The second installment of the internet business sim
Internet Cafe Simulator 2 is a paid video game developed by Cheesecake Dev. As the name suggests, this is the second installment of the simulation game of the same name. Here, you are back to managing your internet cafe. However, you also have to protect your business from thugs and mobsters.
Unlike other business simulators, there are more tasks in Internet Cafe Simulator 2 than simply growing your business. Although the graphics are not Google Map perfect, it is visually pleasing despite the low-key system requirements. However, the app is prone to lagging, and the gameplay is too short.
What does the game offer?
Like the first Internet Cafe Simulator, the game puts you in charge of an internet cafe. As the manager, you will make critical decisions, handle money, and, of course, bring in new customers. You will start with a ruined cafe, and it is up to you to make it a booming business. Note, however, that like most simulators, the game will have you figure out the mechanics on your own.
As mentioned, the activities are not limited to the usual upgrading your place and gathering more customers. You can get involved in completely illegal business dealings, such as selling guns. Though, what adds to the challenge are the mobsters and thugs that will come to trash your place and take your money. They can even throw a bomb inside your cafe. Sometimes, there are even more suicide bombers than customers.
The game is easy to master. As noted, there are only a few keys to press to manage your cafe. Additionally, unlike other video games, it does not require too much from your device. However, that said, the gameplay lacks focus. Moreover, the app is prone to lagging. Lastly, despite having only four to six hours of gameplay, the entire experience can be a bit boring.
Is the game good?
Overall, Internet Cafe Simulator 2 is a fresh addition to the business simulator genre. It offers a varied, engaging experience that other similar games lack. However, the enjoyable experience is hampered by a lack of gameplay focus and a few bugs. The mechanics are more about life simulation than running a cafe. Although, it has some fine moments, especially in the middle of the campaign.
