The level to which the game was reviewed

The reviewer tested all of the features available and played for one hour.

App description

Set in a kitchen with three customers, including a sweet, muppet-like monster, this open sandbox game requires the player to create meals from a combination of foods and cooking methods. Simple slide and drop actions make this a suitable game for young players.

Reviewers comments

Using colourful images, Toca Kitchen 2 simply requires the player to choose from items like onions, fish, fruit and vegetables, then swipe them to the cooking screen and choose to chop, boil, fry or deep fry by dropping the food on the required utensil. Serving the cooked food to one of three customers, a woman, a man and a monster, elicits very different emotional and physical responses which can be quite amusing and windy! Sometimes they burp, sometimes they shake their heads and grimace and other times they are very happy

The app requires the purchaser to provide no personal information beyond the initial payment using the usual payment methods already registered and automatically bills it to Apple, Google or Kindle.

Providing opportunities for good fine motor development, synthesis with more planned cooking preparations, memorising and emotion recognition, this game is an effortless educator.

With easy access to the Developer’s web page on the app notes, the information provided is clear.
