Playing this directly after “Katy & Bob: cake cafe” was kinda a mistake… I really like this type of time-management in which you have to complete orders, but the Katy & bob series feels a bit more polished, which is a bit weird since this is the newer game. In-game this has the same achievements as the later 2 Katy & bob games, but only a few achievements are linked through steam. This results in that you only have to do the goals and reach the expert score on the first 20 levels for 100% completion. The expert goals in this one feel easier than in the Katy & Bob series, which makes it easier to complete this game.
Another thing that wasn’t as polished as I wish it was it that the most right drink in the game has a small hitbox, if you click at the top of those you’ll go to the counter of the special dishes instead of picking up a drink. I didn’t notice this in the first world, but in the later 2, I noticed it a lot and had to click very low on the rightmost drink to be able to pick it up.
This all may sound very negative but isn’t meant that way, but there is room for improvement in future titles. I still enjoyed the game a lot and it is easy to complete this game.
