Description: This game gives you the same experience as making donuts in real life. Put donut dough in a fryer, cook it properly, and make delicious donuts with glaze and topping. If you have coffee orders, don’t forget to give them coffee, too! Shall we cook so that animals can eat donuts within the time limit?

Review: ‘Hungry Animals’ is a virtual job style game that sees you making dounts and pouring coffee for all the hungry animals that come into your shop. For some reason, you only serve animals, not the human people who are sitting in the background of the shop seeming unfazed by all the walking animals. Continuity error aside there really isn’t a lot to this game at all. You get two donut shapes, 3 ice toppings and 3 sprinkle toppings and the coffee machine. Yes, that is all you get for your money. No levels, no challenge, no unlockable equipment or recipes, just a score challenge that consists of the number of people you have served (not even how fast you served them!)

If this game was free (or as good as) I would have given it the thumbs up because it does at least work without error most of the time (but at the end of each level all you can do is exit the whole game, not to back to the menu for some reason). It’s easy to play and I am sure the little ones will love playing it, but there is nothing here to challenge us adults and certainly nothing here to justify the £6.19 price tag.
