Cooking Fever is a new cooking and time management game for the iPhone and iPad. Your goal is to go through stage after stage, cooking and preparing all sorts of food items and drink items for your loyal customers, making money and growing your business ever larger and ever more profitable. Read on for some tips and tricks for Cooking Fever!
When you begin playing, the pace is pretty slow, but as you advance forth, it picks up a LOT. To deal with this initially, not only do you have the food warmer that you can place stuff in, but when you place something in a bun, that means that it will stay good forever until you serve it, as well. So use the buns liberally as extra food warmers for the hot dogs and burgers (or whatever else you’re serving).
The most important upgrades to purchase for those who are time-challenged are the ones that allow you to cook more food at once and to store more food. Upgrading the tables and the grills will allow you to cook more and serve more food at once, and upgrading the food warmers will allow you to store more until there is a customer ready to eat it. Food warmers are less efficient, though; they add a whole extra step to the serving process.
If you’re not having any trouble keeping up and angry customers aren’t a concern, start upgrading the food itself so that you can sell it for higher prices. To make it easier to see who to serve first during a round of serving, look at the customer’s facial expression. They go from happy, to concerned, to sad, to angry, before they finally leave. Serve them in reverse order, from angry to sad to concerned to happy.
Whenever you get stuck on one stage, you can always go back to old stages that you played and play them again for the same amount of coins you would have earned before (or more coins if you do better). Do this in order to earn more stars, or to gain experience levels as well, and do this as many times as you want.
Load up on interior upgrades, too. The more upgrades you buy, the happier your customers, and the better your tips. Tables, barstools and televisions increase customer waiting time, while tables and barstools also increase tip time. Disco balls increase the amount the tip is. That’s just for the diner – there will be far more upgrades for the Bakery, the Seafood House, Pizzeria, Chinese Restaurant, Indian Diner and Breakfast Cafe as well.
