Fancy Cakes Review
Fancy Cakes from TrimeCore is the type of game that you would see on Facebook, next to the likes of Candy Crush Saga, along with a number of other casual games. Also, you can find this iOS game on the App Store. It is quite enjoyable to play and will not bore you with its addictive puzzle adventure gameplay.
What Fancy Cakes does in terms of gameplay is somewhat taking a part from the aesthetics and visuals of the game, Candy Crush Saga, with bright and vibrant colors cropping up almost every single place you look. They combine it with the stacking gameplay of the popular mobile game, Threes. In Threes, you have to swipe at your screen, all so two shapes that are identical stack onto one another and double up the amount of score they give the player at the end of the run.
Fancy Cakes takes that formula, except instead of what Threes does, which is when you swipe at the screen everything only moves one place; whereas in Fancy Cakes they all move to the opposite end of the screen. I can understand why they made the decision they did for the mechanics and everything, all so they could make it a little more streamlined for casual players.
Animations for this game may be little bit hit and miss at times. Every now and again you will come across a set of animations that look smooth and well-done, but they get over-shadowed sometimes by a lackluster lot. Considering that Fancy Cakes is designed to have loads of levels, all of which they’re going to want you to replay on and keep playing up until your fingers drop off; there is still some room for improvement on the animations.
Aesthetically, just because the game has taken its inspiration from Candy Crush Saga, the visuals it has employed are all ones that I personally can’t complain about. Every single inch of this game is bright and vibrant, and is anything less than an eyesore, regardless of the total amount of time you’ve put into the game.
Personally, I’m not a fan of the energy system. However, since many free-to-play games implement it in their games, it has become somewhat accepted. Although it takes about several minutes before you get one measly piece of energy, and you can at maximum probably get around a few minutes of gameplay from it. Nevertheless, it’s worth the wait.
Overall, Fancy Cakes (Free) is technically a fun game with some nice visuals. I do enjoy the bright and charming graphics the game has. Just be patient with the energy system and the replay value is more than enough to let you play the game again and again.
Summary: Fancy Cakes is an above-average game with dazzling visuals. With plenty of replay value, you will definitely have fun with this puzzle adventure title for iOS.
