Publisher makes deal with PlayFirst to bring hit casual game to PSP, DS, Game Boy Advance in 2007.
Casual games generally aren't designed with hardcore gamers in mind, but that's never stopped them from being enjoyed by dedicated joystick jockeys. When the Game Boy debuted, Tetris was its original killer app. More recently, casual classics such as Bejeweled and Zuma have found new audiences on the Xbox Live Marketplace.
Now, Eidos is bringing one of the biggest casual-game hits of recent years to the handheld platforms. The publisher today announced that it has reached an agreement with PlayFirst to port the PC game, and that PlayStation Portable, Nintendo DS, and Game Boy Advance versions of the game would be released in 2007.
In Diner Dash, players take control of Flo, a restaurant entrepreneur who must balance an array of tasks crucial to the success of her business, such as seating customers, taking orders, delivering food, and busing tables. For more on Diner Dash, check out GameSpot's review of the mobile-phone version of the game.
you can play it for free on Yahoo Games. the games okay. don't think its worth $20-30 though. maybe $5.
I have Diner Dash Deluxe for PC, great game to fool around with and very addictive after a few hours. I never knew there was a sequel for PC. Should be fun on hand helds to.
wow, i remember someone using Photoshop to make fake DS games, and this was one of them. maybe GameLab was browsing through our forums... now if only ValvE could browse through and look at the Counter Strike DS game... HINT HINT VALVE
meh...the game was a fun diversion but I could never see spending more than $9.99 on it. I see it working the best on the DS.
Well I think the analog stick on the PSP will help it.I hope it comes with the first and second one.The second has some new features that are cool.
If it worked on a Mobile phone it will work on everything else, Kingofunrealuk learn to read please!
I can see it working on DS, because it'd have similar controls to the PC version... but PSP and GBA? Hmmm...
