So excited!!!!

What do you think the story will be about?! Paige looks sick! :( Comment below!

Fabulous - Angela's Sweet Revenge

Yes, I looove time management games. Time Management games are games in which you perform a series of tasks or processes as quickly as possible e.g. manage/cook/serve at a restaurant, stock/run a supermarket, babysit, manage a hotel, build/decorate houses. When I finish a TMG I love, I Google trying to find more like it. Also, when I say 'finish', I mean get the gold/expert score on every single level!

Today's game is...

Fabulous - Angela's Sweet Revenge Platinum Edition
Release Date: 9/7/15

The 'Delicious' Series is one of my all time favourite series. Each game adds to the story of Emily, with her family and friends. And as a new instalment is added, the gaming only gets better! This is the first 'spin-off' game, starring Emily's sister Angela! So far this is just a mini-game, but GameHouse are creating a full game :)

I will be posting more about Emily/Delicious games - visit my navigation page, or scroll through my Emily posts here.

After a shotgun Vegas wedding, Angela decides it’s time to follow her dreams. She moves to the Big Apple and starts her career as a fashion designer. Angela couldn’t be any happier, until one day she discovers her husband's treacherous secret! Can she control her impulses? Find out in Fabulous - Angela's Sweet Revenge!

* Enjoy a bitingly fresh mini-game for fashion addicts
* Help Angela make her customers look their prettiest in beautiful outfits
* Get swept away by a compelling story filled with love and friendship
* Discover 4 exciting levels in a divine fashion boutique in the Big Apple

The Basics
Simply: 1) Find the items the customers want by clicking on the corresponding icons. 2) When you've found the items needed, take them to the customer by clicking on her. 3) Accept payment by clicking on the cash register. 4) Sometimes you have to combine two items to get the right products. 5) Prevent your products from running out of stock by clicking on your designs. 6) Clean fitting rooms so new customers can use them. 7) Remember, customers become impatient when they have to wait too long. 8) Angry customers will leave and drop their clothes. You need to clean them up.

Quick tip: Make combos by letting multiple customers pay in a row!

Game Modes
Choose whether to play in Beginner, Normal, or Advanced mode.

Level completion
This is a mini-game, with only four levels. Each level can be completed to one, two, or three stars. You will definitely need to go for combos to make it to three stars.

Annnnnd, so happy to see there is a mini-mouse game (just like in Delicious)!! Check you have found the mouse for each day by looking at the Calendar/level summary page.

The game starts with a very upset Angela, complete with a bandaged ankle. She's on the phone to her big sister, Emily. What on EARTH has happened?! Her three best friends arrive for a night out and wonder why Angela isn't ready... and why is her stuff in boxes?!! :(

Uh-oh what happened with her boss Yum-Mee?!...

The Game

"Fabulous Design"
First thing we have to do is pick a new design for Angela to make :)

I picked the third dress. Angela makes it, and it looks amazing... until Yum-Mee cuts off the bottom, ruining it :(

And could Jimmy have forgotten their anniversary?! He tells Angela he's got a surprise. When he leaves he drops his phone. Angela gives it back straight away, but Jimmy looks nervous...

If you've played Delicious/Emily games before, then you'll know the format. Tip: click on the dress design to make more - you can make three in advance. And don't forget to the tidy/clean the dressing room so the next person can use it.

Jimmy's surprise is not so great...

The devil on her shoulder tells her that her dreams can't be built on suspicions (Jimmy/Yum-Mee)

I think it's adorable that the level summary/Calendar is like a Facebook page:

A customer, Sally, tells Angela that her husband cheated on her with a 21 year old secretary! When Jimmy arrives to give Yum-Mee another ride home, Angela decides to use 'the coffee trick' - spill coffee on him, so she can swipe his phone to check his messages. Her conscience pipes up again - will Angela check Jimmy's phone, or trust him?!

We add another design to the store: a top. Plus there is an extra top and accessory in stock. Angela's serving tray enlarges to four item spots.

There is a bonus challenge today, which is cool! Pick up Jimmy's phone to check his messages four times during the level.

Sally comments, as long as he isn't taking her "all the way home" hehe... Unfortunately the next text message from Yum-Mee to Jimmy thanks him for doing just that! Her conscience tells her that it is just an innocent ride home... or is it more?!

Sally is in the store again. She asks Angela if she confronted Jimmy last night... but it turns out Jimmy didn't come home from poker! Angela asks Yum-Mee if she's seen Jimmy... but the subject gets changed quickly when Yum-Mee announces there is a VIP event tomorrow!

A third design is added to the store: a skirt. Plus two new tops and a belt are in stock (the top on the mannequin is worn with the belt). Angela's tray enlarges to five spots.

The extra challenge today is to complete four things on Yum-Mee's list (unpacking boxes, and setting things up for the event).

Jimmy stops by to tell Angela he's finishing his poker game tonight (he would've called her last night but it was late... and he can't seem to find his phone hehe).

Angela decides to text Yum-Mee from Jimmy's phone, and see if she takes the bait... She does :(

Angela's going to get even... She calls Sally to ask for a favour...

The day starts with Angela calling Yum-Mee's stylist, Wendy, telling her VIP Event is cancelled! When Yum-Mee arrives, Angela tells her that Wendy called in sick... ! Sally arrives to give Angela some creme, lotion and... bird seed?! Uh-oh!

Angela promptly gives Yum-Mee and creme (saying it's conditioner for her hair) and lotion (for her legs). Yum-Mee thanks her, saying she won't forget it...

Angela waits until Jimmy arrives and heads out the back, before putting bird seed all over his car!

A fur is added to the store: this goes with the top/belt combo, along with a second bag.

The extra challenge is to bring Yum-Mee lotions and a hair dryer whenever Yum-Mee calls. This needs to be done six times. Yum-Mee is in one of the changing rooms, which means there is only one free for customers today.

Angela certainly gets her revenge...

Leaving Yum-Mee bald and hairy-legged, Angela dumps Jimmy! She hurts her ankle kicking him, but the handsome police officer gives her a lift home...

So why is Angela so upset when telling her friends the story? She's quit her job, left her husband, ruined her high-heels, and...

Angela's mouse:

Verdict: It was no Emily/Delicious game, but it's just finding its feet. I think the extended game could be fun - I do want to find out what happens to Angela. Plus I think GameHouse will tweak fonts and design for the full release, so it looks as slick as a Delicious game.
