“I'm so high on this because it's the best of every world. I'm not spending hours and hours senselessly grinding, and I'm not cooking fake food until my eyes bleed. The mix of action and simulation feels right. The pacing is good.” -toucharcade.com
“It's a massive game, with a seriously smart idea that has been executed well. If you're hooked by RPGs and find simulations addictive, this game might just eliminate your free time altogether.” -Pocket Gamer
“We spent way more time than we bargained for with a near-final build as we got sucked into its intricacies, but we’ve managed to tear our thumbs away from the touchscreen long enough to write up some impressions.” -iFanzine.com
Your sister's shabby tavern is facing a takeover by a rich restaurant owner, Gustav. The only way to save it is to become the most popular place in town!
-Adventure the World to Find Ingredients!

Best way to defend the take over? WIN THE CROWD! Become the most popular bar in town, so even Gustav can't touch you!
- Slice Up Monsters for Your Main Dish!
Battles are the best way to get exotic ingredients. Slice up a dragon, and bring back its meat to cook dragon steak! Steal its eggs to make dragon omelets!
- Rank up Your Bar!
Cook with the ingredients gathered in your adventure. Serve customers and win contests to Rank up Your Bar and trigger RPG events. Do you have what it takes to analyze seasonal demand changes and combos?
-Eat to Level Up!
Unlike most RPGs, the characters in this game do not level up by fighting monsters. EXP is gained only through eating! Make enough food for your customers and party members. The better the food, the stronger they get.
- 400 Recipes
There are over 400 recipes in the game! Completing the recipe book will be a tough challenge. Lead your party members to over 10 dungeons in the game to look for rare ingredients!
※iAPs are absolutely unnecessary for the full completion of the game. Only 50-70 hours of your time is! There is also no waiting time in the game. It’s NOT a pay or wait game.
※To all iPad users! This game is NOT universal. Although it is playable on the iPad, you will need to use the 2x zoom option to play it at full screen.
What's New in Version 1.7
I can’t stand IAP, But...
First off I am not at all a huge fan of IAP! However, I have to give a huge pardon to RideonJapan for this game is really, really awesome! The game doesn’t pressure you to buy extra jewels but they are there just in case. Otherwise you can play this game as is without IAP but there is so much stuff in here I actually broke down and bought a 15 pack. In my view the game is flows smoothly and combines the best of two elements of management games as well as turn based RPG games.
From what I’ve read there’s a part two, but not in the US. By all means if RideonJapan was to release the sequel I would definitely buy it with no hesitation. One other bonus to point out is that if you still have an iPod 4 this game plays perfectly on there without any issues which is a good thing with most apps not working with the most recent iOS 8 update.
Highly recommend at the asking price.
Great JRPG, One of my All Time Favorites
Please bring the Adventure Bar Story 2 to the US as well!!
While the title may be a bit odd, with the price and the game fully playable without in-app purchases, you can't go wrong with this game for a classic JRPG.
-Entire game is playable with in-app purchases only giving a few powered up weapons that aren't necessary at all.
-A full length story; probably 20-30 hours.
-A great and fun cast of characters, including great enemies and bosses.
-Great level-up, skill, and battle systems.
-Many, many recipes to find and unlock.
-Several hidden secrets.
-Good world and dungeon music.
-Plot starts off simple but grows more complex as time goes on.
-Many post game dungeons and content to find.
-Translation is ok but has many odd lines and punctuation errors. However, it's fully understandable and doesn't detract much from the story.
-Several gameplay aspects could be explained much better.
-Battle music gets repetitive.
-Cooking simulation is too simple design wise, lacking in levels, animations, or diverse icons.
-After you beat the game, there are several post-game dungeons and areas. But in one area (named ????), I beat the first boss and walked up to the rune, and simply got told that I am not ready yet. It doesn't explain if I need another item, to level up more, or have all the recipes unlocked, or anything.
One of the best games I've ever played on a mobile device
Unique blend between strategic business and RPG style fighting. Never understood why this game was never able to gain publicity because it deserves to be listed in the top games apps. I would easily say this is in my Top 5 of best games I've played on the App Store.
Also very impressed by the response time of the developers, they broke the game with an update and then fixed it in 2 weeks. Considering that Apple's review process of updates often takes that long, this was a fantastic job by the developers.
