I'm expecting this game. Good luck greenlight. Cheer up~! :D

Reminds me of the games I started out playing in the mid 90s. I miss it :)
ㄱㅇㅅ Apr 12, 2014 @ 7:55pm 
Unlike other games, this game is hard to see these days is a unique and unusual graphics and gameplay expected Oh damn Google Translator

@Umbra Sort of. It's being remade from the ground up, but the current iteration as you see it - and for the most part this, Greenlight page as well - are a lost cause
Umbra™ Mar 6, 2014 @ 3:56pm 
im pretty sure this was abandoned. hasnt been worked on in over a year.
Delta Feb 10, 2014 @ 11:23pm 
looks good
HADES2001 Jan 30, 2014 @ 1:19pm 
hmm make it looks like mega man any more and im sure steam will ban it and capcom will sue you (nothing personal man but it looks a bit to much like mega man)
Artemis Jan 4, 2014 @ 7:42pm 
Brought me back to the 90s. Please, work on the graphics.

Hmm looks really like a megaman clone, but the campaign editor sounds really interesting. Hope it will be user friendly, because this would be the only reason that'll get me to buy this game. But about $3 is the absolute maximum I'm going to pay for a game like this.
Jeff_BR Dec 25, 2013 @ 7:58am 
good luck : )

nice game
NuclearShadow Nov 22, 2013 @ 4:26am 
I am happy to hear that. I am a fan of that style of game-play and do hope you succeed in making a good game.
awp  [author] Nov 17, 2013 @ 7:51pm 
@[GA]NuclearShadow That's a fair criticism, and it's also why the graphics are being completely redone by someone else. We're currently wrapping up another project right now, and once that's done RtR is getting a complete face lift. It's going to take a while, but it'll get there.
NuclearShadow Nov 16, 2013 @ 6:39pm 
I don't mind you making a game clearly inspiried by MegaMan but the classic MegaMan games a very aged and yet your visuals are nowhere near as appealing. If this was 20 years ago I could understand MegaMan was then a beautiful looking game and hard to match. But this isn't 20 years ago. You should at-least match the visual appeal but instead it looks like what my 5 year old son draws in MS Paint. Your game doesn't look retro it simply looks bad.
TehNinjaWaffle Nov 16, 2013 @ 1:11pm 
this looks like a maga man 20 totally buy this :3
Tillie Nov 4, 2013 @ 7:00pm 
Megaman clone? Pass.

This game souns pretty fun but it will be much better with a little more effects.
awp  [author] Jul 14, 2013 @ 8:44am 
@Tazi other than the logo and a complete redesign of the main menu, none of the new art has been integrated into the game yet - we've been busy on another project lately, getting it to a dev-heavy state before he transitions back to RTR. It's taking much longer than I would have liked, but hopefully we'll have something ready within a month or two!
Tazi Jul 14, 2013 @ 3:51am 
any new screenshots with the revamped graphics? :)
INDIE:J Jun 11, 2013 @ 1:14pm 
The character looks like a pizza on drugs - not that bad i suppose, +1 for you
Psychedelics May 26, 2013 @ 12:03pm 
Yeah looks a lot like mega man...

nobody Apr 7, 2013 @ 5:15am 
Why should i buy this if i have Megaman? Suuuuuper uninterested.
awp  [author] Feb 28, 2013 @ 6:35pm 
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the artist working on re-hauling all the graphics has begun work on the map textures and the Green Hill Zone-esque textures will soon be a thing of the past ):

I like what I'm seeing though, so it's not all bad. I'll try to attempt to make the effort to update what's on here since a lot of the images are incredibly old and outdated. It should provide a better impression of what to expect, at least visually.
Mvrak Feb 25, 2013 @ 4:50pm 
Way too similar to megaman.... needs to showcase something innovative or interesting to grab attention.
yung $hane Feb 25, 2013 @ 4:00pm 
Megaman and Sonic just had babies. Great game though.
contrast Feb 17, 2013 @ 11:25am 
mariooooo! :D
DeathClaw Feb 16, 2013 @ 10:03am 
I like it. Keep working on it and add more languages if possible.
Dr. Ink Jan 27, 2013 @ 11:58am 
thx :)
awp  [author] Jan 27, 2013 @ 11:38am 
@Fukowsky As it happens, I may have encountered the solution to that problem! I'll make an update if and when that solution takes shape
Dr. Ink Jan 26, 2013 @ 5:15am 
"MegaPizzaMan" *gigl*...
Do sth about the grapics.
upvoted for now :)
Seimalau Jan 26, 2013 @ 12:11am 
Knockoff megaman clone. uninteresting graphics and.
awp  [author] Jan 25, 2013 @ 4:11pm 
@Djawed Yeah, you put a checkerboard pattern on your dirt textures and just about everyone thinks it's GHZ. Gonna have to revisit that one for the third time to try to find something else that works
Djawed Jan 25, 2013 @ 11:47am 
thought that was green hill zone
rughe.cotone Jan 23, 2013 @ 7:35am 
Again, Miniclip, not Steam.
awp  [author] Jan 16, 2013 @ 4:19pm 
@HoneyBadger Mega Man felt like a good base for the character of Pizzor, and a small portion of the music used in the game was based on/inspired by it (particularly the title track, "Roots", which has its influence from Mega Man 3)

@Lord Weeaboo This game was built in XNA and utilizes XNA's Content Pipeline, so technically speaking: it fits the XBox 360's "sprite format"
Lord Weeaboo Jan 16, 2013 @ 10:05am 
Another poor and lazy indie game that has graphics that don't fit any known console sprite format and music that is ear-bleedingly tactless.

Screw this!
Dengir Jan 15, 2013 @ 7:32pm 
Megaman as a pizza..
Cat Jan 14, 2013 @ 7:12pm 
So it's Megaman but you're a pizza.
PC-only and English only... No thanks.
