What IS Pizza Tower?
Pizza Tower is an upcoming fast paced score based 2D Platformer filled with wacky animation inspired by your favorite 90s cartoons, crazy characters, and some of the grooviest tunes you'll ever hear! A crazed, possibly mentally ill balding italian cook by the name of Peppino Spaghetti is trying to destroy a nearby Pizza Tower which threatens to anihilate his business! He rampages across the tower's 5 floors, collecting toppings, meeting new foes and friends in his mad dash to crumble the tower down to a giant greasy, cheesy pile of rubble.
....and many more, found between the walls of the Pizza Tower!
Pizza Tower at its core is a faster, score based Wario Land where the goal is to gain as many Pizza Points as possible, knock off the Pillar John holding up every level, and then make a mad dash to the exit before the timer runs out!
This isn't easy though, as there's a variety of enemies and obstacles blocking your way and preventing destroying this tower from being too easy.
From small fry like Cheeseslimes
to annoying kickers like Pepperoni Goblins
and then there's just those Stupid Rats that sit around and do nothing.
So how are you supposed to get through these treacherous levels? Well...
The thing about Peppino... is that he's fast.
Like, REALLY fast.
His movement is tailored specifically to gaining more speed and maintaining it, with moves such as the Roll, Dive, Super Jump, and the biggest one... the Dash!
This is what enables the fat Italian to go at such ludicrous speeds. He cycles through various tiers of of this dash the faster you go, and the more speed you gain the more moves become available to you. This is the gameplay mechanic that sets it apart from Wario Land, since because of this not only do you have the exploration and puzzle platforming that defined those games but also the sheer speed that made other platformers of the time like Sonic such a blast to play, the distinctive gameplay loop of gaining speed, and then using that speed for various purposes like exploration and completion.
He's also got quite a few transformations as well which can be activated depending on the scenario, like how he becomes a Ball
When you string cheese moves together elegantly in the level design, you can perform crazy runs and overall just become a rampaging machine of destruction, unstoppable to any foe that even had the misfortune of standing in your way.
Oh yeah, the levels! Pizza Tower's creativity doesn't just end at its premise, character designs, animation, gimmicks, gameplay, and music. It continues even into the levels!
From a trip into the cheesy moon...
to a medieval pizza castle...
and a bloody, saucy bone filled dungeon for all the freaks who wanted bones in their Pizza.
There's a great amount of variety to go around! And a lot of it too, the game has over 2 dozen levels.
