IGN writes: "Any fun you manage to squeeze out of Busy Sweets Factory is so incredibly short-lived that you'll likely forget about the game hours after you make the purchase. You also really need two people to enjoy it. While it is possible to play the game in single-player mode as some kind of brain-splitting exercise in hand-eye coordination, I wouldn't recommend it. At the end of the day, the game has about the same value as a chocolate bar for around the same price. I can't honestly say that I recommend spending your money on the non-edible option".
