If you have dreams of running your very own cafe, then why not start learning the ropes on a virtual game? Well, My Cafe Katzenberger does just that: create, customize, decorate, and manage your own cafe. This restaurant simulation game lets you own and run your cafe like a pro, with some help from the gorgeous German TV personality, Daniela Katzenberger.
Like most simulation games, My Cafe Katzenberger is a complicated one. It has numerous features and gameplay elements which you may need to learn from scratch, especially if you’re new to the genre. Fortunately, the game enables you to learn all you need to during the tutorial stages: you will learn how to serve customers, create meals, and customize your entire restaurant. When you’re playing, be sure to be attentive throughout the tutorials: it will help you enjoy the game better in the long term and at the same time, understand its many intricacies.
In My Cafe Katzenberger, you will be controlling Daniela Katzenberger in a 3D environment. The control schemes are simple, thanks to it being a mobile game. Interacting with the environment involves you tapping and pointing at objects, making it a good fit for mobile platforms. This in turn makes it a game for everyone, regardless if you’re a veteran player or a total beginner.
The backbone of the game is the food preparation aspect. Unlike most restaurant games, you don’t have the ingredients yet in My Cafe Katzenberger: you still need to actually purchase them prior during active restaurant service. Though this might sound rather clunky and confusing (especially if you’re already serving numerous patrons), this adds another fantastic and most unique element into the game, giving you another thing to be fully preoccupied with.
Apart from purchasing ingredients, you can easily grow them straight from your garden. This is another unique feature into it. From there, you can then mix up ingredients to turn them into delectable recipes. Serve them to your patrons to keep their bellies full and at the same time, make them extremely happy, much like how the real Cafe Katzenberger does things.
One of its desirable gameplay features is it allows you to decorate your entire cafe. Apart from being one that resembles the real-life Cafe Katzenberger, you can incorporate your own design taste into it. Apart from new furniture and kitchen materials, you can add in various decorations such as new flooring, paintings, a jukebox, and even a bookshelf - all to cater to your need to decorate and at the same time, entertain your patrons.
The game does have its fair share of issues. At times, game is unresponsive, particularly in the tutorial stages. Furthermore, the translation seemed to be a little messed up at certain points, which is understandable, given that the game was originally German and was localized quickly.
Despite the issues, My Cafe Katzenberger is definitely a game you would want to try out. Its management aspect alone is enough to make you want to play it. Moreover, it stars a gorgeous German celebrity ready to help you out if ever you’re stuck in the game, so install and enjoy it!
