Making puddings and sweets is lots of fun in Cooking Mama: Sweet Shop! Players make and create a wide assortment of delicious looking sweets and puddings, then serve customers in the shop to keep them happy. Create 60 different recipes by taking part in over 160 different mini-games, using the Nintendo 3DS™ stylus and even the microphone to cool, slice, stir, bake and decorate their creations. And just like always, don’t worry if you make a mistake - Mama will fix it for you! Sweets can be arranged and displayed in the sweet shop, then given to your customers to bring happiness to them all. The more sweets you create and complete, the more recipes you discover and the more your shop expands. Better yet, take on your friends in a competitive cook-off for up to four players, seeing who can make the tastiest treats of all!

There is a certain type of person who is going to enjoy this, and Cooking Mama: Sweet Shot has the good fortune to arrive at a time when I write for Destructoid, a man whose basic enjoyment of video gaming is such a low bar to hurdle that it can essentially get a pass other writers probably wouldn't give it. I like the game, warts and all. Objectively, you should be able to tell for yourself it shows nary a whisper of growth or innovation since the series' debut. Subjectively, I'm somehow that giggling schoolgirl once more, fawning over a cake I just mini-gamed into existence.

Cooking Mama: Sweet Shop is better suited for young children due to the incredibly easy mini-games and lack of variety.

Summary: Cooking Mama Sweet Shop is the same game we've played for years now. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but the franchise is starting to get as stale as a month-old fortune cookie. That said, it's still the accessible cooking game we've come to expect, and it does have a couple features worth checking out if you're interesting in a new cooking game.

Cooking Mama: Sweet Shop simply adds another title to the Cooking Mama formula without really making an effort to improve on an already rather lackluster series. The gameplay involves little more than simply swiping and tapping as you're told and how well you manage to do that has no actual impact on your experience within the game.
