App description: The Veggie Villains have struck again! All bakeries across the Isla Cocoa are reporting their Donut supplies missing. Theres only one man for the job call Captain CupCake!

Guide Captain CupCake through the delicious levels to retrieve the missing Donuts. Gather the Donuts against the clock, whilst fighting off or outwitting the Veggie Villains. Use the helpful bouncy jellies to leap from platform to platform and grab bonus power-ups to beat all the levels.

Along the way youll have to make a choice... do you play against the clock and collect all the donuts in the quickest time to earn a 3 star rating on every level, or do you chase after the golden donuts in the order on each level to build up the multiplier and get the best scores? Challenge yourself to achieve both!

The game includes dozens of levels across several scrumptious zones, each with their own tasty confectionary theme and a new Veggie Villain:

Tutorial Tours
5 levels

Toffee Mountain
24 levels
Veggie Villain: Colonel Carrot

Ice Cream Valley
24 levels complete Toffee Mountain with 48+ stars to unlock!

Great little platform game featuring Bananaman, sorry Captain Cupcake ! Think we need more single screen platformers on iOS.

Only minor note is that it crashed once on the high score screen. Would like to have a seperate jump button but isnt too bad pressing left/right together. But would prefer a Mario left/right /jump type of buttons to use

But nice game, i'll probably get the other levels for sure

Thanks for the feedback. Sorry it's not obvious, but you can have left/right and jump controls separately, just go into Options and switch default controls to off!

Any more suggestions, just keep em coming!

Just a thought, if you prefer left right and jump separately, please post here and let us know. We can always get the developer to make that the default control mechanism!

Following on from some of your feedback, the developer is going to make some changes to the game including adding a re-do button for each level to make it easier to try for 3 stars in each. A little extra time will be added for harder levels, and we may make the unlock for the second play zone easier (average of 2 stars instead of 2.5). If you've been playing Captain CupCake and have additional suggestions to improve it, now's the time to speak up!

The update to Captain CupCake and the Donut Disaster is now live in the App Store.

The dev has taken on board lots of feedback and he's made these changes:

Made it easier to replay a level by placing a button on the completed level screen.
Unlocking Ice Cream Valley now only requires an average of 2 stars in Toffee Mountain.
Adjustment to middle platform in Level 3 of Toffee Mountain to stop players getting stuck.
5 seconds added to every level to make it easier to get more stars.
Tutorial updated to make it clear accumulated scores are lost when you replay a level to get more stars.
Time required for 3 stars added to start statistic screen.

And it's still free!!!
