Ever wanted to own your own pizza restaurant ? Didn’t think so, but after playing this game you might want to change your mind.


In Pizza Tycoon you build your own pizza empire. You start out with a small restaurant and build your way up with several restaurants all over the Western world. Pizza Tycoon takes you to Europe and the Eastern US. There are a about ten different cities in which you can set up shop.


In the beginning you will handle everything from kitchenware to putting together recepies. Actually it’s quite a lot the player have to do before actually opening the first restaurant, that is you have to furnish the place, hire staff, buy a pizza owen and buy supplies.


After that you have to put together some recepies. I think this is the hardest part of the whole game, there are a couple of recepies in the instruction book to help you on your way. But still this process is very demanding on your patience. Each pizza has to go through a jury which rate the pizza.However if you are really into baking and cooking you might like the pizza baking part of the game.


Managing your restaurant can be a pain. You have to keep your customers happy and they can sometimes be really picky. For example they sometimes complain on your décor, sometimes they dislike the prices or the pizzas. Unfourtantly you aren’t the only restaurant, your competiton are knocking on your back door constantly.


To deal with them you can lower prices and start a price war. You can also focus on having a quality pizza which you can’t get anywhere else. There are also more direct ways to handle them, for example by bombs and so on. You can also involve the mafia, but they are a greedy unreliable bunch.


The graphics in Pizza Tycoon are very humorus, the characters usually have some sort of funny face. It’s a very humorous game overall. All of the graphics are in 2D, but it doesn’t really matter because they really communicate the resturant business in a good way.’


I really like Pizza Tycoon and I have always liked it. It’s an old game and it really tests your patience in the beginning, so you have to make sure you have some time for it because when it get started it will be great.
