Sanrio’s Gudetama is very popular in Japan. This caricature of an egg yolk is so famous that there is a Gudetama-themed café in the land of the rising sun.
Even in the US, people just adore this quirky egg creature. You will find iPhone covers, t-shirts, toys and other fun stuff featuring the sad egg yolk. And now, there’s an addicting game called Gudetama Tap available at the Google Play Store.
In this cute Kawaii game, you will cook raw eggs to discover various kinds of Gudetama. When the dish is ready, you can place it on your table, poke it and in return get soy sauce and other goodies. You might hear it talk when you keep tapping it.
There are lots of egg recipes to unlock and each recipe lets you prepare eggsquisite (pun intended) dishes that contains your favorite yolk in various avatars. There are various prizes to collect, such as AR ticket, mystery ingredients that will help you cook food faster and a nice little social feature that lets you visit your friend’s kitchen and help him/her cook delicious recipes. This beginner-level guide will help you unlock more recipes, discover more lazy egg variations and earn rewards:
The action begins in your kitchen. You will have to tap a kitchenware to start cooking. You will have access to various time-bound recipes.
You will begin with 1-minute recipes and a simple cutting board and as you progress and reach new levels, you will unlock new kitchenware and yummier recipes that will help you discover new Gudetama. However, the time taken to prepare dishes varies from one recipe book to another.
Tap an unlocked recipe book pinned on your RV’s kitchen wall. It contains a list of recipes that will let you make various types of cute egg yolk dishes.
The time required to prepare a single recipe will be mentioned in the book. Now tap a recipe to place a raw egg on the kitchenware. Press the Cook button.
You will need GPs (Gudetama Points) to begin cooking. GPs are easy to earn and you will receive some as rewards when you start playing.
When cooking begins, the timer shows the remaining time left before food preparation is complete. Once finished, you will have to tap the kitchenware again to see the results.
The results screen has a unique way of displaying the outcome of your recipe. It’s like a roulette game.
The egg-shaped roulette is divided into three color-coded sections – Success, Surprise and Failure. If the wheel stops on the yellow section, the food you made is a success and you will get the same dish as shown in the recipe.
If it stops on the grey section, you will fail and won’t get the desired results. However, if the wheel stops on the blue section, you will get a surprise dish, which would be very different from the recipe. There are certain items that can help you achieve success and get surprise dishes. I will show you how to use them later.
Once the dish is ready, you can place it on the table. Tap No if you don’t want to place it. You can place the dish later, but for that you will need “Gudeguide” and a refrigerator – You can purchase these two at the Shop, under “Kitchenware”. The Gudeguide contains all Gudetama that you have created so far.
Don’t worry, all your creations are saved and once you get the refrigerator, you will start to place your favorite egg dish on the table any time.
After placing the cute yolk on the table, tap it. You will receive GP every time you tap it. The GP received depends on the level you currently are. So if you have reached level 3, then you will receive 3 GP per tap.
You may need lots of GPs to begin cooking complex recipes, so save them to cook delicious dishes. You reach a new level when you discover a new Gudetama.
Keep tapping the cute egg yolk until it speaks. Yes Gudetama speak and they sound damn cute. Don’t stop.
When they speak, it’s a hint that you might get a gift from them, so keep tapping even after they utter words.
Gifts include lots of soy sauce (which convert into GPs when you tap to collect them), items or rare phrases uttered by an egg.
Collect rare speeches so that you can listen to them via the Gudeguide. Oh and did I tell you that you will be rewarded for getting a new speech?
Now that you know how to play Gudetama Tap, check out these useful tips and hints that will help you unlock new recipes and collect more eggs.
Use Ingredients to Get Success in Cooking
As explained in the “Getting Started” section, you will have to finish cooking and spin the egg roulette to see if your newly created egg dish is a success or not.
With certain ingredients, you will increase the chances of being successful in cooking. These ingredients can be earned by completing Daily and Normal challenges, spinning the red eggarapon machine or helping a friend cook an egg dish in his room.
There are various types of secret ingredients such as secret ingredient S, L and M and each ingredient has varied effects on cooking.
For example: Secret ingredient S slightly increases the chances of success in cooking whereas ingredient L greatly increases success.
Choose your ingredient wisely when you spin the roulette. Use the L ingredient, if the grey area covers a large part of the roulette.
While it’s the yellow section that will cover a large part of the roulette, but sometimes, the grey part stands out as it covers more than 25 percent of the roulette and the wheel might stop at this area.
This usually is seen in rarer recipes or those that take more time to complete. You should use the M or L ingredient to increase the chances of success in such recipes.
You can use “Mysterious Chemical” to increase the chances of getting a surprise Gudetama. If you use this ingredient just before spinning the roulette, chances of the wheel to stop at the blue area are higher.
If you have bouillon cubes, then use them to slow down the roulette wheel. The cube’s grade determines how slow the roulette wheel will move. If it’s “S” grade than it will slow down by 5 percent, but if it is an “L” grade cube, then expect a 15% slowdown.
Use the L grade cube in recipes where the grey area covers most part of the wheel. With the wheel slowing down, it will be easy for you to tap the right time when it moves towards the yellow part of the roulette.
To use all these ingredients, you will need to go to your kitchen. Tap a kitchenware. Tap a recipe and press the “Cook” button.
When cooking is complete, Tap the green “Items” button in the Results screen and select a secret ingredient, mysterious chemical or a bouillon cube. Your selection should depend on the roulette’s layout and how much of it is covered by success, fail and surprise areas.
Use the mysterious chemical on recipes where you have achieved success in discovering a new egg. You can use the same recipe again to get a surprise egg, and this is when you should use the mysterious chemical.
How to Get Golden Eggs
Golden eggs can be used to unlock new recipes at the kitchen and accelerate cooking times. You will need them if you don’t want to wait for hours for the food to be cooked.
Save golden eggs only for these two purposes if you are keen on discovering new recipes and Gudetama.
While cooking eggs on a kitchenware, tap the “Rush” button and then tap the “Use” button to spend 2 golden eggs to accelerate cooking time. The number of eggs varies according to the time taken to prepare an egg dish.
Here are several ways to get Golden Egg in Gudetama Tap:
When you get a new Gudetama, the game will let you share your discovery via social networking sites such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. You will just have to tap a social networking icon to share your new creation to get a golden egg. You can even share your failed dishes to get eggs. Try it.
