Hunger Calls reminds me of Wall-E. There
are these conveyor belts in this iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad game. The
conveyor belts move food. The food goes to people sitting there waiting
for it. They want you to give it to them. And only the food that is in a
little bubble over their heads. There are arrows in many levels that
have to be changed like a train track. There are also levels where the
player must move them off the conveyor belt to where the customer is
The color scheme in Hunger Calls is friendly to families of every shape, color, and form. The characters in Hunger Calls look happy when they are being served quickly. Not so happy when they are being neglected. Which can be irritating if their food item is not coming out of the machine. It is not like I had a choice over what would roll on out. What is even worse is the food can give the customers a stomach ache and the player must give them some medicine.
The power of prayer has healed a great many people throughout time. I would have loved to have been able to pray for the people in pain. But this is a video game and they are not real. I did feel like there must be something wrong with my diner if the food gave them a stomach ache. What are we some fast food establishment?
There are thirty-nine levels in Hunger Calls. The iPhone/iPod Touch version of Hunger Calls costs ninety-nine cents, and the iPad version will set you back one dollar and ninety-nine cents. The levels in Hunger Calls become progressively more difficult. The first challenge I faced was level seven. I enjoyed earning money and getting to spend it on food that would bring in more money.
Hunger Calls teaches service. It is wonderful to be able to serve others wherever God places us. This app can make people think about how they can help others. It can also teach them to make money and get wealthy. But as the government likes to take more money from the successful I doubt many will follow that path. I said something about Wall-E before right? People sitting there awaiting machines to bring them sustenance is definitely a concept I remember from that movie.
