More than 10 years after she first showed up, Cooking Mama is still out there whipping up virtual treats for the world to enjoy. This time out, it's all about baking the sweet stuff.
If you're unfamiliar with the series, it basically involves getting to grips with a series of cooking-themed minigames and hoping that the end result will be something (digitally) edible! This time out, there are upwards of 160 mini-games offering up tons of variety. They range from simple tasks such as peeling a banana through to trickier propositions such as rearranging your fridge to make room for ingredients that need to chill. Mess up and the results aren't all that dissimilar to real baking - you might need to wipe batter off the screen or use the microphone to blow batter away.
The minigames are spread across 60 treats, and as you progress a businesswoman will start showing up. If you make something tasty enough she might want to build a whole shop around it and help you take your business worldwide! Likewise, you can arrange your treats for sale and reinvest any money you make into refitting your shop and buying new kit.
As bakers know, doing it together can be extra fun and the same is true here - with download play available, you can go up against up to three of your friends in 15 different minigames.
