Playable on both Android and iOS, Cooking Quest is an idle-like 2D food truck sim where you’ll get to discover and craft a variety of food, recruit and send heroes to various locations to hunt for ingredients, expand your shop by hiring more chefs, and develop the nearby village just so you can get more customers!
Once upon a time, the Devil King invaded the world but humanity put up a solid resistance and thus, foiling his plans. He quickly realized that the humans’ strength comes from good food and hence, he completely eradicated the concept of cooking from the world.
As expected, the humans eventually lost the war and the world as they knew it came to an end. The Devil King now ruled supreme and whatever survivors that were left are flung far and wide.
However, one day, you smelled something amazing while journeying through the forest, and by following the smell, you stumble upon a curious yet adorable species of creatures who may have limited but sufficient communication skills, but they are superb cooks! The Devil King may have destroyed the notion of cooking among humans, but the art is still alive and well with other species!
Ultimately though, you’re a business-minded person and you’ve struck an agreement with these creatures – they will cook for you as long as you provide them with the ingredients, and you’ll help them sell the dishes they prepared at your Food Wagon.
Being an idle-like RPG/sim, Cooking Quest is an easy game to get into. Basically, with the help of your chefs, you’ll prepare a variety of dishes at your food wagon for passing villagers to buy. You’ll start off with only 1 dish but as you play, you’ll gradually increase the intimacy level between you and your respective customers. Once a milestone is reached, you’ll get to unlock new dishes.
By crafting a certain dish lots of times, you’ll slowly “level” it up. Once the maximum capacity is reached, you’ll then need to spend gems (premium currency) to upgrade the rank of that dish so that you can earn more cash per sale you make. Thankfully, gems can be obtained for free pretty easily in this game, whether it is by completing dailies, ongoing missions, achievements, or simply by collecting your free gems every 10 minutes from the in-game store. You can even watch a video ad to get free gems.
You can also unlock new dishes by unlocking a new ingredient. This usually happens by recruiting better heroes at the tavern or powering up the ones you already have so that they can reach the next ingredients threshold. This threshold isn’t very clearly shown in the game though generally, you can expect a new ingredient every 10 to 20 levels cleared.
Ingredients can be quite a pain to gather because unlike most idle games, the pace in Cooking Quest can be a tad bit slow. However, if you build a Bounty Post in your town, you can then send extra heroes you may have on adventures to collect a nice pile of ingredients. There’s a gift tied to a bunch of balloons that will appear near to your food wagon from time to time that offers to trade 1 ad video view for some ingredients as well.
Different dishes will require different ingredients and hence, will be priced differently. Their cooking duration will vary as well, but there are ways you can cut down on all those waiting times – you can either hire more chefs, which in turn, will require you to upgrade your food wagon, or you can simply upgrade the ones you have to give them a permanent productivity boost. You can also tap on the chefs as they are cooking to give them a temporary speed boost.
Besides battling creatures, gathering ingredients, and cooking delicious food, Cooking Quest has a ton of other features as well. For instance, there’s a Bulk Order feature where you can fulfill food requests to earn cash and Medals. Note that Medals are the only currency that will let you buy an Accessory Chest from the shop which contains a chef’s tool or a hero’s equipment. Either way, you’ll get an item that will help your heroes or chefs to do what they do best!
Want to spice things up a bit? Well, as you play, you’ll eventually unlock new places you can set up shops in. Different places will usually offer a different event that you can launch. These 24-hour events are usually very specific and will earn you event points which you can then spend at the travelling vendor.
There’s also a town that you can develop by constructing certain buildings. There are tons that you can build here and each building plays their unique role, whether it is to let you collect free ingredients daily, mine for free gems, or collect rent from the residents. Some buildings, like the Bounty Post, even let you complete bounties to get nice rewards.
For an idle-like game, the devs sure want you to keep the game on at all times. You won’t be able to make any sales if you close the app, which is rather odd, but at least you’ll still be earning ingredients from your teams of heroes… at least until your bags are full.
As a freemium game, Cooking Quest does have a lot of ad-driven “opportunities” that you can make use of to earn some nice rewards, whether it is extra coins, ingredients or a chance to get something rarer like a hero scroll or an accessory item. You can also purchase more various packs, such as starter pack, value pack or 5-star hero pack, using real cash.
Cooking Quest is a fully single-player experience, but if you like the game, be sure to recommend it to your friends. Sharing your experience via a review would help greatly too. The devs are also quite active on Facebook and if you stick around there, you might catch some free coupons that you can then redeem in-game for free gems and other prizes.
I absolutely adore the graphics in Cooking Quest. The creatures and characters are so cute. Even the backgrounds look fantastic here! The music in this game has a fun tune to it, but it’s not exactly something I’d like to listen to day in and out.
If you enjoy a cooking-themed idle/RPG with lots of dishes and ingredients to discover and heroes to recruit, you’ll definitely want to check out Cooking Quest. The gameplay is simple enough to get into, and addictive enough to keep you coming back for more! Cooking Quest won’t be the last of the wave of innovative and uniquely themed idle games that are going to hit the market though.
