At first glance, Freshly Frosted actually gave me a start since I was worried it would be some sort of factory automation and optimization sim… and was then so pleased when it was clear that it is merely a smart mostly casual puzzler. I wouldn’t say it necessarily breaks much new ground, as there are other variations on the formula of needing to carefully create either a single or multiple routes around themselves and/or each other in order to assemble the proper tasty glazed treats. The thing is, I don’t recall any of them being as effective at feeling just challenging enough without pushing too far and too fast, making its pacing encouraging and rewarding at the same time… at least in my experience. Be ready to spend some time staring carefully at the screen and perhaps experimenting a bit as you work out exactly how to snake your production line expertly through your increasingly challenging and limited space, but if you’re a fan of well-made puzzlers it should be a sweet treat of a title.
