Fire Hose Games Humbly Presents: ‘The Official Slam Bolt Scrappers Trailer, Best Trailer of All Trailers’

IT’S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN … to the March 15th release of Slam Bolt Scrappers on the PlayStation Network. To help steady your mind and ready your fingers for this slamtacular mash-up of brawling and building headed for your living rooms, allow me to humbly present: “The Official Slam Bolt Scrappers Trailer, Best Trailer of All Trailers.” Bask in its weaponized-block-filled glory!

Slam Bolt Scrappers is an epic game about blocks and baddies, friends and foes, building and destruction. The journey began long ago: We had discovered a powerful recipe by deciphering encrypted instructions found on ancient stone tablets. We followed this recipe for millennia, meticulously mixing strange ingredients from exotic locales. The result is a game with the perfect combination of multiplayer beat-em-up brawling and strategic puzzling. The result is Slam Bolt Scrappers. *cue epic music*

In SBS, players fly through the air above their team’s tower, punching cthuloid grubs to get colored blocks. Placing these blocks into squares of the same color turns them into powerful weapons that automatically attack their opponent’s tower. By punching baddies, building larger weapons, and saying mean things about their opponent’s face, one player will destroy their enemy’s tower and emerge victorious. 1-4 players can compete in the co-op campaign, fighting a variety of baddies and bosses, or duke it out in the multiplayer battle mode, unlocking new weapons and levels as they brawl.


We’ve put a variety of weapons in the game for your block breaking pleasure. Teal lightning blasters, purple laser guns, and automatic green drills are all at your disposal, but the ultimate weapon may be the dreaded black cannon.


The black cannon is unique in Slam Bolt Scrappers. Unlike all other weapons, the black cannon must be manually loaded and fired for each shot. Instead of using their blocks to build more weapons, players fly into the green arrow on each empty cannon and press the circle button to load their block into the cannon. The cannon then finds a target and fires a flaming block, causing massive damage to whatever it hits along with splash damage effecting other nearby blocks.

Slam Bolt Scrappers 4

Using the black cannon in fights always has devastating results. There is nothing like wiping out a huge weapon in your enemy’s tower with a single shot. Well, nothing except wrecking a boss with these same flaming projectiles.


So, if you want to get some hands on experience with the black cannon, be sure to pick up the game on March 15th. If the trailer got your heart racing and you can’t wait to use the cannon, stop by booth 1133 at PAX East for a hands-on sneak peak.

    All of this amazing life-changing gameplay can be yours for the low, low price of $14.99, my friend.

    Still on the fence? Then try before you buy with the demo and see how much fun it is firsthand. Or come to PAX East and play against us! Booth #1133.

    Man, next week is gonna be awesome.

I’m confused by all the fun looking stuff in the video, is this game supposed to be a hard strategy game or just a fun button masher?

“i need a way to sort them [PSN games} by NAME.”

This. There are like 4 different ways to sort them, how is ALPHABETICALLY not one of them?

As for this game, I’ll probably pass at 15 dorra and wait for a sale.
