Cake Mania 2:
In the first installment of Cake Mania, hotshot pâtissier Jill got the Evans Bakery back in business. Now in the second installment, Jill is bored out of her wits and wants to embark on an adventure of her own.
One mundane day, Jill, the main character, received offers from two important people at the same time -- Risha, her college friend and Jack, an old boyfriend. Perfect timing, since Jill was getting bored in her grandparents' bakeshop. Depending on whom you choose, Jill will end up in either a ritzy rooftop patisserie or an underwater bakery respectively. You have one goal in mind -- keep baking cakes at the shortest time to keep customers happy. You'll start out with one oven and one frosting station. You have to juggle baking the cake, applying frosting, and attending to customers at the same time. Customers vary greatly -- from aliens to doctors to old women and debutantes.
The game itself is memory-heavy so make sure your computer can handle the load. The gameplay is relatively simple -- all you need is the presence of mind and quickness of reaction. Just make sure you move fast enough before the customer loses patience in the form of five red hearts. The oven could crank out cakes of different shapes so you best be careful in what you bake, otherwise, you'd have to throw the cake away with its equivalent cost deducted from your overall profits. If playing the storyline game does not appeal to you, you can always play the "Endless Game" and bake cakes to your heart's content -- that is until you get tired from clicking your mouse all day long though seeing as how enjoyable Cake Mania 2 is, it might take more than just a couple of hours before you call it quits.
