Get Your First Good Look At BurgerTime HD, Coming This Summer

A few weeks ago, we reported that MonkeyPaw were developing an HD version of arcade classic, BurgerTime, for PC, WiiWare, Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. The same week, Spencer got to try the game out at GDC, finding it to be a proper “2.5D” remake of the original BurgerTime.


Now, MonkeyPaw have finally officially announced the game and released more information on what one can expect from it…and it’s quite the mouthful.


“We’ve kept the burger-making mechanic but placed the action into a Rotary Environmental System, allowing cylindrical 3D levels to rotate around a center axis and the player to build burgers around the circumference,” says John Greiner, president of MonkeyPaw Games. Look at the trailer above to see what he means.


BurgerTime HD comes with 40 levels and 4 bosses. The game will include four-player local and online play with an “intense competitive element.” Developer, Frozen Codebase, and MonkeyPaw are also preparing DLC for the game.


MonkeyPaw have BurgerTime HD slated for release this summer, and while a price hasn’t “officially” been announced, they expect it to cost $9.99 upon release. In the meantime, here are screenshots of the different console versions:

    Wow, looks a lot better than I expected. I don’t like the remixed theme though, it’s slowed down too much and hidden under a pretty generic rhythm track. Hopefully they’ll have the original in there somewhere too (they almost have to, really).

    Do you remember how far back I go in my memories to remember this game?

    It predates 8-bit Nintendo! At least, I’m pretty damn sure it does, unless my memory is failing…

    Live through 5-6 different gaming generations, and you start to feel the old age creeping, y’know?

    Relieved to see a variety of stage locations are present. The initial screens concerned me into thinking that the designers were convinced by an old belief in which classic arcade games with black backgrounds must take place in space.

    Huge lack of faith in people, I guess. I should know better too, after all: this game is good hands.

  • The Rotary system really reminds me of this flash game:

    Anyway, this game proves that old dogs can learn new tricks.

    sounds interesting enough. If it comes out for PC i’ll probably get it if it’s like 10-15 euros

    Seems like a great party game for my PS3. I’m still on Rag Doll Kung-Fu
