You can get the game Burger Rush for free by visiting this link and watching a commercial for Chilis. Apparently this is how Chilis makes their burgers or something. I’m not really sure. (Note: it isn’t actually a game BY Chilis – they’re just using it for advertising purposes.) It is, however, a relatively fun game. I got it a couple of weeks ago and have played through it, and in my own opinion, its worth getting.
Burger Rush is a casual game (an epitaph to most gamers, I know, but hey, I like ‘em.) It plays similarly to Bejeweled, except with burgers, ketchup bottles tomatoes and lettuce instead of gems. The biggest difference is, similar to Puzzle Quest, there’s a bigger goal than merely matching items: customers come in and request a burger from the menu, and you then match items to make that burger. One burger recipe may require 10 hamburger patties, 8 tomatoes, 8 lettuce, and 8 cheese (wow, that’s one big burger…) As you match those items, they go towards making that burger, which is then served to the customer.
When a customer is served, you make money. The longer it takes to serve a customer, the less money you make off of them. You can also add sodas and fries to the order to increase the value of the order. Each game day/level, you’re given an amount of money thats your goal. Succeeding in making that much money gets you tokens, with which you can purchase newer better burger recipes.
Although the game is fun, its also a big disappointing: all there is is one mode, which lasts for something like 50 days/levels. Once you finish, you get a congratulations screen and – that’s it. You get teleported back to day one, without any of the nifty new recipes you bought. The game REALLY needs some sort of unlockable zen mode, or a way to replay levels, or something. As it is, it’s just too short.
Still, though, fun game, available for free. What do you have to lose?
