North Pole is an “extra” town in Kitchen Scramble. It appears in December, and is only around for a limited time. This town (that you can ignore if you want to) is decorated for Christmas.
Chef Crisp: Play North Pole for a limited time only! Earn special rewards, such as star tokens, power ups, or boosts, and premium ingredients, by passing each Star Gate!
The Star Gates are gates that block the player from going through them. Players need a total of 10 Star Tokens in order to pass a Star Gate. There is also a way to purchase more Stars with Kitchen Cash.
Chef Crisp: North Pole requires Candy Cane, not Supplies, to play each level.
Chef Crisp: Time is running out……..Once North Pole expires, you can no longer earn the rewards.
For some reason, the people who worked on the game put an unnecessary amount of punctuation into the text boxes. I’ve no idea why. Either this was written by people who aren’t very good with written English, or this was the only way to get around a glitch of some kind.
Chef Crisp: Friends can give you Candy Cane as a gift, or you can purchase Candy Cane from the store. Your Candy Cane supply will also replenish itself, but not as quickly as your Supplies do.
It appears that your “Friends” are people on Facebook who are also playing Kitchen Scramble. This bothers me tremendously, because I strongly dislike Facebook. Kitchen Scramble has a pop-up that attempts to encourage the player to connect to Facebook.
If you are playing Kitchen Scramble on an iPhone or iPad, go into your Settings. Look for “Game Center” and click on it. One of the options is to turn off the “Connect with Friends”. It stops Kitchen Scramble from tracking you. (At least, that’s how I understand it.)
Chef Crisp: Once North Pole expires, your Candy Cane will be gone, so try to use it all up.
Mechanic: Welcom back Pepper, are you ready for this year’s winter festival?
There is another typo! Whomever put this part into the game left off the “e” at the end of welcome.
Pepper: Hi! Yes I’m all set for the festival, got my special recipes right here.
Mechanic: Great, cause there are a lot of people looking forward to your special dishes.
Pepper: Oh! I better get right on it then.
New recipes for Level 1 are:
Chocolate Candy Cane
Chocolate Star Cookies
Chocolate Tree Cookies
Cheesy Ham Soup
Someone who was working on this game clearly made a “typo”. It should say Potatoes, not “Pototoes”.
Chocolate Man Cookies
I got three stars in Level 1 of North Pole!
New recipes for Level 2 are:
Christmas Tree Cup Cake
Chocolate Cup Cake
Players need to have the Cup Cake Maker Level 1 before they can start playing through Level 2. It costs 100,000 coins. I didn’t have that many coins when I tried to start Level 2. One way to earn more is to go back to some of the regular towns that you have already completed, and play those levels over and over again until you get the required amount of coins.
Cup Cake Maker Level 2 was so slow that it did not help me make progress through Level 2 at all! I decided to go back to previous towns and re-do levels that I already completed until I got the 200,000 coins that Cup Cake Maker Level 2 costs. Fortunately, this one is much faster than the Level 1 version!
I got three stars in Level 2 of North Pole!
No new recipes for Level 3
I got one star in Level 3.
I hadn’t quite learned the differences between the cupcake recipes yet.
The new recipe for Level 4 is:
Christmas Cup Cake
I got two stars on Level 4.
No more new recipes were added after Level 4. This is good, because it means the player doesn’t have to memorize any more new recipes in order to complete North Pole.
I got one star in Level 5. I wasn’t aware of that, because the star was blocked behind the Snow Gate. I kept trying to click on Level 5, hoping it would open up and show me how many stars I earned. Instead, the game decided to show me a pop-up regarding the Snow Gate.
This is the pop-up that I could not get past. It says “Buy Star Tokens”. The regular towns have Toll Booth tokens that look the same no matter what town you are in. North Pole has Snow Gates that require special tokens. The Snow Gate blocked me from seeing how many stars I earned in Level 5 – so I had to use 5 Kitchen Cash in order to make progress.
The rewards for passing the Snow Gate were: 5 golden spatulas, 5 hams, and 5 Star Tokens. Those tokens are in addition to the 10 Star Tokens I had already paid for.
Eventually, I went back and played through Level 5 again. I earned 1 star (total).
I got three stars on Level 6!
I got two stars on Level 7.
I got two stars on Level 8.
I got three stars on Level 9!
I got three stars in Level 10!
It took me three times to pass this level. In this one, the player must serve Christmas Candy to at least 5 customers. The problem is that you won’t always get enough customers who want it.
Snow Gate! The screenshot shows that I need 10 Star Tokens in order to get through this Snow Gate. I ended up with 24 Star Tokens. It is my understanding the the unused ones will disappear when the extra town of North Pole ends.
This time the rewards were 5 Heart Blasts, 5 Instant Dishes and 5 more Star Tokens.
Hipster: That was fun, but I guess that’s it for this year’s festival.
Pepper: Yep, it was a wonderful evening, can’t wait for next year.
Hipster: See you around and don’t forget to have some fun during the holidays.
Pepper: Thank you! You have a fun holiday too.
