This is the first game I’m doing! So I’m excited to bring you Manpuku Marche! This is a Google Play Store android app made by ASOBOX. This game has no English release yet and I don’t know Japanese so please bear with my struggle. This will be more of a guide than a review. For the people who have/want this game, this will be a guide on all the recipes and basics.
If you want this game, don’t type in the English name, copy and paste the Japanese name into the Play Store. Btw, I used a Google translate app to help me with this game. I’m making this guide so you don’t have to struggle at the hands of Google Translate too.
Story: (THANK YOU ISSI FOR THE HELP!!! -3-) Her/His words, “The basic story is that you (default name Ranchi/Lunch) are a royal food adviser for the prince. You get sent to the “World Tree” to act as food adviser for Marche to clear a debt of 5 million incurred by the prince. If this debt is not paid off, Gorman Pte./Co./Ltd/Industries/Company/whatever will confiscate the World Tree land as compensation. (Also, she’s DESPERATE to try the World Tree’s Fruit, which Safuran/Saffron, the prince’s secretary, and longtime best friend, told her about.)
Anyway, the weird flying thing, Jyuri(?) is kind of… a spirit fairy of the World Tree which chucks down fruits that grow on the tree. I’d explain the ending too, but… It might be a spoiler haha. For the chefs’ arrivals, it’s basically just some already there chef is their friend one way or the other and asked them to come help out.”
Bread:(Google Translate) Name: Eucalyptus. Story: “Yuukari’s story is a comedy on how she’s narcoleptic and you have to help her… also, he loves eating excessively.”
Desert/Sweets: (Google Translate) Name: Fennel. Story: “Fennel’s story is he’s actually a spy from Gorman to steal your recipes, and how he’s hesitating because he’s gradually falling in love with being a chef(… and Ranchi ///)”
Meat: (Google Translate) Name: Majoram: “Majoram’s story is that she has a curse where she turns into a dragon when she’s angry so you have to help her cover up”
Seafood:(Google Translate) Name: Garni: “Bouquet Garni’s story is that he’s trying to become a Maou to rescue his fishing hometown which is being eroded by industrialization.”
Name: Mitsuba: “Mitsuba’s story is she’s a rich girl who ran away from home to have a fated meeting with her true love (and also how she has an alternate deranged personality)”
Name: Rindou. Story: “It had something to do with him trying to fulfill his duty as the third son of his prestigious family or something like that.”
I believe the ingredient you have the less of will be the ingredient you obtain the most of. But you will obtain others aswell. The creatures will carry ingredients on top of their heads. To get through the wave of monsters you need “energy”. Which I’d represented by a flexing muscle at the top left hand corner. Some chefs use more strength than others so beware.
Don’t worry though. Your strength refills with time. Also, making your character eat when they’re hungry also replenishes strength. You also gain more as you lvl up. Pick a dish you want to bring to the creatures.
The more stars a dish has, the more ingredients you can get. When you get through the waves of friendly creatures, they will leave behind a treasure box.
Inside will be CP. CP is used to give hint to recipies It’s used to unlock your recipies. The chef you chose to go with you will gain that CP.
Going on the ingredient hunt will also unlock “chatting” with the other chefs but once again I don’t know Japanese so whatever. I still recommend talking to them since I’m not sure if that helps with getting recipes. So, that is pretty much the basics. You will figure out the other stuff. Trust me, it’s not that hard. Now time to get on with the recipes.
Recipies in this game are “combine this with that to get this” basically. You use the ingredients you obtained from the hunt. So far, I have:
You have to combines these ingredients with the base foods you earn instead of gather. The good this is, the base food never runs out so you never have to get any! (Yay)
It’s quite simple. But I’m going to post the recipes I have so far. If you have this game, feel free to contact me to add any recipies or ingredients. Basically anything to help out! I will keep adding as I play. (Sorry if they’re not in order)
Ok, literally after posting this, I got the next character, Tei. =.= Rice:
