  • Valuable PAYING customers are lashing out.. change your game. Mar 27, 2019

    By ChristianAriel92
    I’ve been playing this game for years and never once spent money on it the first 2-3 years playing.. I am a skilled player and got a new phone and had to start all over and have finally realized I had to pay real money to actually beat levels. Here in the past 2-3 months (with at least 1-2 updates) this game is freezing up at the beginning of the game(ATLEAST 30 seconds.. just sitting WAITING, And not for an ad!!) I am a committed player and always go back to this game bc of the good graphics, but after reading the recent reviews (because I am always looking to see if you guys update) I see crappy reviews that have the same frustration as me. Spending MY REAL HARD EARNED MONEY on a game that strings you along.. people rarely ever order the items you need.. if they do, not enough coins to gain a star. I’ll keep playing, but I won’t spend any more real money until you guys make this game practical.. and another thing, I’ve spent “25 dollars” to skip a level by accident. Hard earned money that is taken immediately if I accidentally touch my phone in the wrong spot. Recommend asking “are you sure” for that certain purchase. I NEVER DO REVIEWS.. but this game needed my say so! Correct your problems bc I won’t be spending any more money on this “FREE” game 🙄🙄🙄

    I love everything about the game. Just pissed off how it Doesn't start n shows no internet connection, although i've got a good running wifi. Even the premium items cost a lost of gems. The 2nd grade items are pricey too. My love for the game insisted me to give 5 stars in all given aspects otherwise, as far as the gameplay n control is concerned, u ppl don't deserve the hi stars. Fix the bugs!

  • Every time I play I want to quit Nov 7, 2018

    By neeenerrrs
    I’ve played kitchen scramble for about 2 years and every time I play I find more reasons to dislike it. I’ve never played a game that is so blatantly trying to screw you up. Last night I completed some offers to get some cash to upgrade my appliances, and now that I’ve done that, the customers’ patience is way shorter and I lose them more frequently. Um, I thought premium appliances were supposed to be a good thing? Also, more often than not, if you choose to use a premium ingredient, NO ONE orders things that include the ingredient!!!! They’re supposed to help you make more money, but instead you waste your premium ingredient for nothing. Additionally I’ve noticed that if you prepare the wrong dish and keep it in the holding tray, no one will order that. However as soon as you throw it out, what’s the next order that pops up? The dang item you just threw out. Honestly I’ll probably never stop playing KS because I’m so deep in it, but this is one of the worst games I’ve ever played in terms of how it goes out of its way to screw you over

    I’ve had this game for YEARS and it’s honestly the only game I keep coming back to. Yes it’s challenging, yes there are times when you can’t make it past a certain level for days, but that’s what makes it fun! Everyone posting 1 Star ratings because they think you need “real money” to get through the game is just impatient and bad at strategy games. Like I said, I’ve had this game for years, I’m over level 1000, and I haven’t spent ONE PENNY on this game. The developers made an awesome decision by allowing us to watch videos for supplies/cash/ingredients and implementing the “quest feature” which EASILY can get you extra supplies, tokens, and level boosters. You really have to be strategic with this game which I LOVE. Every other cooking game in the App Store is like it was designed for children and they get boring super fast. I love the graphics in this game and the attention to detail the designers used, there is literally no other game out there like this. To the developers: PLEASE MAKE MORE GAMES LIKE THIS. I would love to play anything made by y’all that follow this format. And to anyone out there that likes puzzles and strategy games: I HIGHLY recommend Kitchen Scramble.

  • Great game BUT... Aug 25, 2019

    By Chynadoll53511
    I have been playing this game for years and I love it! I love the graphics and I love that I get to exercise my memory with remembering the dishes. I've never needed to spend real money on this game because this game gives plenty of opportunity to earn cash and whatever you need to get premium appliances and ingredients and you can go through the levels pretty easily. There are some challenging levels too which makes the game fun. The downside to this game is there are many glitches. I have the most updated version (it won't allow you to play without updating it). Sometimes when I'm playing a level, the app will freeze up and exit me out of the app without saving my progress and it takes the supplies and ingredients I used away. Sometimes it glitches so bad it will cause meals to burn on it's own. The ads will also cause it to glitch and exit out the app. The worse thing about it all is that I can't even link my progress to Facebook so that I can use a different device. I'm so far in this game and I would hate to have to start over like I have done once before, it was the worst! Please at least allow me a way to link my progress! Thanks!

  • Don't fall into this trap Dec 6, 2017

    By antibeauty
    This review says more about need than the game. I have been playing this for two or three years now. The game is fun but it's terrible. The supplies take too long to refresh, the game is obviously fixed on several levels et I will pay money for the ridiculously expensive cash. As FD at as the fixing, there are levels that require certain dishes to be served. Say you need to serve 4 shrimp. You play the whole level but no one will request the shrimp. So now you've wasted super expensive supplies. Also, the game requires you to make so much on each level. Yet the dish prices are fixed and you can't make that amount without buying cash to purchase select premium ingredients. Even if you do the next time you play the level. o one I'll request the dish with that ingredient. Now let's talk about crashing. The game crashes CONSTANTLY. and not just any crash. It crashes after you hit play on a level. This means you have lost supplies and any premium ingredient you paid for for that level. I've been refunded so many times it's dumb. Yet I still play. The watch and earn is a joke. There are never videos available. It works maybe once a month. Just greedy creators. I've decided. Yet I still play. Update: I finally uninstalled and found several similar games that are more stable and don't require so much cash to pass levels. Still love the game but I felt more like I was being conned than enjoying the two hours of rest I get a day.

    So many bugs. Game constantly freezes mid-round, causing me to lose grocery supplies and money because the time doesn't freeze. Appliances stopped, working characters don't move, it's terrible. Such a great game once upon a time, now so buggy that it's unbearable.

  • Disappointed by this change Feb 17, 2020

    By Cate Samosky
    I was happy to see that they lowered the amount of supplies required for levels a while back. But I’ve noticed that they got rid of the “offers” you can complete to earn in-game cash. You used to be able to go to an “earn cash” section and there was a list of offers- mostly downloading other games or joining a mailing list. I always used this to get enough cash to buy tokens for the token gate and I actually ended up discovering other fun games through this. I’m really disappointed that they got rid of this, because it’s made the game unplayable. I’ve done the math and the only way to earn enough for the token gate without spending any real life money will take you about a month. Once you get the higher up levels, it’s super hard to pass levels- let alone earn more than 1 star (equating to one token). Without fail, I’ve had about 30 tokens each time I reach the gate for the last year or so. Most token gates require 100+ tokens. The best you can do is complete quests which only get you a max of 9 tokens every couple of days and honestly, I’m just not invested enough to spend all that time. I really don’t understand why they did away with the offers. I’d assume it was making them decent ad revenue, and I can’t imagine that there are very many people who are actually spending real money in the game given how expensive it is.

  • Amazing game Apr 13, 2019

    By Organizer19
    Ignore the naysayers. You do not need to spend any money unless you are impatient. I have never spent a dime, but always have an excess of 400+ supplies. Why? Because I figured out how to play the game. This is a strategy game, and it is tough. Everyone is so used to playing easy games that they don’t know how to deal with a game that actually challenges you. Our society has become such an immediate satisfaction culture that people don’t know how to appreciate something that makes you work for that satisfaction. Doesn’t anyone remember before you could buy game enhancers that we’d spend days working on one level in a video game trying to pass it and oh the satisfaction when we finally did? A few hints: -ALWAYS play the quests. You get tons of supplies just for playing one quest level and better rewards if you complete the quest. -Watch the videos that get you free stuff. -Spend your money that you earn strategically on supplies that will increase and speed up your output OR will keep customers patient (the coffee, witches brew, etc). -Unless you are in a exit door round, serve customers with more stars first. -Practice (FOR FREE) before starting a round, so that you are a master of the recipes prior to spending your precious supplies. Complaint: I wish the game came with better instructions so I didn’t have to figure this all out on my own. I also wish we knew the price of dishes. It is hard to pay attention to the coins we get when in the midst of game play.

  • Glitches. Please fix Jun 15, 2018

    By Ilisweets
    I love love this game, but it has some flaws that I wish can be fixed by the next update. I play as soon as my supplies are full and sometimes I don't even wait. I also spend money on this game. When I enter the game, it goes dark, like frozen where u can't do anything, then it works. On my husbands account, it works immediately after its loaded. Then when I go to claim my gifts on my iPad, most of the time the game doesn't give me my supplies. On any even day, I loose about 10-15 supplies. Then when I'm in the middle of playing, it goes slow and fill of glitches. I cannot play like that. And at this moment, I'm unable to play because it ls frozen. Finally, I would also like to know why I don't see all my request like gifts on my iPad that I see on my laptop. I hope you can get back to me or fix my issues. Thank you. I'll be checking back.

  • I love this game Mar 31, 2018

    By Marjulc
    Yes it crashes, yes there are bugs but what game doesn’t have these issues? I’ve been playing for years have purchased cash and ingredients sparingly and still enjoy it immensely. The quest is a great addition to the game creates another challenge especially when you need to earn more cash or supplies. The levels are clever takes on dishes from all countries and cultures. It’s a good way to spend some time and your supplies run out so keeps your game playing time to a minimum it’s addictive and fun. I think some of these reviews are harsh. Thanks to the creators for coming up with new ways to enhance the game. I have told many people about the game and everyone loves it. Enjoy the game and stop complaining or just simply stop playing.

  • So many glitches Aug 13, 2020

    By aglaxfreak
    You’d think with how long this game has been out that these glitches on early levels would be fixed. I’ve been playing for years and there’s the exact same issues. The section goals won’t save half your progress. I was keeping track of how many customers I had. I finished a level and went back to check and it said I served 200 less customers than last time I checked. The “daily” challenges reset basically every 3 days not daily. If scrolling between locations there’s times where no matter which way you scroll you can’t see levels. It just will jump from 225 to 228. Not letting me see 6 or 7 unless I shut down the app and restart. There is a huge lag as you scroll through. Love the game (obviously why I’ve been playing for so long) but these glitches make me stop playing every couple months. There’s no reason these shouldn’t be fixed yet. I’m in the 4th town and can’t get the customer goal because it takes them away randomly

  • You’ll Love It and Still Quit Playing Jun 26, 2020

    By KimRMcClain
    Why? Because it is ridiculous to have sets of 25 levels, each level only allowing you to collect 1-3 tokens, and then require 110 tokens after each set of levels. Again, why? Because even if you get a 3-star rating on each level, which is pretty much impossible once you get in the high hundreds level, it only equals SEVENTY-FIVE tokens. And yeah, I’m aware there’s “goals” to gain anywhere from 10-25 tokens but even the ones that only give you 10 tokens for beating take FOR. EV. ER. At one “restaurant” to win 25 tokens I had to make 250 gingerbread men. The level I found where I was most likely to even make them at all (though it was still no guarantee) allowed me to make 1-5 every time I played. ONE TO FIVE AND I NEEDED 250. Add that to the fact that this game takes lives away every time you play instead of just every time you fail a level and you can understand why this is ridiculous. I love this game, but I don’t want to spend a year of my life just trying to earn tokens so that I can get to the next set of 25 levels after beating the 25 prior. It makes me hate how much I love playing it. And as many complaints as I’ve read about this you’d think the creators would’ve made it more manageable by now.

  • Trap Dec 13, 2018

    By lushyoni
    Everything people are reporting in their reviews is right on point. It’s designed to make you want to spend money on upgrades and supplies bc otherwise you’ll just be playing for s LONG time playing 5 games at a time. It’s a great game but it’s also designed to grab more of your money as In the following example: I just played the same level 5 times in a row and I keep getting to just 50 points under the amount needed to progress to the next level. What happens is that the customers’ hearts all of the sudden start to decline MUCH more rapidly than any other point in the game. Also, the app will sometimes take your money and not give you what you paid for. All in all, it’s a really fun game but the developers are sneaky and so I’m not going to hang on to it albeit playing for the better part of a year pretty consistently. I tried the developer’s other games and they are pretty crappy too. I say move along if you want to save frustration and that has nothing to do with any inability to delay gratification. The only reason there are good reviews is bc it had potential as it is a fun game. But the developers are greedy and as you. Am see from years of exactly the same review as mine: they don’t really care.
