Stand O'Food 3
G5 Entertainment may be the king of time management games. Stand
O'Food 3 is a game I have been playing on the iPad. You build burgers
and other sandwiches for the clients. There are a lot of different
sauces players can use. Different customers prefer a different taste on
their food. Then you get to add in things like fries, drinks, and ice
cream. There are eighteen sauces, thirty-one ingredients, and
twenty-five cafes. All of this in seventy-five levels.
The shine in the graphics of Stand O'Food 3 is astounding. I can not believe how good Stand O'Food 3 looks. The graphics are amazing. The items look great, and there is an amazing attention to detail. Customers look different, the cafes look different, and so on. I felt like that was a place I could eat at. Well without the conveyor belts which are there to add a little twist to the game play.
The music in Stand O'Food 3 is adequate. The special effect sounds for doing things right is great. The sounds for doing something wrong is not so great. That brings up a little quibble of mine. If I do something wrong in the order I can't serve the customer. Why not? Why not have me serve the customer and get half of the money or something? I would like to serve them but get financially punished. Having to set it aside or trash it does not feel right.
There are enough levels to keep time management gamers busy for a few weeks. I am not clear on the price since Family Friendly Gaming was provided the game before the official street date. I am guessing two to three dollars. The conveyor belt is either loved or adored by those playing Stand O'Food 3. I am about ready to get into that.
I am not a fan of the conveyor belt in Stand O'Food 3. I understand the game play mechanic of making the burgers just right. But the order seems to come out in a way that is supposed to slow the player down. This led me to more frustration than you can imagine. I am also not a fan of how the money system works. I spent almost all my money refilling sauces and machines. This allowed me little opportunity to upgrade things. The costs of things in Stand O'Food 3 are expensive. Like being in New York City or Los Angeles.
The lesson in Stand O'Food 3 is serving others. There is also a lesson about being successful. I do not get a sense that the main character is content with the level of success. I love the concept of teaching fast, efficient, and accurate service. There are some in the food sector who need to know that lesson. I am not sure if they will be playing Stand O'Food 3 though. I know when I cut hair the last thing I wanted to play was a hair related video game.
