Earlier this afternoon, Eli and I sat down with Cafeteria Nipponica ($4.99). It’s a restaurant simulation game that puts you in the shoes of owner, floor manager, and head chef across a total of five cafes. Mechanics-wise, you’ll be doing a lot of clicking — by cruising the game’s various bits of UI, you’ll be able to discover and make new dishes, as well as create or cultivate new business opportunities.
If you’ve played, say, Game Dev Story ($4.99) or Pocket Academy ($5.99), you’ll probably feel at home with Cafe Nippon. One aspect we’re digging in particular is the game’s scale. You can build several restaurants and manage them all at the same time. This makes for a much more interesting simulation game.
Anyway, feel free to check it out. We’re thinking you’ll dig, too:
