Pokemon Cafe Mix, now known as Pokemon Cafe ReMix, is a delightful puzzle game that was developed by Genius Sonority for the Nintendo Switch, Android, and iOS. The game was initially released on June 23, 2020, in North America, and on June 24, 2020, in Japan, Europe, and Australia. The game is free-to-start and offers a unique gameplay experience where players can link Pokemon icons together by swirling them around. To link icons, players need to grab a Pokemon icon and drag it next to another icon of the same Pokemon species. Icons will be cleared after they are linked together.
The game progresses through a series of stages, referred to as “orders”, where players serve visiting Pokemon various dishes to their liking. Each order presents a puzzle that players must solve by linking matching Pokemon icons to clear them from the screen. Each puzzle has a set of objectives, so players need to think carefully before making their move. As the cafe menu grows, new recipes bring new ingredients. Players need to stay on the lookout for ingredients appearing on the puzzle board, and try new tactics to clear them all. The cafe is staffed by hard-working Pokemon who are always eager to help. Players can use their special Cafe Skills to help clear the puzzles. The more a player plays, the more the cafe will grow with new areas and upgrades. As players serve yummy drinks and dishes to their Pokemon customers, they build friendships with them. Once a high enough level of friendship with a Pokemon is reached, it will join the cafe staff. The game offers multiple modes to choose from, allowing players to dish out tasty treats in a variety of different ways. Players can recruit specific Pokemon by preparing additional orders, challenge completed orders to earn more stars, work with their Pokemon partners to develop new menu items, and more. The game also features new events, outfits, and gimmicks for players to discover.
