I fell in love with Pizza Tower pretty much as soon as I saw it. This is a game that has a very 90s style to it and that right away appealed to me. This game is a classic 2D platformer and one of the surprise hits of early 2023 for me. It is the kind of game that when you see a gameplay video trailer of, looks rather simple, but there is so much fun in its simplicity that you will end up wanting to play through this over and over again, especially as there is an addictive high score mechanic at play here.

Peppino Taking Matters Into His Own Hands

The developer is not shy about admitting that Pizza Tower is inspired by the Wario Land series and our “hero” Peppino is very similar to Wario. He is fat, Italian and he loves food. He also has a restaurant that is under threat from the Leaning Tower Of Pizza so he is out to destroy it before it destroys his restaurant. It is fun stuff and exactly the kind of premise you could imagine being in a Wario Land game.

Nicktoons, Only On Nick, Nicktoons!

I used to love Nicktoons back in the 90s and Pizza Tower is a game that feels like it could be based on a classic Nickelodeon TV series from the 90s in the same style as something like Rocko’s Modern Life or Ren & Stimpy for example. It is bright, crazy, and completely over the top and I love it. It is also packed with crazy colors, lighting effects, and characters too. It reminds me of the Wario Land Shake game that came out for the Nintendo Wii back in the day. I just love the whole zany style of this game and it appealed to me the moment I saw it.
