ICEE Maker Game is as much of a blatant advertisement as you can get, and also a tease. After all, what’s the best part about making an ICEE? That’s right, consuming it after you’ve assembled just the right mix of Banana, Blue Raspberry, Orange Cream, and Coke. ICEE is a treat intended for your mouth, first and foremost, not just your eyes. Obviously, the steps of feeling the frozen beverage in your hands, and tasting the cool flavors are excluded from this app, making the game perhaps the greatest tease in the App Apes archives.
The graphics range from cartoonish to hyper-realistic, and leave a bad taste in the mouth. The ingredients clash, so while the graphics are not altogether terrible, when everything is together it is terrible.
Besides simply being one large advertisement, ICEE Maker Game also has in-game purchases. We at App Apes usually advocate one or the other, at most, and this app is certainly no exception, in fact it can easily serve as an example of what not to do. On top of this, the activities become tedious fast. In fact, if we wanted to clean the ICEE machine, we’d prefer to get a job where an ICEE machine is present, and clean it for real. At least that way we’d be making money, not losing it with in-game purchases.
In conclusion, ICEE Maker Game is best kept on ice and never thawed in order to play it, unless a trip to get an ICEE is in your near future and you simply want to whet you palate.
