List of level assets

From Pizza Tower Wiki

I'll deal with it.

This article does not meet the wiki's guidelines.
You can the wiki help by editing it.
Reason: A couple of things:

  • Instead of calling them level assets, we're just calling them objects or blocks now. This page should eventually reflect that.
  • Not everything listed here should be considered a "level asset."
    • Some listed here are enemies. Update their pages with the appropriate template if needed.
    • Most should be listed as an object or a block.
  • Most Images here have been renamed to something else, and should be changed.
  • The Weapon Machine is named wrong, and for some reason uses a screenshot instead of a sprite-rip?

This is a page listing every level asset that has been in Pizza Tower.
