Have you played BurgerTime?
Who doesn’t love a good hamburger? As part of the Golden Age of Arcade Games, BurgerTime was among the popular choices for video game players. The cute and witty game play and design was perfect for the arcade game scene at that time. Created in 1982, the classic game was originally named Hamburger. The name was changed to BurgerTime upon introduction to the North American arcade market.
Players of BurgerTime control Chef Peter Pepper through multiple platforms. The object of the game is to build as many burgers as possible during game play.

By successfully walking over and dropping all the ingredients, the hamburgers are created and the level is complete.
