Crust Crusaders Review!

“Crust Crusaders is a unique shoot ’em up roguelike. The toppings you select affect your abilities. For example, pepperoni gives you a double blaster, while mushrooms give you a shield. Not one play-through will be the same. Are you ready to defeat the evil veggies and save the planetary pie?

Crust Crusaders uses an auto-rotate feature that allows the player to enjoy the game by only using one touch!”

Shoot the toppings to win!

Straight off the bat, Crust Crusaders gave me Space Invaders vibes with a bit of a twist – you’re a slice of pizza! I think the gameplay is genius and adds a modern vibe to the retro game!


The graphics are brilliant!

Keeping with the retro theme, the graphics are in an 8-bit design and again, I love it. Graphics don’t always have to be super detailed to make a game good and in this instance, it fits in well with the overall gameplay!

Music & Sounds

Crust Crusader’s audio is amazing and again, fits in perfectly with the retro theme Sebastian Barrotta was going for!


Drag to control!

The controls are very easy to remember. All you need to do is drag your finger around to control the slice of pizza and it’ll shoot automatically. No matter where you go on the screen, the slice will point at enemies without any effort from you!

The Power of in-app Purchases

Crust Crusaders doesn’t offer in-app purchases!

This game is completely free which would be a good thing if it didn’t have ads. There needs to be at least an in-app purchase to remove ads so it doesn’t become annoying for players!

The Verdict

What did you think?!

This is one of those games you can’t help but constantly go back to! Not only is it a lot of fun to play but the levels are nice and short so there’s no chance of getting bored and deleting the app!

The only problem is the lack of in-app purchases. In-app purchases can sometimes be essential in order to give players the best possible game experience. I think, in this case, the option to remove ads would be helpful.
