Cake Maniac 2 - Review

Cake Maniac 2
Ages: Everyone

Cake Mania 2. I have this ingrained cynical sense for anything with a "2" in the title. After all, someone's heart and soul went into the original version what is left for Numero 2? Let's take a look.

Instead of one bakery location, there are now four, Roof top, Antartic with penguins, 100 years into the future, and an underwater aquarium at the Great Barrier Reef. There are a few more cake shapes fish, flower, moon and triangle; a few more toppings, caramel ripple and sprinkles to bring the number up to ten, new cake toppers, teddy bears, soccer balls, kittens and like items. Jill now has a girlfriend and a boyfriend. The new customers that inhabit the different locations are the most noticeable graphic improvements they range from men in hazard suits, to green suited surgeons, rock stars and space aliens. So everything has been expanded a little. There is even real instruction for players just like a grown up game. Remember, Jill is a material baker and while you can enjoy yourself, you must maximize her profits.

Fun Factor: New locations and customers adds interest.
Female Factor: She could work for me anytime.
Player Friendly: Producers made the game available on Win 98SE for those players who haven't upgraded.
