A Deliciously VR Cooking Game, ‘Clash Of Chefs VR’
by ZhinanZhang on Sep 17, 2021
Kitchen life isn’t easy! Chefs need to bring their A-game every single night if they hope to survive. Often times it’s a sink or swim environment! Flat Hill Games’ kitchen-based VR experience Clash of Chefs VR has you playing the role of a seasoned cook during a busy shift and whipping up delicious meals for the world’s pickiest eaters.
You’ll need to get orders out in a timely manner as you chop veggies, flip burgers, and make drinks throughout a chaotic kitchen environment filled with various ingredients and tools there to assist you on your culinary adventure. Just make sure not to burn or mess up an order, otherwise, you could be dealing with an unsatisfied hangry customer.
You choose from four different restaurants to work in, each specializing in their own unique cuisine, including American, Italian, Japanese, and Mexican. Of course, each cuisine style presents its own preparation challenges. But don’t worry, like any type of kitchen work, there is a little bit of training involved.
The in-game tutorial guides you through the ins and outs of rolling sushi, operating the deep fryer, and making pizzas. Just make sure you take the time to familiarize yourself with your surroundings; each kitchen features a unique setup to master, offering tons of replay value.
The game starts you off at a slow but steady pace of orders. As the game progresses and tables start to fill up, however, the number and complexity of the orders will increase steadily, offering an increasingly difficult challenge, regardless of which restaurant you’re working in.
Before you know it, you’ll be faced with multiple orders at once and scrambling around every part of the kitchen in search of the necessary ingredients. Timing is everything! Be sure items are cooked properly before plating and double-check the right items are on the right plate!
Each kitchen offers 20 tasty levels to complete. The question is: are you mentally prepared for the ensuing chaos?
Like any restaurant, your server (which you can customize) is there to expedite each dish to your hungry customers. Sometimes they get a little busy taking orders and chit-chatting with tables, so you’ll have to ring the bell to let them know you have plates ready to go. And although we don’t condone throwing food at your server, tossing a hamburger bun or burnt pizza might help get their attention.
To turn up the heat in the kitchen, Clash of Chefs VR features a global leader board showcasing the best scores from chefs all around the world. You can even go head-to-head against other chefs via PVP multiplayer. In this situation, throwing food at the opposing chef is absolutely encouraged! Just be ready, because only the best and fastest chef will walk away the winner.
Here’s the thing, Clash of Chefs is still cooking! Flat Hill Games has several cool updates planned to help spice up the experience, including live voice chat so you can trash talk your opponent, support for the new Oculus avatars, additional achievements, and other menu changes.
