Pokemon Cafe Mix is a puzzle game. Similar to the icon-connection challenge of Disney Tsum Tsum, you play as Eevee and delivering orders in a cafe by linking Pokemon icons in a ring. It's a low pressure puzzle with a swirl-to-connect interaction that is both accessible and challenging.

Your aim is to collect enough of a particular item by linking it together, to then be able to deliver it to a customer. Some challenges involve clearing extra items. As you progress with successful orders you can upgrade your café to attract more types of Pokémon as staff who help and make the puzzles easier.

In addition to recruiting more Pokémon staff members and growing your collection of menu items, the café itself will expand as you play! Getting new tools or having areas added to your café may even draw in more customers. All the action in Pokémon Café Mix unfolds in a playful art style that brings out the cuteness of your Pokémon pals and patrons. It’s time to become a café owner, solve puzzles, and bring joy to Pokémon patrons.

There is always a current menu-mission on the screen. It is low pressure, although you have a limited time to connect the icons. The controls are simple and don't rely on high accuracy as they are a swirling motion.
