This looks really cute. Is it similar to Sushi-Go-Round? That's been my favorite sushi time management game on iOS, though it's quite short.

Cheers.

Hi Georgina, it's different from Sushi-Go-Round. Why don't you have a go at it? I am sending you a PM now. Check it soon

Thanks to izam for the code. Some quick thoughts.

Graphics are cute, especially the polar bear sushi chef. Load times seem slightly sluggish given the one-screen nature of the game. Sound effects are well chosen.

This is basically a serving game. Customers come in, you choose the sushi they're after in the right order and hand it over. There is no creation, at least in the first nine levels, apart from pouring drinks. There's also no way to tell when a sort of sushi is running low until you're out of it; similarly, there's no way to re-order sushi until your current stock is gone. You're thus left entirely to the mercies of the game, and if you happen to run out of something right when you need it, tough. This is particularly annoying when the customer orders two of something -- you cannot tell you don't have two until you've put the first one on the order tray, and then you either have to bin it or wait for the new stock to be made before you can continue. (At least until you upgrade to two trays.)

Thus, essentially, there's no real management in this time management game, where management is defined as things you can do to make the level run more smoothly, get the customers through faster, plan ahead, etc. It would be better described as an action game, I think.

Also, there only seems to be eighteen levels. Given it took me maybe half an hour to get through the first nine, that's fewer than I would expect.

Sorry I can't be more positive. I think the pieces for a good game are here, but the gameplay itself needs to be rethought to give the player more agency.

Cheers.
