"Burger Island" Review
The story starts out with you on a deserted with nothing to your name. You get a job working at burger stand that sees little business. Your job is to make the burgers, shakes, or fries. The levels rotate between what you are required to cook.
Orders are shown by placing a tray in one of four spots, that will and can be filled up. Around the trays are the ingredients that you will need to make the recipes available. For example, burgers have a grill, buns, ketchup, and hot peppers.
The recipes you start off with are easy, generic recipes. Later recipes take more time to prepare. More ingredients equals harder to get orders out, but when you do there's more cash to be earned. With the ingredients spread across the table, it pays to find some sort of order to taking care of orders. As you complete levels and earn cash, recipes can be bought from an island tribe leader.
If you do get "Burger Island," buy it because you want an easy, but fun game to play so you can focus on something besides the challenges of your day.
