i like serving and time management games,and this one fit the bill. it starts out easy,then as each level progresses,the customers get more angry and the food needs to be served faster. this game is very clicky,you have to click on the money and the hearts to get the money. overall.it is addicting,but i got all the upgrades fast and it will bore a lot of people after awhile.

This game was very challenging even in the easy mode. Some levels have to be replayed to get the hang of it, which makes it refreshing compared to the usual time management games. I loved the storyline and the graphics. It could be very addicting.

That time management game is one of the best games I have eve played. In that story, there's something that you have to know before you become wise: no one makes gifts, you have to earn all your life what you need. That lesson is always true and the teenagers of that game, at the end of it, will learn to earn bread every day. I recommend it to all people: it's too much important to learn now that lesson than when time is expiring.

like the premise of this game-selfish children having to learn to pay their way. the pace quickly picks up as you play. it's repititious, but i didn't get bored. had more impatient customers than patient ones. boy do you have to serve them fast. i played the normal mode. like the graphics in this one. good game...

Don't be fooled by the cartoon drawings. This is a pretty good time management game. It's typical in that you run fast to serve people who are lined up at the counter. But it's got an extra challenge on each level. For example, in the first venue which is as far as I've got (playing in Normal mode), in one level you have to serve a certain number of people in a row to get a bonus; in another you have to set off fireworks which you earn by collecting stars that fill up the fireworks bucket. Mostly, you click to accomplish these things. However, to collect the money paid, you run your cursor over the money that comes flying out after you've clicked on the customer. There's no dragging of customers around in this game. You can switch between Normal mode and Easy anytime. There is plenty of variety in upgrades, and the pace at which the player can achieve them seems reasonable. Upgrade of the building is separate from operational upgrades. In other words, money earned will buy you better carpeting, more juicers and the like, but if you want Katy the waitress to run faster, you have to meet the individual challenges. Gameplay is mostly smooth. At first I had a lag in play and in one instance, the game stopped. All I had to do was Restart the level and I was in business again. Storyline, well--a brother and sister are trying to earn enough money to get home from an island they were dropped off on, not too original there. It's not a huge file and definitely worth a download for people who like TM games.

If you like TM and service related games, this is a buy. The pace of the game is fast even on easy mode. If you found the DASH games challenging but hated the matching part, you will LOVE this game. If clicking and clicking is not your thing, pass. This game will drive you nuts. I completed and got gold for all levels on easy mode. Now trying normal. Happy gaming!

May I'm spoiled by Emily's, dash or cake mania format, this game play doesn't make much sense. Some upgrades don't seem to do anything besides being a mere decoration. It's fast pace and clicky even in a normal mode. You don't really get to do much thinking/planning. Mini games are very clicky and skipping it will cost you upgrade. While it has interesting unique components/story line and it's fun to play clicking away to a point, it still has room for improvement.

I love playing this game. It is very clicky. I keep forgetting though to click on the money once they have paid. I get a bit obsessed with reaching the other task set especially setting the fireworks of so many times. All in all a fun game for all ages.

This game was extremely fun to play. It was very refreshing to play, especially since the game has a lot of unique elements. The storyline is definitely an original; a father wants to teach his two kids how to stop being spoiled and actually work for their money. So, you mainly play as Katy with Bob working at the bar. It's the standard format for a restaurant TM game; give your customers a menu, take their order, make their order, give them their order, and collect money. One of the unique parts of the game is that you have your standard goal and your expert goal for each level, but you also have a bonus goal for each level. The money earned from the standard/expert goals and the money earned from the bonus goals are different and they go toward different upgrades for the restaurant or the staff. I really enjoyed playing this game and I hope they make a part two. If you enjoy time management games, I'm pretty sure you'll love this.

This game was so much fun my 4 year old nephew mastered the art of achieving expert scores. Some were truly tough for him so I would help him can't wait for the next Katy and Bob adventure.

The story is not original, the upgrades are not original,it's the same dinner dash style game. It's nice, but I have seen it before.

Another GREAT Time Management game. I have played this one over and over and over again and never get tired of it. It's a little harder at the beginning since you don't have enough money for upgrades but once you get going, the money flows in and upgrades are easily attainable. You can get going too fast and get ahead of yourself too if you're not careful. Don't put too many drinks in the freezer at once...;) Lots of people and monkeys, yes, monkeys to serve. I love the fireworks displays for the customers and they bring in bigger bucks to help pay for the upgrades. Set them off as often as you can. If you like to run around fast, doing this and that and the other, then this is a game for you!

I really enjoyed this game, as I am a big fan of time-management games and am always looking for new ones to play. The storyline is fairly easy to follow and it's quite fun. As for the game play, it's not too complicated. It's the typical restaurant time-management game; you hand the customer a menu, you make their food, you hand their food to them, then you collect money. The thing that makes this game unique is that if you set off fireworks, which you earn by filling up a heart meter with hearts you earn from creating combos, you earn extra money from each customer and in addition you boost their mood. I also like how they have the standard and expert goals in order to pass the level, but they also have sub-tasks that you can complete within each level in order to earn money to buy artifacts, which is separate from the money you earn to buy restaurant upgrades. Overall, I'd say it's definitely worth playing if you're a time-management fan.

This game was fun although I finished it rather quickly even though there are 60 levels. I found that I wanted more levels after it ended because it was so fun. The only thing I would have loved to see is them offer Katy a helper to do little thing sin addition to her borther who only mixed drinks. This game was a good way to kill time.

You get your money with this one. It's pretty addictive too

In this game, two teenagers who didn't take care of the family business are receiving from their father a very important lesson that they don't never forget: in fact, they are sent on a trip that will teach them to earn money for the return to their home. Nothing in our life is free, we have to save money for our future because it isn't known from no one. Tomorrow I could have a good day but also a bad day, if I am without money I can't do nothing for myself. Self reliance is very important for all of us, this game is very useful also for kids: they have to learn to save now moey for the future. I recommend it to all people of all ages.

Quirky characters, great story line, how can you not love this game? :) Loved the choices of improvements as well with your coins and I LOVE the 'feeding the monkeys' aspect! Great job!
