Your uncle has asked for your help for a day. Will you help him out?

Phew, it's been many a year since I played a memory style game like this one! It was quite a nostalgic experience, which certainly brought a smile to my face.

It's a very basic premise, but it carries itself very well. I think the type-to-talk style voice made things a lot more amusing and helped keep the rage at bay when I fluffed yet another order!

The steady increase in difficulty as the levels progressed was done very well, it would have been quite easy to make this too hard, but it's just at the right level to be able to beat with a little bit of effort and patience.

Really fun little old school game, definitely worth a look if you wanna see what it feels like to be a server in a busy burger joint!

Keep up the awesome work, would love to see something with maybe a few more graphical elements in any future releases, just to give the game a bit more pop! =)

Thank you so much for your kind words and the video. Really entertaining and sums the game quite well. Glad you liked the game and were able to finish it. Definitely looking to incorporate more graphics into my next game.

I did a second video and it's pretty much more aware gameplay as I couldn't reach the end

Thanks! I really enjoyed your game but I wasn't too good at it!

Hey, first of all thank you for making this.  Was smiling all throughout the video. I loved how you said you were going to end at a particular number of orders but kept on going. And yes, there's an end and you were very close to it. 

Furthermore, I could see some bugs.  You don't necessarily need to enter the order in order of how it was said, it's a bug and I am working on it. Similarly, if you add 2 peri peri fries and then delete 1 and then enter, somehow that ends the game as well , again, that is a known bug that I am working on.  Also, will have to check why you were getting that 'You Freen' message. Haven't seen others getting it, it's part of some old code that others haven't encountered. 

Nonetheless, you weren't  bad  at the game and did well. I am so so glad that you see potential in the concept. I made the game in its current state just to see if people enjoy the core gameplay and have enough validation now. 

Thank you once more. 

The bugs were fine and didn’t affect gameplay that much, I’m glad you enjoyed the video and I’ll probably make a short one where I complete it to show the end,

Great game, thanks!

Great, will be looking forward to that.

A great game of memory and focus that kept me on the edge till I finished it. Loved the concept and experience!! :)

Glad you liked the game. How long did it take to finish the game?

I love the colors. The game needs your own art of foods. You can do it! I believe in you.  >:)

Hehe, thank you so much for the comment. Hope you liked the gameplay as well. Would love your feedback on the same. 

In terms of graphics, I have heard that real PoS look even uglier. Wasn't sure where I could incorporate my art work.

Go to YouTube type how to add art images in in your game engine you use. :) That will do the trick. >:)

I know how to incorporate images into my game engine (Godot), it's just that I wanted to give it a realistic feeling and most of the real PoS systems don't have images either  :). 

Interesting. Whatever fits best for you is fine with me. :)
