Play Arcade Classic BURGERTIME now!

"While making burgers, Peter Pepper must deal with three enemies: Mr. Hot Dog, Mr. Pickle, and Mr. Egg."
And so it begins, one of the most addictive arcade games ever in my opinion...I don't know how many hours I've given over to this game. Each new game starts with the same hope, maybe this time I'll get past level 4, maybe this time I'll accrue so much defensive pepper that those pesky pickles won't get me (oh, and don't get me started on that evil egg!!!). Anyway, I thought I'd share the love with you when I discovered I could embed the Flash game emulator by Robb Briggs into this blog page - oh joy! Also, check out these flyers and screens I've found of a few versions of the game.
