Pizza Hero is a shoot ’em up roguelite that puts a delicious twist on the genre. In this game, you’ll play as a brave pizza who must defend the world from an invasion of enemies.

As you battle your way through the game, you’ll have the opportunity to choose from a variety of different toppings that will grant you special abilities. For example, selecting pepperoni will give you a grenade, allowing you to deal splash damage. Or, if you’re feeling saucy, you can choose blue cheese to create a pungent parameter around your pizza, damaging any foes that come too close.

Pizza Hero is a swarm survivor, meaning that you’ll need to use all of your skills and strategies to take down waves of relentless enemies. With randomly generated levels and power-ups, no two playthroughs are ever the same. Unlock and follow recipes to create an evolution of toppings.
