Do you want fries with that?

The Good

It's time for hamburgers, and your job is to make four of them. Just put on your bun, your lettuce, your beef patties, and top it off with another bun. You do this by running over them to make them fall down to the next level until they have reached the bottom level, and once they have reached that far, run them over again to place them on the bun, one filling after another. Once all burgers are completed, you proceed to the next level. The hamburgers will definitely be tasteless, as you won't be putting cheese, pickles, or ketchup on them.

The catch? You must also avoid egg yolks, pickles, and hot dogs who will do their best to stop you from making the burgers. They will chase you around and around until they are able to knock you out and lose a life. Fortunately for you, you have a limited supply of peppers, which you can sprinkle on them to stun them for a few seconds. If you run out of peppers, you must grab the sundae that can be found on the top level. Remember, it won't stay on the screen for very long, and it appears only once in a level, so you must grab it within ten seconds or avoid getting close to your enemies.

You can also squash enemies on a level below you by running over the fillings, and letting it fall on them. Doing this will award you 200 points. The squashed enemies will appear on the screen good as new. The number of the enemies increase as you progress from level to level.

One thing about Burger Time is the fact that the game is challenging that you probably become addicted to it, and want to play it again in the future. Graphics in the C64 version are excellent and are a little bit ahead of the arcade version. The sound effects are average.

The Bad

There is no music that you can listen to while making hamburgers. The only music in this game is that from the title screen.

The Bottom Line

This game is addictive, you'll keep coming back for more. ***
