Cooking Mama First Look

Taito’s Cooking Mama is an action-puzzle game set in the kitchen, where you prepare all manner of delicious foodstuffs and get graded on your efforts. It was a surprise hit on Nintendo’s DS and Wii, and now it’s popped onto the App Store for $6.99!

From the App Store page:

“Popular the world over, the hit cooking action game ‘Cooking Mama’ is now available for the iPhone and iPod touch!

This edition features a generous helping of dishes from the home console series as well as plenty of never-before-seen cuisine!

The ‘Cooking Mama’ controls have also been optimized for use with the iPhone and iPod touch, ensuring a fresh play experience for even veterans of the home console releases!

‘Cooking Mama’ includes two fun game modes: ‘Let’s Cook,’ where players make meals with Mama, and ‘Cooking Contest,’ where players can freely practice a variety of recipes and techniques.”
