OverviewOverview

Brunch Club is a cooking game where you possess and move food around the kitchen to complete different recipes. This unusual way to cook creates a unique and silly challenge you take on with up to four people.

Each objective, like fry three eggs or make some toast, is shown at the top of the screen. It sounds simple, however getting the the ingredients where you need them is tricky as each one behaves differently when you posses it. Also, there are other items to get in the way and trip you up.

Each level has a different spin on the challenge, inspired by the film from which it takes its name: avoiding sniper fire in Fry Hard or waiting for the ever changing seasons in Game of Cones. You have a time limit and limited number of lives. As you progress levels also get more difficult with movie-themed hazards like snipers

Whether you play solo or with friends. The more people you have the less time you have to complete the level, because more people makes it easier. You can also go head to head against each other in split screen rounds.
