Dodge horrible hot dog. Defy brawling bread sticks. Pepper enormous eggs and charging cheese. Score points by squashing those nasties with a falling bun. Build all the burgers and you move on to the next maze. Get too close to a nasty, though, and it's back to Burger School for you in short order.

The joystick moves your chef and the fire button is referred to as the Pepper button as it allows you to dose a renegade condiment with pepper. Walking across each ingredient makes it drop down a level until a finished hamburger rests at the bottom of the screen. Hot dogs, eggs, breadsticks, and cheese chase after your chef. If they catch him, the round is over. There are 5 mazes that repeat after completing the 5th one.

BurgerTime was released in 1982 by Data East for its DECO Cassette System. The game's original title was Hamburger. It was ported to several home computers and consoles: Apple II, Atari 2600, ColecoVision, Commodore 64, MS-DOS, Intellivision, Mattel Aquarius, MSX, NES, PS2 and TI-99/4A. Arcade sequel, Super BurgerTime, not widely released, allows 2 player simultaneous play & is fairly true to the original BurgerTime.
