What do you get when you combine a cooking show, with
accident waiting to happen? You get Tako the Octupus!
This is truly a unique cooking
show. Now, you are probably thinking, "Cooking
show!!!! Why in the world would I want to see a cooking
show?!". Well, when it involves a funny octopus who is
an accident waiting to happen, and some helpful cooking tips, it isn't
all that bad.
How it works
After a episode of Tako's cooking show
has loaded, it will start. You will notice a blank black bar
on the left.. Here, every so often extra things, jokes, tips,
and more will appear here. So keep your eye on it every so often.
Additionally, you will notice another black
bar at the bottom of the screen. Here, whenever a cooking
item (or maybe an item relating to the show's storyline) appears in
the show itself, a little icon for it will appear in the bottom
black bar. You can then click one of the icons there and you
will be brought to a page where you can buy the item. I applaud
the owner for thinking of such a clever idea ;-)
The graphics are excellent in my
opinion! Everything was drawn well, and all the colors seem
right. If you want an example, it kind of looks like cell
shaded art (which it partly is).
As with the graphics, the sound is also
great! The characters voices have good expression, and the
sound effects are very good also. The only bad thing I
noticed, was that when Tako screams, it never seemed to dramatic
(sorry, I'm being picky).
In conclusion...do I really need a
conclusion? ...must...go...watch...rest...of....Tako's Cooking
