"When Diner Dash exploded on the scene five years ago, it was an instant blockbuster, breaking new ground in casual games and defining the time-management category," said Kenny Shea Dinkin, PlayFirst’s Chief Creative Officer. "With this fifth sequel we wanted to make sure we were keeping the series just as fresh with new ideas and innovative game play and not relying on the same old stuff: so we blew up the diner! Players of Diner Dash 5: BOOM! will need to seat, serve and save the day through 50 outdoor levels across DinerTown’s wacky neighborhoods before they see their diner rebuilt to their personalized specifications."
