Mamma Mia! Who knew making pizza could be so challenging? Armed with the sharpest of knives, Luigi the baker is tasked with chopping and slicing an endless column of delicious pizza to feed the villagers; who apparently just witnessed a zombie attack resulting in insatiable hunger pangs that can only be satisfied with pepperoni, mushrooms, peppers and lashings of melted cheese.
Luigi may have been a little over-generous with the cheese however, as huge goops of the stuff are spilling over the sides and must be avoided at all costs. Tapping the left or right of the screen causes Luigi to switch sides and chop away at the looming tower of pizza while avoiding the extra cheese as it approaches from above.
It's a simple gameplay mechanic that we've seen in other mobile games, but fans of the genre will be pleased to know that Luigi The Baker for iOS and Android is every bit as fun and addictive as you might expect, requiring fast reactions and dexterity to get a high score, and if you score highly enough, you can unlock an extra character to chop away with.
The pizza only moves down each time you chop, but that doesn't mean you have much time to think, as the timer bar depletes while you wait, encouraging you to chop as quickly as you can. This creates plenty of challenge while allowing you to find your own pace.
The game is nicely presented with a cartoon-style background and hunks of pizza flying off in all directions, and while the interface is kept as simple as possible, everything is well polished and easy on the eye, even if the game itself is not so easy on the thumbs.
Luigi The Baker Goes Chopping Mad! is a fun and addictive way to kill some time on your iOS or Android device, and it's well worth a download. Grab it and start chopping!
