It's an unfortunate moment in every gamer's life; you're in the middle of putting the world to rights in some sprawling JRPG, watching your beautiful female Machop become an even more glorious Machoke or simply punching a prostitute in GTA and then the beast arises. Hunger strikes. Thankfully there's no need to waste precious gaming time deciding how best to feed it, as for less than a fiver you can now get your DS to make the decision for you.
The next cheapest place to pick up Cooking Guide is Play but with their price tag of £7.99 they are asking an extra £3 for it, making Simply Games' offer a pretty tasty deal!
While it is by no means an actual game, this portable cookery class is actually a little gem and a very handy tool. There are 245 recipes to choose from, sourced from every corner of the globe. It is very easy to use with a simple, clean interface and excellent touch screen controls and audio commands to make it more than just a teeny tiny cook book.
I personally hate cooking and am the world's laziest chef but any time I have made the effort to break out a recipe book, the pages have ended up tarred and feathered, or at least covered in flour. I certainly wouldn't want the same happening to my little pink friend (umm, that's my DS!) so it's great that Cooking Guide gives you the option to work your way through its recipes by barking at it rather than having to fiddle with buttons with sticky fingers.
As I mentioned earlier, Cooking Guide is not a game in even the loosest sense of the word but it is a very useful little addition to your DS family and might even make cooking fun!
