News: Burger Shop 2 and MCF: Prime Suspects!

Today, Big Fish Games broke the recent string of new hidden objects games by offering us a new time management game!


  • Your role: a cook at a classic black/white/red diner
  • Theme: making food quickly
  • Music: fair, but gets the job done
  • Upgrades: you're always getting some new piece of equipment or a new kind of food to serve; you also gain new ranks as you go
  • Customer satisfaction?: yes, quick service earns happy customers and better tips
  • Level length: very reasonable; nice and short

Burger Shop 2 offers subtle humor from the beginning, which I found pleasantly amusing. At the beginning, you find out that you were one of the few people who received the plans the aliens sent to Earth for building a high-tech burger-making machine. Interested yet? And the humor continues in the game's written content.

For once, you're not running around a room serving people at tables. You have a sort of first-person perspective on the cooking area. The burger machine spits out all kinds of ingredients - eggs, bacon, burgers, buns, butter, waffles, etc, and you have to quickly pile them on plates and hand them to customers. You also have drink making machines and toasters and such. The controls are easy, and right-clicks are used as shortcuts for other actions - this was good planning on the developer's part.

Additionally, you're constantly doing something, and the levels aren't too long, which are both great features in a time management game.

This is one of the more immediately enjoyable time management games I've played.
