However, numbers are not for everyone which is why cupcakes are a nice and pleasant alternative. It can also be more effective for those who are more visual-oriented. It's basically a matching game where you have to move creatively in order to make matches. The curiosity of just how many cupcakes are on the list and how far you can go down it before having to look.

The controls are used to slide all the cupcake tiles across a 4x4 grid. When you press to slide, all the tiles on the grid will slide together. Tiles will only slide as far as they can until they hit the border or another tile. Tiles with the same cupcake on them will combine into one and every time you slide, a new tile will appear in random free space. The tile that appears will always be a Vanilla Birthday cupcake, the first on the list. The objective is to keep combining cupcakes until you end up with a Rainbow cupcake. The game ends if the grid fills up with no available moves left to make.
