We all know the sad truth about the Tyrannosaurus Rex; the most feared dinosaur but teensy-tiny arms. It wouldn’t even be able to blow its own nose, if you can imagine a T-Rex with a cold that is. So imagine how it is going to manage creating pizzas? Well, imagine no more, because cosy arcade game Manitas Kitchen, out today on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch, is going to show you just that.
Meet the dino diners
It would be unfair of Trexito the T-Rex to be left all alone to create pizzas. Thankfully, he can call for help from other dinosaurs to help him make the best deep dishes around. There is Freckles “The Dough Expert”, Marsh “The Oven Master” and Collini “The Sauce Guy”. When you add to that the abundance of cheese thanks to that being the major component of the big meteor that should have wiped them all out, and you have a recipe for some tasty pizza.
And it wont just be pizza on the menu. As you progress, Trexito will remember other recipes from his time at culinary school. It seems these dinos are quite well integrated into society.
More than one dino chef
Also as you progress, you will unlock new skills, one of which is a flamethrower! A dinosaur with a flamethrower could be the new Dino Crisis. But don’t worry, it is only used in the kitchen to speed up the cooking procedure.
But word has gotten out about Trexito’s new pizzas and others want a slice of the pie. It seems that there is more than one culinary capable dinosaur; you just need to make sure you are the best one.
