Good concept but pretty bad execution.

The game has an interesting concept but playing a level and setting up machines can get very tedious when you have to do it again and again after every level. The story and design of the game is really well done though and some of the functions like the "simulate order" make the game more enjoyable. Some of the machines have really irritating requirements to work, i.e. the robot arm cannot pick up from a dispenser so you have to place a conveyor which just seems unnecessary.

Logic/puzzle game about creating automated production chains as efficiently as possible. Imagine playing Factorio in a kitchen scenario and you can program some of the workstations and you pretty much get Automachef. It's really good tbh

Interesting automation game focused on creating the most efficient fast food or restaurant only as a production chain. It requires some basic programming skills to use some devices, which are computers able to activate/deactivate others machines and minimaze waste of energy and ingredients. Overall graphic is quite good, but commands may be improved a lot.
