After, what, a decade - I finally uploaded something to Newgrounds again! I was bored during lockdown, and started building a couple of short web games for fun. I'll keep uploading stuff like this as I build them, enjoy!

i like the cartoon-y artstyle, some looks hilarious, the thing about the game is that I DONT KNOW WHAT TO MIX xD maybe it was the time that rushing me ._.

Tutorial; the cheat sheet shows all of the drinks.

After having playing so many games lately, I thought I would never get to play a new game again that had the feeling that old flash games had. This one had this feeling and I enjoyed the game very much.
I didn't do well the first shift, it takes a while to understand what to do even with the tutorial (I think broke something in the tutorial and had to reset the game. Good to know it has a sort of save feature!), but once I got the hang of it the game was pretty fun.
Will definitively want to play again sometime, the characters and dialogue is what makes this game really stand out.
Welcome back to Newgrounds!

I love games with having to be a bartender I used to know by heart a lot of drink recipes as I used to want to get a mixology degree back in the day, so this was right up my alley.

While playing I found the mixing mechanic to be a tad confusing (or perhaps too simple?) as the cheat sheet will list a splash of this or use this or this, or lastly in the case of a cosmo where it mentions lemon after mixing.

I feel the transitions between menus, texts, etc. could be sped up. Things can be slightly too slow at least for me. If you continue to work on this it would be nice to implement a way to skip or progress the animation/ text by hitting space or left mouse click.

Overall, I still had a lot of fun on the first night of my shift. Even when I had repetitive customers it felt rewarding to get a drink right without using the cheat sheet, or when I knew the placement of the bottles when side chatter from customers littered my screen.

arrogancy responds:

Thanks for the first review! If more people want me to speed up transitions, I can do so in the next update when I add more customer patterns in.

For the drinks, I tried to be as accurate to the drinks as possible, thus the little side note about adding lemon after the fact. If people find that too confusing, I'll remove it. I might put garnishes in an update or possible sequel, too.

Thanks again for playing/reviewing, and I'm glad you had fun!
