I was kind of happy to see another Play First game in the Dinertown line up. It is great to see all these spin-offs that came from the original Diner Dash, but Dress Shop Hop left me very unsatisfied. We meet with another new business owner that is trying to follow the Robots ideal of “See a need, fill a need” in Dinertown, but Bobbie’s business venture needs some tweaking.
While this game has all the normal graphics as the other Dinertown games, the droning music, and the impatient customers make this game not very fun, and the fact that in the beginning levels, the weaving and sewing machines just don’t seem to move fast enough to keep your customers happy. This is custom clothing here, haute couture, not a fast-food drive thru, but these people are wanting these silly retro styles made before they can complete their cellphone call. If I was Bobbie, I’d head down to Flo’s and ask for a job as a waitress or hostess, because the people of Dinertown are turning into rhymes-with-witches, and that includes the guys!

What kind of drugs were the devs on when they came up with this? I know Lunch Rush has been out since 2007, and just pretty much another form of Diner Dash, but I don’t remember the game being this annoying. Then they decide to make it HD? Just… wow! words don’t escape me, because there is plenty to say, but how to say it is making me confuzzled.
Snowy the Bear has decided to join into a restaurant contest, and whomever wins gets the fun adventure of owning a restaurant for life, and he’s brought his friend Brownie in on this. While some of his antics can be cute, the customers are rather annoying, and really impatient. The only upside is that they don’t have any undead natural enemies like the vampires and werewolves in Dead Hungry Diner. While it is cute and fun, and kids might like it, it seems to be another restaurant dash game with a newer, brighter paint job. How many more of these are going to glut the casual games market? The most amusing thing I got from this game was some strange looks from my husband when Snowy was singing to keep the waiting crowd entertained. I, however, was not, and went back to my MMO.

Normally, I really like the Diner Dash series of games from Playfirst, so when I saw that the gave Flo her own time-traveling adventure, I was all over it. I was very disappointed. I was really looking forawrd to seeing Flo take on dinosaurs, knights, pirates, and even aliens, but I could not get out of the Stone Age. Flo and Grandma were stuck in the Dinertown version of Bedrock, and I was about ready to turn that big dinosaur in the Caveman Cafe’ into brontosaurus burgers!
It started out pretty much like most of the Diner Dash games do, and the common customers were there. The spunky girls, the harried businesswomen, the tourists, the families, and the bookworms. In Diner Dash: Flo Through Time, the chatty-Cathy cellphone addicts had been replaced by boisterous cavemen, and there were even some picky lovebirds that would not be seating at anything but a duo table. While we had to deal with these persnickety customers, there was also the attention hound of a brontosaurus that would get angry and stomp if it didn’t get petted like a cute little puppy every once in awhile.

Diner Dash Flo on the Go is the third game in the Diner Dash franchise, and it is just as fun as the others, but there are some frustrating moments along the way. New kinds of customers with odd demands, like the tourists, who ask for pictures to be taken, and the big guy who always asks for seconds. Some the classic customers are there too, like the impatient businesswomen, and the cellphone addicts. Poor Flo, just after getting five great restaurants up and running, and saving five more, a vacation is needed, and she’s still hitting the dining room, but this time it’s mobile. On cruise ships, dirigibles, and even spaceships, she and her friend from the sidewalk cafe, Darla, are getting around, and sometimes they will even be running noms to these kooky customers in the dark, using flashlights to get around. Diner Dash Flo on the Go gets us away from Dinertown for a bit, but the diner never leaves Flo, and we even get to dress her for the occasion, as most ladies love to do on vacation. Take a staycation at your own desk, and join Flo and Darla for Diner Dash Flo on the Go during your lunchbreak today. Read more...(214 words, 31 images, estimated 51 secs reading time)
