  • Summary: Based on the hit online game from Sandlot Games, Cake Mania for the Nintendo DS translates this fast-paced culinary crisis into a Touch Screen experience. Wait for customer requests, bake their cakes, ice and decorate them, then hand them out and collect your cash. Serve up seasonal confectionary delights to a variety of customers and see if you have what it takes to save the Evans' Bakery! [Majesco] Expand

  1. Puzzle fans and casual gamers looking for an affordable, quick game have a great option in Jill's bakery.

    Unfortunately, the touch screen is not as accurate as a mouse and I don’t even want to get started about the glitch - if it had happened any more often than it did, then I would be unable to recommend this game.
  3. An addictive new take on old classics such as "Burger Time." [Dec 2007, p.83]
  4. If you're a gamer looking to whet your palate on something new or, worse yet, a casual gamer looking for something to play during a train ride, consider long and hard before putting down money for this. The sharp difficulty curve is enough to scare away all but the most devoted and patient of gamers, and the repetition will lead to the frustration and hand cramps.
  5. There's no close-up work, only abstract coarse plotting between cookers and customers and, as such, it's a bit tedious. [Christmas 2007, p.70]
  6. 20
    Play the first level of Cake Mania and you've played them all.

    If you liked the PC game you'll like this one. Not for hardcore gamers but appeals to the casual gaming audience.

    If you're a hardcore gamer you're most likely going to want to pass this one aside. However, if you are one of the many growing casual gamers out there, cake mania ds will make a great add to your collection. Expand
