Own a Click Wheel iPod? Sad that you haven't been able to wade through thousands of awful, amateurish App Store games? Good news: now there's a faster, easier way to experience all the same nonsense for yourself! Enter Sandlot Games' Cake Mania 3 ($5), the latest Click Wheel iPod game, and the first we've played that is so completely moronic that even our editor who generally enjoys the "prepare and serve foods" genre (see: Diner Dash) was stunned into utter confusion. Rather than tell you about the game, we've decided to just show you the complete opening in a series of sequential, yet completely nonsensical screen shots that illustrate the combination of awful storytelling and the subsequent poor interface design. It's a drill bit for the brain in game form. Save your money.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
