Train yourself to be the ultimate Masterchef.
Match the required ingredients or wash them with water.
Create delicious meals and serve them to your customers.
Do you want to be a Masterchef but terrified of Gordon Ramsay (whether virtual or live)? Then Hello Cooing Days is your next best casual game.
This fun and addictive match-3 game doesn’t have any resemblance to the Masterchef virtual game, which you can also find online. But, as its name suggests, it revolves around cooking. Different levels compose it, and levels cluster together with one big mission: to come up with an amazing dish you can serve to your customers.
To gather the ingredients, you need to play the various levels. Each has a specific task, although it tends to be repetitive. Some of the common ones include washing the ingredients properly with water and collecting certain produce.
As a match-3 game, it’s supposed to be easy – and it is, save for a few exciting challenges. The first one is washing the ingredients. It tends to have a hidden goal, which is to direct the flowing water to the faucet. You can set its path by creating your matches.
You will also come across certain items that seem to be out of place such as cookies or Gelatin-like white balls. In other similar games, they usually act as barriers. You need to clear them first before you can make some matches. With Hello, Cooking Days, you can still clear them with matches, but you can also swap them with other items on the grid. If you’re used to playing these types of match 3s, you may forget this one “deviation.”
Each level also has a limited number of moves, which is standard in match-3 games. The kicker is you have to make do of really limited moves. It can get your heart pumping a bit and your mind working on a strategy to make sure you don’t exhaust them.
If you want some motivation to finish quickly, there’s a reward if you can get three stars: you can have some items to decorate your meal.
Once you’ve completed the rounds, you have about an hour to serve them. There’s really no actual service happening, but you can use this time to take a pause. Of course, you can always proceed to the next dish.
The game progresses nicely, and along the way, you can collect boosters to help you meet the objectives more quickly. If you end the game, you still have 5 lives to consume. Perhaps the downside is it doesn’t have a lot of levels, which is understandable since it’s still in beta.
Hello, Cooking Days also has an amazing illustration. It possesses this cute and fun vibe across all levels. The images are clear while sound details are great. You can hear splashing water in the background, for example. These little touches make the game more sincere and cohesive.
As a Facebook game, it doesn’t have a leaderboard but allows you to play with friends. That makes it even more fun.
Hello, Cooking Days is a surprisingly unique and engaging match 3 game that you can surely play from start to finish.
