Burgertime World Tour

(MonkeyPaw Games)
Ship Date: 
Tuesday, November 15, 2011

MonkeyPaw Games is most notable for bringing original Japanese PlayStation titles over to the American and European PSN. With titles such as Chou Aniki andSonic Wings Special, they’ve become somewhat of a niche. Their latest release, however, is not an import but a remake of the arcade game BurgerTime.

In BurgerTime, the object of the game is to create delicious hamburgers one layer at a time, all the while avoiding the dangerous condiments and toppings that try and stop you. It was popular back in the 80s, and MonkeyPaw Games has teamed up with developers Frozen Codebase to bring the game into the current generation with BurgerTime World Tour.

The concept of World Tour remains the same – to create burgers – but the execution has changed drastically. Players take control of Peter Pepper in a fully 3D environment as he attempts to build the best burger across four different countries: America, Mexico, Paris, and Tokyo – each world comprises 10 stages with the final stage being a face-off with a rival chef.

If you’re unfamiliar with BurgerTime, the goal is to walk over the various stacked layers of the burger and have them fall on each other until eventually it creates the full burger. While you’re doing this, your enemies – the pickle, pepper, carrot and  egg – try to stop you. Clearly they’re just jealous because they weren’t good enough to be part of the juicy burger. It’s okay because if they’re standing on one of the ingredients as it’s about to fall, they’ll go with it. They can also be caught between falling layers as well. This allows you to create speciality burgers for extra points.

The level design of World Tour has evolved beyond the simple tiered walkways of the arcade. There are now rolling barrels, dangerous drills and other sorts of obstacles that get in the way. It can be very hectic at times, though, and you can get lost within a level due to its complicated layout. There is an icon indicating where the closest burger is located, but sometimes there are certain paths you have to take in order to find them all. Let’s not forget the numerous enemies chasing you, either.
