Dinertown, the imaginary world of the Dash games, may be teeming with delicious food and hungry citizens, but they have their sense of competition too. And in the Fitness Dash game, you get to exploit this competitive spirit of the Dinertown citizens by starting a fitness center of your own and whipping these tubby nerds back to shape.
The idea for Fitness Dash started after the competitors of Dinertown for the regional tug-of-war tournament lost their crown from the challenging Donutville. Realizing that all they did the whole year was to eat the sumptuous cooking of Flo from Diner Dash, the citizens are on a quest to get into tip-top shape. Good thing that Jo is around to witness the struggle, and therefore, aims to help in any way she can and starting off by beginning her own Dash fitness center.
Just like all Dash games, this game also falls into the time management genre, where you’re supposed to serve customers and profit from making them exercise. The game employs a drag-and-drop mouse function as you designate your patrons to the machines that will satisfy their needs. Use the icons popping beside your customers’ bodies to know what to serve them next. Do this for all of the levels until you train the Dinertown residents enough for them to readily face the Donutville champions.
Of course, there are also additional tasks you have to accomplish when your customers ask for them. These tasks include cleaning the equipment, handing them towels and water bottles, and even changing the channel of the center’s TV according to their taste. To top it all off, various disasters strike too, like faulty plumbing on the showers and sneaky vendors trying to sell your customers some fat-producing ice cream. All in all making Fitness Dash quite a hectic game, but very balanced too with a steady difficulty curve over the course of the challenge.
