What are Food souls on Food Fantasy?

In short, they are the main story driving force in the Food Fantasy world of “Tierra,” literally food personified. They were once dormant spirits who inhabited different kinds of food, and were awakened by scientists who bring life to them in the game universe.

The player has to collect food souls to build an arsenal. After all Food Fantasy is a food story-driven game, so the focus in on different kinds of ingredients, cuisines, cooking styles, and everything else food-related, making it one of the most unique and bizarre games out there!

And as you collect food souls, in this gacha game, there are more common ones, along with rare and ultra rare food souls that can be collected.

There are more than 100 reasons why gacha game is excellent!

Best part is, you can not only collect food souls that are foods, but there are various drinks including alcoholic (beer, gin, red wine, etc.) and non-alcoholic ones (cola, Earl Grey tea, Oolong tea, etc.) that you can find as you collect ingredients to build your team.

The different characters come in tiers or levels depending on rarity and are food personified or carry the names of the food/drinks they represent. The categories, along with examples include:

Specials: B-52 (the layered cocktail liqueur), Beer, Black tea, Boston lobster, Peking Duck, Pizza, and Rice.

Summoning Food Souls

To fight the main antagonists in the game, the Fallen Angels, you have to collect food souls and battle them. Your main move is to summon various characters or food souls using in-game currency in the form of Soul embers and magic crystals (use up soul embers first as they have no other use than summoning food souls).

If you summon already collected food souls in the game, Food Fantasy gives you shards which you can use to ascend/evolve your food souls (much like Digi-eggs in Digimon adventure) or perform Shard Fusion that is basically raring up your food souls.

While playing Food Fantasy, there are some Food souls including Toast, Spaghetti, Black Truffle, etc., that cannot be summoned. They can be acquired permanently, however, but not acquired through summoning.

Food Fantasy Recipes

Recipes are the chief way of driving the story forward as they help increase the fondness of the Food souls you have. Additionally you complete take out orders, deliveries, fill airship crates, etc.

There are four kinds of cuisines from which you try out recipes, which are:

  • Gloriville: Involve meat, deep frying, and stewing techniques.
  • Sakurajima: Involve simple cooking, but gets knife skills to the test.
  • Light Kingdom: Stir-frying and steaming, among other techniques.
  • Lost Recipes: From forgotten cuisines such as Calamari skewers, grilled prawns, etc.

The first three are given as choices for you to learn, while lost recipes can be uncovered as and when you progress through different story lines in the games over the normal and hard stages of Food Fantasy.

Depending on the cuisine you choose first, you have to learn to make all the different game items in that, and that automatically gives you the ability to make everything from the other two cuisines as well.

You can acquire the requisite ingredients by playing Food Fantasy through the Normal and hard levels, but users are able to have brought Food Fantasy from the Market. Each recipe has an exquisite or gourmet counterpart that will be unlocked while you cook.

To develop on a Food Fantasy recipe, all you need is to have all the ingredients at hand and wait for the recipe to be unlocked.

Each recipe has 5 different attributes or aspects, which give the gamer different ability. These are:

  • Flavor: increases fame
  • Texture: increases extra Gold
  • Aroma: increases customer flow
  • Appearance: makes the dish cheaper to make
  • Eating time (for the customer to eat each particular food fantasy item): Static attribute

The more frequently you make a dish, the better you get and higher its attributes get too.

Seasonings

Seasonings are used to increase specific attributes of a dish, and various kinds of seasonings from black pepper to condensed milk are available. These do not include exquisite versions of seasonings including crystal sago, diced scallions, fresh garlic, etc.
