CNN Reviews Diner Dash

In a recent review, CNN's Fun & Games section took a look at Diner Dash, a restaurant managing game from PlayFirst. Available to play online as well as in a downloadable form, Diner Dash allows players to assume the role of Flo, an ex-stockbroker who has decided to open her own diner. To help her in her task players must juggle the seating of customers, fetch menus, and deliver food in a timely manner.
Many of the title's 50 levels add new challenges such as elderly customers who take longer to order and eat (which is particularly frustrating when there's a line at the door), teenagers who don't tip well, food critics who require extra attention, and later on in the game, bonus points for matching the colors of the customers' outfits with the chairs, such as yellow, green, red, purple or blue.Available for both Macs and Windows machines, the Diner Dash demo can be downloaded from Macgamefiles.com.

You also can rack up bonus points when Flo handles two tables at once. For example, if the customers at two nearby tables put down their menus at the same time, Flo can take both their orders before dropping them off together at the kitchen. This will yield more points than taking their orders to the kitchen separately. Likewise, for a similar bonus, you can carry two trays of food at once or bus two tables in a row.
Delivering a speedy dining experience -- by seating customers, taking orders, serving food and busing tables all in a timely manner -- is the goal to winning "Diner Dash."
