Disclaimer: I was the developer of the Windows/Steam version of Slam Bolt Scrappers, so obviously I am biased. Having said that, when I first signed on for working on the game, I initially wasn't all that attracted to the gameplay, since mashup brawlers were not my thing, but I did love the visuals a lot. It seemed like a good fit for Steam, so despite me not liking the gameplay, I took on the project. However, I was very quickly won over with the gameplay, and now I love the game. It has just the right balance of "omg, should I continue beating up the opponent right now, or should I go after more blocks and building more towers/weapons??". It's frenetic and addicting and especially so when playing against your friends. And I still really love the visuals.

Slam Bolt Scrappers is a hybrid of Tetris-style puzzles with aerial combat thrown in. You control a person on a jet pack who collects pieces and assembles them into blocks to make weapons to destroy the other side, but to get the pieces, you need to fight aerial monsters and you have to wrestle them away from the enemy player.

I really didn't find much enjoyable about this game, really. As an avid fan of puzzle games, this was really a let-down, because the aerial combat is so much more important. You're not really given any time at all to strategically plan your board to get awesome weapon combos... even if you knock out your enemy, he'll be back in seconds to hassle you again. The only thing that might be worth it is the multiplayer, just for the fun of beating the crap out of your friends.

The graphics are cel-shaded and look alright. The music and sound work but aren't memorable. I used keyboard controls, and they seemed to work just fine. The only thing this game is really missing is fun.

If you're a big fan of frantic fighting-type games, then maybe you'll get more out of this than I did. I was really hoping for more puzzle-based gameplay from the screenshots, and I was let down. I certainly wouldn't recommend it at full price. If this looks good to you, wait for a sale.

- Local multiplayer only
- Short campaign
- All characters play the same
- Unplayable with Mouse and Keyboard
- Unsatisfying combat

+ Great concept
+ Steve from Minecraft makes a cameo
+ Enemy design

This is actually pretty fun, even in single-player. Tetris meets simple beat-em-up meets match-4. You've got to play it to believe it.

I don't think there's anything WRONG with this game, I just got bored with it rather quickly. It seems like it's designed around multiplayer but unfortunately it's only local.

When they tell you "controller strongly recommended", they mean it: game is utter garbage with a kb/m. Not just "bad control scheme", I mean straight up "the mouse is treated as a joystick with absolute ♥♥♥♥ acceleration and you will find it impossible to move across the screen without constantly lifting and dragging".

Also unless you plan to have people over to play this it's kind of limited in fun quotient. AI is not amazing, and it seems a lot like this would benefit from ♥♥♥♥ing around with pals. But the multiplayer is local-only.

Go buy Go Home Dinosaurs instead from the same company, it's just a much better GAME if you can deal with some clever tower defense puzzles instead of... uh... defending literal towers of blocks.

Tetris and Tower Defense, also with a PvP battle mode, this game is brilliant!

Got it in a bundle so i cant fairly comment on financial worth, but its actually rather great. Its smash brothers meets tetris. You are building squares (each colour having a function) the bigger the square the better, you can also beat up things that drop blocks, the other player and other stuff.

Yes it has a campaign which gates off content but to be honest this game is only any good in vs mode because who really cares about beating up an AI? You want to beat up your friends!
