    If you have a team of friends who are always online, I can almost call Cake Bash an essential purchase, as it is truly bonkers, and different each time. It’s just a shame that for single players, whilst there is fun to be had, it’s reduced down a smidge.

    An incredibly cute game full of food themed mini-games and adorable characters. This game really shines when played multiplayer locally or online. Prove that you have what it takes to become the tastiest treat in the bakery!

    Few party games offer as much to the genre as Cake Bash does with its downright delightful aesthetic and highly enjoyable gameplay.

    Featuring both local and online play, Cake Bash is one of the most enjoyable party games of recent memory. Mechanically it’s solid, and there’s a wonderful variety to its Bash and Snack events. It helps that it looks great, too, and the preposterousness of the whole affair does nothing but win you over. Where else can you pummel a doughnut as a chocolate chip muffin, after all? If you’re after a sweet game to play the next time you have some friends or family around, be sure to treat yourself to Cake Bash.

    Even in the face of plenty of competition from other party games, Cake Bash stands out with its polished and accessible gameplay. Because it is so easy to pick up and play, almost everyone should be able to find something to enjoy in this title. The unique idea of competing for toppings also adds a layer of depth without making Cake Bash more complex than it needs to be, making it easy to recommend as a solid addition to a line-up of party titles for any given game night.

    Cake Bash
    Pretty Sweet
    Cake bash is a 4 player mini gm based competitive game that can be played either local or online and here you play as a pastry of your choice with only one goal, to become the tastiest…
    Be the tastiest pastry by the end of this 20 minute series of mini games…
    And for the most part I had n absolute blast with this game…
    Each round the players vote on a game to play, all of which youll be chasing highscores, but some youre taking on the game, and some youll be taking on the other 3 players..collecting jelly beans, bashing eachother to knock them off, breaking fortune cookies, throwing in barries to a pie, roasting marshmallows, just to name a few..and dependant on how you do, youll earn coins that can be spent when it comes time to do some topping shopping, and this is how you become the tastiest, savin up for the best toppings and collecting 3 of those topping to upgrade it to a topping worth more points, and whoever has the most points by the end of the game wins.. with robots this is very easy to do, but when real players get involved there is tons of strategy at play here.. for starters the first player to win the first game has the ultimate advantage as they will be the only person during the first shopping stop to be able to afford the most expensive topping if one is available, already putting them onto the path for success, however there is a little luck machine on the side for those not as fortunate.. theselittle mystery balls cost half os much as a regular topping but can rewardyou with not only regular toppings, but even the most expesive topping for a fraction of the price, so if youre down on your luck, you have that machine to possibly give you the edge you need to come out on top.. however there is also the risk of getting moldy cheese or fish bones attached to you, and youll need to pay the same amount of coins to discard them.. so there is a risk as these items can take a hefty amount of points away from you in the end…
    My biggest complaint with Cake bash is that there just isn’t enough variety to the game modes… It will tak 3 and a half hours to unlock all of the places and modes, but getting to the end of that rainbow really stats to become quite repeettive and boring in the final hour, only a th fault of playing the same thing over and over, always having to do a cookie bash, always having to play sweet victory at the end… I need some variety in each op my play throughs, and playing the same mini game but on a different map with different hazards just isn’t enough.. theres only so many times I can beat up a cookie or uppercut a muffin that has too many jelly beans attached to it… at least in a row…
    Another complaint I have is in how cake bash saves progress.. im not sure when or how often it does, but there is a meta game of completing challaenges to unlock new versions of the characters you can choose, and a game crash caused me to lose over 20% of my game progress, which was about an hr or so of play time lost.. that’s about 3 rounds.. so the game didn’t event save my progress in between each round… thankfully some of the harder challenges were remembered, but some of the tedious ones were not which is quite frustrating..
    Overall though my girlfriend and I loved being cupcakes and donuts bashing eachother with spoons and dodging pigeons, forks, and knives…
    it was the final grind that only I had to endure that left me craving more in this game of sweets..
    I give Cake Bash
    a 7.5/10

    In Cake Bash, players have just one goal: to be the best sweet treat out there. However, with no Paul Hollywood to judge this contest, it’s upIn Cake Bash, players have just one goal: to be the best sweet treat out there. However, with no Paul Hollywood to judge this contest, it’s up to the player to earn chocolate coins by beating their opponents and then spending them on delicious decorations to make their cake the most appetizing by the time they get to the end of each match. The various modes, along with the differing maps that Cake Bash comes with, make each game different. It’s also nice that each round is voted upon by its participants, so if you have a favorite map it’s possible to influence voting towards it. As a grown man I feel embarrassed because liking this game so much . I mean it's impossible to hold your emotions inside they just mind boggling cute the cakes .If you have a team of friends who are always online, I can almost call Cake Bash an essential purchase, as it is truly bonkers, and different each time. It’s just a shame that for single players, whilst there is fun to be had, it’s reduced down a smidge. Expand
