On Paper, This is probably the most boring game ever made. Just when I thought my days of admin hell were over, I have to make untold photocopies of the 'stapleton report' and phone every customer to let them know about the problems in our accounts department. Coffee Break truly is a game that takes sadistic pleasure in reminding me of my dark and sordid history with the photocopier.
But I'm being all melodramatic; Coffee Break, when it works, is actually quite good. Playing in a top-down point-and-click set-up. you go about your duties as one of two characters. You're given tasks to do each day, such as photocopying and making phone calls, but you're also given objectives to complete, such as arranging someone's birthday party or stealing money from the company.
You can chat to your co-workers by choosing pre-determined 'chat' topics, and if you tickle their fancy you'll eventually become friends. As new buddies, you can ask your colleagues to do your work for you, or if you're 'extra-special' friends, you can pop to the storage cupboard for an office quickie.
It's fun while it lasts, but Coffee Break is still far from stellar. The setup is very linear, it lacks depth and the theme tune feels like industrial solvent in my ears. But it's still better than the stuff from our coffee machine.
