20091107_update_penguinWow..... icon:face3_kao23

Penguins...kinda cute~ icon:h_heart09

And we're suppose to get rid of them by clicking them..

(Though if it's possible, I would like to have them without getting rid of them in my restaurant..icon:face3_kao10 )

Anyway, there are 6 troubles (at the mean time) where you can help your friends to get rid of them.


icon:no01 Help! These PENGUINS are helping themselves to the fish!

Click on them icon:body3_te03

icon:no02 Help! Plug these LEAKS before we're underwater!

Click on them icon:body3_te03

icon:no03 Help! The SKUNKS are putting people off their food!

Click on them icon:body3_te03

icon:no04 Help! These MUSHROOMS are taking over my garden!

This kind of UPDATES really made my day icon:h_heart08  It's so unexpected. icon:face_self-conscious_smile icon:h_heart04

Well, you still need to get rid of them for your friends. icon:face3_kao10

But, you of course are not doing it for free.

From what I've tried,

you'd get $15 by helping the first 5 friends, $10 the next 5 friends, $2 when you reached 37 friends and $1 when you reached 70 friends... icon:face3_kao15 (if i'm not mistaken)

And, new icon:o1_crown TROPHIES icon:o1_crown due to this cute lil' trouble. icon:an_mushi

Fixing the Retro Arcade Machine icon:o_k_kouguicon:h_kira02

20091107_update_fix_arcadeA timer will appeared once you click, on counting the time to complete. icon:o_w_mezamashi

Fixing, Washing, Cleaning icon:o_k_kouguicon:h_kira02icon:yb_toireicon:h_kira01icon:f_x_coffe03icon:h_shine


And guess what, you can even book your time to do the job.

For example, 2 machines went down icon:h_impacticon:h_f01

Click on 1 broken machines, the timer starts for [Fixing].

While 1st timer started to run,

you could still click on the 2nd broken machine, and the timer set for  [Waiting] until the 1st one finished fixing. icon:o_k_wrenchicon:h_kira02

20091108_update_fix_cancelClick twice on timer [Waiting] and it'll be cancelled.

So, it's like we are the head of Janitor? icon:face3_kao17

If we are going to aim for the trophies, I guess a janitor will not be needed so much...

But on the other hand, we can actually compete with the janitor or the waiters to see who got them fixed or cleaned first~ kinda a new type of game in Restaurant City i s'ppose.. icon:face3_kao07

Or you may think of a new layout which fit the current circumstances the best. icon:h_shine

icon:mark3_new Take care of friends' garden icon:mark3_new

Besides helping friends in settling the animal troubles, you can also help friends by helping them to water their garden.

20091107_update_garden1 click gets $1 icon:o_dollaricon:h_kira01

1 patch gets $3 icon:o_dollaricon:h_kira01icon:o_dollaricon:h_kira01

The whole garden gets $27 icon:o_dollaricon:h_kira01icon:o_dollaricon:h_kira01icon:o_dollaricon:h_kira01

The Restaurant City Garden

I know, this entry might be just so out-dated for your information. icon:face3_kao21

It's just that I still need to write about the Garden icon:p_futaba, even though you might have already got the details from all other game sites.. icon:face3_kao17

So, the Garden at the back of your restaurant (added by Playfish since the 28 Aug 2009), is actually a small farm which produces  ingredients to be used in recipes. icon:f_c_cakeicon:h_shineicon:f_noodleicon:h_shine

How to plant?

icon:body3_te03 First, click the soil, and the following window will pop-up.

20091027_farm_seedWanna plant a seed? Yeah, plant when you have the icon:o_dollaricon:o_dollaricon:o_dollar icon:h_kira01 of course.

It's pretty costly. icon:o_dollaricon:h_shine

There're 9 patches, each for 2,000 coins.

18,000 coins for all 9 patches at one time. icon:face2_bearing

Moreover, you wouldn't know what ingredients you are going to geticon:mark3_sign03 icon:face_shock

You know, you may get ingredients which do not even worth a coinicon:mark3_sign03 icon:face_shout  

Imagine 3 saffrons at a time...6,000 coins gone... icon:face_shouticon:face_shouticon:face_shout

There's not much to care of for the plants.

You just need to water the plants before it dries up. 

20091027_farm_dryThe plant will stop growing if you leave the soil dry to crack.

However, there's nothing to worry about as well. 

It will not die and back to growth once you water them again. icon:p_sabotenicon:h_shine

20091027_farm_waterOne click gives out 3 hours of water.
