Let us present the marvellous world of a Pizza Boy!

A thief has stolen the pizza present! Oh no! You are forced to chase it through levels filled with threats and dangers but to your advantage you can throw bottles of soda. Watch out for evil birds and furious dogs while you collect pizza slices and strawberries in a yummy mix. And don’t forget to keep an eye out for lost kittens on your way ahead. In miraculous surroundings Pizza Boy is a true retro game sensation.



Hurry and get it back before it runs cold!


Features:

# New school retro graphics
The unique graphic design truly is a joy for the eye.
With an arsenal of graphics including well over 50 different objects together with super detailed levels and backgrounds, Pizza Boy's visual presentation truly stands out.

# "Smart touch system"
A brand new "Smart Touch System" was developed to establish completely reliable simulated buttons.

As a result of this invention it will never feels like the game controls are sticky or unresponsive, which can happen on a number of other touch based simulated buttons.

# Music and sound effect
With distinct inspiration from Chiptunes and Electronica the music sounds like your favourite retro game and even better.

7 different tracks and more than 15 sound effects were created to always provide a compelling sound imagery for your gameplay experience, all through the game.

Listen to the soundtrack at:

#The World of Pizza Boy

The world is divided into 3 beautiful themes that you will discover as progressing through the different levels.

There is always something new and exciting to jump on in Pizza Boy, one more unpredictable than the other.

# Over 40 different enemies, obstacles and items

I have to say that this game is surprisingly good.

On load up the first thing I notice is that the screen flips. Most devs take the "cheap" way out by just flipping the graphics which means Iphone users get our Push and SMS notifications upside down but that's not the case with Pizza Boy.

It's one of those little things that I consider a mark of quality.

I've been through the Tutorial and the First Stage so far. Controls are spot on which they need to be on a platformer like this. Aside from the normal running and jumping on enemies you can also throw one of your limited supply of soda bottles. You can collect more by stomping on soda machines (genius) but you'll want to save as many as you can since they add to your level score (which you can tweet or post to facebook)

Each stage requires you make it to the end in a limited time while collecting strawberries (100 get you a 1up), Collecting the letters P-I-Z-Z-A, Collecting slices of pizza, Saving a kitten then returning it to a girl, and Stomping enemies.

So far I've only heard one music track which I really like but I do hope there is a new one as you change worlds

Just played through the tutorial level and I have to agree. The style is retro without feeling dated, the controls are spot on, great framerate and animation, and from the description it sounds line there's plenty of content. A very polished effort, with the potential to be one of the best platformers in the App Store. I'm looking forward to spending some quality time with this one.

@randomisthehero: definitely a Mario feel, but it does have it's own personality as well (love jumping on soda machines to get ammo) and, unlike other attempts at Nintendo vibe, this doesn't feel (so far) like a stripped down homage.

It definitely does. The jump button is even sensitive to how long you press it which allows tiny jumps and high jumps.

Stage 1-3 is even a scrolling level so you get that instant nostalgia factor.

Now that I've passed to world 2 I can also confirm that it has a new track in the background.

If anyone is interested in 2d scrollers or retro inspired games I'd recommend checking it out. But be aware that the game is only 3 worlds long and the devs state that the game is only about 30 minutes long.
