Top Chef will test players' skills as they scramble to reach the highest score possible with only 1 life, whilst playing as chef Peter Pepper and making their way across a maze of planks and ladders! The top ten scores will win some Microsoft prizes, including t-shirts and pin badges, with the top prize being an annual subscription to Antstream Arcade.
