Good game! Have some tips...


I NEVER write reviews for games, but I felt the need to say this. This game is obviously well thought out and has a lot of work put into it. You are playing but your also learning. I love it! But there are somethings that bother me as I play and I wish to point them out. There should be a way to "flag" towns and cities you want to visit later, and then they would show up on the fast travel tag. This would help a lot because I find myself getting lost and wanting to get back to a certain town, but with a loss of how to. Also maybe a better mini map? If you do the first thing I suggest I won't have such a need for it but maybe something you want to do. Also this is probably my biggest complaint, tapping at the market over and over to get something you want is so ANNOYING. So instead there should be a button that you pay for and it automatically does 10 pulls from the market, and you open everything at once. I really hope you read this because it's a good game I want to keep playing it's just these certain things really get at me and make it difficult to play.

Thank you so much for writing Banpurple! We really appreciate it, and we always love to hear from the players! We hear you on the "flagging" - given the huge open world, there's definitely a lot more we can do to improve the exploration component. Have you also tried accessing the Quest Log? Perhaps in some cases it may help you as it shows all the open objectives (Boss Fights, Chef Missions, Open Recruitment fights), and you can fast travel to those locations for free. But we do understand there could be more reasons to want to go to a specific town, like it may be where you last saw a certain ingredient you need. Also, the market tapping has been suggested to us at the community too! We're thinking of doing a x5 or x10 pulls from the market, but it might just take a bit more time for us to go through. We're working through a list of features suggested by the community ( - besides improving on the performance and stability (crashes) first, we're also next building PVP and Cloud Save. But this x5/x10 suggestion is definitely on the list for a future update! Thanks thanks thanks again!

For the inner foodie in you...


Are you looking for a casual game that requires no thinking and just blind tapping? Are you looking for a game that teaches you nothing at all? Are you into those games that makes you invite your friends so you can get to the next level? Well, if you answers yes to any of these questions above, then you can stop and go download something else... This is a game that will consume your mind and teach you a thing or two (or 900) about food. Not only will you see some familiar dishes and ingredients, but you will also learn so much more about food that you don’t already know - origins, genres, and geographies... yes.. knowing where cities are (think global) will actually help you navigate the game... now you must be regretting not paying attention in your 9th grade social studies class... anyways, stop wasting time reading meaningless reviews here, and just go download this game... try it once, you will like it, if you don’t, try it twice... give it some time and you will be hooked in no time!

Awwww! Thanks so much! We put a lot of passion and effort in researching the dishes, cities and cuisines (around 3 years of research!) so we really feel grateful when players appreciate it and get to learn/explore new things!

This game is PERFECT


I’m an avid gamer and have recently been addicted to mobile gaming but I can not stand the “pay-to-win” or “wait-for-energy” types that ultimately force you to watch ads just to get into the real game content. Trust me, I’ve gone through possibly 100+ games since the iPhone came out and Chef Wars has been my absolute favorite. I literally haven’t stopped playing since I downloaded it weeks ago. Honestly, even though the game is free, I would have gladly paid for it.

Overall, the game mechanics are simple and easy to approach but the battles are a challenge to master. Hundreds of recipes and ingredients to collect gives you plenty to do even after you complete the main storyline. Not to mention the additional characters that you meet along the way which have their own adventures. Dear GOD the Art is painfully cute and with well executed animations (who knew you could do so much with 2D!?) Trophies to win and a social leaderboard satisfies my competitive nature. And as someone who used to develop games, I greatly appreciate how little the lag time is when switching between apps or how I can ALWAYS resume where I left off no matter how long my phone has been idle or what interrupted it.

Gold stars all day! Bravo. Thank you Mind Cake Games for restoring my faith in mobile gaming.
