Adventure Bar Story Review

By all rights Adventure Bar Story should be a delightfully odd rpg romp, but it feels eerily lifeless.

I don’t know why, but adding “zombies” to any genre of app seems to instantly make it cooler. So I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised to see that yet another zombie game is making its debut—though Capcom’s Zombie Cafe adds a unique twist. Instead of killing zombies…you’re employing them! The app’s description lays out the basic premise nicely:

It’s hard to find good help, which is why you’ve partnered with an evil corporation to use zombies as free labor to build your café empire.

Makes perfect sense to me! Anyway, as the manager of your new Zombie Cafe, you’re responsible for catering to your customers’ every whim and milking them for their money. It seems to be based on restaurant sims like Diner Dash, but with zombie-themed additions. Zombie-themed fare has replaced normal diner dishes, so for example, you’ll be getting a “handburger and flies” instead of a normal burger. And if you’re short on staff, you can even inject your customers with a toxin to turn them into more zombie minions. (What was that about evil corporations again?) However, by the same token, if you work a zombie too hard it may decide to munch on your customers, which is hardly good for business. Additionally, you can send your zombie minions to attack your competition, stealing toxin and recipes from other cafes.

These combined undead twists add up to a humorous almost-parody of a rather repetitive genre. If Diner Dash and its clones feel just too vanilla for you, a helping of brainy humor might be just what you need. Plus, it’s nice to see a zombie game that adds more than just a “skin.” Too often zombies replace humans just because they look more menacing, but these undead waiters actually do change the gameplay.

While Capcom hasn’t released a gameplay trailer, check out the video below for a revolting teaser clip:



Should you wish to try your hand at zombie-restaurant-management, Zombie Cafe is lurking in the App Store for the low, low price of free.

FREE!
