Review Fat Princess: Piece of Cake

Brandon Girod
8.2Excellent
In-depth gameplay mechanics, innovative concept, robust progression and leveling system
The art style is a bit of a turn off, the game's difficulty scales fast
In all my years, I never thought I’d ever be a part of a fat princess’ entourage. Heck, I never thought I’d meet a princess, yet here I am. In Fat Princess: Piece of Cake for Android, you control a party of soldiers who is trying to help the fat princess win her kingdom back. You’ll do this by matching gems that enable members of your party to do specific things.
So, mechanically, you’re not really doing anything differently than any other match three game. Match three or more gems, or match them in specific patterns, and cool things will happen to your board. What sets this game apart from the rest of the pack is the context in which these effects happen. For instance, you have warrior in your group and when you match the gems with swords on them, he will attack one specific target for a decent amount of damage.
Other gems initiate other types of attacks or effects from other party members that all play a crucial role in the game’s overall strategy. For instance, if you’re facing 6 enemies, you don’t want to keep matching red gems because your warrior only attacks one person at a time. Instead, you might want to match yellow musket gems or bombs so you can deal AOE damage. Alternatively, say you’re getting low on health. You have a healer in the group and you can match specific gems to heal your group up.
I love gameplay elements like this because it distracts me from the fact that I’m playing a match three game. Instead, I’m playing an RPG with match three mechanics.
As you play through the levels, you have different objectives that play into your typical mobile score template, which means there are three overlying objectives you can complete. These help you get a higher score which helps you level up your characters because everything scales in difficulty as you play.
Overall, Fat Princess: Piece of Cake was a pretty satisfying experience. I was never focused on the fact that I was playing a match three game, and it introduced a lot of concepts that kept the gameplay interesting.
