    Nom, Bubble Cake!***

    BASED ON DEMO


    Never tried bubble cake? Then you obviously haven’t played this funny little platformer. Now, there’s only one kind of game I play worse than time management games and that’s platformers, but I did enjoy this one in the brief time I managed to stay in the game.

    You are given the choice to play in different definitions, or in windowed mode, and I found windowed the most comfortable. The graphics are cartoony and pretty, not much on detail, the music is a little childish too, but then so is the game. Salawanda is a cute salamander traversing the bottom of the pond (?) she is in. She encounters nasty bumblebees and nice frogs and eats all the jellyfish and bubble cake she can find. Staying alive is tough, though, because there are so many obstacles to get around, and later there are bully bubbles!

    And swimming is a bit of a hit and miss kind of thing. Your cursor moves Salawanda, but sluggishly, as she swims through the water, only speeding up after some time, and turning in response slowly and erratically.

    Salawanda must get all 6 of the jellyfish to score points with which to buy cute hats (choice of 3 only in the first stage, don’t know if there’s more later). Top scores are recorded, from 0% to 100%. I managed to get through the first 10 levels, to finish the Mellow Garden, in 30 minutes of concentrated play, scoring only 40-50% each level. Two levels later, I ground to a halt unable to pass 4 mean bumblebees. I don’t know how many stages there are to the game.

    This is not an easy platformer, but it is cute and light-hearted, and simple to grasp. It has the advantage of being a non-verbal game, so it can be played by anyone.

    As a time gobbler, it’s a beauty.

    I recommend this game!

    I hate 'em! But this is a cute one and I think many will like it! I try to be unbiased.
