Slam Bolt Scrappers is a multiplayer fighting/puzzle hybrid by Firehose Games. Imagine if you will, a game of tetris in which you and your opponents desperately try to build up towers made of arbitrary shapes, all the while beating the living guacamole out of each other. That’s just about what this game is.
This Playstation exclusive features a four player co-op campaign through several Tetris-esque missions and gigantic bosses. The levels are numerous and fun with several varying themes that should appeal to a large player base. There are plenty of other ways to enjoy the game, like the traditional versus modes where you and three of your friends can finally vent all that built up rage against each other…in a colorfully whimsical way of course.
The object of the game is to build towers out of the blocks you gather. The most useful configuration for the blocks is to build weapons out of them, and there are plenty to chose from be they lasers, drills, or the ever amusing ping-pong. These weapons will help you attack your enemies and defend your towers, as well as many status effects to put your opponents on the ropes.
The gameplay is fast and frantic and the developers made a reasonable comparison to Super Smash Bros. from Nintendo. If you’ve ever wanted to prove your Tetris skills in the most blunt way possible, I recommend you pick up this game.
