Educational Potential
Cooking fever is an arcade game where the player is asked to cook different meals throughout the levels. There are 400 different meals to cook and 150 different ingredients to use. With the levels the restaurants changes so the meals always fit into the environment.

The learners have to memorize the ingredients for different meals and to act fast to complete a level. Necessary approaches differ through the levels, some focus on how many meals are cooked, while others have the broadest variety of meals as a goal

None of the levels show a moment of violence - so it would be suitable for children in elementary school who are learning about nutrition.
