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!

Once you learn how to learn the mechanics, it becomes quite fun and addictive. It's a very cute game that requires plenty of thinking. Also Mai-chan is cute :3

I like it, but the *I'm stuffed* and *triple digits* medals wont unlock for me which leaves a bitter taste when I dedicated time to them :c

Update- medals fixed ^__^

I really like this game, but every time I played it my medals didn't work (I played in early 2019 and now this year)

Krystman responds:

Medals are fixed now. If you still have your savegame they should all unlock when you load up the game. Thank you for the feedback!

Eh it was okay, sometimes it would get confusing and really hard to play and the lettering was pretty hard to read. Other than that I think it was okay.

It's an extremely addictive puzzler with a fantastic art style. Its so Cayooote!!
