Video game review: Snowy Lunch Rush

I know I stated earlier that hidden object games are my big weakness. I also have a fondness for time simulation games like Diner Dash. This time around I tried Snowy Lunch Rush. The Big Fish Games description of the game reads: "Do you have an appetite for fun? Then join Snowy the Bear as he sets out to run the best restaurant in town! Using nothing but your drive to be rich and famous, send Snowy scampering all over his shabby restaurant to seat customers, take orders, serve food, collect money and clear tables. Combos and other special feats can help you earn enough cash to keep the restaurant open, make repairs and upgrade to swankier locations."

This is such a weird game. It has all the typical Diner Dash-type pieces. Customers come into your restaurant, you seat them (preferably according to their color) then you wait on them. To try to keep it interesting, there are a few additions. Now there is a drive-through for you to keep an eye on and important people can make phone reservations for a table. However, it's rather difficult to get over the fact that it is a couple of bears running the restaurant. Snowy is a white bear that handles all of the customer interaction while Browny does the cooking. If the customers were also animals, it might not be so difficult but they are a variety of humans. Still, the game is enjoyable. I would like it better if you had some choice in the upgrades for the restaurant but it doesn't really detract from the game too much.
