Feed the reanimated corpses/customers as fast as you can and don't let them starve on your premises or the Undead Health Department (UHD) will shut you downand beware of the thieving rat!

Too young to recall the "Corpse Uprisings" of the 1950s? Older relatives may claim it never happened. The science is complex, but basically, atomic radiation mixed with toxins from experimental Hula-Hoop plastics. The unique frequency of "Rock 'n' Roll" then vibrated this unstable molecule, creating a toxic substance that raised the dead. The "Former Corpses" ate human flesh, so the government created facilities that sold bodies willed to the cause. As teens, your grandparents likely worked at one of these facilities called, "DINERS of the DEAD". The plan succeeded and within a few years, the "Undead" quietly disintegrated or went into politics.

Now PHUNAN GAMES (http://phunan.com) proudly announces "DINER of the DEAD", a thrilling and educational iPhone/iPod game commemorating this neglected period of history!

DISCLAIMER: (Most) storylines are fictional and the hand-drawn corpses in this game are not meant to resemble real people. But please, if they do, email us a picture!

I picked this one up the other day when I saw it, primarily because I really liked the artwork and the music. Amazing job with the art style, very cool looking.

Gameplay is pretty basic IMO, though as the game progresses it gets more hectic and fun. Some basic suggestions:

-Difficulty level, so I don't have to start out with the slow levels in the beginning.
-Online Leaderboards, this game screams for it.
-More audio cues. Like when I get rid of the rat, it should squeal or something. And when I pick up body parts and place them on the cutting board, there should be an audio cue for each of those actions. I know there were several times when I thought I had "picked up" and ingredient and I had missed it.
-Some added gameplay elements, like maybe adding a bonus if you place the ingredients on the cutting board in the exact order that the customer asks for them in. Or some type of in game event that scrambles around all the ingredients.

Pretty game, great music with some basic, but fun gameplay.
