License End To Pull BurgerTime World Tour This Month

By   /   Apr 15, 2014

Publisher MonkeyPaw Games has announced that BurgerTime World Tour will be taken off all digital storefronts, as its license is due to expire. To compensate the loss, the company will slash the current price of the arcade title to $4.99, until its removal on April 30, 2014.

BurgerTime World Tour is a full adaptation remake of the 1982 classic where a chef runs around a set of platforms to create yummy burgers. By going up and down stairs, the player has to walk all over the ingredients to make them drop.

On the way, the character needs to avoid nasty food like pickles, eggs or peppers. It’s like Donkey Kong, but with food stacking, in a sense.

For the remake, levels dropped their static 2D appearance and instead opted for the same gameplay on a circular, rotating tube. Obstacles were also a lot more involved with jump pads, buttons and so forth.

Originally, BurgerTime World Tour released for Xbox Live Arcade first in November of 2011, and then it eventually came to other platforms as well. Normally, the release costs $9.99.

In a press release concerning the removal, MonkeyPaw’s Ryan Olsen stated:

Removing a game is never something we like to do, but it is part of the nature of working with retro game franchises.

Previously, the company also had to delay its Retro Rush promotion for Hyper Crazy Climber when some licensing issues arose. Coincidentally, that game releases this week on the US Playstation store.
