PlayFirst announced the availability of Diner Dash: Home Hero the fourth Diner Dash game in the series. Diner Dash: Home Hero is not just another Diner Dash game. This time around players are able to buy restaurants and buy clothes for your character. Players are also able to share their designs online with the Diner Dash community at dinerdash.com.
The game comes with more than five hundred different clothing items and items to decorate your restaurants. Players are able to buy more items at 49 cents each. Along with clothing and decorations, players can now play either cooperative or competitive multi-player. When playing online, players can use their characters they created and play in their restaurants they created.
“The casual games market is growing nicely, but sticking with standalone games at the current $20-per-game business model isn’t giving casual gamers enough of what they want,” said John Welch, president and CEO, PlayFirst. “With the launch of Diner Dash: Hometown Hero, we debut personalization and sharing features found in social networks and virtual worlds, but with a ‘casual’ approach. This means accessible themes like diners and a wide range of price points, but most importantly a completely free base product — which is free forever, not just for 30 or 60 minutes.”
