Diner Dash: Hometown Hero is released as the fourth installment in the ever popular Diner Dash series. In this sequel, we follow Flo, our heroine as she visits her grandmother and find a decrepit town where her roots used to be. Armed with the tenacity of the previous series, Flo sets out to reclaim the glory of her town, one important landmark at a time.
PlayFirst has already had successes in its bag with the previous Diner Dash series and Hometown Hero is proving to be yet another success. New and returning players will find the same intense pace that Diner Dash sets out in all its time management games but with the addition of new locations, a more fast paced turnabout for gamers as they sort customers into proper color coded seats and take orders all while running around and serving the next. Each level gets progressively difficult as you move forward and it is your task to make sure that all customers leave with as much hearts as they came in with (or more).
Added changes to Hometown Hero are the introduction of competition via assistants that are entered in at each level. Flo must strive to make more money than her assistant for a single shift. There's also the concept of a timeless game where Flo works unlimited shifts and the only goal is to make lots and lots of money.
