The basic concept behind this version game is to eliminate all the objects inside a certain amount of time, while staying on your budget. For this purpose you have the choice between several different starting scenarios that each prove more difficult than the last, as you strive to keep your expenses under control. As Flo starts her adventure, she lands up working at a local diner, where her mission is to cook the best meals and desserts for all the customers. However, when she lands a job as a counter clerk, it proves to be too much for her as she needs to manage her time better while completing the ordered tasks in the fastest time possible. After successfully completing the first part of her task, she gets the chance to take on another difficult task, which consists of driving a delivery cart around the city while delivering the food to every diner in the area.
When trying to complete Diner Dash: Flo on the Go!, there is no need to worry about the fact that the game is mainly a simulation of the real-life restaurant business, since all the features and menu items are functioning just like those in the real-life restaurant, except that the game offers Flo a vehicle that she can use while on the road. As in the original release of the game, Flo starts out with an inexpensive used diner, which she uses to begin the journey. The first part of the game allows you to purchase new equipment for you diner by earning money by performing various actions, such as ordering meals from various restaurants or asking your customers for their favorites. You can also buy upgrades for your vehicle as well as various gifts for various categories, such as those for women, which include dresses and jewelry.
