We haven’t reviewed a game that tells a lot about itself in the title for quite some time but here’s one now – Cake Jam. The app will show you right in its avatar that this is a matching game and if there’s any doubt at all, it will evaporate once you start this free Android app.
As with most other matching games Cake Jam does not require a lot in the hardware department so you can download and run this game on nearly any Android device out there. The resemblances do not end here – there are many levels inside to beat and the matching rules are the same as in nearly all matching games so we will not focus on them here. Perhaps the only big difference is that here you will be matching cakes, which is okay with us.
Cake Jam offers 2D graphics only and nice sound but this is to be expected from such a game. Unfortunately we were a bit disappointed with this app – the game feels choppy, the graphics seem unpolished and the overall feeling is that the game is a somewhat unfinished product. It is really hard to describe these issues but Cake Jam definitely lacks smoothness inside the game – in the moves, in the way cakes are eliminated and more – everything feels choppy, choppy, choppy.
This is the reason why we have a hard time recommending this game. Cake Jam is not a bad game by itself and it can serve as your main (or even favorite) matching game but there are better games of the same genre out there, which definitely overshadow this one. So the best advice that we can give is to download this game, give it a try and if you like it – then keep it; if not – then look for other matching games – it won’t take long for you to find one.
Cake Jam is here on Google Play.
