i've had more fun taking a vision test
in this hidden object time- and budget-management game, you are a chef who is taking part in the Chef`s Challenge contest in Foodville`s Restaurant Row. in this game, you have to find various hidden items to create your culinary delights. you are given a total budget of $100 and a time limit of 10 minutes for each of four menu items.
graphics: poorly done; often incredibly tiny, sometimes with similar colour as the background, made it difficult see some of the items in the search list. there is a click penalty. hints cost $20 each.
music and sound effects: the only acceptable aspect of this game.
before i start complaining, let me point out that i enjoy both hidden object games and time management games (i own and play these two game genres quite often, too), so i was looking forward to trying out this combination of these two themes.
my complaints: in the demo, you start at the Chop City Steakhouse on Restaurant Row. i started by trying to make the dessert (a chocolate cake), which required me to find a number of random hidden items in the kitchen in less than ten minutes. i then moved on to find a wine, which required me to search out a bunch of random hidden items in a wine shop. by the time i had finished these two searches, i had purchased 4 hints, and had earned $2 for finishing before my time ran out, which left me with a total budget of $22 and i still had two more menu items to assemble! at this point, i gave up because it was clear i would be repeating this part of the game (perhaps forever), and i hadn't enjoyed it the first time around!
my interaction: one hour demo. there is only one mode of difficulty, which i think qualifies as ?hardcore?. i found this game very stressful, and not in a good way, either.

Will not load
I downloaded this game many many times and it will not load. I don't know what the problem is but I paid for this game for nothing!!!

I have played better hidden objects games than this. Total waste of my time downloading it. The objects are tiny so they are hard to find. if you click more than twice the time goes down by about 30-40 seconds plus you can not buy a hint because they also deduct any money you have or get when you click too many times.
