[Beyond PlayStation] Cake Laboratory Review
Cake Laboratory from GRIMTALIN and Square Head Games is a colorful casual-style game now on Nintendo Switch. Learn more about it in our Cake Laboratory review!
In Cake Laboratory you will be greeted by Antoine L’Eclair, the world’s greatest cake Baker. Your task is to complete all 50 levels to get the Golden Chapeu – the Golden Hat. You will need to build a cake tower by dropping cakes with the A button. You need to send down each cake layer right on the center of the plate to get a Perfect, and the more perfects you get and the better your cake is, the more stars you will get for your grade. You can receive up to a three-star rating for each level, and you can replay stages if you’re missing stars. If your tower is not balanced, dropping one more cake at the wrong spot can send it tumbling down. The further you progress in the game, the higher the cake tower will get, so you’ll need to pay attention!
You can quickly get back to playing the game in a few seconds, either starting from scratch or by having the game set up a perfect tower up to the layer in which you failed so that you only have to set a few more to win. This is great since it will allow players of all skill levels to slowly but surely making some progress in each stage as they learn how to perfectly place extra cakes on the tower without having it fall down to pieces before getting a game over that will make you have to start all over.
As you progress in the game, you will start to get new cake types thrown into the mix, and they will start to get smaller and smaller. You will sometimes need to balance, for example, small almost cylinder-like cakes to then start to use bigger cakes that you will need to lay down perfectly so that the whole thing doesn’t fall over. The cakes of different sizes will definitely change how you approach each stage.
While you play, you will unlock extra cakes you can use in subsequent stages as you build your lavish cake towers. On top of this, you can also make your cakes by selecting the cake type you will use, the icing and the decoration. The cakes you make will be stored in the My Cakes section for you to see, but since at first, you have a limited space, you will need to play the game some more to unlock extra plates for you to place the cakes on.
Cake Laboratory is a fun game with one goal and one goal only: building huge cake towers by using cakes of different sizes. This one is not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, but if you are looking for a relaxing game for a budget $2.99 price, or you have kids in your family, then this is a good investment that will provide you with a few hours of fun.
