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!

It's a cute game, and I like the retro feel, but even with more difficult modes and the ability to unlock different pastries--and thus, different star powers--I got bored pretty quickly. Maybe having a more interesting playing board or having Mai cheer you on if you manage to match four would make things more interesting? Just a thought.

Aah! Mai is indeed very cute! I love the artist's idea!!! <33333
The game is simple to use and hard to master which DEFINITELY is the key to victory!
AND the best part is that there's no "moves" limit. It's perfect!

Amazing game. Very simple, and yet very challenging.

Neat game, but I do wish you got some amount of progress even when you fail. Feels bad when you lost hard mode with only 1 order left, and get nothing out of it.

It's, So kawaii ;D
