Burgertime Worldtour is a platformer that is developed by Monkey Paw games and published by Konami. Burgertime Worldtour is a remake of a classic arcade game from the 1980’s.
The gameplay revolves around making burgers by walking over parts of the burger that are stacked in order up the framework of the level you are playing. There are usually more than one burger to create on each level. Burgertime has 50 levels in total to play taking you to different parts of the world, with 10 levels in each section, including a boss level at the 10th level of each section. Areas include America and France. Enemies in the game are burger parts, such as pickles and ‘Sonny’ the egg, with some enemies capable of following you down ladders or jumping. You character has a few defences to these enemies including pepper to stun them, and special power ups that can be collected and used in conjunction with the pepper. After you stun a pickle etc, you can then pick up the enemy and score combo points on creating a burger by chucking it on a piece, causing all the pieces below it to fall right to the plate as well.
Graphically it’s just a stylised HD remake; the graphics are simple but pretty nice looking at the same time. Colours are bright but are not too cluttered so it’s easy to see what’s going on. The enemies are of a decent size against the character and the environments so that they don’t get in the way too much. A nice touch to the game is that you can also play as your Xbox Avatar and some of the cut scenes are nice nicely presented and sometimes funny.
This game has a fairly long shelf-life with its 50 levels to play through and with a ranking system; dedicated players will strive to 5 stars every level. This game doesn’t have any difficulty levels as such however if you fail a level so many times in a row it does ask you if you want to go into easy mode where the scores aren’t saved and it gives you more pepper and less enemies to face off against aslo the highest rank you can earn is only 2 stars.
It’s simple concept and simple gameplay like the original game. The game has some challenging levels and a lot of commitment to get the highest scores and medals.
Nice clean characters and levels are presented in a way that suits its 2.5D environment. It’s audio is distracting and doesn’t add to the game as you can play it on mute quite easily.
Plenty of levels to play, which are all repeatable to earn a higher star ranking, Also the addition of 12 achievements for 200G and one being 5 star all the levels means that it will take time for any achievement hunters to complete.
It’s a fun game, a nice reimagining of an old classic, which is well presented and easy to pick up from the off.
