Delicious 2 is the sequel to the original Delicious game. The game features five restaurants of ten days each in story mode (Antonio's Restaurants), as well as an endless mode (The Happy Customer). Delicious 2 was released on Zylom on June 29, 2007.
The gameplay in Delicious 2 is essentially the same as in the first game. Each day, Emily has a goal to achieve within a certain time limit before the restaurant closes. Each day also has an expert goal to achieve which will give the player more decoration money and a trophy if all the expert goals are achieved, but this is not required to complete the game. To earn money, Emily must serve prepare the ordered food products and deliver them to her customers, who may choose either to sit down at a table to eat their meals, or come to the counter for their food. After finishing their food, one of the customers will come to the counter to pay (counter customers will want to pay immediately after being served) and then leave the restaurant. Emily, Francois or Marcello must then clean the table in order for new customers to be able to sit down there. Customers must be served quickly as they gradually lose their patience. When they get angry, they'll storm out and the player loses points. This can be avoided by serving them quickly. Customers will also get a mood raise if an entertainer comes to their table. After completing all ten days of each restaurant, the next one will become available. Unlike in the original game, in Delicious 2 each restaurant features a variety of different dishes.
Apart from the variety in dishes, Delicious 2 introduces a lot of new features, such as being the first Delicious game to have an actual plot. The story is told through cutscenes, which typically shows two characters talking to each other. It also introduces major characters that have appeared in many of the other sequels. Instead of chocolates to keep her customers happy, Emily can now hire entertainers and send them over to perform for a table that needs a mood boost. The game also has a catalog that the player can buy decorations from to fix the restaurants up. It also features a trophy cabinet, where trophies will be added for certain achievements (ie. completing the game with all expert levels).
Emily is the main character and the one that the player controls. She's helpful, brave and confident, and helps her uncle Antonio to pay off a huge debt by working in his restaurants.
Antonio is Emily's uncle and a new character. His son Marcello has ran off and left him in debt, and he calls upon Emily for help.
Francois is another character to make his debut. Shrewd, although sometimes a little bitter, he's Emily's best friend. He is an interior decorator and offers Emily decorations for the restaurants she works in. He also works as her busboy a couple of times.
Marcello is Antonio's son and Emily's cousin. He's gambled all of Antonio's money and disappeared without a trace, leaving Antonio in debt.
Norma is a friend of Marcello's. She often helps Emily by entertaining her customers. When Marcello comes back she makes him work with them to make up for his actions.
Ziggy is a guitarist who entertains Emily's guests in the first restaurant.
Freddy Fries is the game's antagonist. Antonio owes him money, and Freddie tries to put him out of business so that people will come to his own cafetaria.
Emily gets an unexpected call from her uncle Antonio. He tells her that Marcello has disappeared and asks for Emily's help in the restaurants. Emily sets up a lemonade stall in order to raise enough money to keep the Bistro open. Before long, Francois runs into her in the park. She tells him that she'll explain the situation to him later, to which he replies that she should fix up the place a bit, opening his decoration catalog for her. With the help of Francois, Norma and Ziggy, Emily gradually makes enough money to keep all of Antonio's restaurants open. To get back at Freddy Fries, she decides to open her own sushi bar and steal his customers away from him.
Each restaurant has two levels in endless mode. To unlock them, the player must complete all ten days of the restaurant (normal scenario) and complete all ten days with all expert levels (expert scenario). In this mode the player must try to last as many consecutive days as possible. On the selection screen, each scenario has a little paragraph explaining what's going on and how it affects gameplay.
