    As Chef Peter Pepper, you must fend off the Food Foes while making perfect burgers! Each ingredient is located on a different platform, and you must climb a series of ladders in order to reach them all. Walk across the ingredient to drop it closer to the waiting plate below. Once all the burgers have been completed, you’ll be able to move on to the next level. Use pinches of pepper to stun Mr. Hot Dog, Mr. Egg and Mr. Pickle.

    Chef Pepper is moving fast setting up fresh hamburger buns to receive crisp lettuce, juicy tomatoes, and the golden cheese perfectly sliced and ready to top off his magnificent hamburger creations. But wait! Will lunch be lost? There are enemies out there with no taste at all. They're called the Food Foes and they're pulling out all the stops to send Chef Pepper and his culinery delights down the drain!

    GAME PLAY: You are the magnificent Chef Pepper, maker of the world's greatest hamburgers. The better you are at making burgers, the faster you can advance through the six levels of play--each more difficult than the last! It's not so easy with Mr. Hot Dog, Mr. Pickle, and Mr. Egg. Sprinkle pepper to stop them cold and let you pass by. Sprinkle pepper on several at once for a higher score. Hit them with burger patties or any other handy ingredients and they'll be out of your way with fatal indigestion!

Gulp some coffee or gobble some fries and you store some extra pepper. Get through the seventh maze and you are a certified burger-maniac.

    Pickles, eggs, and hot dogs relentlessly chase your chef through the maze. Be smart and be quick but most of all, carry plenty of pepper.

    Give nasties a ride on a falling bun to score the big points. Watch out though! These nasties never die.
