Cooking Mama on the Nintendo DS was, it’s fair to say, rather massive, occupying the time of numerous gamers from young to old, appealing to everyone no matter the gender. This simple to start, difficult to put down “cooking” game generated numerous sequels and had millions of people across the globe looking embarrassed as they were caught blowing into their DS’s on the bus. Well now it makes a very welcome return on the 3DS, thanks to Rising Star and Japanese development studio Office Create, Mama once again dons her aprons for Cooking Mama: Sweet Shop.
In Cooking Mama: Sweet Shop players make and create a wide assortment of delicious looking sweets and puddings, and serve customers in the shop to keep them happy! There are 60 different recipes to create by taking part in over 160 different mini-games. Players use the stylus and even the microphone to cool, slice, stir, bake and decorate their creations. And just like always, don’t worry if you make a mistake – Mama will fix it for you!
Sweets can be arranged and displayed in the sweet shop, to provide to your customers and to keep them happy. The more sweets you create and complete, the more your shop expands. You may even trigger a special event! Cooking Mama: Sweet Shop also features a competitive multiplayer mode for two to four players – challenge your friends and see who can make the tastiest treats.
