Cake Mania review

  • Easy to grasp
  • Completely fam friendly
  • Cheap
  • Tiny details onscreen
  • Running out of lives
  • Impatient customers

We have other quibbles, but the big problem with Cake Mania is absolutely the screen size and resolution issue. What looks and plays great on a PC screen and mouse cannot be moved to the DS screen and stylus without real redesign consideration - which this didn't get. Moving the customers' happiness meters to the top screen isn't enough, and this failing takes a big bite out of the action (and for the record, this reviewer has better than 20/20 vision). It's disappointing: you'd think that a game about baking would know a little more about when it's necessary to substitute ingredients.
