Merge to serve customers!

If you read our last Casual Gaming News post, you might remember us mentioning a new game by Trailmix. Love & Pies is a merge game with an immersive storyline about a single mother who leaves the big city to live at her mom’s countryside cafe only to find it on fire and her mom missing. Through the game, you will investigate the mystery of the fire and figure out where her mom went all while serving customers and renovating the building. You do this by merging items together to make new items.

The gameplay is good but nothing I haven’t seen before. I’m not the biggest fan of merge games anyway but the fun storyline definitely helps.


The graphics are adorable but nothing unique!

The graphics are similar to other merge and match-3 games I’ve played before. However, I do like how the characters have their own little personalities through the way they look. A lot of thought has been put into that department!

Music & Sounds

I love the audio for this game. It’s extremely cute and calming and adds so much to the casual gameplay.


Drag to control!

Like most merge games, you have to drag each item towards another to make a new item. In terms of renovating the cafe, you just need to tap on the renovation you like the most out of 3 options.
