From the creators of Delicious and its sister series, comes a new Time Management saga based on the hit 1980s TV sitcom. Can you help Captain Stubing satisfy the demanding customers of this luxury cruise ship and make this trip a memorable one?
While we personally have never watched an episode of The Love Boat when it was on the air, this Time Management adaptation seems to stick pretty close to its source material. The game incorporates various characters from the original show as well as some light-hearted humor, which is perfectly integrated into the whimsical storyline. Despite the gameplay remaining fairly standard across all 60 levels, The Love Boat never gets stale thanks to the frequent switch-up in the environment and interesting events happening at the start of nearly every single level.
The Love Boat is the latest addition to the ever-growing line of Gamehouse’s Original Stories. For fans of this extensive gaming universe, The Love Boat should be extremely easy to get started on. The objective of each level is to pick up items, sometimes also assemble them, and deliver them to the customers. These actions also prompt several combos and bonuses that increase the possibility of you reaching the Three Stars goal at the end of each level.
Gamehouse cleverly adapts the familiar Delicious-style gameplay in such a way that fits with the luxury cruise theme of The Love Boat. Tasks range from serving drinks to customers to handing room keys over to passengers. One aspect that is strikingly different from all the other games in the Delicious universe is the level of challenge, which is unexpectedly high in this one. No matter how adept of a Time Management gamer you are, you will face some difficulties achieving three stars in every level due to the insane amount of tasks and the complexity of them.
The Love Boat does not disappoint when it comes to delivering top quality sights and sounds. The crisp graphics, bold colors, and lively animations are appropriate for the playful essence of the game. The audio is apologetically cheesy and sitcom-esque, with the utilization of classic laugh tracks and quirky musical tracks.
