Originally a mobile game, Stand O’Food has been ported to several platforms now, including where I first played it on the PS3’s PlayStation Mini’s series if anyone remembers those. You can now download it from the Windows App store for free, or still on mobile phones and probably a million other places too. They’re actually up to Stand O’ Food 3 by now as well, but the basics are still the same.

Standing for Food

Stand O’ Food is a puzzle game with somewhat unique gameplay. You play the owner and sole employee of a fast food restaurant, and you have to put together food orders (pretty much just burgers) as quickly as you can for your customers. Thing is though, your little dude has created a bizarre and broken system of conveyor belts to “help” him create burgers. The belts will send him the ingredients he needs – buns, chicken, beef, fish patties, whatever – one at a time, and it’s up to you to click on the individual ingredients one at a time to put together the meal correctly.

It starts out simply enough at first. Simply click on the bottom bun, then whatever topping, and you’re done. For some reason the people in the first level or two only want weird things like a slice of cheese on a single bun. But as the game progresses, the difficulty slowly rises, and more gameplay elements are introduced. Obviously the ingredients will be spat out in different orders, so you’ll have to serve people further back in line rather than the people at the front, or use a side plate to get an ingredient out of the way.
