Many think flipping burgers is as easy as 1-2-3. Not when you've found a strange blueprint of a burger-making futuristic machine. You think the machine would make your life easier? No way, Jose. Au contraire, it forces you to work faster as irate customers start to pile up. That is the Burger Shop world.
Burger Shop pleases and tickles the senses with its funny interludes and prompts which make you appreciate the game even more. To play, you would have to manage the different ingredients and materials spewed forth by your new machine via a conveyor belt. The materials are arranged haphazardly and you’d have to find your way through patties, buns, glasses, cherries, cheeses, lettuce, and many more. There are different types of people with different preferences and patience meter. You'd have to adjust your game depending on their needs and moods.
Like every other diner game, Burger Shop comes with many upgrades as you go along. You'll start with the very basic burger and then improve as you get soda dispensers, French fry machines, ice cream vats, milkshake makers, and different types of garnishes. Whenever you pass a certain number of levels in the Story mode, you get a new and snazzier restaurant. After you get to your second restaurant, the "Challenge" and "Relaxed" modes will unlock. The Challenge mode puts you under time pressure while Relaxed mode, just like its name, only aims to train you and the customers will stay as long as you make them wait.
Burger Shop trains your problem-solving abilities as you sift through the many different elements trying to find the right ones to serve the demanding crowd. It's not far from the real situation of fast-food workers which will make you sympathize with them and perhaps not lose YOUR patience when you're on the other side of the counter.
