Assemble burgers as fast as you can

Decent graphics, one-finger controls
Too easy, very common, monotonous game play
If you dream of flipping burgers for a living, then Burger has got your name on it, written in ketchup on a sesame seed bun. I'm not going to mince words here - this game sucks for anyone over the age of 12. I mean, the graphics are actually decent and made me forget that I no longer eat burgers. But the play is very monotonous and goes nowhere, fast; kind of like a dead end career as a burger slinger.
As the story goes, someone did too much partying, dropped out of college and found themselves at a dead end job. Actually, that has nothing to do with this game, I just needed to make this sound more interesting than it is. Basically, all you're doing here is assembling burgers within a time limit. There's ingredients along the bottom of the screen, and a burger order pictured on the right. The objective, is to just tap the ingredients, working from the bottom up, and assemble the burger so it exactly matches the sample on the right. So perhaps it might be, bottom bun, ketchup, lettuce, beef patty and top bun; whatever configuration is seen on the right, is what is assembled on the left. Simple. Easy. Boring.
The graphics are colorful and inviting, hence why I was craving burgers after playing this. The animation is pared down to just the most essential elements. Just keep up with the repetitive motion until all burgers are made and your legal 15 minute break rescues you from the doldrums. The good news is, this isn't your real job; the bad news is, for some stupid reason, you're playing it of your own volition.
Burger is ideal for kids, teaching them to differentiate colors and shapes, and learn to mimic simple assembly.
