News: Bilbo and Grimm

Today, Big Fish offers us a game about Bilbo. No, not Mr. Baggins of the Shire, but a little furry creature who seeks to become successful in the restaurant business so that he can marry the woman of his dreams.

Bilbo: The Four Corners of the World is a time management game, like the many others before it, in which you serve food to restaurant customers.

Your goals

  • Serve people the menu selections they like most
  • Accomplish the given task goals for each level (creating combos and such)
  • Earn big tips with quick service

What I like so far

  • Great graphics, as is typical of Alawar games
  • Cute creatures and animations
  • Interface is easy to learn and control
  • Specific goals assigned at the beginning of each level give you something to work for

What I don't like so far

  • The music is repetitive and only fair, but it gets the job done
  • Auto-seating of customers - you don't choose where to seat them (some people might like this)
  • Apparent lack of features and things to control (but I haven't played very much of the game yet)
If you want something more complex than the average time management restaurant game, I don't think this game is going to take you to the next level of complexity. But, if you like cute creatures and want more restaurant game goodness, this is a good download for you! Click below to go get it:
