Play OverviewPlay Overview

Cookies Must Die (2020) is a platform game where you fight mutant cookies. Your character is a genetically modified superhuman who now, thanks to the scientists, has the ability to hurl itself across the lab facility, aiming at foes and avoiding obstacles.

Unlike other platform games, you control your character by dragging a finger on the touch screen to repeatedly aim and throw yourself around. As the game progresses you will face different types of confectionary which is increasingly difficult to defeat. Cookies Must Die is simplistic in concept but satisfying in its difficulty, ideal for pre-teens to play on their phones and other mobile devices.

It does feature adverts and therefore requires an internet connection to work.

Our examiner, Ellen Robertson, first checked Cookies Must Die 3 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 3 weeks ago.
