Betty Boop's Double Shift is a puzzle game, developed and published by DSI Games. The game is based on the popular Betty Boop cartoon series.

Gameplay[edit]

The gameplay is similar to the Diner Dash formula. Betty must move from table to table in order to serve her customers in a timely manner, but if she takes too much time, customers will get angry and leave. After a while, however, Betty Boop's Double Shift changes gears, and becomes a game more akin to Elite Beat Agents. Betty gets called to the front of the diner to sing a song, and the player must tap the stylus on the buttons that correspond to the note she sings.[1]

Reception[edit]

Critical reaction has been overwhelmingly negative. Nintendojo, which gave it a 3.0 out of 10, criticized the unresponsive touch controls, and the game's lack of originality.[1] IGN came down on the game for being a clone of Diner Dash and Cake Mania, and gave the game a 4.5 out of 10.[2]
