Diner Dash PreviewWritten By: Ryan Olsen Causal games are all the rage this generation. Gaming companies want to see how many non-gamers they can find and get them compelled to play games that are â€œn00b friendly.â€ Nintendo paved the way for this style of game with the mega-popular Nintendogs and Brain Age. Eidos is trying to pick up where Nintendo left off by offering a widely popular internet flash game on the DS and PSP. Diner Dash puts you in the role of Flo, a gal that is stuck in corporate America and hates every second of it. One day you decide to leave the drudgery behind as you find a building for sale that would fit your dreams of becoming an owner of a five star restaurant. Once you open your shop, you then need to serve the customers that come in and make sure they are happy. In the flash based game, you control Flo around with lots of clicking of the mouse buttons. The DS game will be similar to that with the touch controls. The PSP version might not fair as well do to the standard control scheme that all games must adhere to. Simplicity is key but donâ€™t mistake that for slow and boring gameplay. The game moves at a fast pace as you try and juggle orders, serving food, and cleaning tables at the same time. The handheld versions of Diner Dash will see a few features that will add some replay to the flash based game in the way of unlockables. You will be able to unlock new outfits, characters (only for cosmetic changes) and more levels to play through. On top of that, for the first time, you will be able to play multiplayer games with you and a friend. Diner Dash keeps the causal game trend going strong with the backbone being a flash-based game many people have played for a few minutes between meetings.
