Become a ‘Taco Master’ with Chillingo’s New Time Management Game

Taco Master Review-1

Rating: ★★★★½

Taco Master Review: The latest game by Chillingo is a fun time management game. Take orders and create delicious tacos as fast as you can to complete the game.

The gameplay is simple. You are given orders to make which you then select the correct ingredients and create the taco and finally give it to the customer. All must be created within a time limit and you have to reach a set amount of orders on each level.

The main game mode is career mode. When you first start at the beginning of each level it will tell you how many orders you need to make to move on to the next level. Then you will be shown the ingredients of items that can be placed inside to make the order. At the top of the screen is where your order will appear. You tap on it and it opens up to tell you what that customer requires. Then you get on and create it.

To create a taco you drag and drop a taco shell first then do the same for what ever ingredients are needed inside it. When it is ready then drag it to the order card and it will make the order disappear if you have completed it, if there are still more needed for the order then you just carry on until all are completed.

The customer orders will not stay there all the time though. After a set amount of time if they have not been served the order card will begin to shake. A sign that you need to hurry up and start making it for them. If you make one taco and pass it to them then it will stop shaking for a short while, but watch out as it will start up again. If you don’t make the order in time it will disappear and it will then be one less order on your target sheet.

Taco Master Review-3

The first handful of levels are very easy and I wasn’t sure if it was going to be any of a challenge at all but then as I progressed further it did quicken the pace a little.

You can make several tacos also on your tray at once which is ideal for when making a lot of the same orders. Another tip is to drag more than one item at a time just so you are working faster. The orders will disappear quick.

Once you have completed all the orders then the level ends. If you have enough orders you move on to the next level. If you have not then the game is over and you have to try that level again.

The career mode is where you work your way through the whole of the game. The other modes to play are Arcade which is where you play a level and see how high you can score in orders and money. This level needs to be unlocked first by completing several levels in the career mode. The last mode is Time Attack which again is locked. To unlock this you have to gift the app to several friends, although as you progress the amount of friends you have to gift reduces.

Taco Master {$.99} is integrated with Crystal to compete with friends online with your high score. It would have also be great if they added Game Center too. The game is accompanied with some catchy music although there was no Mexican feel to it which may have been nice to add the right sort of atmosphere.
