Management games have evolved considerably since the times of SimCity (1989), Railroad Tycoon (1990) or Them Park (1994). Almost 30 years later, these games have incorporated dozens of new options and have also been simplified, at least their respective adaptations to Android and iPhone, so that they can be played in our free time without having to spend hours on end glued to our screen (as we used to do on our video consoles and PC).
Find out what's going on in the life of your customers
And within these management or tycoon games, restaurants and cafeterias are one of the main themes, as proven by My Cafe: Recipes & Stories - World Restaurant Game, in which we'll help Ana, the main character, to open a cafe where she'll serve drinks and cakes to her clients.
Therefore, we'll have to prepare the order for peculiar customers with strange tastes and take care of details such as establishing the price list (make sure you make a profit but without being too expensive) and listening to the stories they tell you. This is probably the most particular aspect of this game as you can influence their lives by giving your opinion and advising them about what they should and shouldn't do. In other words, exactly what a business owner mustn't do.
Running your restaurant is as interesting as the lives of your customers.
In this strategy management game you'll have to take care of the following aspects:
- Get to know your customers and listen to the stories they tell you.
- Choose your own path within each story.
- Investigate the mysteries of your town and find out how they can have an impact on the game's plot.
- Manage every single aspect of your cafeteria.
- Design your restaurant with over 200 decoration elements.
- Discover special recipes.
- Develop your own business strategy.
- Manage your staff by hiring and training employees.
- Take part in social networks by visiting the cafeterias of your Facebook contacts.
