Cp Knowledge: Pizzatron 3000

Welcome to another post of the series CP Knowledge. This is a series where I will talk about every single minigame on Club Penguin, continuing today with Pizzatron 3000. The posts include how you play the game, its history, stamps, trivia, high scores, and a personal review of the game! Hope you enjoy it!


GAMEPLAY

Pizzatron 3000 is a machine and a single-player minigame located at the Pizza Parlor. The objective of the game is to make as many pizzas as possible, without making any mistakes. You can make a maximum of 40 correct pizzas. To create a correct pizza, you first have to look at a white sign shown at the top right of the screen. The sign displays what pizza the customer wants. Then, you have to drag the correct sauce and toppings onto the pizza before the conveyor belt takes the pizza out of sight. 

   As more orders are made, the speed of the conveyor belt will increase. But making a mistake will decrease the speed. A mistake is made by putting the wrong topping on the pizza, or not being on time. However, spreading the wrong sauce over the pizza won’t result in a mistake. There are two sauces to choose from, the Pizza Sauce and the Hot Sauce. No pizza is complete without cheese, and some have toppings. The different toppings are seaweed, shrimp, squid, and grey fish. The game ends after you’ve done five mistakes, or completed 40 pizzas. 


CANDY MODE

There is a (not so secret) secret mode called the Candytron 3000, or the Cookietron 3000. It is accessed by pulling the red lever on the left side of the game’s menu screen. The Candy Mode is actually a bit harder than the normal mode. It is both faster and randomizes the pattern of pizza orders, not going in a progressing order like in the regular mode. Other than that, the only difference is the toppings. The sauces are switched out to a chocolate sauce and strawberry icing. Instead of cheese, there are sprinkles, and the different toppings are liquorice, marshmallows, chocolate chips, and jellybeans


HISTORY

The Pizzatron 3000 was created by Gary the Gadget Guy on February 26, 2007. Since then, the game has only gotten one update, which took place on April 25, 2011. With it came the ten stamps available for the game, and a new title screen. According to Aunt Arctic in issue 508 of the Club Penguin Times, Rookie “invented” the Candytron 3000 by “hiding his candy stash from his rubber ducky”, apparently within the Pizzatron 3000. Although he forgot to turn the machine’s switch off, and the next day, the Pizza Parlor was filled with candy pizzas.


STAMPS

The ten stamps that got introduced in 2011 are still the only ones available. There are two easy stamps, three medium ones, three that are considered hard, and two of the difficulty extreme. 

 


COINS

You get five coins for each pizza in the normal mode, and in the candy mode, you get ten coins. After five correct pizzas, you get tipped ten extra coins. After ten correct pizzas, you get tipped fifteen extra coins. And after fifteen correct pizzas, you get tipped twenty extra coins. It then continues that way up to a maximum of thirty-five extra coins until you either make a mistake or finish the game. 

   That makes the highest possible amount of coins for the regular mode 1085. 5 x 40 = 200 for the pizzas. And 10 x 5 + 15 x 5 + 20 x 5 + 25 x 5 + 30 x 5 + 35 x 11 = 885. The highest amount of coins for the candy mode is 1285. You earn the same amount of tip, but the doubled amount for the pizzas.


HIGH SCORE

“How is it possible to get a high score in this?”, you might wonder. Well, what I mean is the quickest time someone has finished a game without any mistakes. And looking at speedrun.com, it seems like the record was set extremely recently. As late as May 8, 2021, Pepperpot got a time of two minutes and forty-four seconds, impressive! 


TRIVIA

  • There is a total of 48 possible orders in Pizza- and Candytron 3000, 24 for each.
  • The music that is played during the minigame had a remix called “Extra Anchovies” in the igloo music list.
  • To improve your time, try putting on the cheese/sprinkles first!
  • There was a glitch when you were trying to find a friend while they were playing Pizzatron. A small blue sign would pop up and would say **pizza_find**. This glitch was never fixed.
  • The first two pizzas in normal mode are always cheese pizzas.
  • The first pizza in candy mode is always a chocolate sprinkle pizza.
  • In Bean Counters, there is a similar hidden candy level known as Jellybean Counters (how did I never know this?!)
  • The Hot Sauce is used when creating emergency Jetpack fuel. 
  • It is unknown why grey fish are used on pizzas instead of yellow fish since grey fish are rarer and harder to catch.

PERSONAL REVIEW

Pizzatron 3000 is one of my go-to games for making money since you can get great amounts in only a few minutes. However, it’s not a game that’s fun to grind, as there is only one type of game mode. You’re essentially just doing the same thing over and over, but faster and faster. I’d rate this game either a 6.5 or 7/10, I can’t make up my mind. Looking at the pure gameplay it’s a 6, but you do earn quite a bit of coins. Like most of the Club Penguin minigames, it doesn’t have enough content. But to be fair it is a minigame, it’s not supposed to. 7/10, that’s my final thought for this game.
