Packed with personality and an adequate challenge, players may be disappointed that this fun food ride ends perhaps a bit too soon.

Retro Game Age (8 out of 10)

Man Taito were truly on a roll in 1992, with the likes of Kick Master, the phenomenal Little Samson, Power Blade 2, and now Panic Restaurant under their belt. These were all gems that deserve a higher profile. Panic Restaurant in particular is hard to find as it suffered from a low print run and I say if you are a fan of platformers and can find it at a reasonable price go for it.

Though the stages are perhaps harder than those in most platformers on the system, there simply aren't enough of them. This is a small complaint, really, at least in this day and age. After all, if you find this game you're not likely to have spent much money in the effort. And for a few bucks, this is the perfect platformer. It's charming, it's fun, and you can use it to fill that half-hour before work. By all means, pick it up if you can find it.

Power Unlimited (8 out of 10)

Panic Restaurant is een van de smakelijkste platformspellen aller tijden. Likkebaardend werk je jezelf in dit spel door de zes levels heen, want overal bevindt zich lekker eten. De sappige graphics en knapperige humor dragen hier alleen maar meer aan bij.

Pour cela, je ne vous le recommande pas à moins d'être un collectionneur. Autrement, si vous pouvez l'avoir pour pas cher, ou en émulation, c'est un petit jeu que je recommande de bon coeur :)

Get lives, points, extra health, if you fancy you’re fancy enough. Panic Restaurant was handcrafted by the artisans at Taito for your enjoyment. If you’re looking for a game with personality, please do not hesitate to enjoy.

Die Grafik ist für NES Verhältnisse sehr lecker: Die Hintergründe sind schön bunt, das Koch-Sprite und die feinde witzig animiert. Die Steuerung stellt sogar Mario Fans zufrieden (...) Die Musik wird lustig, fetzig und melodisch zum Spiel serviert. Spielspaß, Musik und die Grafik werden auf großer Flamme gegrillt. Mein Tip: Zugreifen bevor's Euch einer wegfrißt!

It's a shame the developers didn't add more variety and improve the level design as there's the seed of a really good game here. Don't get me wrong, Panic Restaurant is fun but by the final stage you'll start to grow tired of its thin gameplay.

Panic Restaurant is the epitome of a solid game. It isn’t complicated, doesn’t feature any innovative features but does what it does well. It doesn’t reach the heights of Taito’s other late NES titles but it does not have to. The only issue is finding it. The game is exceedingly rare and while I like it don’t pay the exorbitant prices it goes for.

Das Spiel basiert auf einer völlig neuen Idee. Im Panic-Restaurant wird der Menü-Gang nicht aufgegessen sondern bekämpft. Der Koch läßt sich gut steuern und Grafik und Musik sind nicht von schlechten Eltern. Wer ein völlig neues Jump and Run Spiel mit neuen Ideen haben möchte, sollte zugreifen.
