Review by tapeworm
As the creator of Destruere Pizzicato 2 describes it, "you play the role of a young pizza cutter who goes out to seek revenge on a tribe of space pizzas after his father is captured."

The pizza cutter's father is the protagonist of the original Destruere Pizzicato, which was released in 2003. Despite being extremely short and feeling unpolished in some ways, the first game was one of the most unique and amusing titles I had come across in my limited Game Maker experience.

The second game doesn't stray too far from the first, but expands upon the gameplay somewhat with more variety in the level design and the enemies. This time, there is more interaction with other characters (though it usually amounts to talking to them and then jumping on them) and collecting keys for chests and doors.

Two highlights of the game are the character design and the music. The various cartoon pizza-related enemies you encounter are fun to see, and add to the charm of the game's basic premise. Other graphics are not terribly detailed, and I can't help thinking the game could use some more visual detail. The music, by Calpomatt, changes based on different events. It has a lot of variety, and is of higher quality than you normally find in a GM game.

In places, it can be difficult to figure out what you're supposed to do--but not any more than in many commercial games, I suppose. The platform engine gave me some trouble at first, but I found that holding down Space and bouncing made it easier to double-jump effectively, which is essential for success.

Destruere Pizzicato 2 is longer than the first game, but still not very long. Unless you get stuck (as I did), you can easily complete it in one sitting. The game includes a few secrets if you're a completionist, but otherwise is a short and amusing experience.

Well, I'm stuck on the part where you 'make a pizza'
Anyway, the game has a pretty good tecnique, and, as a platform is also Ok, but the graphics... are jus too plain simple, nice game though :-)

Okay... I finally beat the game. But man, was it SHORT! Only one level! One big level, that is...
Well, I'd like to reitterate the fact that this game is, indeed, blunt on objectives. I suppose that makes it challenging or something. Ah, well. So, I noticed this treasure chest that was beyond this series of arrows that made it impossible to get, or so it seemed. Let me guess... that's how you unlock Terrerium, right?
Ergo, I shall have to try again. This time trying to get that chest,

Blast! That gigantic Pizza has annoyed me to the greatest limit! So that's as far as I could go. Help, anyone?
Anyway, the rest of the game was very intuitive and interesting, however you were somewhat blunt on what to do in certain situations. I spent half the game going one way when I really needed to go the other!

Well, I'd prefer a more straightforward style, but that's just my opinion. Still pretty good!

Thanks. I guess you'll just have to wait for the sequel. ;)
(not that I'm planning one or anything)

If you're stuck, look at the topic in the Game Maker forum (you'll have to do a search for it; I put the link as my homepage but it doesn't work). Or you can PM me.
One hint I will give you here: There are invisible blocks. They are easy to 'see' though, as long as you know that they exist.

Excellent game, I'm stuck on the first level though! :-(
