Like you would have expected, Bella Design comes with a Shop to purchase upgrades; ranging from station upgrades to hire service staff. Apart from the shop, at the end of each level you will also earn a token which can be used to restore and decorate your currently-rundown house into its glorious state. Moreover, one thing that we found to be fairly unique are the Collectibles. In each level, you can also hunt for well-hidden red and golden hearts to add to your customers’ patience level, quite a fun idea.
Bella Design featured 70 levels over 6 different boutiques, along with a couple of special mini-games levels. Fans of this genre might appreciate the challenge level of Bella Design as it can be considerably demanding, especially if you want to earn the Expert medal. Regardless of the high level of difficulty, Bella Design is not frustrating, much less boring. Each boutique theme is very different to each other, even the mini-games at some of the stations are varied – Sugar Games definitely know how to keep us entertained.
Presentation wise, Bella Design is pleasant, but nothing spectacular. The artwork is colorful, girly and cute and appears to be water-color painted; it is delightful yet nothing to rave about. The music is upbeat and poppy, also very nice.
