Make and serve ice cream in an ice cream shop
- Use gestures to create food
- Customize your shop and your workers
- Unlocking all 120 ingredients takes weeks
- The sticker system seems superfluous
Making treats manually with swipes and gestures
Papa's Scooperia To Go! is a simple game where you serve different ice creams and different cookies. It is simple, but it has been dressed up in a rounded-and-well-developed way, which actually gives the game more depth than it deserves. Customers’ orders and their tastes evolve as they come and go, you get to serve special recipes, and you may customize your workers. Different characters enter the store and each have their own desires and nuances. There are 116 different types of customer, which makes the game a little bit like Paper’s Please except that this has far better graphics.
A carbon clone with an odd amount of depth
Papa's Scooperia To Go! is one in a very long line of games where the player has to serve something to customers by manually making the food, but Papa's Scooperia To Go! has many features, and it has a form of progression that isn't simply creating food faster or more demanding customers. Different customers change their behaviour depending upon how well you serve them, which means you can discriminate against some customers so that they give you easier orders in the future. It is far smarter than your average serve-em-up game. There is more to this game than repetitive food making.
