App description: Own a Bar Inside an RPG! -Simulation Management Meets Full Scale RPG-

#1 RPG in 27 Countries

I'm so high on this because it's the best of every world. I'm not spending hours and hours senselessly grinding, and I'm not cooking fake food until my eyes bleed. The mix of action and simulation feels right. The pacing is good. -toucharcade.com

It's a massive game, with a seriously smart idea that has been executed well. If you're hooked by RPGs and find simulations addictive, this game might just eliminate your free time altogether. -Pocket Gamer

We spent way more time than we bargained for with a near-final build as we got sucked into its intricacies, but weve managed to tear our thumbs away from the touchscreen long enough to write up some impressions. -iFanzine.com

Your sister's shabby tavern is facing a takeover by a rich restaurant owner, Gustav. The only way to save it is to become the most popular place in town!

-Adventure the World to Find Ingredients!
-Slice Up Monsters For Your Main Dish!
-Fish & Farm for Exotic Produce!
-Grow your revenue, complete quests, and win contests to rank up your bar!


Story
Kamerina's Bar is a typical tavern in the world of an RPG where adventurers gather to share information. YOU are the owner. Gustav, the rich neighborhood restaurant owner, is trying to buyout your tavern. Gustav is a powerful man, if you don't do anything, he will drive you out of business and force you to sell the bar! Best way to defend the take over? WIN THE CROWD! Become the most popular bar in town, so even Gustav can't touch you!

Game Play
- Slice Up Monsters for Your Main Dish!
Battles are the best way to get exotic ingredients. Slice up a dragon, and bring back its meat to cook dragon steak! Steal its eggs to make dragon omelets!

- Rank up Your Bar!
Cook with the ingredients gathered in your adventure. Serve customers and win contests to Rank up Your Bar and trigger RPG events. Do you have what it takes to analyze seasonal demand changes and combos?

-Eat to Level Up!
Unlike most RPGs, the characters in this game do not level up by fighting monsters. EXP is gained only through eating! Make enough food for your customers and party members. The better the food, the stronger they get.

- 400 Recipes
There are over 400 recipes in the game! Completing the recipe book will be a tough challenge. Lead your party members to over 10 dungeons in the game to look for rare ingredients!

iAPs are absolutely unnecessary for the full completion of the game. Only 50-70 hours of your time is! There is also no waiting time in the game. Its NOT a pay or wait game.
To all iPad users! This game is NOT universal. Although it is playable on the iPad, you will need to use the 2x zoom option to play it at full screen.

from some battles i would say that combat is similar to ff series, but even more basic and it really sucks. However there is an auto fight so it is good option. Wheel controls are so so too, they could really use better ui for iphone. The graphics are good and the game runs great. I expected you could make some simple dishes as you want but it seems like the game uses only list of predefined receipts and that makes the game not that fun.

You actually can, from what I understand from the first few minutes of playing. You can basically add whatever you want to a dish, and some combinations will result in recipes being discovered. Or did I misread your post?

I think he basically wants the ability to make our own or something. Like, for example, I can't have Mayonnaise on Bread, which I really enjoy in person.

The game has over four hundred different recipes, many of which can be found, discovered through random experimentation, by looking at existing recipes and playing around with ingredients or tools, or invented by using logic to create things that seem like they "should work".

I don't think it's really so unfair that you can't just throw any old crap together and have it count as a recipe, especially when many features in the game revolve around the things you make and their effects.

I'm not saying it's unfair. They did a really good job on the game, and I'm not dissing it.

That was more a general statement, and not directed at you specifically. ^_^

Is there an auto-battle option? If so, how sophisticated is it?
