Papa's Freezeria is the latest installment of FlipLineStudio's time management series which started with Papa's Pizza Mia. I last reviewed his last recent time management flash game, Papa's Taco Mia.
As you can guess Papa's Freezeria is going to follow the same format. You take orders, make their food, put toppings on it, serve it. You then earn tip money and can buy decorations and upgrades to help you. Fairly simple formula that hasn't really changed all that much since the start of their series. With Papa's Freezeria, Papa takes a break from cooking a meal and goes the dessert route with sundaes! The way the game plays out is a customer comes in, orders his sundae, then you have to pick a cup size, fruit and flavoring to mix in, then have to blend it, and last put toppings on it which include whipped cream, various cookies and fruit as well as syrups.
This, again, doesn't really differ from the rest of the Papa's series but I do think they toned down the difficulty and made it more manageable from his last game, Papa's Taco Mia which if you read my review on it I criticized for being too hard. Papa's Freezeria was brought down in the difficulty which really improved the score. Not only is the blending part the easiest but with the presence of more upgrades and more decorations to increase score and waiting times, Freezeria goes from a laborious time management game to a rather enjoyable one a la Diner Dash.
Papa's Freezeria brings a few new features to the Papa's series which is good to see some evolution taking place in this flash game series. The main one I noticed was a wage system in which every week you get paid a certain amount based on your rank. Also a greater variety of customers is in Freezeria which some change their orders up every time which is a totally new concept in the Papa's series.
Overall, I feel Papa's Freezeria is another great time management flash game in the great Papa series which has toned down the difficulty which makes it more enjoyable and not feeling like a job, as well as adds some nice new features to the overall polish of the series.
