Street Food Tycoon

Ever dreamed of owning your own street food business? Now you can! And it costs less than £1! In this new app, you can sell a variety of the world’s most popular streetfood–from french fries to fishballs – and work your way up to becoming the next Streetfood Tycoon! Initially, the menu is very simple: fries, corn dogs in a bag, and corn dogs on a stick, with two condiments – cheese and ketchup. Your customers are in a hurry, and if you don’t get their order to them quickly, they’ll walk away, leaving you with wasted food and no sale. Periodically, you’ll have the opportunity to upgrade your food offerings or your equipment. Until, eventually, SOMETHING HAPPENS. I don’t know what yet – I’m only a few days in. But I want to know. Once I’m a fully-functioning Streetfood Tycoon, do I sell up and leave the street behind? Or am I all about pounding the pavement — and anything else is compromise. I’ll get back to you. I’ve got a line of customers to serve.
