While it does deliver a mix of classic arcade-style simplicity and fun with a bit of stealth, it lacks lasting flavor
As an old-school arcade fan I can appreciate games that throw you into action with no particular expectation of how long you’ll last. In the case of Pizza Possum that absolutely feels like a core part of the experience, with runs that will last a while followed by ones where you’ll crash and burn pretty quickly. Your goal is quite simple, eat as much as you can without getting caught. Simple as that may sound, it can absolutely be tricky. Aside from a small variety of power-ups you’ll have at your disposal a little bit of stealthy hiding in the bushes can also be effective, you’d just better be sure your pursuers don’t see you going in or it won’t work out. Just for kicks you’ll also have the option to play with a partner in crime locally, which is a nice touch, but the core game remains a relatively love it or leave it proposition depending on what you’re looking for in terms of depth.
