When Diner Dash first released in 2004, it not only became a casual classic but almost single handedly created the time management game sub-genre. Among the copycats that have since began to pop up in endless droves is Dead Hungry Diner, which takes the idea of Diner Dash and seeks to give it a Halloween themed twisted, replacing the customers with hungry monsters and the plates of spaghetti and burgers with brains (well, fruits that looks a good deal like them). This all sounds well in line with a typical DD knock-off, able to entertain even while being fairly derivative in its niche of the casual game market, but Black Market Games wanted to go one further and throw in their own unique mechanics into the mix. Essentially, it wasn't broke, and they tried to fix it.

DHD shares a lot in common with its Playfirst cousin. Customers/monsters line up hungry for a meal, and you must manage them in a timely fashion, seating, feeding, and collecting the checks while racking up combos and frequent seating bonuses before the day ends. This is all fine, if done to death by a million other games already. Ironically, it's when DHD tries to differentiate itself from the pack that all its problems arise.

First, it cripples your ability to quickly seat customers by requiring you to first move them up to the front of the line. It's only one extra step, but quickly becomes hugely frustrating as more and more line up and you have to shift through them to get to who you want to seat. Second, it segregates different customers by the type of monster they are, forcing you to reorganize your seating arrangement so opposing monsters won't fight with each other and have to be thrown out. Interesting on paper? Yes, but in practice it turns what should be a light diversion into a stressful experience, requiring far too much advance planning and trial and error to succeed.

I like what Black Market Games was going for, and applaud them for attempting to innovate in a genre that desperately needs it, but they went about it in a way that makes Dead Hungry Diner more of a chore to play than anything else. I'm rather confused as to why they chose to alter the parts of a tried and true formula that they did, as the changes seem to have little logic behind them or practical purpose for existing. It's a shame, but one can hope they get it right the next time (because casual games never die, they just redo themselves). I honestly didn't think it was possible to screw up Diner Dash, but I guess there's a first for everything.

Got this game as part of a bundle, and it reminded me of the casual gameplay and gamestyle I've enjoyed on gaming websites like Kongregate and Newgrounds.

If you enjoy restaurant (diner) management games and casual playstyle, you will like this game.

The aesthetics are very nice and cute in this game, with art that reminded me a lot of Bardbarian. The music is fitting with the theme. The feedback is very good, and you can easily see where everything is.

The controls are very simple - you just use your mouse. The learning curve is minimal, however, the game does a good job of getting progressively more and more difficult, adding new layers of mechanics to deal with. The first few levels do a great job of preparing you for the rest of the game. Whenever new mechanics are introduced, you are given a short briefing on how to incorporate these into your gameplay.

I haven't paid much attention to the story, but it seems to be pretty decent (your two main characters attempt to feed supernatural entities so they don't have to prey on humans).

As for gameplay, it is fairly easy if you are familiar with restaurant management games. You don't have to cook or prepare anything here, you just have to seat different clients and get food to their tables before the happiness gauge falls to 0, causing them to leave.

You slowly unlock new game mechanics as you progress through the game. A few levels in, you will unlock a store where you can buy upgrades for your skills pre-game. Skills include: a speed buff (extremely useful), a happiness buff (you can apply it to a single table, or the entire queue waiting to be seated), a table swapping ability (only same-size), a turn-guest-into-zombie ability, and a raincheck spell, which causes the first person in the queue to reutrn at a later time.

You can swap people around in the queue to help you strategize. Once you seat a guest (you have tables seating 1 or 2 guests, and guests come in singles or pairs {singles can still sit alone at a 2-person table}), you will have to wait a few seconds before they place a bucket on the table. You then take the bucket (you can hold two at a time) and bring it to the brain tree. After a few seconds, the bucket will be set in front of the tree with food inside. Next, you pick up the bucket and give it to any applicable table (indicated by 1 or 2 on the bucket). When the guests are done eating, they will have their hands up with money bags - once you pick up the tab, you must click again to have the table cleaned (by ravens).

Later on, a supernatural huntress is introduced - she will periodically spawn and attempt to hex/kill your guests. This will initiate a mini-phase, where you must click on the guests that have been hexed in order to shield them from the attack; any guests not saved in time will be killed.

Another mechanic is introduced where certain customer types will not like being seated next to others (so far, werewolves hate being seated next to vampires {but not vice versa}). If you keep them seated next to each other and the werewolves have not yet been fed, they may eventually start a fight - you will have to click the fight to have your bouncer step in and remove them.

The zombie ability is useful since you can use it on a werewolf or vampire to turn them into a neutral creature. You will later have a new guest (skeleton girl) who is loved by werewolves, negating the negative effect of being seated next to vampires. The table swapping ability is also useful in a pinch if a fight is about to break out.

Overall, there is a good variety of game mechanics if you are interested in this type of game. The game remains fairly challenging and is nice as a time filler. Take a look if you are interested.

Recommend.

This game reminds me of Diner Dash and Cake Mania. It's basically just that. You have to make sure you keep your customers happy or else they'll leave or fight with each other. I like it better than Diner Dash because you get to help customers like zombies, vampires, and werewolves. I don't like it as much as Diner Dash because all you serve is some kind of berries that looks like brains. No variety for food but you have these extras you can purchase to up your movement speed, keep the monsters calm for a longer period of time etc

I got this game in a bundle, and I had never played Diner Dash or any variant of that game. Perhaps that is why I like this game so much (since so many of the reviews claim this is a worse close of diner dash), but I feel I would anyways. This is a very fun and casual game that can be addicting. The artstyle is excellent and what initally drew me to the game. I like all the monsters and that they all have different characteristics, so you actually have to think about placing them and such. I would definitely reccommend to any casual gamer. (:

One of my favorite types of games to play. It's an arcade, point and click game that challenges you to do well. I love trying to keep everything perfect.

A pretty fun little game about an orphaned sibling couple who decide to open a restaurant to serve zombies, vampires, werewolfs and other creatures in order to keep them from eating the local townsfolk. It has a tongue-in-cheek humour and was quite fun to play through.

MM BRAINS! While no innovator of the genre or GOTY candidate, Dead Hungry Diner is a relatively fun indie arcadey game which manages to be a competent casual Diner Dash clone. While not much at the core of this game is different from its predecesors except for a ghoulish Plants vs. Zombies-esque theme, it does everything it promises to deliver extremely well. Due to how well the game is executed, I see no reason to not recommend this game to fans of the time-management games or as an introduction to those who haven't.

OVERVIEW: To describe the game in a single sentence, the objective is to seat impatient customers, take their order, gather a brain-matter-like meal, serve it, collect your tip, and clean their table all while managing to keep them happy and not eat each other. As an arcadey title, it's a nice game to play when you only have a few minutes to play a game. At the same time, it's addicting enough to make you not want to stop. The game starts easy and progressively adds more elements - such as different monsters - to complicate your simple task as you progress worlds. As your progress, new abilities are unlocked to aid in your venture such as cheering up customers, making them more patient, and increasing your waitresses speed. At the end of a 90-120 second stage, your performance is evaluated based on your ability to serve customers quickly, chain together like-kind actions (ie cleaning multiple tables one-after-another), and place customers at tables that monsters of the same class previously ate at. Afterall, no respecting Zombie would want to eat at a table a werewolf left his hind furs at! While absolute perfection is not necessary, witty use of abilities, knowledge of chaining actions, and placing monsters at correct tables will be necessary to achieve a 3-start rating. However, a 3-star rating is only a concern if you're achievement hunting.

Dead Hungry Diner does have a dozen-or-so achievements (and one hidden) to keep you trudging along. The achievements are pretty generic (such as obtain 1000 starts) and will take multiple playthroughs to get 100%. In addition, it does have Steam Trading Card drops that should give you a perfect understanding of what the game is about while obtaining them. Finally, the game has multiple playstyles including a survive-until-death mode and an uncaptivating story mode that will add a little charm.

SOUND & ART: As I mentioned prior, the game has a well-polished Plants vs. Zombies inspired look. While the game has only a full-screen and (I think) 1024x768 resolution, the graphics do look decent - albeit a bit blurry on a 1920x1024 monitor. On the other hand, the games' repetitive music is probably worth muting after 15 minutes and throwing on a Helloween album for a better experience. The interface is very basic, but does the job it needs to do with little complaints.

RATING: 6/10. Note that: I'm a "5/10 is an average game" kind of guy where a 5/10 means 50% of games are worse. This game is above average, but definitely nothing special. Due to the game being fun, playable, and polished, it'd be an injustice to not recommend this game or to consider it worse than average. While I'm beating the dead horse by once again saying it's been done before, it has been done before. But Dead Hungry Diner has has been done well in a charming way.

PRICE: I was able to pick this title up as an "undesired title" in a Game Bundle (I believe Blink) for around $0.50. By undesired, I mean I had very little interest in it prior and probably wouldn't have gotten it unless it was from a bundle or free. Seeing as the trading cards were worth significantly more than the game, I chose to keep it and grab the trading cards while I slept. So mind you, 8 or so hours of my gameplay was just the game sitting open unplayed. I'd say the game is worth $0.50-$1.00 if you're craving some Diner Dash, but I personally wouldn't drop $6.99 on it myself. Despite having little interest in the game, I did have enough fun with it to warrant a buy if you can get it for under $1, but avoid it otherwise.

Any fan of the Diner Dash series will find themselves instantly at home, catering to the dietary fancies of a horde of ghastly beasties. While Dead Hungry Diner doesn't do anything necessessarily new, the game's charm lies in it's theme. Vampires, werewolves, zombies, banshees, and more intermingle, all in search of apparently delicious brainberries. Why slay monsters if you can just serve them dinner?

Dead Hungry Diner is a casual Restaurant City style game featuring zombies and brain berries rather than the typical restaurant patron. The game includes both quick game and story modes, supports the Steam Overlay and widescreen resolutions and is a very small 73 MB install. The music and graphics are both well done, and while the gameplay is fairly standard fare, the overall presentation is quite good. For a casual game of this nature this is a very good title. This is the perfect budget title for Facebook gamers who enjoy timed puzzle challenges, and for the low price it is offered at, a solid purchase.

Halloween themed sunday afternoon fun diner dash...sprinkled with creepy customers sounds. It gets a bit repetetive after a while but if you are a "gotta get 3stars on every level" nut like me, you gonna like it. Since full score is not that hard to get ^^

I played the demo on a lark and was instantly hooked. This game will honestly challenge you to think about each move you make. You have to establish a rhythm of getting your patrons seated, making sure they are located in the right positions, collecting their money, and keeping the tables clean after they leave.

While that may not seem interesting, it is. Add in the wide variety of spells and different approaches you can take to any of the situations you face and you have one heck of a wild and fun game.

While this game may appear simplistic and aimed at kids, I can guarantee that it is quite a bit more.

Dead Hungry Diner is fun, addicting and challenging. Cool cartoony graphics, variety of monster diners (vampires, werewolves and of zombies) and responsive controls with an interesting little story make this a blast to play. Great little game! 8/10
