I spent my teenage years working in several different restaurant’s. I was a dishwasher, busboy, host, and waiter. However, I never cooked any of the food. So, Blinded Chef caught my proverbial eye. In addition, I often look to review games that have the word “Blind” in the title, because I think the blind and V.I. community may gravitate toward those games. However, the game isn’t about being a Blind Chef. It is about being an incompetent Waiter. The game starts with the player at a Hot Dog restaurant. Customers place orders, while you attempt to record the order accurately.
For example, a customer will state “I would like a beef hot dog with cheese and chili.” The player must swipe left, right or down to find the correct meat. When they find beef, they swipe up to select it. After the meat is selected, you swipe right to make the next available topping selection. The swiping is repeated for the selection of the next two toppings. If you get it correct, the customer says “Nice!” If the order is wrong, they say “It is sad!”
Once you get enough orders correct, you graduate to the Burger stand, then the Salad Bar, and so forth.
Each new restaurant provides more complexity to the order for the player to record.
The quirky thing about this game is that you do not need to get an order completely correct. If a customer orders a Chicken Burger with lettuce, the player will get credit if they record Chicken Burger with onion, tomato and lettuce. I don’t know about you, but my tip would be low and my return unlikely if my order was completed in such a manner.
Blinded Chef is a flawed and faulty memory game. Not only is the title misleading, the execution of the actual memory game mechanic is deficient.
NOTE: Once you open this game, you need to turn off the iPhone Voiceover feature. Triple press the button on the right side of the phone to toggle voiceover off and on.
Once Voiceover is turned off, the game follows the typical swipes, taps, and double taps to navigate the game.
