Oh, hi there. Didn't see you. We've got a new game up on Newgrounds, and this is it. It's called Pizza City, produced by Adult Swim Games and developed by the guys at Pixeljam. You may see a blank gray screen for a few seconds when the game first loads. This is normal and should only last a few seconds. Unless you're kicking the 2800 baud to load your Internet. Then it might take longer.

Quick synopsis: Uncle Tony's got a new delivery boy-you. In Pizza City you're the pie jockey, shuttling pizzas from Tony's all over an expansive cityscape filled with colorful characters. Do well and you can upgrade your car and get the pies out faster.

And some instructions:

You begin at the pizzeria. Select orders on the map by clicking them with the mouse or by highlighting them using the arrow keys and pressing enter to accept. Click "Exit" with the mouse or highlight it with the arrow keys and press enter to accept to back out of the pizzeria.

In your car, use the arrow keys (or the W, A, S, D keys) to accelerate in a given direction.

The radar in the upper right corner of the screen will help you find deliveries. Drive toward the colored circles (green, yellow and red indicate customer satisfaction). Circles may start at the edge of the radar screen but will get larger/pop up on the radar as you get closer.

Other things on the radar - Tony's Pizza, indicated by a "T" icon; and the nearest Dino Gas stations, indicated by the dinosaur icons. After you have completed all the accepted deliveries, return to Tony's to get more. If you're running low on gas, fill up at a Dino Gas station.

X or shift - Handbrake (for when you absolutely have to stop)

M - Full-screen map

V - Toggles audio

Tab - Toggles the in-game HUD on and off

R - From pause screen, restarts game.

S - From pizzeria, saves your current game in the currently selected slot.

Buy new cars from Sal's (just south of the pizzeria) with the money you earn pie-driving.

Tips:

Don't run over Pedestrians. If you knick too many the cops will give chase.

DO run over clowns, mimes and burglars for bonus points.

Larger cars may be quick but they'll damage your pizza payload quickly.

And that's it! Hope you like it.

Very fun!

Not such an original idea, but made really well, and one of the best I've seen on NG.

The graphics over here are great for pixel art, and were very well done. There were just some things that needed more detail, for example, the grass which is just a big rectangle of just one shade of green. You should use a bright and slightly darker shade of green to make it look more like grass and less like a green rectangle. The animation wasn't perfect, but not bad for pixels.

The concept wasn't massively original, but still, one of the better pizza games out there. I liked that there were different things other than just delivering pizzas like the mini-quests, cop chase, buying new cars, killing mimes, clowns and robbers, and the totally random things like animals ordering pizzas and Santa popping out of the trash yelling 'Merry Xmas!'. I think there should be more landmarks, like, as S313 suggested, a place where to paint your car, and maybe more shops with better cars, shops selling items like the nitro, and maybe upgrades to your current car like more storage for the pizzas, more handling, etc, along with buying new cars. Still, the city's really big as well, so it's always fun exploring and killing pedestrians.

The music was perfect with this game, and outstandingly varied. My only complaint here is that the sound effects need to be varied a little more, like maybe the tires screeching when you break or when you do a sharp turn, pedestrians yelling when you run over them and the police siren when the chase starts.

Well, it's one of the best of its kind with very few and tiny problems. Fix those and you have a perfect game. Keep it up ^^.

I like it.

It's not bad, nothing special but a good time-waster. Except my HUD suddenly disappeared, so I never really know when I need to gas up. So...kind of a problem.

this game isn't anything special, for me its not fast enough and the point was well pointless, and that's about it though i did like running people over... don't judge me. at least the coding was nice

I am the Lord of all Deliveries!

Great game, finished all side- quest, bought all cars even police car, and delivered over 500 pizzas. 2 suggestions, everyone else shouldn't be a maniac by driving badly and walking everywhere. Also there could have been a place to paint your car a different color. I'll end with a question, is there a code that makes your pizzas invincible? If so PM me!
