Cake Mania is a game like Virtual Villagers (see the above post).  It gives frequent simple English instructions for actions the player should perform.  In this case, it’s to make sure the right kind of cake is baked and served.

I’ve placed it on the English For Intermediate/Advanced page (though, as in Virtual Villagers, high-beginners can access it).  It’s on the bottom of the Word Games category.

As with Virtual Villagers, I’m on the fence about how effective this type of game could be for English language development.   There are many games like them out there.  I think they might be useful for vocabulary and reading skills.

What do you think?
