Gameplay Edit

In Chef, the player plays as a chef and must juggle food in the air and prevent it from landing on the ground. The player has three lives and if the food touches the ground, the player will lose a life. The game ends when the food touches the ground three times (when all three lives are lost). If the food is dropped a mouse is shown to pick it up and run away with it. The mouse is holding a fork and knife.

There is a cat on a shelf, in the upper left corner of the screen, that will catch the food farthest to the left with a fork randomly and let it drop after a few seconds.

In game A the player cooks three meals but in game B the player cooks four meals.
