A Taste Of Chocolatier
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

GamersInfo has posted a new review of PlayFirst's Chocolatier, a casual title combining arcade action with resource management and a bit of storyline. In the game players must build a chocolate empire by trading for ingredients, maximizing factory production speed in an arcade mini-game, and selling the sweet confections for the best price. Chocolatier features both Story and Freeplay modes, over 130 quests through 14 cities, and over 60 recipes to discover.

There are 64 chocolate recipes that you need to unlock throughout your travels. Initially, you will only be working with chocolate bars. Eventually, you will uncover the mysteries of squares, infusions and truffles. There are 16 recipes of each kind. You can look in your recipe book to see all of the mouth-watering options, but you will not know how to make them. The unknown recipes have a question mark over the oh-so-realistic picture of the confection in question. After that first meeting and chocolate delivery for Evangeline, she will send you to the man that will give you your first recipe to get you started.

As you acquire new recipes, you will discover that you need to update the machinery at the factory in order to create that type of delectable new treat. If you're doing things right, money will not be a problem. Watch the market. Buy your ingredients cheap, and sell the chocolate at its peak. You'll do fine.

While ingredients will be shipped direct to the factory, you do need to personally travel to each market to buy their ingredients or to sell your chocolates. Each leg of travel will take a given amount of time (You'll see it in advance.) and will cost you a certain amount of money. You also will need to travel to an individual factory if you want to change the recipe.
