Marketed as a free mobile game that is available on iOS and Android devices. The game boasts surpassing 20 million downloads worldwide. While the game is popularly known as an “app,” there is a version available to purchase for the Nintendo DS portable game system (approximately $15). In the game, players are tasked with “cooking” various meals using the device’s touch screen. The user follows instructions from a character, called “Mama,” who instructs the user to complete different tasks, from chopping, to mashing, to grating, to kneading, etc. Gameplay consists of a progression through a series of short minigames to achieve the title of “Special Chef.” When using Nintendo DS, players can cool down hot food by blowing into the device’s microphone.
Players expressed frustrated in the app versions due to the fact that, while it is marketed as a free game, in reality, it’s not. Users are forced to purchased “recipe packs” (approximately $4 per pac), if they want to advance from level to level at a steady pace. The in-app coins earned for completing a level are often not enough to unlock new recipes. A nintendo DS user commented, “Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great game-just nothing like the DS version. Personally I love the DS version, and while this one is great, I’d prefer it if it was more like the DS.” Another user said, “Prepare to spend money. Game not free.”
