Mai-Chan's Sweet Buns is a cute puzzle game about pastries. Our goal is to help Mai-Chan serve her sweet buns to customers at her bakery.

- Arrow keys: Move Cursor
- X or M or V: (X) Button. Confirm. Serve pastry.
- Z or N or C: (O) Button. Cancel. Turn cursor.
- Enter: Menu

The 4 cards at the bottom of the screen represent the orders of the customers. Our task is to find and select a line of pastries on the board that matches one of the cards. We can select vertical or horizontal lines. But it needs to be an uniterrupted line of the same pastry

We can only serve lines of pastries that perfectly match one of the cards. If we ever get stuck, we can look into the Star Box to activate special powers. Special powers cost stars. We can gain more stars by aligning 4 of the same pastry in a row.

We lose the game if we get stuck and run out of stars. But if we manage to serve all of the order cards in the deck, we win!

I like that the game essentially has a Game Boy motif to it: pixel graphics, limited palette, simple controls. I do feel like it's a little too luck based at times for me to fully enjoy it, because you'll end up with a bad hand or a bad board. Still I love how it looks and it's a fun way to kill time for 10 minutes.

it's so cute and i can't stop playing

Not too bad. It is difficult and yet addictive to try completing the level to unlock more pastries, fun game. :D

Sweet little game! I found it a little difficult, but using some strategy helped me overcome a match. Great work. Also love the cute artstyle!

Ps: after I learned I can turn the cursor to make vertical matches, it became much easier/more enjoyable. But that was not something the game did a great job teaching me how to do. Maybe it could be better shown in the tutorial.

not the best controls, but a fun game none the less
