About cooking games
To some, playing online cooking games may seem like a drag, but the truth is that it is one of the most popular categories of online games out there… and there is a good reason for it!
These games can be entertaining, educational, and challenging, all at once. They traditionally support cute and colorful graphics that make them more visually appealing. The fact that players are exposed to different recipes, food preparations, and ingredients also helps stimulate their cooking creativity and may even help them learn some cooking terms which they would otherwise never get to know. Finally, as “games” they obviously support challenging features to make them exciting and addictive.
There are as many cooking games as there are foods and food preparations around the world. For example, in the Papa’s game series alone, you can cook and manage a sushi restaurant in Papa’s Sushiria or prepare delicious pancakes in Papa’s Pancakeria.
Another popular category of online cooking games is time management. These games put less emphasis on the recipes and more on quickly preparing the food to serve the customers while they are in high spirits. Losing customers can have a different impact depending on the game.
In Julia’s Food Truck, for example, losing a client implies losing the game. In The Smurfs Cooking game, on the contrary, it only means lost revenue which may or may not be important to achieve the overall goal to pass the level.
Idle cooking games like Marie Prepare Treat are also popular for their relaxing features. These games are solely centered around cooking and/or baking without pressure. The players can have fun getting to know the ingredients and mixing them and perhaps even learn a recipe or two.
