    Delicious 15: Emily's Miracle of Life (Dash-TM)

    A challenging Emily game with no option for difficulty.

    Options include separate sliders for Music and Sound, Full-screen and Hints.

    NOTE: The opening cutscene for level 51 would not play for me.  If you have the same issue, you can watch it on Youtube HERE .

    Story:

    The O'Malley's are expecting another baby at last, but how are they going to handle all of the preparation when Emily's cooking vlog is so popular... ?  Not to mention trying to keep healthy and being her usual generous and helpful self!

    Gameplay:

    I had a hard time with the cursor on this one... I kept losing track of where it was!  Luckily, I found a solution!  Did you know that you can increase the size of your system's cursor?  I made a simple guide HERE for those interested.

    The basic gameplay is the same as always:  Serve customers, make combos, find the mouse (on the story levels), earn coins to upgrade with and complete challenges.  Like in Message in a Bottle, story challenges don't happen every level, so you only earn diamonds on those levels, plus the actual Challenge levels.

    Diamonds are used to purchase items for the nursery, and while it's fun to decorate, it's kind of irritating that you have to take a photo after every single upgrade. :p

    As mentioned, this title is more challenging than many of the recent GameHouse Original Stories games; more reminiscent of the earlier Delicious games as far as difficulty goes.  Even though I am an experienced player and know that I need to work those combos to jack up the score, I had trouble getting 3 stars on multiple levels, especially at the final location.

    So what is amping up the difficulty so much?  Mini-actions.

    Periodically you'll need to deliver something that will need an additional action, such as clicking, swiping, rubbing the cursor back-and-forth, etc.  This wouldn't be so bad, except that sometimes you have to do three of these in a row to complete the mini, all while tracking other patrons' orders!  Between these actions and my trouble with losing the cursor, I had some frustrating moments.

    Speaking of which, there is an achievement for playing the Daily Challenge 15 days in a row... Really?  I don't take that long to finish these games, and of course I forgot to play yesterday.  Grr...

    Sights and Sounds:

    Music and SFX are the same quality as always, but graphically the detail is really outstanding, especially for the characters themselves.

    The six locations were incredibly different, but they felt cohesive nonetheless.  I am just very impressed by the quality of the graphics in this one.  The closing credits even have extra story in them!

    Verdict:

    Despite a few irritations I really enjoyed Miracle of Life.  The vibrant and beautiful locations, along with varied gameplay and a sweet story kept me engaged throughout.
