♫ Pizza Titan Ultra, fresh and tasty, Pizza Titan Ultra, pizza for justice ♩♫
How many games come with a sing-along song about pizza and robots? Pizza Titan Ultra does, and it’s amazing. This is the first thing that greets you upon loading up Pizza Titan Ultra and I enjoyed every minute of it. Let me just start by saying that this game is ridiculous, but it’s ridiculously fun and hilarious. What more should we expect from Breakfall, the developer of STARWHAL? This is like a fever dream if Optimus Prime got possessed by one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The core of the game has you running around all sorts of terrain and cities while a timer ticks down. When the timer reaches zero, the government thinks you’re just running around smashing buildings instead of doing your job, so it’s game over. All of the areas are loaded to the brim with cash, time boosters and robot chargers. If the timer wasn’t bad enough, you also have the forces of Cheezborg to worry about. Yes, I know that name is amazing. Cheezborg was defeated by you, Pizza Titan Ultra, long ago, but his evil forces remain. As you deliver more pizzas, Cheezborg sends out tanks, choppers and other things to kill your groove.
There are loads of different parts to purchase in the garage. The game does take some obvious inspiration from other famous robot-themed stuff, much to my delight. You can repaint your Pizza Titan Ultra to any color you like and from what I could tell, customization is a big focus. I expect to see more added changes as the game fully develops. Oh, and as you unlock more customization parts, your robot gains new powers like a chest laser and shield! Give me a laser sword… please?
Pizza Titan Ultra has an interesting future and it’s one that I am definitely invested in. There is plenty to bite into here and I can’t wait to see what else the developer adds to the game. If you enjoyed games like Lovely Planet, Rampage or just time-attack games in general, you’re going to love Pizza Titan Ultra. It’s a delightful game which doesn’t take itself too seriously and has fun poking at pop-culture. Plus it has giant robots delivering pizza! What more do you want?
