Now I have played plenty of strange and surreal games on my Android device, but Turtle Pizza Jump is my newest contender for the strangest game available on Google Play! Now that is saying a lot, particularly having regard to a store full of angry birds, crazy pigs, subway surfers, and many more strange and bizarre gaming combinations!
So how is Turtle Pizza Jump so bizarre? Well, catch this - it is about a turtle (think a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle) who jumps from hovering pizza's to pizza, eating slices along the way, whilst in the background are some of the most bizarre images to ever surface from the dark depths of the web - such as cat's poking their heads through slices of pizza or super close ups of pugs eating pizza.
Bizzare? Absolutely. But is it any good to actually play? Surprisingly - the answer is yes! The gameplay sees you take control of your warrior turtle , jumping from rotating pizza slice to slice. As you land on a pizza yoyr turtle will cling to the outside of it as it spins in a circle. The object is then to press the jump button (single tap) at just the right time to fly through the most slices of pizza on your way to the next wheel.
The single jump feature in this game is similar to that of other rotating jumpers (yes, I just invented a term for a whole new style of gameplay), but Turtle Pizza Jump is made unique by the ability to jump backwards in the direction you came from, and to double jump. This really frees up the gameplay! The object is to get a high score, achieved quite simply by eating the most pizza!
All in all, this is a really great android app. It looks bizarre (but great), has excellent sounds, is responsive and is a real joy for gamers of all ages. Check it out!
In the words of the developer:
Jump your warrior turtle to a full belly of pizza and soda blissful happiness. This game is made to entertain smaller children and adults alike. Includes funny backgrounds of different animals enjoying pizza, as well as funny pizzas made to look like other characters. Along with those images come funny game sounds as well.
