Gordon Ramsey DASH Gameplay

IMG_1436

With Gordon somewhat uncharacteristically gently providing hints and tips on how to improve the menu, cooking techniques and all-round dining experience of customers. Starting out flipping burgers in a San Francisco café players will need to upgrade their kitchen, train staff and oversee ingredients and production etc. in order to build their restaurant empire!

With the real life Gordon Ramsay working very closely with the game developers, all of the tension and excitement of a real kitchen can be felt in Gordon Ramsay DASH! Furthermore, players can customize their avatars and strive to earn the much sought after “Wishelin” stars from the ever scrutinizing inspectors!

Tips and Tricks for Gordon Ramsay DASH

Juggling trays, filling orders, receiving money, predicting future orders, it’s a tough and stressful life in the kitchen! So if wanting to make yours a world class phenomenon, then read on for some ideas on how to get the most out of every stage and win those Wishelin stars faster!

Two Trays!

As obvious as it is, by holding and delivering two trays at a time lets players focus more on multiple orders, combos and higher payments! Also think of the order of picking up items to deliver.  It can be quicker at times to let something sit for a second if you can then do a one motion pick of all items without having to double back and forth to collect items from opposite sides of the kitchen.

Don’t Collect the Coins!

Obviously in order to complete missions and progress throughout the game, players need to collect the coins for services rendered, but by leaving the coins on the table players can focus on preparing and delivering other orders in haste and not have other customers enter and then wait in discomfort. More importantly however, is that by leaving the coins on the counter, players can then then swipe two or three collections at once which adds frenzy points which when the gauge is filled unleashes Super Gordon!

Que the Action Queue!

Once completing Season 1 Episode 7 players learn the Action Queue technique, where by multiply tapping ingredients in the right order, players can prepare and deliver two exact orders at once! This also further fills the frenzy gauge which can call Super Gordon to action who fulfills all orders in a blink of an eye!

Prepare the Patty!

Regardless of what orders come and go, always having at least one meat patty prepared and on the go, will aid in a quick delivery of that eventual burger order! The same can be done with condiments if timed rightly!

This also carries over to other restaurants as well! Essentially the first dish that you prepare in episode 1 is the core item, e.g. pepperoni pizza etc. so by always having the core dish prepared and being able to cook quickly, a fast turnaround of customers and coins will ensue!

Use the Recipe Book!

If in the heat of the moment in the hectic kitchen, you forget the ingredients of what makes what, then players can tap and hold the order bubble above customer’s heads, which not only shows what is needed but also pauses the clock and allows for a brief recess.

Take Advantage of the Mystery Box!

IMG_1439

It does seem costly at first, and it is of course a mystery prize with a high hit and miss ratio, yet on the off chance that you win, you can win big! If you don’t have enough gold to be able to open a Mystery Box, then you should watch some advertisement trailers to earn free coins or gold.  Otherwise, replaying easier missions players can grind out a bit more currency as well.  Other benefits and rewards can also be earnt by connecting through Facebook etc. which can then be spent on the Mystery Box to potentially win big prizes!

Upgrade with Purpose!

IMG_1445

By noticing where orders tend to bottleneck and where most time is wasted, players should then focus on such areas of upgrade first. Food / ingredients upgrades may not seem all that important yet by doing so will earn more coins with each order and reach goals quicker and easier!

Personal Impressions of Gordon Ramsay DASH

IMG_1411

With a fun take on a tried and true “DASH” platform, GLU adds a great new game to an already impressive list. The ease and speed in which players effortlessly slide into the game make it hard to put down upon picking up!

With actual authentic voice work, and fun cartoon visuals, I found myself wanting to keep on going until I (masochistically) heard the iconic Ramsay rant berating and belittling me for not having the kitchen and service up to his standards.

The Shopping bag energy bar system works as most other freemium games do, as does the in app purchases, yet neither appear to decline from the overall experience or hinder gameplay in any significant way.

Upon completing the lower levels, the game, the kitchen and the tension really starts to heat up! The speed of increments and rise in difficulty makes for a great game to get hooked on and to keep coming back to!

Another great element is the social aspect of the game where players can challenge friends online in TV style cook-offs to rise to fame on the leaderboard! All in all, for an essentially simple game, there is a lot to enjoy!  Four out of five stars!
