A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Taco Master is a food stand simulator that has players filling customer orders for increasingly complicated tacos using a variety of ingredients. It's a reflex test primarily, mixed with a little memorization. While there's nothing objectionable about the app (with the possible exception of mild harsh language), the later levels could frustrate young players.
Is it any good?
There are plenty of restaurant simulator games on the market -- forcing you to quickly prepare orders with an ever-widening batch of ingredients. Taco Master, unfortunately, does nothing to move the genre forward. The game, in fact, is a treadmill of making orders (using ingredients that don't look too appetizing and sound even less so when you slop them onto a tortilla), with short breaks between levels. The fun is supposed to be in the tension that comes with getting orders right and completed before customers leave, but it's ultimately kind of boring. There are worse games in the App Store for a dollar, but there are much, much better ones, too.
