Slam Bolt Scrappers Hitting PSN this March

January 28, 2011Written by Sebastian Moss

Fire Hose Games’ crazy looking PlayStation Network exclusive, Slam Bolt Scrappers, has been given a release date, and just like Fire Chief Eitan Glinert promised, we won’t have to wait too long.

Slam Bolt Scrappers will be releasing on the PSN this march, published by Sony Online Entertainment. But what exactly is SBS? We’ll leave it to Eitan to explain, straight from our exclusive interview:

So Slam Bolt Scrappers is kind of this really crazy mash up of a lot of different genres of games. Its got bits and pieces of Smash Brothers, and Castle Crashers, and World of Goo, and everything mixed together. It’s a four player multiplayer game, it’s one to four players, so everything in the game is playable by one, two, three, or four players. It’s basically this game where you’re going and you’re fighting against other people while you’re simultaneously building these large towers which grow and fight with you. It’s very, very crazy. We’ve got some video on the Fire House Games website that you can see of the game, and we’re going to be putting up some new trailers soon. It’s very hard to do it justice. Basically you get these block shapes, which are kind of similar to the shapes that you get in Tetris, although we have other shapes beyond that, and these blocks are colored. You take these blocks and you build them to make big squares of the same color, and then these squares then grow weaponry which then fight with you against your enemies. At the same time you’re fighting people while flying around with these jet packs in this very fantastic cartoonish world, where it’s kind of like a little bit of science fiction, and it’s weird, everything is a little bit sideways. And so you’re going and fighting people at this time and basically whoever can kick over the other person’s tower so to speak, wins.
