Welcome to Pizza Hero, the exciting new shoot 'em up roguelite that puts a delicious twist on the genre! In this game, you'll play as a brave pizza who must defend the world from an invasion of enemies.

As you battle your way through the game, you'll have the opportunity to choose from a variety of different toppings that will grant you special abilities. For example, selecting pepperoni will give you a grenade, allowing you to deal splash damage. Or, if you're feeling saucy, you can choose blue cheese to create a pungent parameter around your pizza, damaging any foes that come too close.

Pizza Hero is a swarm survivor, meaning that you'll need to use all of your skills and strategies to take down waves of relentless enemies. With randomly generated levels and power-ups, no two playthroughs are ever the same. Unlock and follow recipes to create an evolution of toppings.

- 18 Damage Toppings
- 8 Passive Spices
- 5 Recipe evolutions
- 16 Upgradable permanent stats
- Auto rotate/firing controls
- 4 procedurally generated worlds
- 50+ achievements
- 10 pets you can rescue

Do you have what it takes to be the Pizza Hero?

I already got this in my steam wishlist

I can't wait for the windows PC version to release. I already got it in my steam wishlist. This game has a huge 90s nostalgia feel to it. At least for me it does. I'm introduced with tons of 90s nostalgia while playing. The music sounds like true 8 bit audio. One song almost sounds straight from the original tmnt NES game. And the style design and color. I like the story with the dog finding this pizza from space. It crash landed and now is defending itself from monsters from being eaten. Along with his new friend max. Max wants you to help find and rescuing rescue his friends. I just hope there are good updates to this game. Each stage needs it's own theme song. And there's got to be perks for extra gold, experience ECT for stages depending on difficulty level of that's added as well. I just see a lot of potential in this game. And right now I'm enjoying it. It's a lot of fun. I paid $1 for no ads. But that doesn't seem to change anything. Buying the revive for $2 and 3 reroll abilities for $2 is a better deal. That eliminates the ads to reroll and revive. That's going to be an awesome release of this game on to PC. I'm definitely expecting more better updates on pc

Overall good, but 2 suggestions…

1. An option for “swipe to move” (meaning, the joystick always follows your finger) would be great. This is the primary control option in VS so players coming from that would appreciate it…
2. When you get “trapped” in a circular arena, perhaps certain weapons should place target priority on portal in the center? If you enter an arena early on, you’re in for a very frustrating time unless you started with mushrooms or a non-targetted weapon. The problem is that you need to circle the portal to avoid the enemies, so it’s unlikely that the nearest enemy will between the player and the portal, making it very difficult to hit the portal with any weapon that targets the nearest enemy.

Hey, in version 0.3.3 we added a dash sensitivity slider along with an option to have a dedicated dash button you can move around based on your preference. Thanks for playing!

The dash

Amazing game, really fun and exciting. My only problem is the dash. I feel like it would be better if there was a second button on the bottom left of the screen that you could tap to dash in the direction you are facing. Because the way it is now, sometimes I will take my finger off to relax and when I tap again I dash even though I didn't mean to. And other times when I try to dash I will mess up and just stop then walk again without dashing. I just feel like it would be more intuitive to have separate button for dashing. You could also have a setting to move the button to bottom right if someone is left handed or just prefers that way.

All in all, its a real fun game and totally worth playing if the dashing mechanic doesn't bother you so give it a try.

Thank you for playing! We're actively exploring the possibility of introducing a toggle for a dedicated dash button.
