Namco has released Burger Time Deluxe, an update of the 80s arcade game that features more than 60 levels and mini-games. Players can take on a multi-course meal in Story Mode or enjoy a small snack in Quick Mode -- both feature Chefs Peter Pepper and Sally Salt as they help their uncle stop the dastardly Vinnie Vinegar.
In each level, players scale the platforms to assemble burgers clear them off the screen, all the while avoiding not only Vinnie but his henchmen Mr. Hotdog, Mr. Egg, and others. Players can stop the bad guys with their pepper shaker and then freeze, cook, or salt them, earning extra points by squashing them with burger ingredients or pulling one out from under them.
Macgamestore.com sells Burger Time Deluxe for US$19.95, with a free demo available. The game is a Universal Binary that requires Mac OS X version 10.4 and 256MB RAM.
