How to Play Penguin Diner 2

Penguin Diner 2 is the sequel to the recently published business game, Penguin Diner. In Penguin Diner 2, players are controlling a penguin waitress named Penny. Penny has to seat customers, take orders, serve food, and pick up their tips. It is a fast-paced game that requires constant attention and thinking to maintain a successful restaurant.

The faster that you execute every action, the higher of a tip you will earn. These tips can be used to buy upgrades for the shop and eventually create a huge diner full of happy customers who receive great service.

How to Play Penguin Diner 2

The actual controls for Penguin Diner 2 are as basic as can be. There are no keyboard controls involved, it is purely a point-and-click game. Assign tables to customers by clicking on empty tables, pick up food by clicking on the order table, and collect tips by clicking on the money that the customers have left. Learning how to play Penguin Diner 2 is very intuitive, it usually only takes new players a few minutes to understand.

Penguin Diner 2 Strategies

The controls are easy as can be, but mastering Penguin Diner 2 is a whole different challenge. Read on to learn 4 tips that will help you master the basics of our penguin diner game.

Get extra tables for the customers

As you get more money from tips, you will be able to spend it on tons of different upgrades for the diner. One of the most important upgrades that you can make is to add more tables to the diner. This tip is pretty simple – more tables, more customers that you are able to serve. This results in customers getting seated faster, which will end up with you getting more tips. Not to mention, it also gets more customers in your diner at once, which is always a good thing.

Make room for new customers

How to Play Penguin Diner 2

A table won’t become totally open for new customers until you pick up the tip of whoever just ate at the diner. This means that whenever you see a tip on a table, this should be your top priority, that way you can clear room for more customers as soon as possible.

Improve your server skills

Being a server is not an easy job by any definition. There are a few ways to improve the servers’ skills and make the diner run smoother. For example, you can purchase skates for Penny that will help her move around the restaurant faster. While this isn’t necessary at the beginning of the game, it will be as you get deeper into the game. More customers, faster lines, and more tables to wait for means that you will need to give Penny every advantage she can get.

Spend money to make money

It can be tempting to save up all of your tip money to pay for a huge upgrade for the store. Instead of saving up though, try and incrementally spend your money on small things that will help your business.

For example, instead of saving tons of money on a third extra table for customers, maybe try and get your first upgrade on rollerskates that way you can get some extra speed. While they will both help you, the skates will cost far less.
