Cake Mania: Main Street (

A new mall is opening in Baker’s Field, threatening to destroy it’s small town atmosphere.  Can Jill, Jack, Risha and Tiny put a stop to it?

The story’s simplistic but the character interaction makes up for it.  There are summaries between levels that explain hilarious occurrences during the game.  Jill’s also acting strange and getting very weird cravings.  Jack’s opening a burger place and comes up with bad idea after bad idea trying to save Baker’s Field.  Risha, a city girl, is trying to adjust to small town life.  Tiny’s getting over his hatred of octopus and hoping no one orders Fugu.

The game play is the same as always with two differences.  For starters, Jack’s burger shop and Tiny’s sushi place are not the typical play.

You also start out on a map where you not only pick the shop you want to play in, you have to upgrade them completely and buy new attractions for Baker’s Field.

This game is addictive and funny.  I give it 9 out of 10, a nice change from the usual game play.

Cake Mania 2 (

Jill just got the bakery back for her grandparents but she still feels like something is missing.  A few minutes later, two friends of hers ask for help with their bakeries.  What path will Jill take in her life?

In this game, you meet Jack and Risha.  You choose which one to help and after each setting is complete, you pick what to do next.

The story differs depending on what you pick.  You can find love, fame, or realize that everything you wanted was there all along.

As I said earlier, you pick what direction Jill takes in the game.  Each ending unlocks another trophy for the main menu.  Other than that, it’s the same old thing.  You bake a cake, frost it, put a topping on it and give it to the customer that requested it.  You can’t advance through the levels until you get the required goal.  If you’re lucky, you can get the super goal.

In between levels, you can purchase upgrades for your shop.

It’s fun and addictive.  I give it 8 out of 10, even better than the last game.
