- "If you thought the Chronos quest puzzle was hard and annoying because some people fail to do it, get ready for King Cake's quest puzzle"
King Cherrycake's Quest is a set of puzzles that lay in wait, protecting the kingdom of the cake. This may or may not be hard and dangerous, depending on your level of maturity in R2DA.
Survivors should take a moment and think about why King Cherrycake chose to build numerous puzzles to make his kingdom difficult to access.
Perhaps he is simply a peaceful monarch, seeking to protect his loyal subjects and people from the survivors down below, who seemingly never ever give up on tearing things to shreds, be it one-of-a-kind animals or sentient pumpkins. Perhaps, deep down, he fears the survivors. He fears their weapons, their tenacity, their violence. Perhaps these puzzles are simply his last defence.
Or, perhaps... There aren't any other reasons, are there?
But it cannot be right. The cake is evil, his minions are evil, everything about him is evil. He's powerful, all-powerful, a threat to everyone, just another foe the survivors have to deal with. And when he's defeated, like always, they'll be rewarded with treasure, treasure beyond imagination, treasure that spawns from thin air, certainly not stolen from the pillaged area the foe inhabited. The puzzles are there to stop the survivors from vanquishing the evil cake, to inhibit their peacekeeping. So the survivors believe.

- No Fame is awarded if the keys have become free.
- 2 Regular Chests which may contain:

- You probably need the Tactical II vest or Scout armor to give some bonus stamina, or a stamina boosting item such as the Candy Cane or Blueberry Splush, for The Staircase.
- Try to land on the next cloud in Obstacle 1 first time, as failing will lead to fall damage.
- If you are person that will occasionally fall off obstacles, the Parasol, Cakepack or Duck Mount are recommended.
- The RPG, Tri-Blaster or M202 are recommended for the battle scene to clear out the initial mobs.
- Constant movement is recommended for the battle scene as the Cannon Clouds will destroy the battle arena platform.
- Take time on the Key and Push Puzzle.
- Touch the middle part of the key to interact with the Key Puzzle.
- If you take a while or screw up, it is likely that other players will unkey you.
- It is reminded that the Push Puzzle changes so you cannot predict what puzzle will appear.
- While in the Push Puzzle you cannot jump or go through any solid blocks. There is also a 60-second timer to complete the puzzle. If you fail to complete this in the time limit, you will be killed.
- If you accidentally make the Push Puzzle unsolvable, you will die.
- Once the Push Puzzle is done, you have around five seconds to get onto the Flying Ship.
- Reload whenever you can when it comes to the battle. The Ammo Stations can be destroyed by the Cannon Cloud.
- There is a star in Obstacle 1 whereby if you touch it, you get 1 Fame. However, only one player can take it.
- Only 4 people can get on the spinning flower at a time. Don't fight for the spots or you might fall to your doom.
- Focus on the Cannon Cloud, they are a much bigger threat than the other two.
- If your graphic quality is good, you can track the shadows of the Cake Turrets spawning.
