After a string of intriguing and obscure shmups, Hamster has pulled out one of the all-time classics for this week's Arcade Archives release: Data East's BurgerTime, now available to download on Nintendo Switch.

Chances are if you're reading this here website, you probably don't need a heads-up on legendary title. Released in arcades back in 1982, BurgerTime is a single-screen platformer which sees players in control of chef Peter Pepper, scurrying up and down ladders in an effort to complete an order of hamburgers which - for unexplained reasons - are three times the size of our protagonist. Attempting to hinder Peter's progress are a selection of living foodstuffs, such as sausages and eggs, which Peter can stun with a quick dash of pepper.
