I don't understand how the makers of this game expect it to sell. I completed the whole thing within 45 minutes using the 60 minute free trial. It seems a waste of time to make a game that only has 45 minutes of play time! Obviously I won't be buying a game that I have already managed to complete for free...

Unfortunately, I did not enjoy this game, and uninstalled it before finishing the demo. Oh well, at least I could try before buying.

This game was not fun at ALL. I downloaded and installed it, with high hopes as I tend to really like cooking and food games, and it was a big disappointment. I quit after 10 minutes. I even went back and retried it a few times throughout the day, but it was sadly still a bore.

I did not enjoy this game at all. I rarely complain about a game but I found this game frustrating and boring. Sorry

I agree with everyone. I can't believe I wasted my game credit on this!!! I kept thinking something good was coming. Boy, was I wrong!

I've played 40 of the 60 minute demo and there's NO cooking related gameplay yet. There are 5 minigames you HAVE to complete to get to whatever comes next, this includes a slide puzzle, a word game, a math strategy game using footpaths, a math grid "game" (I got this for homework when I was in school, assigned to make a grid based on numbers of points along the x and y axis), a logic game, and there's a grayed hidden objects game which I assume you get to after you complete the other 5 - STILL no recipe/cooking related stuff. I don't enjoy math as a game, especially when I expect to be playing a cooking game. By the time you get through these required minigames, your demo is expired so you never get to check out the recipe and scrapbook sections of the game.

I'm adding my 2 cents to the pool...everyone above me is correct! I finished the game before my trial was over. Plus, it's nothing more than a series of mini games. I don't mind a few mini games sprinkled into the actual game, but to have that be the entire game make this a giant waste of time!
