Pizza Points/Pre-release

From Pizza Tower Wiki


In older demos, combos would give points when killing enemies (rather than at the end of the combo), and would go from 10 to 20, then 40, and finally resting at 80. The timer also lasted 2 seconds. See the Trivia section on the Combo page for more info.

When playing as The Noise, points are replaced with candy and pizzas with desserts on them instead, and playing as Snick turns them all into onion rings. When getting hit, Snick loses all of his points instead of just 50, and if he doesn't have any points left when hit, he dies (because of that, Snick does not get any ranks). In the Peppino's Xmas Break demo, they are changed to Christmas-themed treats and cookies.

Since The Vigilante as a playable character has a health system, getting points also restores his health, with Pizza Toppings restoring 1 HP, Pizza Slices restoring 5 HP, Complete Pizzas restoring 10 HP, and Giant Pizzas restoring HP back to full. When getting hit, The Vigilante's health goes down by 25. If he doesn't have any health left when hit, he dies.

There used to be three extra collectible types: the Pizza Slice, the Complete Pizza, and Big Pizza, giving 25, 100, and 1000 points respectively.

Heat Meter

Heat Meter increases the amount of points the player receives for each Pizza Topping they get:

  • Pizza Toppings can increase up to 20 points
  • Big Pizza Toppings can increase up to 200 points

The Heat Meter also increases the amount of points the player loses when hit by an enemy or hazard, going up to 200 points.


  • Pizza Slices were originally used as health pickups back when the player was meant to have a health bar. They also spun in one place, floating, instead of spinning and moving around on the floor.
    • This idea later came full circle with The Vigilante's health system, since picking up Pizza Slices, as well as any other kind of Pizza Points, heals him.
    • Another health pickup planned for the game were plates of spaghetti and meatballs, which were cut due to not fitting the game's pizza-based themes.
  • Complete Pizzas originally came from Pizza Boxes instead of Toppins.
  • An in-character reason as to why the Noise collects candy and desserts is because he canonically hates pizza.
    • One of The Noise's collectibles is a reference to the infamous gumball-eyed Sonic popsicle often sold at ice cream trucks, except with Snick instead of Sonic.
  • Getting hurt used to cost 100 points instead of 50, while getting a Tower Secret Treasure used to give the player 1000 points (2000 in later demos), instead of 3000.
    • In the Eggplant Build, Tower Secret Treasures gave no points.
  • The second old escape collectible (Banana) was reused in Crust Cove inside breakable blocks and the third one (Bacon) was reused in the secret bacon room in The Pig City.
