Long queues at the bank, traffic on a bus, airport delays – there’s only one thing to do to keep your boredom at bay, and that’s to find a good game for your cellphone. Cheaper than a text message, and a lot more discreet to those around you, a good cellphone game is indispensable in our multitasking lives. And speaking of the word “multitasking” is the a pc game turned mobile version, Diner Dash, where multitasking is not just fun but deliciously addicting.
Colourful, simple graphics on a rather bare background make this game ideal for tiny cellphone screens, and with next-to-nil sounds, you don’t need to worry about bothering the man sleeping next to you on the train.
Diner Dash is all about you as “Flo”, a young woman who opens a diner. Keeping the customers happy is the name of the game, and you quickly learn the ropes of running a restaurant– from seating a variety of clientele (who range from patient, low-tipping seniors to big-tipping business women in a mad rush – all color coded), to taking orders, serving, clearing the tables and a whole lot more. There are two modes to choose from, the career mode where the goal is to earn enough money to buy a new restaurant, and the “shift” mode where its all about making money through continuous shifts.
The game is easy to learn and as you advance, things get more difficult, making Diner Dash enjoyably challenging with some fun bonuses to boot. Its scored high marks on the gaming community, and is considered one of those games whose scaled-down version for mobiles is actually better than the pc version.
