My review vanished mysteriously so I decided to try playing this game to see if it has improved at all. Not that anyone actually reads these reviews anyway; the people playing and rating this game certainly aren't.
To my surprise, it has. The visuals AND the controls, my two main gripes with the game, have been improved. For one, the cakes actually look like what they're suppose to. The turntable's speed can now be adjusted to be slower for precision work, or faster for quick smoothing. And the piping bag now has crosshairs and a two-second delay before it starts icing the cake, so you can get it into position before piping for extra precision. But that's where the good stuff ends.
For the perfectionistic gamer, it's virtually, if not literally, impossible to get a perfect 100% on any cake that isn't pre-iced. No matter how careful I am, I can never get a score over 95%. The game's rating system could be a bit more forgiving.
Also, the ads. At first, they weren't bad, but after three levels, I started getting forced video ads. The game already has banner ads and optional ads, so why are the forced video ads necessary?
Overall, this game is better than it was before. However, that just means that the game is actually worthy of a one-star rating (as opposed to "zero stars if I could").
