Busy Sweets Factory Review

Sony have obviously never heard the old saying ‘Quality over Quantity’ as they realise mediocre to poor games week after week. So without further a due here are Sony’s latest minis instalments.

busy sweets

Busy Sweets Factory is another two player game where you and a friend take control of two aspiring bakers where you both have to place toppings on cakes and other desserts that make there way down on one of five conveyer belts. After three rounds you are rated on your performance. After about thirty seconds into each round you get given a warning before the conveyer belts speed up and multiple toppings make there way down. You occasionally get the odd toy robot that some how made it’s way onto the conveyer belts and if decorated by mistake you will be unable to do anything for a few seconds.

Now unfortunately if you do not have anyone to play the game with, you will most likely find that it is near impossible to get a half decent grade at the end of the three rounds as the desserts make there way down way to fast after the warning is given. Fortunately though no matter how badly you do in each round there is no game over, whether you want to play the full three rounds is an entirely different matter. Even when playing with a partner the game is a little easier but in all honesty it just isn’t really all that much fun. Between frantically trying to top every dessert and avoiding toy robots while sharing a PSP you can very quickly become frustrated and feed up, somehow Busy Sweets Factory just doesn’t seem worth the money.

Overall 1/10

    I thought Sony said at one point before the Minis section opened that their store was going to be different from Apples App Store.

    They said that their store was going to be higher quality than Apples and not have this type of garbage. Not only are they allowing this garbage in, they’re the ones producing it!!!

    God I hate Sony sometimes.

    The trouble is, it was Sony of Europe that started the Minis program, and it’s Sony of Japan making these games.

    That’s Sony’s real problem – the different divisions don’t work together with a common strategy, they just do what they want.

    Didn’t realize Sony of Europe started the Minis program and yes it’s unfortunate that they don’t work together so well.

    The different divisions make the others look like liars.

    Just a point of clarification on these games that they’re technically not “Minis” — they’re being released as Minis because there’s nowhere else to put them and the Minis store needs some stocking-up, but they don’t conform to general Minis guidelines (don’t play on PS3, don’t necessarily throttle-down the CPU.) In Japan, there is no Minis program yet for independents and instead these were released as a totally different initiative set that was basically to just sell small PSN games. There’s three types of cheap games in Japan — retro arcade, “feel for two” and game portions (minigames pulled from Byto Hell.) When brought to America, everything simply got shoved into the Minis store.

    Not that it matters, really though. What a marketing guy says about a program is not that important, all that really matters is what you go buy in the store.
