Cooking Craze is an amazing time management game created by Big Fish Games in which you race against the clock to satisfy the culinary needs of your clients. Things get more and more complicated as you progress through the levels, so a bunch of Cooking Craze cheats and tips will surely help you get the three stars in all areas and get the most out of the game.
And that’s exactly what we plan to share with you today: some Cooking Craze tips and tricks to improve your gameplay and help you beat all stages without a problem. So let’s not waste a single second and let’s check them all out below!
1. Get cooking in advance
One of the most important things you can do is to start cooking in advance. In other words, always try to have everything ready for any type of order in as few taps as possible.
There’s no need to wait for a customer to come and place the order and then start cooking. Have everything ready and just tap the ingredients in the correct order. Don’t forget to refill and replace the used stuff and never let your food burn – your achievements will love you for that!
Pro tip: In easy levels or when you don’t have extremely varied cooking options, you can prepare some of the basic ingredients before in order to simplify everything even more. For example in the donuts levels, you can always have two donuts ready: one with chocolate glazing and one with the strawberries.
This becomes even more useful in the later levels when you have to work with multiple ingredients.
2. Master previous levels before new restaurant
Every now and then you will unlock a new restaurant. Although it’s basically the same thing in terms of gameplay, you will get new ingredients and new items to prepare for your customers.
My recommendation is to make sure that you master all the previous levels before starting work on the new restaurant, because otherwise it will be more and more difficult for you to come back and master the previous levels.
The thing is that you get used with how things work in a restaurant and therefore it’s easier for you to complete the more difficult challenges that come from the later missions.
If you move to the new one and come back, the placement of the ingredients and the way things work won’t be as familiar as they were and you might struggle to complete the difficult levels. So complete everything before moving on!
3. Be strategic when upgrading foods
As you progress through the game you have more and more options available when it comes to upgrading the different ingredients. The game does a pretty good job at recommending what to upgrade next, so you can follow those recommendations.
If you want to do it yourself, always upgrade the ingredients that are asked for the most and always upgrade the cheapest available ones first. The point is to increase the revenue per ingredient as much as possible in order to maximize profits and increase your chances of winning levels.
4. Serve clients one at a time
Things will start getting pretty hectic eventually, but you shouldn’t panic. Serve your clients one at a time, focusing on one order at a time. If you’re trying to randomly fill orders, you will most likely fail. So take a deep breath and do it methodically.
It is possible, on some occasions, that the game will automatically serve the food you make to a different client than what you’re planning to, if there are two clients asking for the same thing.
This can be the biggest challenge in levels because it can confuse you a bit, but with some practice and steel nerves, you’ll be able to get past this obstacle as well.
5. Add friends for more lives
If you’re starting to fail levels constantly, connect the game to your Facebook account and add some friends. They can send you lives – and you can do the same for them. Take advantage of this to keep playing!
6. Look for levels you can replay
Every day, there will be a previous level you have already completed available for a replay. It will be marked with a yellow star and you should always take advantage and complete these previous levels first because they will help you make more coins for buying valuable upgrades in the game.
This is extremely useful if you didn’t get the most out of previous levels and you’re stuck with no coins to upgrade and no levels to complete. This is a very unlikely event to happen, but if it does, completing previous levels and making maximum amounts of coins from them is the only way to keep moving forward.
But, of course, it’s better to try and get the most out of the levels as you play them and also go for perfect runs in order to maximize the profits.
Another good thing you can do in order to get more coins – and you should also take advantage of this as often as possible, especially when or if things are starting to seem way too difficult – is to watch ads to double your income. This is vital to help you move forward and buy those upgrades for the restaurants you own.
