My Sweet Shop: New confectionary game is anything but sweet

When I logged into Ranch Town today, I noticed a new game on the Meteor Games toolbar. My Sweet Shop is a brand new game in beta testing that brings a familiar farming and harvesting mechanic to building a bakery.

At first glance, My Sweet Shop has an appealing aesthetic with a peaceful color palate and crisp interface. When you really look twice, however, the game has an odd top-down camera angle and the game isn't all that fun to play. It's basically Ranch Town, but instead of a ranch, you're in a candy shop. Instead of clicking on stoves and ovens to make your dishes such as Cafe World, you actually have to farm your ingredients and combine them in machines. There is really no difference to this game over Ranch Town, aside from displaying your resulting products on a counter for guests to purchase. My Sweet Shop has a grid that the mouse snaps to while planting and harvesting, and it feels more like a clickable game board than a typical farming game. Personally, I just wasn't a huge fan of the gameplay.
