So I was over at some friends’ house the other day when someone brought up BurgerTime, one of the original video games from the 1980’s. When my friends started describing the game I couldn’t stop laughing. You can’t make this stuff up. Or if you can you’re a very twisted genius. Here are some excerpts from Wikipedia.
The player’s objective is to control his chef to make hamburgers by walking over the layers. When the player has walked along the entire length of a layer, the layer falls down one level. If a layer falls atop another, the lower layer will also fall down by a level. When all of the hamburger layers have fallen onto a tray below, that hamburger becomes complete.
While assembling the burgers, the player must dodge animated “enemy” foods: Mr Hot Dog, Mr Pickle and Mr Egg. Enemies may be temporarily killed by crushing them under falling layers; they will respawn at the edge of the play field within a few seconds. The player can also lure the enemies onto a partially-traversed layer and then finish crossing the layer, thus causing the layer to fall; the added weight of the enemy makes the layer drop by more than one level, and the dropped enemies are stunned for a few seconds.
The player has a limited supply of pepper which he can shake on nearby enemies to stun them and render them harmless for a few seconds.
