Delicious 2 is the second installment in the Delicious series. It features two game modes: the main story mode, and an endless mode. The game introduces a cast of new characters and begins to flesh out Emily's character.
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. Customers come in, either choosing to order take-out at the counter or sit down at a table, and order one or more products, which Emily must then prepare and deliver to them. She must then handle the payment, and the customers will leave the restaurant. Seated customers leave behind messy tables, which must be cleaned before other customers can sit down. Customers must be served quickly as they gradually lose their patience. When they get angry, they'll storm out and the player loses points. Entertainers can give seated customers a mood boost, giving Emily more time to serve them. There are five restaurant with ten levels each.
- The game follows a storyline, which is told mainly through dialogue in cutscenes.
- Decorations can be bought from a catalog. Choosing the perfect combination increases customer tips.
- In addition to the goal score required to pass a level, achieving the higher expert score earns extra decoration money.
- Entertainers can be sent over to seated customers to raise their moods.
- Rather than all restaurants serving the same few dishes, each restaurant offers a variety of different dishes.
- Trophies can be earned by completing certain achievements.
- New customer type: kids
Emily gets a call from her uncle Antonio, who tells her his son Marcello has disappeared and left him deep in debt. Antonio has no choice but to close his restaurants as he can't pay his staff anymore. Emily tries to raise money to help her uncle. After saving all of Antonio's restaurants, Emily opens her own sushi bar.
The Happy CustomerEdit
The game features ten bonus levels in an endless mode. To unlock them a restaurant's endless scenario, all ten days must be completed. Completing all days with expert scores also unlocks the expert scenarios. With no goal scores and time limits on endless mode, the goal is to last for as many consecutive days as possible, with more and more customers showing up each day. On the selection screen, each scenario has a short description explaining what's going on and how it affects gameplay.
