In Lunch A Palooza players enter frenetic food fights as one of eight dishes, pushing other delicacies off the table in single player or multiplayer for up to four people. Pepper your character with power-ups to spice up your unique attacks. When dishing out the pain anything goes, from serving side dishes to sweep up the competition, to setting up push traps to clear the table for the next sitting. Remember, the dinner table arena is a hazardous place for food with flying enemies that always trying to nab a piece of you. FEATURES Single player vs CPU / Local or Online Multiplayer Gather up to three friends, or solo battle against the computer, in our four unique game modes: Main Course, Side Dish, King of the Cloche, and Royal Buffet. The Meal of your Dreams Choose between 8 different meals. Each one with different skills and attacks, that can be countered and balanced between other players. Dynamic Levels Every level offers a brand-new experience, with its unique visuals, gameplay, and soundtracks. You will both laugh and wonder at all the game’s themed stages, which feature many cultural and pop references. Enemies, Power-Ups and Traps Avoid endemic enemies, use power-ups, and push traps to take the lead, it is absolutely “no holds barred” in Lunch A Palooza! Progression System Unlock new levels, skins, characters, and power-ups to become the "Master Meal". Gather Everyone at the Table From kids to adults Lunch A Palooza is a game for everyone. With its easy to learn controls, and fast-paced random matches, it's perfect for both the beginner and seasoned gamer alike. GAME MODES Main Course (Free-for-All): The standard game mode, all versus all. Every player starts with 5 lives and tries to knock the rest of the players off the table. The last player standing wins. Side Dish (Team-mates): 2 vs 2 or 3 vs 1 team battle, where you’ll need to work together. The last team standing wins! Royal Buffet (Different food types): The same conditions from “Main Course” apply, but when you get thrown off you’re brought back to life as another character. There is an unlimited amount of lives available, but limited time for every match. The player with the least falls wins. King of the Cloche (King of the hill): Every player will seek to control the cloche of desserts that will be spawning in different parts of the stage. If two or more players stand on the cloche at the same time, the timer will stop, and only if one player remains the timer will continue. The cloche changes location every 30 seconds. In order to win the match, a player needs to control the cloche until the percentage hits 100.

Lunch A Palooza Critic Reviews

Lunch A Palooza had potential but overall, I felt like it came out a bit undercooked. There isn’t a lot of content here for a $20 game and with no online functionality it will only be for those who have local players. The poor physics and hit detection also make the gameplay hard to enjoy despite the charming visuals and soundtrack. With a bit more time this could’ve been an appetizing meal but as it stands this is one option on the menu you should skip.

It’s honestly hard to recommend this title outside potentially as an option to keep the kids busy due to the 4 player local multiplayer. As I said earlier, the potential for something genuinely good is buried there somewhere, but there’s just too much lacking in just about every area to recommend forking over $30 to play this.

Lunch a Palooza can be a fun food fighting brawler game, at the same time it’s very limited in terms of scope and locks content that should be present behind progression walls which makes no sense for a local party game.

Lunch a Palooza has all the ingredients for a fun party game but the order we are given ends up being more of a food related disaster. Awkward controls, confusing gameplay and a level that causes motion sickness. This is a lunch that needs a lot more time in the oven before it’s ready for consumption.
