    Hi all,
    I'll like to tell you guys about BBQ Pro, a meat grilling simulation game that I made with a couple of artist friends.
    We made this on our weekends because we love cooking sims, BBQs and our iphones :) Check out the gameplay video on youtube.

    BTW, it's selling right now with an intro price of $0.99, price will go up after about a week.

    Are there flame effects that leave grill marks on the screen that you have to wipe off? That would be insane!

    Yum! Yum! Yum!

    Nice concept, but watching the video alone made me hungry; the actual game would be unbearable!

    Kk.

    I've played the game for a few and then watched my gf play for a little more; we both decided that it was a pretty fun app.

    The game play is easy. You chuck pieces of food unto a grill and BBQ until the food turns brown. You flip the food w/ taps and when both sides are done, you fling it off the grill. You get scored based upon the quality of your cooking and after enough points you progress to the next level. As you go through the game, you get different food types to cook (w/ varying BBQing times). My gf got to steak.

    If you watch the video, you will instantly understand the gameplay. So much so, that you will probably regret wasting your time by reading my synapsis.

    You'll never get those seconds back.

    Anyways, the graphics are nice and the sounds are well done. Again, you get exactly what you see in the youtube clip.

    I'm sure some of the cheapskates will beg for a lite version, but the game doesn't need one. You can figure out whether or not you'll find enjoyment by watching the clip. imho, the game is fun and a good value.

    Pick it up if you are in the mood for something clever and different.

    Thanks for the review!
    Did you try the 'Grill to Order' mode as well? This didn't make it into the gameplay video, it's a bit more challenging to play in that you have to grill a food item to match a picture on the top right corner, definitely takes a bit more time to get to the higher levels.

    The smell of hotdogs being grilled, the hissing and cackling of the steak as its being put on the... the game looks awesome. So awesome I'm salivating. It's so awesome, I'm being driven away, for I will never get a moment of gourmet rest with this game. Good job, guys :D

    Yeah, I downloaded it yesterday. I thought it was very good, the overall quality of the game is excellent. The only problem is that it makes me hungry. Well now I think of it, that's not such a bad thing :D

    This is a very polished and attractive app. The raw food on the grill gradually changes color as it cooks -- it is very subtle and really well done. Some stuff cooks quickly, like the small chicken pieces or hot dogs. Other stuff takes longer.

    It wasn't immediately evident what the goal was (Challenge mode), but as the levels progress your guests get more demanding and basically you need to cook enough food at once that you keep everyone's stomach full, which turns out to be quite challenging.

    Thanks for the freebie. This one is a keeper, and fun one to show off on the iPod.

    Wow, these graphics are really nice...I love how the food changes as it's getting cooked! I woudn't mind seeing some more items added to the grill in the future...maybe some salmon steaks, shrimp, portabellas, buns, etc.

    I was also thinking if it would be cool to have all the foods that can be cooked on the plate to be selected. There could be a challenge mode where you have to listen for orders like "burger, please" etc and you have to grill that...or have orders scrolling across the top of the screen, like two or 3 bars and you have to cook that item and serve it onto the plate before the order disappears from the other side of the screen. I don't know, just a couple of ideas.
