BurgerTime Party! Is the latest entry in this long running series about creating burgers. It’s back with a bit more attitude, and a slightly more intense setup. This is now focused on being a party game for the Nintendo Switch, originally releasing in Japan and then heading to the west as well at a later point.

It follows Peter Pepper that now looks a bit more aggressive in his design. You’ll be once again battling against iconic food items, across a large selection of levels. With this being a party game up to four players can experience this intense action at once.

I was able to check this game out while at E3 2019, it was a sort of spur of the moment play. I had finished my bookings early and was on the way out to hand out awards, but noticed the station was empty. I knew the pr folks that were covering it and said hello prior to jumping in. My mother is a huge fan of the BurgerTime series and that’s sort of where I get my knowledge of this game from.

The new version is definitely fancier in design, but retains the same core concept. You’re moving along multiple levels that feature ladders or platforms and then running over food. Once the food is stepped on, it’ll fall down. You’ll want to head to the top of the area as you can send the various burger components hurling down faster that way. While doing so the foods will be racing around trying to get you, you can sort of zap them too if needed.

The demo was cooperative, but I ended up playing by myself. A bit sad I suppose. That aside, they have neat new twists. There were slippery floors, floor of fire and some other little surprises. It seems to have a lot of content and I look forward to the full release of this one. The concept is still solid and I’m surprised we haven’t seen more releases based on this game. That’s all for BurgerTime Party!, at least for now. Check out our E3 2019 hub for additional coverage from the event.
