Brunch Club Review

Brunch is a combination of breakfast and lunch that a lot of people have these days because of their busy schedules. I personally like to put some leftovers of yesterday’s taco meat on my sandwich and top it off with cheese and hot sauce! But when I cook, things aren’t as hectic as they are in Brunch Club. Freshly developed by Foggy Box Games and published by The Yogscast.

Brunch Club doesn’t really have a campaign but it does have multiple game modes! In Brunch Club you control a highlighted cursor which is your tool when you navigate around the different stages in Brunch Club. The stages are unique and really makes the game feel less repetitive. You can do anything from frying eggs to applying cottage cheese and jam to an unlimited amount of scones. How about toasting bread and applying better to it as the time is getting altered? Or why not experience the pressure of taking sushi orders? All of this and more can be experienced in Brunch Club!

Brunch Club offers different game modes and there is something for everyone! Practice Mode is the newbie-friendly mode that will teach you the basics of the selected stage. By basics, I mean the main things to focus on in that particular stage without being interrupted by the thing that makes Brunch Club hectic. In the Standard Mode you will be playing for real, which means that the game won’t be as forgiving as it was in the Practice Mode. Worst case scenario being that you might have to restart the entire stage if you mess anything up. Since the game also supports multiplayer, there are more modes that encourage players to compete against one another! Compete in Rice Ball Rumble, a mode similar to sumo but instead you control a rice ball against your friends. You can also work together 5 Second Rule in which you are supposed to get the food through checkpoints without making it touch the surfaces for more than 5 seconds. 

The graphics of Brunch Club is simple and pleasant to look at as it suits the style of the game perfectly! It is simplistic and it doesn’t have to be anything more than that! You will be focused on your task and won’t even pay that much attention to the graphics of Brunch Club. The graphics can be comparable to other indie games today and taking that into consideration, the graphics of Brunch Club is more than above average! The soundtrack of the game is good in the sense that it really keeps you going! It’s cheerful and brings a smile to your face no matter how hectic it can be!

 The controls for Brunch Club are meant to be hard to manage and it makes the game more fun! Each stage in Brunch Club is hard in it’s own way! But it is designed so that you can play the stage again once you’ve gotten the hang of it! I wouldn’t recommend playing Brunch Club with mouse and keyboard due to it being almost impossible to navigate in-game or in the main menu. Brunch Club is the most fun when you’re new to the game and have no idea what you are doing! That being said, I think Brunch Club is a game for everyone! Other than that, I can see people playing through the stages all over again due to them being addictive. 

At the end of the day, Brunch Club is a nice change of approach when it comes to indie games. Brunch Club is fun, interesting and fresh! And I highly recommend playing it with some friends!
