First impressions:

Simple gameplay.

Awesome-looking art style.

Free.

Fun.

Challenging.

Game Center Leaderboards.

No IAPs.

All of these points = insta-get.

Guaranteed entertainment.

I decided to list my points this way in celebration of the minimal yet highly effective style of this game. If it comes off as shill, I apologize, but IT'S JUST THAT GOOD.

Granted, there isn't much beyond the simple high-scoring mechanic, so this is something that is meant to be enjoyed in bursts. I can easily see people burning themselves out with play sessions longer than an hour or so, since the simplicity threatens to devolve into repetition. However, this is great for pick-up-and-play three-minute sessions and is a good way to whittle away time when nothing else is going on.

If you like arcade games, you're gonna love this game.

If you like simple, easy-to-understand games that are a challenge to master, you're gonna love this game.

If you like kooky art styles in conjunction with a bonkers barely-there story, you're gonna love this game.

If you don't like any of the above, it goes without saying that you might want to try it anyway BECAUSE IT'S FREE. No harm, no foul, no fuss.

Worth 5/5 stars.

Sincerely,

Mr. Album

"Cool Pizza is a spastic screen-masher .."

careful now, the UKs PC board will be on that! quote from wiki:

"The current understanding of the word is well-illustrated by a BBC survey in 2003, which found that "spastic" was the second most offensive term in the UK"

intriguing game, badly worded blurb imho.

Heard about this game on a Twitter post by Simon from Simogo. To my surprise it was free. Absolutely a must-download. A quirky game that is fun. And again...free. Stop reading this and download it.
