When your game is called Diner Dash, it’s already implied that things will move at a pretty rapid clip. Flo, the famed restaurateur from PlayFirst (a TriplePoint client), did not become the star of the Dash series by resting on her laurels and letting the food get cold. So, when PlayFirst puts out a game called Diner Dash Rush, well, I guess Flo had better invest in some solid running shoes. The game was designed in an effort to “create the fastest DASH experience ever,” and it’s out now.
From the press release:
Diner Dash Rush is built from a unique blend of classic and contemporary features. At its core is the DASH gameplay fans know and love, where success relies on combining strategies like color-matching, chaining and managing customer archetypes to create order out of chaos. Furthermore, Diner Dash Rush introduces brand new features to DASH that are sure to add an extra rush of excitement: timed rounds, weekly leaderboard tournaments and the all-new “Happy Hour” bonus round. By pleasing enough VIP customers to earn the right “Flair” during regular gameplay, players will advance to Happy Hour where the disco lights drop, the diner rocks out and players are granted extra time to rack up bonus points serving always-happy customers. These additional layers of speed, strategic depth and social competition have been folded into familiar DASH gameplay to make Diner Dash Rush lightning fast, furiously fun and a tremendous step forward for time management games.
It’s on the App Store now, but, you know — no hurry.
