Macworld has posted a review of BurgerTime Deluxe for Mac. The game is a remake of the 1980's original arcade title which challenges players to navigate a series of ladders and platforms to make burger ingredients fall onto plates below. Macworld gave the game a score of 2 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

At its core, BurgerTime is an arcade maze game akin to Pac-Man. You can’t leap from platform to platform, like with the classic game Lode Runner, but you can scale ladders up and down across the game field. You have a weapon at your disposal—a pepper shaker with an ammo supply that can be replenished by picking up power ups that appear randomly on each level. Spraying pepper into the face of the bad guy will incapacitate him for a few seconds as he rubs his eyes and enables you to run past him.

Other power-ups like potato chips, ice ice cream cones, coffee and tea give you extra points, but just like in the real world, if you see a hot order of french fries, you get a free life, so make sure to grab it. Other objects grant you even more abilities—ketchup kills all enemies on the map, sort of like what it does to the taste of a good burger. Salt stuns everyone, ice cubes grant you temporary invulnerability, and so on.

BurgerTime features a story mode that lets you play through each level progressively—there are more than 60 all together. Minigames throw some extra points and challenge into the mix, but they need to be activated by reaching special achievements within the game, like collecting the letters to spell the word “pepper.” A “Quick Mode” will just play random levels until you exhaust your supply of chefs.
