The Papa’s series of games has just added another member to its portfolio: Papa’s Wingeria.


What is it about these games that compels me to play them?  Do I really enjoy time management games this much?!

OK, don’t answer that.

The concept is exactly the same as the previous Papa’s games (not counting the side scroller that started the franchise): You work in a food joint and have to prepare people’s food to order.  You can get quite a queue of customers lined up, so working out a system to get people served while taking orders, frying up wings, and arranging plates is a must.  As I’ve prevoiusly said about these games, there is no reason at all this should be fun, except that it is.

There are a few new features in this game, such as being able to customize your character and dress him up.  There’s also a handy “day of the week” display to let you know where you are in the week (keeps track of when payday is).  There are new mini-games between days (a feature that returns from pancakeria) and a handful of new customers.  Aside from that, there are a few UI improvements that are relatively minor to play, but do make things a bit cleaner.

If you liked the previous Papa games, give this one a shot.  It’s a solid addition to the franchise.
