this app was reviewed for approximately 1 hour.
Dr Panda Asian Restaurant Asia is a motion and puzzle based children’s app. The central objective is to make food for a variety of patrons within an Asian themed restaurant, in order to obtain coins. The skills involved in playing this app include motor skills and problem solving.
When the app is first opened, the game shows a cut scene of an Asian-style restaurant. Players are then immediately presented with a “New Game!” advertisement in the top right hand corner. Tapping this causes a drop down menu to appear, with 23 different apps listed that were produced by the same developer. No prices are listed on this page. Upon selecting one of the apps, a prompt appears that asks for a player’s date of birth. This then takes players to the Google Play Store, where the app can be purchased as normal. Any age over 14 years will take the player immediately to the store where the app can be purchased. In the top left hand corner is a parental option section requiring a similar age lock. This gives parents the option to subscribe to the Dr Panda newsletter, like the developer on Facebook, and to turn off the promotion screen at the beginning of the app.
Upon entering the restaurant, players are taken to a basic tutorial screen. The player is tasked with preparing sushi for a customer, and then the screen loads to a kitchen setting. Within gameplay, players must click-and-drag in to move components together in order to create various food items (such as sushi). Upon preparing them, the items are manually fed to various other characters by clicking and dragging them to customers. Non-player characters pay the player for their efforts, based on how much they enjoy the meal. The coins appear to have no use in regards to upgrades, etc.
Yes: Other apps can be purchased from the home screen through a drop down menu, which takes players directly to the Google Play store. Apps range in price from $2.49 to $4.49.
No gambling content was found at the time of this review.
Upon opening the app, a notification in the top right hand corner appears which allows players to purchase and download all of the other Dr Panda games. These are advertised via an icon in the top right hand corner, every time the app is opened.
No game playing behaviour which may be of concern to parents was found during this review.
