Before developing Pizza Tower, Pizza Tower Guy has worked on many other games before. The genre, the gameplay, and even the style of sprites varies in each one of them.

Weenie Cop[]

Weenie Cop, also known as Weiners Don't Use Drugs, is an action-platformer game, starring Peter and Mac as main protagonists.

Visual art style[]

The visual art style doesn't look very different from Pizza Tower, besides it using colored outlines, not using a Game Boy Color Wario Land 2's color palette, animations being slower and sprites themselves being smaller, due the game being 4:3, instead of 16:9.

Gameplay[]

The gameplay was mostly inspired by Jazz Jackrabbit games. Pete and Mac's moveset are the same, with their differences only being aesthetic.

The moveset is mostly based on attacking, shooting and dashing. It's also possible to buy upgrades from the shopkeeper to upgrade the attack moves paying with toes and foot collectibles. The player can also collect hot peppers to charge the super move, depending on which attack the player will use, Peter or Mac will either shoot with a giant bullet that shatters into smaller ones or perform a big series of punches for a bit. It's also possible to perform wall jump by jumping into the wall then pressing the jump button again to jump away from it.

The enemies on first two levels are the variations of french fries, wearing black jackets and having different types of sauce as their hair. By modifying the game, it's also possible to see other type of enemies - burgers wearing black bandanas, like steriotypical burglars.

There are only two bosses - tutorial boss, which doesn't attack and can be defeated in one hit, and fryboys boss, being able to throw bombs and summon french fries enemies. The way to defeat him was to deflect the bomb with melee attacks, so it would go back at him, causing him to take damage. Also, he would be able to sometimes deflect the bomb back at the player. Though, the boss fight doesn't work as intended, as deflecting bombs back at the boss doesn't do anything, which makes the fight impossible.

Music[]

During development of the game, Weenie Cop did not have a original soundtrack. Instead, it used tracks, taken from various sources as just placeholders. Though, due to a few bugs, they don't play in the game itself.

    • Breakable Block's sprite was completely reused but with most of the palette changed to fit the game.
    • Peter's design was reused for the Weenie.

    • Spring's mechanic was reused for the Tomato Block.

Pizza Massacre[]

Pizza Massacre is a 2D Resident Evil-like game, starring Peppino.

Visual art style[]

The visual style, unlike Pizza Tower, is more grim and scary, with Peppino being more realistic.

Gameplay[]

The gameplay was supposed to be side-scroller with need to find weapons to kill enemies. Only one video of gameplay exists [2], showcasing one of the weapons - buzz saw, so it's hard to tell how the game would actually play like.

Gallery[]

Trivia[]

  • The development of the game was cancelled due to time consuming of making big sprites and PTG liking only the buzz saw dash attack [3]
    • Later, PTG decided to use the idea of the buzz saw dash attack to emulate Wario Land 4 engine and simpling the sprites. Thus, the development of Pizza Tower started.
  • Some of the sprites were posted by PTG on his Tumblr page and then later in Pizza Tower Discord.

Pizza Horror[]

Pizza Horror is a RPG-like game, made in RPG Maker and inspired by Earthbound.

Visual art style[]

The visual style here is pretty much the same as for Pizza Massacre.

Gameplay[]

The gameplay was supposed to be pretty similar to Earthbound, except with having more interactions in overworld map and having 2D sections, similar to LISA, in-between.

Peppino's sprites[]

Enemies' sprites[]

Miscellaneous[]

Trivia[]

  • The reason of cancellation of development of the game was due to RPG Maker's limitations in 2D sprites.
    • The idea of the 2D sections was later implemented in Pizza Massacre.
  • The sprites were posted by PTG in Pizza Tower Discord.

Monkey game[]

Monkey game is an arcade-like game about monkeys stealing treasures and escaping from the hunters.

Visual art style[]

The visual art style is heavily different from any other PTG's games, being more simplistic.

Gameplay[]

Since not a single footage of the game was provided, the only way to find out about how the game was supposed to be played by PTG's description of it:

"it was an arcade like game where you play as a monkey stealing treasure and you have to avoid 4 hunters

brandon, rambo, the gun guy and the dog

and they would all have their own behavior"
— Pizza Tower Guy.

Clown game[]

Clown game is a RPG Maker game that was developped during the development of Pizza Tower. Not much known about it, since there's only one video of test build [4] exists.

Visual art style[]

The visual art style is similar to Pizza Tower's art style.

Gameplay[]

As seen from the gameplay video, it possibly could be a puzzle involving changing characters, each having their different abilities, but that is not confirmed.

Trivia[]

  • It is unknown why the development of the game was unfinished. Possible reason to that either PTG being interested in making Pizza Tower more or just being an idea and it wasn't supposed to be proceeded anywhere else.
