I usually find "burger" games a bit tedious, but this was surprisingly original. The levels get more challenging, but you can go back and try to better your score. Strategy is key in earning the top prize. I actually enjoyed the challenge of replaying the levels. This is definitely one of the better TM games I have played recently.

You need to be able to read to play this game. You must know which tasks to complete. I enjoyed the game when I figured out exactly what to do. I think your kids will love this game.

This game is alot of fun. It get's more and more challenging as you progress. The animation is great and the voice overs for the characters. It may be a little challenging for young children. I really enjoyed this game.

I am one of those obsessed players who has to get gold on all levels and have given up on gold for many levels. I will go back and see if I can't figure out a strategy for gold, but . . . . The game is challenging, but has great mechanics. You have to make sure you use your resources wisely. I wish that they would let you pick your own upgrades, but I do like the concept of getting upgrades as you advance on their success meter.

Still working on getting all gold -- and Level 23 is TOUGH -- but finally got the gold after many attempts. Good Value!

this game starts out pretty easy-make simple sandwiches-burgers/2 kinds of fish burgers. as the levels progress it does become increasingly more challenging. not only making the sandwiches, but adding condiments/cheese/lettuce/tomatoes-making 2 kinds of fries, onion rings, 3 kinds of pastries, scooping 3 kinds of ice cream, pouring 3 kinds of soda. i like that u can hire staff to help man all these stations. and the coffee that increases the staff's speed for a time is very helpful. the different customers were interesting-loved to hear the comments they make-one asks if there's fried chicken being sold. seeing your name move up the list of establishments makes u feel like you're accomplishing something. all in all a great TM game. it was challenging without being chaotic.

Wow, what a great challenge this game is! I don't know what it is about this particular game, but for some reason I found myself stubbornly refusing to give up on trying for gold in each level. Usually I don't care if I get gold. Now I'm trying to figure out how to get into the first place spot. I seem to be about 700 points short even though I got gold on each level and I'm only 5 smileys short (which would equal 15 points). I do wish they hadn't made it so hard to reach that last ranking, since it takes so much trouble to get all those gold trophies. You'd like to see it pay off when you do. But otherwise it's a great game. I did find myself looking online for tips to get through certain levels, but in the end it seemed to be random chance that got me gold on the hardest ones (particularly level 23).

As a big fan of time management games, this one is up there on my top list. It's a fast-food game where you have to make the food for the customers as quickly as possible. Unlike the other TM games, you don't necessarily keep what you bought in a previous level. Each level is set up more as strategic play instead of buying your way up the ladder. It can get tedious moving the employees in to different places, because the areas they are placed in can be small. If you don't place them just right, they will slide back to where they came from, or they sometimes misplace themselves behind another counter. If there are things clicked for that counter then you're stuck waiting for them to finish the queue before you can move them back to where you wanted them. The same goes for the burgers. If you don't move them exactly on the counter you want, they can end up having an ingredient you didn't want. In nearly any given level there really is no room for error. What I like about this game is the fact that you can make all of your food ahead of time. When the food is first made it shows steam coming from it, which will disappear after time. I thought that showed you its freshness, but it turns out it doesn't effect the food at all. Customers pay the same amount no matter how long it's sat there. If you make a mistake on a burger, you can throw it away without a monetary penalty. I also like that you keep your upgrades when they are earned, allowing you to go back to earlier levels and replay them with new upgrades. This is the only way to earn a gold trophy in some levels that are impossible to reach the first time you play them. I have decided to keep the Clicky/Thinky bar right in the middle, because it can be very clicky and very thinky on a busy level at the same time. Although the game does have its downside of having to be nearly perfect when placing employees or food at a specific counter, it is a very challenging game that involves fast fingers and a fast brain. I had no problems paying for this one.

Starts off slow but really picks up the pace. I like that you can make it through the levels with the chance to go back to improve if you want. Probably a little too fast for kids, but a good TM game all around.

I enjoyed playing this game. It pull you in but it the creators didn't make it so easy where you beat everything and got bored really quick. There are about 8 levels on the normal round and stages within those levels. Then there are modes you play under which adds to the replay value. Its a fun game, that I recommend.

Really Enjoying this game.... Still trying to get all gold, but I'll get there. Highly recommend this for the "Time Management" fan.

Considering I'm not too big on TM games cause I normally play HOG games and only a few of these TM games I like and I can keep up with, well this was pretty fun. Starts out pretty easy as you're just making plain hamburgers, fish, chicken sandwiches but as you move along adding more things onto the sandwich. Then there is also other food such as French Fries, onion rings, ice cream, and drinks. Lots to do here. What I really liked about this game is you can make upgrades during the level if you have enough money, like hiring more employees to help. You don't have to wait for the level to end. Each employee has a job to do; one will make sandwiches, one will add the condiments, one to wrap sandwiches, one for ice cream, one for drinks; but if you don't have quite enough help to cover all the stations and not enough money to hire at present time, you can move the employees you do have to stations needed. For me anyway this got challenging but not chaotic. Oh and don't forget to click on the coins as those are your tips before they disappear. You can also give the customers candy if you see they are getting impatient. Thanks GAMEHOUSE... GREAT GAME!

Based on reviews, decided to give this game a try. I just spent the last 2 hours or so playing. It's not my favorite game but it is somewhat addicting. I had told myself I didn't think it would purchase it but when my trial ran out, my first thought was darn, I was trying to finish that level! LOL Needless to say, I'm the proud owner now. Likes: I like that some things (such as serving to a customer) take one right click to dispatch. I like that you can hire more employees and choose where to concentrate their efforts. I like the variety of food & drink available and how quick it is to prepare them (1 click also). I like how you get new upgrades based on beating the names in the high score list. Dislikes: Sometimes it's hard to tell who you still owe what to (in the customer queue). I get tired of dragging the burgers to the various stations (though I'm not sure how else you could do it since there are 3 types of burgers and 3 toppings). The tips you barely even hear and have limited time to grab them. Consistently, when I would get tips I would notice them just in time to see them vanish. Your eyes really never go up to that portion of the screen because you are too busy with orders. Also wish there was an audible sound to indicate when customers are starting to get mad so you could react to it. Actually, there might be but if there is, it isn't very distinctive to catch your attention. Pretty fun game, not the best, not the worst. I'd give it 3 out of 5 stars.

This game is fun, fun, fun. Its takes awhile to level up later in the game but its worth it. Its addictive. When is Burger Bustle 2 coming out?

This game takes restaurant management to a new level. One is the manager of a fast food joint, and much direct staff to create the orders. There's a person to make the burgers, one to wrap them, and one to add condiments. With each order, you have to detail the workers to make the right burger, with the right condiments, and quickly enough to please the customer. In other levels, one can add desserts and drinks. More staff can be hired, even in the middle of the level, if you've enough cash. I almost passed this one up, because the screenshots look complicated. It's not at all complicated, and the tutorial is very easy to follow. The customer comes in, asks for either fish or hamburger. You click on the fish grill or the hamburger grill. When the sandwich is done, it goes to the condiment person or the wrapper. Each staff member does their own job, and the wrapper will automatically give the order to the customer for you. My biggest problem playing this game was forgetting to pick up burgers from the condiment tables, and sending them on to the wrapper. It's easy to focus on just one aspect, which in my case was the making of the actual burger, rather than topping it off. I think this game will be easy enough for children, and I think they'll enjoy it. It's certainly refreshing for an adult who's tired of the same 'ol same ol'. I definitely recommend this one!

I've only played the demo to this game, but I really liked it. I especially liked that there were 8 different places and 64 levels rather than 5 and 50 or 25, and they are all different from what I can see. I was skeptical at first, because I thought it would be something like the Burger Rush (or whatever they are called) games where you take buns and chesse and burgers etc... off of a conveyer (sp?) belt and put them together, which I do not like at all (I think they are extreamly tedious and boring, as well as annoying). This game is not like that, it is like the other TM games I like, so I would recommend it to anyone. :-)

Lots of fun and very challenging - but some levels appear impossible to get ANY trophy, much less gold. Level 50 appears relatively simple (plain hamburgers and chicken sandwiches) but the customers won't even order the chicken sandwiches until well after the time for a trophy has elapsed - regardless of how fast you process the orders for the misc items.

What a fun time mgmt game! I have replayed this several times - the upper levels really require planning and attention to goals in order to beat them - like the characters - the different sounds - even the comments the customers make

I occasionally have BB just randomly quit on my brand new Lion system, but this is a great game for rushing around! It requires more thinking ahead than most TM games, but there is a fair amount of fast paced clicking in the meantime - I would definitely recommend a mouse, not a touchpad for this game. The basic game is quite easy, make burgers and snacks to serve, however it gets much more difficult from there. Often goals are based on the customers' random choices, so replaying a level over and over again might be necessary to get the right orders to complete a trophy. However, the game progresses no matter what your score is, so it is nice to just pick up and play. You can go back to earlier levels with upgrades you earn, but I realized you have to do this before the last level as you are locked out after that! I am on my second playthrough trying to unlock the "relaxed" mode, which sounds more fun, but then again I find myself returning to try that last level "just one more time" even if I'm all clicked out, because I want that next upgrade! As others have mentioned, the customers' comments are either annoying or funny, so I play on mute about half the time, but like what the authors were trying to do with it.
