Level completed

The object of the game is create three hamburgers by running over each of the ingredients, making them drop down levels until they make up complete burgers. Players must also avoid sausages and fried eggs who chase them down; players can stop them by firing pepper at them. However, if they catch the chef then the player will lose a life.[citation needed]


Crash magazine praised the game for its sound and graphics,[3] while Computer and Video Games said that "Barmy Burgers is a good game for any Spectrum-owning Burgertime fan."[4]
