[Game] Good Pizza, Great Pizza: Our most successful cocos2d-x game!

Hi,

Just wanted to post this and thank the community for working on cocos2d-x! Also, hope this post will inspire other developers to never give up on their vision. Long story, short - we been using cocos2d-x since 2013 to make the best “pizza” cooking simulation game. Our first pizza game did pretty well in terms of downloads, but retention was bad; second game did slightly better in downloads and retention but nothing too impressive. Then, we made “Good Pizza, Great Pizza” and has been our most successful game to date:

Apple: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id911121200

Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tapblaze.pizzabusiness

Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/770810/Good_Pizza_Great_Pizza/

It has been downloaded by over 70 million players and has reached the top charts in USA, China, Korea, and Japan. In particular, it was the #1 overall app in Google Play - South Korea during October to November 2018.

We been working to further expand the game and recently added a new chapter.

Again, thank you to everyone that has worked on cocos2d-x! We’ll be attending ChinaJoy this year so hope to meet some of the cocos2d-x team!

Ok I’ve been playing all this time. This game is fun. The art is great, it took me a few mins to get my cutting down.

Community members, download and play this game.

@appkingpin let us send you an official Cocos t-shirt.

@slackmoehrle thank you so much for playing our game! I just sent you an email. Would love a t-shirt to represent!

Just wanted to let you know I visited the office in Beijing, did an interview and went to dinner with some of the team at Cocos2d-x and Chukong! Thank you for your help to arrange this!

I’m sorry that I couldn’t attend this! But I heard that everything was great and the interview was amazing. I appreciate the time you took to do this with us. Also. I’ve been playing your game so much lately when I need a quick fix. I’m pretty good. Also, what a great concept and game play.

@appkingpin I am still loving this game.

A few things:

  1. I can’t seem to make more than 4-6 pizza in a shift. The time moves really fast until closing time sometimes an order comes in at 8 and I’m handing it off right at close.

  2. What is the calculation for how much money in materials is used each day?

  3. Sometimes I make a pizza and then the customer says it shouldn’t have cheese on it. But the description said nothing about no cheese. Like a mushroom pizza to me is sauce, cheese, mushrooms. But the customer may say there should not have been cheese on it.

  4. It would be nice to make more than one order at a time.

There are so many aspects of this game I like. One things is the eggplant growing. I need to start buying upgrades for my pizza shop.

Thanks for the feedback! As for the material cost, each ingredient/topping has a cost as you place it on the pizza - something we should have better clarification on.

Yes, we are fixing the confusing and sometimes wrong cheese orders.

In Chapter 3 of the game, there are some days where you can take on multiple customers at a time. We are improving on this mechanic and will roll it out to the entire game for special days.

Glad you liked the eggplant growing! It is part of a bigger feature we are working on. We have so many idea/features to improve the game - just taking us awhile!

Thanks for the reply. I’m collecting some more feedback and I have a few ideas.

One thing. Anyone that comes into the shop that can’t pay or doesn’t have enough money I always make a cheese pizza for. To be nice and it’s the cheapest to make. Is there any benefit to making them a more fancier pizza?

Look forward to the additional feedback. Currently, it doesn’t matter what type of pizza you make when you are being generous to those customers; we are working on some Easter eggs based on this though :slight_smile:
