DoraWhen does work feel more like play? When you're working for Papa, of course! Now, Flipline Studios can keep you on the clock and at the grill on your iPad with Papa's Burgeria HD, the first mobile port of their amazingly popular time management simulation series. While fans who have played the original Papa's Burgeria game will find the gameplay here mostly very familiar, this iPad edition combines elements from newer installments in the series to beef itself up and serve one delicious (and greasy) experience you can now enjoy on the go.

Papa's Burgeria HDIf you're new to Papa's restaurants, don't worry; running one all alone is surprisingly simple. Customers will enter the shop at the order station, where you jot down exactly what they want on the curiously specific burger of their dreams. From there you move to the Grill Station, where you slap down patties and cook them to the desired doneness, flipping them for an even sear. Lastly, you'll visit the Build Station, where you carefully design your meaty masterpiece according to each customer's specifications, dragging each ingredient into place and trying to get it both centered and in the proper order. Done right and quickly, and you'll get a happy customer as well as a bigger tip that can go towards buying helpful upgrades and decorations between levels. You'll even unlock new ingredients as you go! All of this is handled neatly with your finger (please use a spatula for grilling in real life) as you swap stations at the tap of a button, and drag ingredients and order slips around the screen. Which doesn't mean to say that it's easy, since, as anyone who has ever worked the line will tell you, things are going to get hectic very fast, and when you're juggling six orders at once you can't lie down on the job. That is, unless you're playing this game in bed. In which case you can. iPads are awesome.

While I did experience some minor slow-downs on my first generation iPad, Papa's leap to iOS is largely very well done, mostly because the series feels like such a natural fit for the touch-based controls. The setting and concept is of course virtually identical to the original free browser game, the addition of unlockables, store customisation, minigames, and more from more recent games like Papa's Pancakeria really helps round the whole experience out and make it harder to put down than ever before. It's gorgeous, vibrant, and even more addictive than the perfect golden french fry. Turns out you can fry burgers just as well on an iPad as you can on your computer. Uh... I don't mean literally. Please don't put raw meat on your iPad. It voids your warranty and ensures your e-mail gets circulated and laughed at around Apple HQ. Not that I would know anything about that, of course.

Papa's Burgeria Tips and Tricks

  • There is NO PENALTY for discarding food, which isn't very realistic, but whatever, take advantage of it by grilling extra burgers. It doesn't take much more time to cook four burgers than two.

  • Every burger is begun by putting a bun on the plate, so if you ever have time to kill and nothing to do, put a bun on a plate!

  • Don't try to do an entire customer at once; that is, don't do everything for number one, then do everything for number two, etc. You need to work on several orders at once to be able to be efficient.

  • Organize your tickets when you are taking orders or presenting orders to customers, because you can't do anything else during that time. Organizing tickets at other times is a waste of time.

  • You don't actually have to have the order ticket up while you're making the order. If you know the order well-enough, you might find it faster to make it from memory and simply grab the ticket when you've got it finished.

  • In the beginning of the game, all customers order their burgers medium, so you can make eight or ten medium burgers at once straight off to save time.

Mini-games:
Hallway Hunt:

Place your finger on the screen beneath the person's eyes and drag it as they move around to keep track of where they are.

Spin n' Sauce

Only the top-most light wins the prize, so try to time it for that top light.

Breakfast Blast:

This is like Duck Hunt. As you earn more prizes, the number of shots you have decreases and the number of breakfast items you have to shoot increases, but on a touchscreen this is pretty laughably easy regardless. If the breakfast items are overlapping, you can get two with one shot, although that doesn't give you any bonus.

Jojo's Burger Slots:

The timing for this slot machine game seems to be best when the item you want is about halfway coming into the screen. The response time is very quick.

Customer Cravings:

The hardest thing about this mini-game is that the order that customers have is based on what they will order the next day, so if you're about to unlock a new ingredient, what they order might be something you've never seen before. This means that until you've unlocked all ingredients, this can be a matter of luck. Just keep trying.

Blender Ball:

This is like Skee Ball. Note where the star-marked hole is. The left hand power meter controls the height you will launch the ball at. The highest power is too high to hit a top hole, so get just under that if the hole is on top. The right hand power meter controls where you launch it from left to right, so just try to line the ball up with the hole.

Pizza Pachinko:

This physics based game is so dependent on even small variations of where it hits the objects that it's mostly luck. I personally like to drop the ball atop one of the objects near the center, but essentially you just need to try again with this one.

More to Come. Mini-games guide now complete.
