Chef’s Last Stand

STORYLINE

The food at the restaurant is so good that no matter what the chefs do, the mice keep on sneaking into the kitchen and stealing their food! The chefs are at their wit’s end and have decided to take matters into their own hands. The chefs have picked up their cooking utensils and are now waiting for the mice to attack, to finish them off once and for all.

HOW THE GAME IS PLAYED

The restaurant is overrun with rats and as the manager it is your duty to maintain culinary excellence. This tower-defense game is level-based, where players place chefs of different strengths strategically to fend off waves of mice. Starting with a set amount of currency, players hire chefs and earn money for each mouse defeated, allowing them to hire more chefs. The game is lost if mice reach the end of the path too many times, depleting the player’s health bar. Success is achieved by defeating all waves without losing all health.

OBSTACLES

Stay vigilant! Mice of different strengths and abilities multiply after each passing wave. It is up to you to tactfully upgrade existing chefs or hire more chefs in the kitchen with the credits you collect. The game’s difficulty increases with the introduction of new mouse types and environmental challenges like limited chef placement areas and complex paths.
