Lunch Rush HD
Dinner dash with bears!
This is to all intents and purposes a dinner dash game but just with animal staff rather than humans.
There is all the traditional elements there, colour multiples, plate multiples, meal ticket multiples etc.
The music is quite jaunty for this genre and the graphics are good solid and certainly do the job.
For me though I felt the game had a very slight racist edge, in that the white bear was called 'snowy' and the brown bear was called 'browny', maybe it is the country I live in that finds this offensive, but it certainly but a slight taint on the game for me.
I knew this was going to be a 'dash' style game when I downloaded the demo, but I was wondering whether the genre had moved forward and added any 'extras', sadly no the genre is the same as always. The only slight different is that the 'non-stop' mode opens up quite early on in the game, indeed I had only played the game for 20 minutes and it had opened up for me. I was also getting 'expert' scores every level, and considering I wouldn't say I was an expert at this genre, I am tipping the game maybe too easy for someone who thoroughly enjoys this genre of game.4
Owing to the negatives as detailed above, I can't recommend the game (unless you don't find offence in 'name calling', but if you are after a quirky dash game and you can overlook the above, then I would recommend downloading first as you may find the game too easy.

COULD have been a cute game
But I couldn't get past the wailing/screaming customers (apparently a gesture of joy when you seat them/take their order/bring them food) to make me want to buy this.
I love Dash type games, I have every Flo game ever created. With this one I was kind of put off by the server and the cook being animals (assuming the game was made just for kids) but I went ahead and played it anyway. Got used to the animal 'owners' and decided to try and enjoy the game. Which, really, it *is* a cute game. If you're 12 years old.
But the "hee hee hee!" shrieks every time you seat someone, etc, got on my nerves so badly that I had to turn it off.
Yes, I know, you can mute the sound to avoid hearing that. But I don't want to have to mute everything just to get rid of the shrieking.

If you're over 10 years old, skip this.
I kept waiting for this game to get more challenging, but it was apparently geared for kids. I finished the game with the "expert" rating in about two hours. Waste of money.

Same Old Game Different Day
There is no difference with this game than its predcessors. What is different? HD means nothing. This game is a bust!

Visually creepy rip-off of the Diner Dash games. Frankly, it made my skin crawl.
