Gameplay

The gameplay is extremely simple to follow!

Icing on the Cake was popping up absolutely everywhere. Whenever I played a game, went on Facebook or any other social media, I saw an ad for it. So I thought that it was fate and I should review it for you guys! Upon looking it up on the app store, I noticed that it’s rated 2nd in top free iPhone games which is no surprise with the number of ads I saw! If you saw my previous post What’s Happened to the App Store’s Top Free Games? then you’ll already know what type of game this is. It’s one of those quick and cheaply made games that are pushed with ads to get money from downloads. The games are usually very simple, with few to none in-app purchases and repetitive gameplay.

Icing on the Cake is a game where you need to ice a cake and then smooth it down in the fastest way possible. After you complete a level, Icing on the Cake will tell you your time and then how fast the rest of the world did it. At first, I did find myself to be quite slow despite the gameplay being so simple. Through time, it got a lot easier to play.

Graphics

The graphics are basic at best!

The graphics for Icing on the Cake really aren’t great. The background is plain white with a very basic looking cake in front and a piping bag. Everything moves okay, but visually, it’s not so nice.

Music & Sounds

At first, I was confused about the sounds, as all I could really hear was a weird vibrating sound every time I played the game. Luckily, there is a feature to turn vibrate off which means you can only hear the piping bag. It’s pretty satisfying, especially if you’re into ASMR.

Controls

Drag to smooth out the icing!

The controls consist of dragging to smooth out the icing or to pipe the icing. Once you’ve covered the cake, your bar will fill up and you’ll be able to smooth it out!


The Power of in-app Purchases

Remove banner and full-screen ads from the store!

Icing on the Cake doesn’t have a virtual currency or anything like that to win on the game. The game is predominantly free but contains a lot of ads so there’s an option to remove them for £2.99 which I think is a fair price. If you really like the game, £2.99 is nothing for less frustrating gameplay (ads after every level).

The Verdict

What did you think of Icing on the Cake?

Despite not being a fan of these quick-money games, I found Icing on the Cake to be pretty addicting and weirdly satisfying. Although, it’s definitely one of those games that you get bored with after a few days but it’s still a nice idea.
