DINERTOWN TYCOON is an economic simulation game that challenges players to protect the residents of DinerTown from the unhealthy influence of Grub Burger, the evil eatery that threatens to wreak havoc with its pollutants and harmful recipe ingredients. Fans and newcomers to the franchise will meet over 25 familiar DINERTOON faces including Flo as they engage in a fun and strategic battle for the commercial success of DinerTown.
"DinerTown Tycoon is Flo's first foray out of her diner and into the larger world of DinerTown," said Kenny Dinkin, creative director, PlayFirst." It's also her first dance outside the clickety world of DASH game time management play -- and what better place for her to strut her entrepreneurial stuff but in the fast-paced, people-pleasing world of restaurant management!"
The game offers a fresh new angle on DinerTown as players now see this familiar world from a broader economic perspective and work to retain its wholesome quality one neighborhood at a time from Squid Row to Champagne Falls. It also marks a notable departure for Flo as she and her DinerTown cohorts are faced with the evil executives at Grub Burger - a challenge much more ominous than ever before.
