[Not sure if scrambling around an eatery is your thing? Take a look at our Cooking Dash 2016 review.]
Have you just downloaded Cooking Dash 2016 and you're feeling a little intimidated? I don’t blame you. It’s a scary world out there. While we can’t offer you guides to how to complete each level most effectively, we can offer you a selection of tips and tricks to make that transition go a little more smoothly.
- KEEP BUSY - This is in caps because it’s such a ridiculously important point. Cooking Dash 2016 isn’t a game for idly sitting by and watching things unfold. If you’re not moving, you’re falling behind on something. Ever watch how a good waiter moves in a restaurant? Even if it’s quiet, they’re busy doing something. You should be doing the same here.
- Keep chopping - Tying into the previous point, make sure that vegetables are always being prepared. It takes time for your chef to chop things up and time is money. Keep him busy at all times. The food will stay in good condition so you won’t have to worry about waste.
- Use the resting areas effectively - You want to keep the grills constantly busy but you also don’t want to waste food. Food can overcook and burn, so make sure you move it to the resting area as soon as possible.
- Get used to the patterns - In early levels, when a new menu item is being introduced, it tends to be used a lot. For instance, when you first learn to make fries, nearly every customer wants a portion. Plan ahead with how you do things.
- Remember that you can carry two items at once - You can plan ahead then and queue up those movements. You can queue up to five actions so keep busy and be efficient in the path you take around the kitchen area.
- Focus on customers with shorter patience bars - When it runs out, they’ll leave and you’ll lose out on much needed money. Also, if you feed them when their bar is pretty high, they tend to tip fairly generously.
- If you need to slow things down, don’t pick up the tip immediately - With the tip sitting there, you don’t get a new customer. Given that Cooking Dash 2016 is time based, you don’t want to do this too often, but if you just need a quick breather to get back on track, it can really save you.
- Upgrade your grill as soon as possible - More efficient grills and more space to produce food is always a good thing.
- Improve your food - Don’t forget to upgrade specific foods either, ensuring they cook faster but spoil slower.
- Decorations help - Upgrade decorations to keep your customers happier for longer so that they’re not so impatient. Happy customers tip better too.
- Save up the premium currency for more resting areas - These are incredibly useful, which is why they’re expensive.
