Gameplay

Take on challenges to win!

Food Stylist caught my eye as soon as I saw it on the app store – I’ve never seen anything like it before. When it comes to designing games, I’m usually not very interested but as this revolved around food it seemed like a lot of fun.

You’re given certain tasks and then you’re entered into a competition where other users will vote on which person completed the task the best. For example, my first task was to pick the flavors and toppings for a cake. I went with:

  • Caramel cake base at the bottom
  • Caramel frosting in the middle
  • Chocolate cake base at the top
  • Chocolate toppings
  • A candle in the background

After about two minutes, everyone voted and I came third which I don’t think is too bad considering it was my first go.

I really enjoyed the gameplay as it felt competitive without becoming stressful.

Graphics

The graphics were very unique!

The graphics were quite cool although I wasn’t sure what to make of them at first. The scenarios looked very real yet fake simultaneously but were perfect for a game like this. I loved the visuals!

Music & Sounds

Now, usually, a muted game would annoy me. However, I think adding any kind of audio to Food Stylist would’ve totally ruined it. This game felt like a social media app, and, well, Instagram doesn’t have music.

Controls

Tap to control!

To pick your food and decoration, all you need to do is tap on the items at the bottom and they’ll appear on your creation. The controls were easy to use – I had no complaints.
