Dead Hungry Diner is the Quake of puzzle games, in that, you will need to be quick, accurate, and aware of everything happening on the screen.

v1.2 update went out a few days ago (on Steam).

Along with a few bits of polish and fixes, there's also support for French, Italian, Spanish and German, as well as Irish (as Gaeilge).

I wonder is that the first time a game has had support as Gaeilge?

there can't be many...

@Aphra

Yep, there's a story mode in "Dead Hungry Diner" which should be an enjoyable read for any kids out there (in any language) but for kids learning Irish (anywhere, U.S., U.K., Oz, etc.) it should be fresh, funny and entertaining.

Really looking forward to hearing how it is received.

As for being the first game to support Irish, not sure. I'd say it is most likely the first game on Steam to support Irish. Big Fish, iWin, Wild Tangent & Oberon all got the v1.2 update which include the Irish version, so it should filter out through to all the platforms over the next while.

Got a good review from DPAD Magazine:

http://www.dpadmagazine.com/2013/05/15/dead-hungry-diner-ios/

4/5 Stars.

Quote:
Dead Hungry Diner’s transition from PC monitor to iOS screen has been handled admirably, and – just as we suspected back in June 2012 – in the iPad it has found a made-to-measure home for its brand of frantic time-management gameplay. Its presentation remains hugely charming, and production values are high throughout and though it arguably could have done more to differentiate this version from its PC sibling, the impact of the change in control method cannot be underestimated. Dead Hungry Diner was always a fun title, and with this latest iteration it has achieved its full potential while giving itself a fighting chance of finding the larger audience that it rightly deserves.


As for IAP, there is none in Dead Hungry Diner, nor Advertisements, Pop-ups, etc.
