Pizza Tower is a quirky 2D platformer game inspired by the Wario Land series, that prioritizes movement, exploration, and score attack. It features a highly stylized pixel art style inspired by the 90s cartoons, and an energetic soundtrack to match. The game follows Peppino Spaghetti, a surprisingly agile and powerful Italian chef, as he embarks on a mission to destroy the Pizza Tower new game and save his restaurant from annihilation.

As Peppino, players can explore up to five floors of the tower, fight off monsters, and destroy everything in their path. The game also offers alternate characters like Gustavo to play as, each with their unique abilities. The game's unusual platformer formula and quirky characters and animations, combined with its energetic soundtrack, makes it a fun and entertaining experience.

In terms of gameplay, Pizza Tower for PC offers a simple loop of going into a level, finding the end-of-level pillar, and making it back to the start before time runs out, all the while collecting power-ups, secrets, and other collectibles. The game's controls are tight, responsive, and provide a great experience for speedrunners.

Graphically, Pizza Tower takes the weirdness of Wario Land and amplifies it, with characters that are highly expressive and have a range of strange animations. The game's art style is charming, and the attention to detail in the animations is impressive.

  • Engaging gameplay
  • Excellent game design
  • Thrilling boss battles
  • Challenging but fair and rewarding experience
  • Stellar soundtrack, particularly the song "It's Pizza Time!"
  • Impressive animation
  • Adorable art style
  • Unique abilities to explore
  • Likable characters like Peppino and Gustavo
  • Fast load times
  • Convenient option to quickly restart levels
  • No presence of Denuvo
  • Optimal performance on average computers
  • Limited level count, but game length is well balanced
  • Higher than average price point ($20), compared to the game's content
  • Resuming progress from previous session can be difficult, requiring a full playthrough from the start
  • No V-sync, causing screen tearing issues on high refresh rate monitors like 144Hz.
System Requirements
  • OS: Windows 11, 10, 8 or 7 (64bit)
  • Processor: Intel or AMD Dual Core CPU
  • Memory: 512 MB RAM
  • Graphics: GeForce GT 1030 (2 GB) or equivalent
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Storage: 300 MB available space
However, the game is priced a little steep at $20, and the lack of V-sync can lead to screen tearing for 144hz monitors. The game also lacks a feature to continue from where players left off, requiring players to run all the way back to their previous position when they restart the game. Despite these minor cons, Pizza Tower for Windows PC is a well-designed game that offers a fun and entertaining experience.

Overall, Pizza Tower is a highly recommended game for those looking for a classic 2D platformer. The game's fast-paced gameplay, tight controls, and quirky art style make it a must-play for fans of old Nickelodeon shows like Ren & Stimpy and Rocko's Modern Life.
