Strawberry Shortcake Four Seasons Cake for Nintendo DS

Updated on March 14, 2008

Review of the Game

This Strawberry Shortcake game for DS is an adventure style level game reminiscent of old Mario games. The game features Strawberry Shortcake collecting berries in different seasons for make a four seasons cake. For example, you start in the Spring area collecting strawberries.

The game controls are pretty easy to figure out. In the levels the top screen is the only screen you pay attention to going through the levels. The bottom screen shows how much life you have, which is shown in candy and has a max of 3. The bottom screen also shows how many bubbles you have, which also has a max of 3, and how many of the berries in the level you have collected over the total amount there are to find in the level, i.e. 0/20. Since you do everything on the top screen, this game does not take advantage of the touch screen capability of the DS. The main controls are the arrows to move left and right, A to jump, B to shoot bubbles to create places to jump higher, and down while jumping to perform a special twirl jump.

The graphics of this game are mixed in quality. The bottom screen graphics are good quality like the new Strawberry Shortcake cartoons, but the upper screen Strawberry Shortcake that you navigate through the game on is a mix of good and bad graphics. What I mean is that the background scenery of the levels is at least good, but Strawberry Shortcake looks out of place and is poorly done. It looks like she was dragged out of an old video game and placed in the graphics environment of this new video game. The sound quality is also decent. The music at least does not seem too repetitive.

Overall this game most appeals to younger kids around ages 5 to 8, especially girls and fans of Strawberry Shortcake. The game is pretty appropriately challenging for them in that it is easy to learn how to play, but not too easy to be played through very fast. There are plenty of levels to play through giving this game a good amount of depth, which the previous Strawberry Shortcake DS game kind of lacked, although the overall graphics that one is better.
