What parents need to know

Ease of play

Depending on your Android device, there may be issues with touch screen responsiveness. In addition, some of the target areas (like the spot where you place orders) are very, very small. You may have to resort to sliding your finger across targets rather than just tapping them.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Diner Dash 2 is another of the time management games centered on the character "Flo." Your job? Seat customers, take their orders, bring them dinner, collect their payment, and clean tables. Add to that customers with different needs and you'll definitely need to stay on your toes. Bookworms want quiet. Families need a high chair and sometimes a mop. Cell phone guys are impatient and noisy. And the list goes on. You'll need to meet certain goals to move on to the next level.

Is it any good?


DINER DASH 2 is a disappointing remake of a very popular PC casual game. The graphics are mediocre; longtime fans of Flo will wonder why she got such a poor makeover that she's no longer recognizable. Hot spots (or touchable points) in the game are microscopic, and many Android devices simply do not recognize a high percentage of user actions. You'll need to tap each spot three or more times to get it to respond. Game mechanics fans will expect, such as dragging and dropping customers onto tables and easily rotating them to match colors to the seats, are gone. Instead, you'll tap on a customer, tap on a table, and then tap on the table to rotate the customers in their seats. If you don't tap quickly enough, you'll lose your color matching bonus. The game's price tag is far too high ($4.99 at the time of this review), especially given such poor quality. The only saving grace is that those with the right Android device who are able to overlook the cost, graphics, and controls, may actually enjoy the strategy that's lost on the rest of us.
