    Pizza Tower is a very special 2D platformer that transcends its inspirations and becomes something even greater. It’s a short ride, and it’ll be most appealing to those who are keen to restart levels in an effort to improve their score, but even if that’s not you, there’s a ton to like here. It is one of the most straight up fun and refreshing platformers I’ve played in recent memory, sporting an unforgettably unique art style, excellent animations, immensely rewarding platforming, wonderfully creative level design, a joyful sense of humor, and one of the best soundtracks of the year so far. Move over Wario, Peppino Spaghetti is-a number one now.

    There is frankly no getting away from it. Pizza Tower is a fantastic platformer sporting some great levels, rock-solid gameplay, an amazing soundtrack, and brilliant animation. It quite possibly will be one of the best indie titles to release this year. And could be in the running for game of the year. However, as good as it is it can be repetitive at times and it could be too difficult for some.

    If you're a 2D platforming fan, loved Wario Land and the old Sonic games - this isn't a question of "if" you should play Pizza Tower - Its a question of "when".

    A brilliantly energetic and creative platformer that doesn't just do right by its inspiration Wario Land, but actually surpasses it.

    Pizza Tower is a juicy slice of heart-pounding 2d platformer. Taking the weirder sides from the classic Wario Land series, guiding Peppino Spaghetti through increasingly curious and crazy levels will be one of the most fun experiences of the year. If you're looking for a remedy to the lack of that 1990s flavor in your video games, Pizza Tower will definitely be for you.

    Pizza Tower may be inspired by platformers of yore, but it’s much more than nostalgic fluff. It has sharpened, tuned, evolved, and damn near perfected this odd niche of platforming. It’s the rare homage that is actually better than the things that inspired it, and I think you should give it a try. [Polygon Recommends]

    One of the best 2d platformers in recent history, though heavily inspired by Wario Land 4 it stands on its own with breakneck speed gameplay,One of the best 2d platformers in recent history, though heavily inspired by Wario Land 4 it stands on its own with breakneck speed gameplay, wacky and charming graphics reminiscent of old 90 's cartoons like Ren & Stimpy or Courage the Cowardly Dog and a soundtrack that just keeps on giving. Whether you just want to experience what the game has to offer or dive deep into this pizza pie of completionist goodness, this game has you covered. A definite must buy this year. Full Review »

    This game is incredible and really shakes up the platformer genre and stands out as it's own thing. I love how replayable it is and love it so much
