Players may enjoy putting together orders -- for a little while -- in this store management-based game, but it quickly becomes very repetitive. In Good Pizza, Great Pizza, customers order at the counter, and then players get to choose how much of each requested topping gets put on each pie. Players move pizzas through the process until they're boxed up and handed over, all the while watching a running tally of what ingredient use is costing them. The monetary aspect of the game is a nice touch; players not only watch spending and earning happen in real time, they also see a breakdown at the end of the day of overhead costs and how they relate to the pizzeria's profit. The app also provides tips to help players use ingredients wisely.

But the actual gameplay is pretty repetitive. Customers' orders get slightly more complex each day, but you're still moving through the same sauce-cheese-topping, bake-then-slice assembly line, which can get kind of boring. Also, there doesn't seem to be any real reward for getting orders right: Customers don't always appear to notice if you don't. Aside from putting pizzas together, and occasional updates from the Pizza News Network, there isn't much else to do. As a result, you might play Good Pizza, Great Pizza for a while, but the game can quickly become stale.
