Review of 'Cookie'

Rating:4 User: Matt_B

Ultimate's third game is basically yet another variation on the first two; Jetpac and Pssst. However, instead of building a rocket or growing a plant, this time you're trying to make a cake.

The problems are twofold; firstly, the ingredients aren't being very co-operative and need to be bashed into the mixing bowl. Secondly there's a creature lurking in the bins, that incidentally bears a resemblance to Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street, trying to foul up the mix by throwing the wrong things into the mix.

It's yet another good 16K game from Ultimate, but they started to show signs that they were somewhat prone to rehashing their previous hits to make a new game. Cookie has enough of an identity of its own to still stand out, but only just.
