Glu Mobile launched Gordon Ramsay Dash, its latest celebrity-themed mobile game. The time-management cooking game offers gameplay similar to that of Glu’s Cooking Dash 2016, as players will prepare and serve dishes to guests in each level.
In Gordon Ramsay Dash, players will progress through multiple seasons of a reality cooking show while being mentored by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay. The game includes multiple themed restaurants, such as a burger joint and a pizza parlor. Each restaurant includes different recipes to create, with the levels in each restaurant becoming more complicated over time thanks to the addition of new recipes.
For instance, players will begin by serving things like basic burgers and turkey sandwiches in the burger joint, but this selection will expand over time to include dishes such as french fries, chili, blooming onions and more.
Each level is timed, and players will earn money as they serve guests. Users must collect the required amount of money in each stage before time runs out in order to move on to the next level. If users need help completing stages, they can craft special recipes in between levels, which each come with an associated power-up. For instance, one power may allow players to walk around restaurants faster. Each power-up lasts for a single level after they’re activated.
In addition, as players complete actions during each level, they’ll charge Gordon Ramsay’s special power bar at the bottom of the screen. When this bar is full, users can tap on Ramsay to instantly serve every guest currently waiting for a meal.
As users complete stages and earn money, they can spend this money on upgrades for their restaurants and ingredients. Restaurant upgrades may decrease prep or cooking timers, or may increase each customer’s patience so they’ll wait longer for food before they become angry and leave. Meanwhile, ingredient upgrades will make dishes worth more money when they’re served.
Some upgrades may require premium currency to purchase. Users can earn free premium currency by completing in-game achievements or by completing some stages with the maximum number of stars (the number of stars players earn on each stage is determined by the amount of money they’ve collected). Users may also be able to earn free premium currency by watching video ads.
Finally, players can compete against other users in Chef Duels to win prizes.
Niccolo de Masi, chairman and CEO of Glu Mobile, told SocialTimes:
Gordon Ramsay is a remarkably accomplished figure in both the culinary world and the entertainment industry. Having opened critically acclaimed restaurants worldwide while starring in several highly rated TV programs, we couldn’t be more excited that our partnership adds mobile gaming to his impressive business portfolio.
Gordon Ramsay Dash offers players the unique, high-stakes experience of building a restaurant empire while being mentored by chef Gordon Ramsay. I am confident that Gordon’s global and highly engaged fan base, coupled with Glu’s leadership in the time-management genre, is a recipe for success!
