By August 25, 2023Buildbox, Game Showcase

This week’s game spotlight is Pizza Hero by Astro Hound Studios and IndyM Software. It’s a strategic shoot’ em-up roguelite game that adds a tasty twist to the genre. Available for iOS and Android, this new hit built with Buildbox has been climbing the charts. Pizza Hero was recently featured in the app store’s ‘New Games We Love’ section and is currently ranked in the Top 100 strategy games in the U.S.

So, let’s take a closer look at Astro Hound Studios’ Pizza Hero!

Pizza Hero: Escape the Hungry Horde

Are you ready to find out if you have what it takes to save the world? 

In this latest game, developed by Astro Hound Studios and IndyM Software, players are transformed into a flying slice of pizza on a mission to save the world.

Accompanied by your dog Max, you must blast through endless waves of hungry monsters, collect gems and toppings to customize your pizza, and upgrade your firepower. Each type of pizza topping holds its own special ability that will assist you in your quest to stay alive. 

It’s all about having the right ingredients in Pizza Hero. When you customize your slice with pepperoni you can launch grenades, mushrooms will deploy homing missiles, paprika will expand the area of damage during battles, and basil automatically speeds up weapon attacks. The more you collect the more damage you can inflict upon the enemy. 

As you continue to progress further in the game, you can unlock and follow recipes to create new toppings and even accomplish objectives like rescuing cute pet companions. 

The pixelated worlds and power-up toppings in Pizza Hero are randomly generated each time you play, so every battle is unique. It’s a shoot’em up that is more than just your average slice. And with its fun, fast-paced gameplay and addictive action, this strategy shooter is sure to become a favorite.

Pizza Hero is available on iOS and Google Play!
