Evil Robots vs. Adorable Furballs in the Take the Cake trailer.

The new and adorable platformer Take the Cake is now available in the Windows Store, Itch.io, and Steam. Check out a trailer for it below along with a number of screenshots.

The game was developed by Czech studio EbenitTake the Cake will put your puzzle-solving skills to the test with lighthearted, physics-driven gameplay and a minimalist art style that never gets in the way of the action.

In Take the Cake, Frank the Friendly Furball is on a mission to track down his stolen cake. Playing as Frank, you’ll face off against nasty robots and menacing bosses as you progress through five mysterious environments – and 27 levels – by changing Frank’s color and exploiting gravity to your advantage. Stay alive by avoiding falls, getting hit by sharp spikes … or becoming a snack. If all else fails, you can always pick up a handmade rocket to even the odds!


When I first had the idea for Take the Cake, I wanted to make a game that engaged the player’s critical thinking skills without requiring a ton of exposition or written instructions. Everything is communicated visually – from basic gameplay mechanics to the story itself,” says Martin Kuneš, founder of Ebenit. “Gameplay-wise, I made sure to include enough variety to allow for hours and hours of fun. I even threw in few boss fights … I mean, surprises along the way 🙂
