"Mad Chef" is a standout among tycoon sims for its simultaneous accessibility, depth, and pseudo-shoot 'em up feel. Whether you're into upgrade-heavy time and resource management games, or just looking for the next zany action title, Foursaken Media's latest doesn't disappoint.
It's almost too bad "Wild Defense" hit the App Store at a point when the Tower Defense genre - like so many others on this platform - has been pretty much beaten to death.

No, Yoda is not in this game. At least as far as I know -- he could still be hiding out somewhere within, because this time and resource management sim courtesy of Youda and G5 is absolutely sprawling!
Going into this, I refused to believe that the words "arcade" and "farm sim" could possibly go together. Several hours of nail-biting resource management challenge later, I came away a "Farm Frenzy" junkie. Just don't tell my friends, okay? They think I'm playing "Halo" and "Gears of War."
