Culinary Capers Abound as Video Game Favorite, BurgerTime, Debuts on PC

Namco Networks is cooking up a classic for casual gamers

SAN JOSE, Calif. — June 25, 2009 — Namco’s been busy in the kitchen — cooking up a new twist on an old classic with BurgerTime Deluxe. Available today for PCs, Namco Networks, a leading publisher and developer of interactive entertainment for mass-market casual gamers, announced the availability of BurgerTime Deluxe, a sequel in the highly successful BurgerTime franchise. A version for Mac users will be available later this summer.

Available at the PC games portal on NamcoGames.com (www.namcogames.com/pc_games), BurgerTime Deluxe challenges players to join Chefs Peter Pepper and Sally Salt as they help their uncle thwart the dastardly Vinnie Vinegar. Players scale platforms and assemble the burgers to clear more than 60 levels and speed through mini-games along the way. Each level introduces a variety of challenges for Peter and Sally including being chased by their food nemeses Mr. Hotdog, Mr. Egg and Mr. Pickle. Players can squash these foes with falling ingredients, stun them with pepper from a collected peppershaker or burn them with hot sauce.

“This brand new reboot of the popular ’80s classic is packed with addictive game play and a full immersive story that casual gamers of all ages will enjoy,” said David Schwartz, general manager for PC games at Namco Networks. “Fans of the franchise will find the classic platform action they love, but they will also find some enhancements designed specifically for the casual game audience including mini-games, updated graphics and story mode.”

In addition to a cast of culinary characters, BurgerTime Deluxe’s menu features:

  • A full course in Story Mode or just a snack in Quick Mode!
  • More than 60 levels and mini-games.
  • The ability to daze baddies with a handy pepper shaker and use special items to freeze, cook, or salt them to your tastes.

A free-60 minute trial of BurgerTime Deluxe can be downloaded at namcogames.com/pc_games. Once purchased for $19.95, players can access all 60 levels and can enjoy the game at anytime. In addition to download games, in the coming months, namcogames.com will also offer free flash games and a variety of new and classic games.
