If you’re a fan of the genre, a fan of Plants vs Zombies, or looking for something casual and addictive, there aren’t many better things we could suggest for the price than Dead Hungry Diner.
Indie Game Magazine
It’s a lovely little game to tune out with a cartoony (kind of Plants vs. Zombies) art style. If you think that a light-hearted restaurant time-management game will entice you even the slightest bit, Dead Hungry Diner should be your first choice.
In the end, Dead Hungry Diner proves that there still is a lot of room for improvement and innovation in the time management genre. While layout and basic mechanisms are easily recognizable for genre fans, the game still offers enough twists to feel fresh. Considering the long playing time, two different modes, loads of humor and stellar production values, it’s without a doubt a shoo-in for players who enjoy time management games with a dash of black humor.
Dead Hungry Diner isn’t quite the momentous achievement for casual games as, say, Plants vs. Zombies is, but it’s hard to dislike what’s there. Even the most wretched, evil fiends of darkness start to grow on you as the game goes on, and Gabriel and Gabriella are lovable themselves. It feels silly to root for children who’d rather cook for monsters and send them to their graves and coffins happy than rid the Earth of their scourge, as Vandra would have it, but that’s part of the fun. For $10 (or less if you buy now on Steam), Dead Hungry Diner is the perfect investment for any peckish gamer looking for a quick and meaty bite.
