It's time once again for another installment in the popular Papa's series of time-management restaurant sims from Flipline Studios... but this time you can be the star! In Papa's Hot Doggeria, you can finally create your own hapless schlub who winds up single-handedly running yet another establishment for Papa Louie, this time a stand at a baseball stadium when it seems like getting a job there is the perfect solution to missing out on season tickets to see your favourite team. After all, you can just kick back and watch games all day, right? WRONG. The customers are hungry for hot dogs, popcorn, sodas, and more, and it's up to you to cook it all to perfection! Seriously, don't mess this one up. Especially if the home team happens to be losing. Sports fans can be crazy.
As with all other Papa's games, winning comes down to expertly cooking and assembling customer's orders as fast as you can. You'll take tickets at the order station, carefully time the cooking at the grill station, assemble toppings at the build station, and finally add in any extras like soda or popcorn at the pop station. After a hot-dog is cooked to perfection, flipped halfway through for even doneness, you'll carefully pile on the customer's specific toppings by dropping them as evenly as possible with the mouse. Simple enough, right? Well, when you're only dealing with one customer, anyway. As time passes, more and more people will pile into your little stand at the same time, and you'll have to keep track of all their orders while you fill them on the fly. Luckily, the tips and other money you earn can be spent on upgrades to cook faster, but also decorations for your little stand that will give bonuses to ingredients and customer wait times.

The Papa's series has kind of become a benchmark for quality in the time-management genre, and each one is a perfect go-to option if you're looking for something addictive, colourful, and challenging. Though the core gameplay hasn't changed much, apart from the theming and the new items, fans of the series will love another opportunity to sling fast food with Flipline's winning formula, and the addition of being able to create your own main character is a nice little cherry on top. Papa's Hot Doggeria is another engaging, vibrant, quirky little installment in a celebrated series, and easily worth your time. As long as you can overlook how gross that chili looks as it glops all over everything like... uh... nevermind. Now make me a hot dog! I'm not demanding like those other customers. I just want relish, onions, mustard, and for you to do assemble it all while dancing Gangnam Style.
