speed of action, for example, to make a chef to chop faster or slower. Look at the menu for more information.
