STP liked Cake Mania 3 quite a bit overall, and they think that it's one of the best games of its type available on the App Store. Basically, there's an entire PC game packed into this little download, and it plays very well. At the same time, they found that Cake Mania 3 can skate right on the edge between play and work, and they suspect that some players will prefer a more casual "casual game." There's also the issue of pricing: the game's currently "on sale" for $4.99, down from $7.99. Five bucks is completely reasonable, but they'd say eight is really pushing it.
