Wanted to share some information about our upcoming game Mucho Taco with you. You might have seen the stories on the main site about it, but here is a little more.
Mucho Taco! is a fun, vibrant and beautiful take on the idle clicker genre with a unique swiping mechanic as opposed to the traditional tappers/clickers. Mucho is all about harnessing the power mystical “Sun Tortilla” to build your taco empire. With the help of Barbacoatl, a self proclaimed “tacologist”, you must create as many tacos as you can, while managing multiple taco restaurants, smashing piñatas and throwing epic fiestas.
The game comes from One Simple Idea, a Mexican studio that wears their love of their Mexican culture on their sleeves. The game is chalked full of traditional Mexican flavor, from the artwork to the tacos themselves. And I can attest that after numerous play sessions, I have left hungry for real tacos. With beautiful pixel art and a wonderful soundtrack, it is just an overall joy to play. Whether you are unlocking the next level of tacos, throwing a fiesta, upgrading or buying new restaurants or completing oven quests, the game always has something fun for you to do.
There are 2 main areas of Mucho Taco!, the taco creation screen and the passive restaurant investing. On the taco screen, players must swipe to create as many tacos as they can. The taco per swipe is determined by the level of taco ingredients you have unlocked. As you create tacos you will notice your piñata meter filling. Once full, you can smash the piñata for tons of great prizes. There are also “Oven Quests” that when completed, create a “super piñata!” that has an even bigger prize waiting for you. (ps I love talking about this game)
The other main area is the restaurant screen. Here you can purchase new stands that passively collect tacos for you, as well as upgrade their production and operating hours. You can also supply each stand with special “Salsa Boosters”. (Did I mention I love talking about this game?) These boosters can be added to each restaurant to maximize their taco production. Each restaurant is only open for a certain time frame, so you have to wake them up to ensure max taco production. Utilizing which salsa ingredients (limes, cilantro, avocados etc) to use on which restaurants based on their open time creates a great meta game for hardcore players who want to get the most out of their production.
There are a ton of other secrets to uncover in Mucho Taco!, such as the mysterious “Mucho Suerte” but Ill leave those for you to discover on your own.
