Taco Master

(i)

 

Restaurant sim feels like a treadmill of making orders.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

The game ramps up the difficulty slowly, adding new ingredients at a steady pace and giving people who have decent coordination plenty of time to fill the orders. 

Violence

Sex

Language

One of the first words you see when you start the game is "screwed". But there's nothing harsher than that.

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.

QUALITY

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.
