As you can see, you need to connect 3 pastries to form a new pastry. The game works on the same principle in all the levels. In the gameplay screen, if you don’t have sufficient ingredients, you can click on any empty tile, and a random ingredient will pop up on your screen. If you have two ingredients of the same type already on your screen, you can drag the ingredient together with the other two ingredients to form a recipe, and feed the cute little giant at the top of the screen. As you complete recipes, you are awarded points for the same as well!

Cooking For Giants Points Awarded

You can see the points being awarded to me in the above screen where the three ingredients are disappearing from the screen. You can see the completed recipes at the top left of the screen, and you can access the pause menu at the top right of the screen by clicking on the pause button. Once you do that, you will be presented with the pause menu of the game which resembles the below screenshot.

If you look to the top right, you can access controls that allow you to go back to the home screen of the app, restart the level or to access the settings of the game. Towards the center of the screen in the pause menu, you will be able to see what combining three ingredients of a particular type will give you. You can consider this as your quick help box. Returning to the main screen of the app, you will be able to see your remaining lives at the top right corner of the screen. These lives are an indication of the number of trials left for you to play the game. More lives can always be purchased with real money, or otherwise, the lives take 25 minutes to recharge.

This sums up the main features of this game!

The verdict:

Cooking For Giants is a really cute and fun game for Windows 8 devices which allows you to create sweet treats for the cute little giants at the top of your screen. Overall, this is a great puzzle game to test your wits and stay sharp at the same time. I really love the game, and it truly deserves a 4 out of 5!
