Happy Chef 2

As the name of 'Happy Chef 2' suggests, Happy Chef 2 is a cooking Time Management game. The concept and gameplay behind this game is surely not at all original as we have seen it being used and reused in so many games before.

There is nothing much about story in this cooking game sequel which is not unusual for a Time Management game of a kind. You basically travel around the world from Italy, Hawaii, America, China to France and set up each restaurant there. One thing that we like is the variety of menus in Happy Chef 2, each country has a new setting and a new set of menus and recipes so the game does not feel as repetitive as it could have been.

Happy Chef 2 requires a huge lot of clicking which sometimes can be very frustrating. The gameplay is simple, customers come in, cook up what they want, serve them and collect the money. Some menus require more than just one or two clicks to complete and there are no shortcuts! There are upgrades to purchase, most of them are very useful and the prices are not too high. Moreover, there are achievements to collect as well as mini games between each location.

The graphics of Happy Chef 2 is nice-looking, clean and very colorful. The 2D characters are well drawn and the effects are good to some extent. The music is not distracting, it is pleasant and fits the game nicely.

Happy Chef 2 is a very formulaic cooking game, but at least it gets the formula right! It is fun to play but eventually your hands will be very tired due to the clickiness of the game.
