Kawaii kitchen

I love this game so much. It is cartoony and cute and I feel it is good for people of all ages. It is a good concentration and memory game and I do recommend anyone who is into things like this.

You might think that super cute animals can get through life by simply being cute, but sometimes they've got to make a living too. Enter Kawaii Kitchen, the burger shop arcade app that comes with an extra side of adorable. The game's simple to play for gamers of all ages, with tutorials that walk players through the basics of flawlessly filling their customers' orders. It's also a fair bit of a challenge to build the perfect burger, especially later in the game when you not only have a wider selection of ingredients to choose from, but also add things like extra patties, double cheese, and the like. The difficulty curve does eventually get pretty steep, which might frustrate some younger gamers, but it's still gradual enough to ease them into the tougher stages.

One of the few hurdles facing Kawaii Kitchen, aside from the obvious health code violations of animals serving food, is the game's slow grind. Although players can rise through the ranks fairly quickly, the rewards for doing so feel like they come along at a glacial pace unless you're willing to spend some extra money for coin or gem packs. The game even features bloated and invasive ads that pop up frequently after rounds, ads which are conveniently removed only after the player's first real money purchase in the shop. Still, Kawaii Kitchen is a fun and addictive way to kill some time and a cute change of pace from your usual café game.
