I emailed the developers today, and here's the response I got:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! This is my favorite game and I was really hoping for a new one.

Oh, that sucks. I am definitely looking forward to it and was hoping it would be released this year. I've been playing BS 2 all over again.

Both 1 and, especially, 2 have serious replay value, so I am mega curious as to what BS 3 will be like.

I hope they give us some kind of release date projection sometime soon...

Still no music.

I am going to delete the game and try reinstalling, but again this sucks if I can't find a way to get this fixed...or find out why this is happening.

I haven't seen anyone else mention this but each time I open the game, I can hear the sound effects and voices, but not any music.

I rebooted a few times to see if the problem would go away, but alas, no music in the background, on the opening page, and especially during game play.

Do I have a faulty download? This sucks, because I really enjoyed the catchy music on the last game, and I love music in games, overall.

I see that this title is already out, but when will BFG offer SOF3 for download?

I am definitely looking forward to playing. I wanted to wait to get it on Big Fish although I see that the developer site has it available for 6.99.

What exactly does the aromatic lamp do? It has something to do with time, but I am a bit confused by the description. Are guests more patient when the lamp is purchased? I haven't purchased it yet, but will be able to soon since my funds are almost there. I've spent more of my money upgrading the stoves, icing stations, and drink dispensers so far.

Also, I think some people who aren't getting gold earlier on might not realize that you can always go back to earlier levels and work for more money to get as many upgrades and items from the shop as is available.

I'm enjoying the game and it reminds me somewhat of the game, Potion Bar, which I also enjoyed a great deal.

I, too, think that Magic Sweets should feature bonuses and chains during gameplay. That would be a nice enhancement. I also like the idea of shop decor upgrades that have special perks or functions (more patient customers, one-time chance per round to immediately prepare a customer request, bigger tips).

I agree, beautiful graphics and I think it's absolutely wonderful that the developers of the game are here on the forum helping out and interacting with players. Very cool, guys!

Yeah, this happened to me as well. On one level, during a Sugar Rush, I was able to make a 3-tiered cake with a topping and serve it to one of the customers.

I forgot to pay attention to see if I got more money out of it.

But I couldn't do this again after this happened, so this is definitely a glitch effect.

Too bad that none of the Cake Mania games allow even bigger and taller cakes with decorations.

On this level now and I can see the difficulty everyone is talking about.

It is very hard to serve the first cheerleader that comes in before the second one comes in and pairs up. I keep having to start over. I even have purple circle cakes ready to go, too, and still they pair up because I'm able to get over there and serve one.

I'll keep trying on this one.

I had a hard time reaching Expert on this level. Kept coming up short, usually getting between $1247-$1360 dollars.

Those hippy guys really do not give you much money, so at first I focused on giving them very expensive decorated cakes to try to get more money out of them since they take anything. However, I found that this was a waste of time.

The customers that pay the most are the cops and jocks, so I realized it was best to just give the hippies anything to get them out of the way so that I could clear the counter off for more higher paying customers to come in.

Additionally, as I also did in the beginning, I kept the TV going so that once each customer received their cakes, they had maximum hearts. And I constantly created chains to get as many Sugar Rushes as I could throughout the round.

I decided to try this strategy after the other one, giving the hippies expensive cakes, failed.

The new strategy worked. By quickly and indiscriminately serving the hippies, I was able to rack in more customers, especially more of the cops and jocks, and I got more money over the round.

I was able to finally achieve Expert status at $1467.

Hope this helps anyone who winds up stuck and frustrated with achieving Expert on Level 87.

I was able to get Expert on this round at $1902.

Strategies I used:

? Already have your 3-cake fridge filled up with cakes from the last round. This will knock some customers out quickly who order pre-made cakes right away.

? Make sure your TV is advanced (at least purple in color). This will allow you to quickly select channels over and over to continue to keep customers at the maximum amount of hearts

? Serve customers as quickly as you can and clear the counter of money right away so new customers can immediately come in. More customers equal more money.

? Try to get as many Sugar Rushes as you can throughout the round. Helps to build cakes quicker and clears customers from the counter faster. During Sugar Rushes, I don't have to worry about creating action chains, which is another benefit.

Well, after playing for a bit longer, the strategy is to have all of your baskets purchased for this round, if you don't already. I didn't. I was still missing the last two baskets.

This level presents a problem with shoppers having to wait until a basket is available if you haven't maxed out your purchase for baskets.

This makes it that customers become angry while waiting and that takes away from the amount of money they'll spend, so you wind up running short and not reaching expert status.

Another strategy, or should I say trick, is to finish level 4-7 on normal, advance to the next level (4-8), beat that on normal, replay again, and you'll notice there will be a lot more money to spend on new items. Purchase the last 2 baskets if you have over 2000 dollars and then play level 4-8 again. Don't worry if you get normal or expert. You just want to get past this level so you can return to the map and reselect level 4-7.

Once you can reselect 4-7, you'll still have all of the baskets purchased from your play in 4-8 as progress is accumulative once you establish it.

Level 4-7 will be easier to reach expert status this time around.

Anyone get expert on this level yet?

I always get between $1700-1800 dollars, but am having a hard time reaching the expert goal of $2000.

I've tried to have all of my machines ready and stocked right away (pizza, milkshakes, croissant display) and I try to keep a fast pace with keeping the floors clean and restocking the shelves, but never make it.

Anyone have any tips or strategies for achieving expert on this level?

One thing that irks me each time is when the mothers come in with the children who wind up getting lost. You have to waste time bringing the kids back to the mothers.

Well, there's also the idiot with the hammer who damages your machines.

I am playing in expert mode.

I can pass level 49 (treetops), but can't seem to get expert score. I've tried two ways to complete the level several times in expert score.

1. The first way is focusing on getting the customers in and out as quickly as possible, ignoring building up chains.

2. The second way is to try to get as many chains as I can in, matching as many people to colored seats as I can and waiting to serve dishes to several people or clean the tables all at once, without losing customers or making them too angry.

I always come up just a bit over 18000, but never getting expert score of at least 20000.

Any tips?
You're right. I didn't even look carefully at the description when it was released. Was just excited to see another installment for the franchise and downloaded it immediately.

OK cool, then. I am definitely enjoying the game so far.
How old is Flo supposed to be? I always figured she was in her early 20's or at youngest, 19.

But she looks so young in this edition. Like a 14 year old girl, whereas in other installments of the franchise, she looks to be about the age range I mentioned above, especially in the Wedding Dash series.

Just wondering if anyone else noticed a change in her appearance with regard to age. Again, it's not drastic, I just notice she looks a bit younger this time around.

I am glad that they are keeping the same voice actress for her. I've come to be familiar with whoever does her voice.

I think if a movie were ever done featuring Flo in any manner, the actress Alyson Hannigan would be a good match. She can play younger characters so well.

Just picture her with dark hair, those large eyes, that signature up-swoop ponytail that Flow has, that sideways smile that Flo has (I think Alyson can do quite well naturally) and the laid-back, slightly sarcastic-sounding voice, and you have a match.

its a great game. but buggy.

I bought it cuz it was the same voice actors as in potion bar, (NO bugs there!)
its... aggravating is all.

Oh, so I was right, then. I loved Potion Bar and some of the voices sounded VERY familiar as I played Burger Bustle initially, especially the voice for the black male customer. He sounded the same as the devilish character in Potion Bar. I also recognize other voices, too. Good to see my suspicions are confirmed. Nice.

I don't have a proper and polished review for now, but overall, I've become very addicted to this game. This makes me glad that when the timed mode of the game is done, there are other modes to look forward to. This give the game high replay value and endurance.

The game has very stimulating and starchy play. The graphics are cute, gameplay-"ergonomic", bold and stylish. This installment keeps me coming back for more and the degree of challenge increases deliciously upon the advancement of each level, making it harder to earn gold cups.

There are a few levels, so far, that almost seem impossible to earn gold medals in. On the WIld West section, level 14 seems simple but there's a point during gameplay where customers continue to order a bounty of sides for a long period until the time to earn a gold cup passes. I'll have to keep going back to this level, as I play, to keep trying to get gold.

One thing I really enjoy about winning awards or trophies is not just earning them but specifically that each awarded trophy comes with a new function or feature for the shop - faster staff, candy and music to calm customers' moods, and so on. It makes me look forward to earning each award and seeing them more than just an inevitable symbolic notch up in the game.

This is a really appealing feature that other time management games should employ in their own distinctive ways.

There's another game that is similar to this one but Burger Bustle did it better, in my opinion. Some of you might have played this one (I still recommend it as it is also fun and quirky); The game is Amelie's Cafe.

I had this problem too, but I did what others said and unchecked relaxed mode when the game was on pause. There's a glitch on this level that automatically switches some players to relaxed mode.

Try this and see what happens. It worked for me and now I am able to play level 46 on timed mode as desired.

Huh? Are you sure you responded to the right thread? Or are you trying to be antagonistic because you think it's somehow cute and angsty?

This thread wasn't posted as a joke or a jest or to be perverted. It was seriously posted to point out an odd sound component to the game that I thought was mystifying and puzzling...and to find out if anyone else noticed the same.

There's a section in the game, on the second bakery, where Cole decides to ask Lib out on a date. I noticed that along with the usual game theme music, I heard something else in the background during the dialog scene.

To my surprise, it was porn music. Slow, jazzy music with a woman talking in the looped track in a seductive manner. "That feels good" and so forth. I thought perhaps a video loaded somewhere on a social site I was on as a pop up or something, but I checked and it wasn't. It was part of the game. It wasn't anything in my browser. I turned off the game by going to the main menu and exiting and suddenly the background music stopped.

Has anyone else experienced this hidden background porn music in certain parts of the game. Is this intentionally or a glitch from developers?

LMAO! You are correct. I just took a look at some of the recipes again and see that some are indeed a bit odd. Mistakes, definitely.

I also notice that some recipes are in grams. That's more accurate for measuring and European cookbooks use that measurement unit often, but it would be nice to have consistent units of measurement.
