Turbo Pizza is a restaurant time management game where players have to build and manage a pizza restaurant franchise to help Robert and Rebecca. The restaurant consists of pizzas and other food items, such as ice cream, popcorn, cakes, and other dishes. There are different kinds of restaurant equipment where players can get the food items. Customers will then be entering the restaurant at the start of the day. Customers have a patience level beside their head. The player must serve them before all their patience run out. The time remaining for the level is located at the upper left part of the window. Players can also find the restaurant rating, cash earned, and the cash amount that must be acquired for the level.
Customers that enter that pizza restaurant have different characteristics. Some customers are more patient than others, and players must create a strategy in order to serve all the customers in time. A customer that loses patience will leave the restaurant without paying. Money earned for each game level can then be used to purchase upgrades for the restaurant. These upgrades will allow the player to serve customers faster. Some upgrades can also increase customer patience. Players get to improve restaurants in different locations.
