Back at GDC this year I saw a bunch of games made in the Defold game engine which were all incredibly high quality. One in particular, Bring Me Cakes [$2.99] stood out as a very well done block sliding puzzler which I just sort of assumed would get picked up by some random publisher, loaded to the brim with freemium shenanigans, and we'd be posting something along the lines of, "It's a really cool game provided you're willing to put up with tons of ads." It's an incredibly nice change of pace that this isn't the case. Bring Me Cakes is self published and is just a premium puzzle game with no IAP.

Take a look at our walkthrough from GDC:

At its most basic, you're trying to slide Little Red Riding Hood to the end of each level, avoiding wolves who also slide in the same cardinal direction you slide. It's a clever mechanic which the game does a beautiful job exploring through multiple environments that continue throwing different wrenches into the mix. Bring Me Cakes is on my list of games to spend more time with, but if you're looking for a high quality puzzle game that plays closer to the classic iOS puzzlers you may remember before freemium took over, definitely give this one a look.

    Just like Puzzle Pug... The same old concepts are going round and round new concept is coming except few gems ...

      I think that too sometimes to be honest, but every game is an evolution on a game that came before that game and so on. This game has some fun touches and therefore I play it, having fun is the main reason I play games ha ha, and have a laugh now and then.

        Yes...well said mah friend 😀
        Some games come so close to our heart that it never gets old or boring....But it feels nice to see games with new or old ideas presented differently punched with surprises and a good story.
        If you liked this game I think you might also have loved Pudding Monsters.
