Slam Bolt Scrappers: The Strange Rise of Fire Hose Games

SlamBolt-Interview

“They call me the creative director, but most of the time I just surf the internet and watch Kevin Butler videos.” Eitan Glinert is a lively character with a quick tongue and a big smile, and the self-proclaimed “Fire Chief” of Cambridge-based developer Fire Hose Games. As we speak, Glinert’s team is days from releasing its first game, the PlayStation Network exclusive building-and-brawling party game Slam Bolt Scrappers, available now on the PlayStation Store. The excitement level is high – three celebratory stuffed pizzas are on the way.

In speaking with Glinert, we quickly learn that Slam Bolt Scrappers’ chaotic building-and-brawling gameplay didn’t develop in a vacuum. And, for that matter, neither did Glinert. He was the first graduate student of MIT’s GAMBIT Game Lab, where he researched video game user interfaces and ways to make games as accessible to as many people as possible.

Slam Bolt Scrappers is available today in the PlayStation Network store! YESSSSS!!! You can start scrapping right now with the full version for $14.99 or introduce yourself to this epic mash-up of brawling and building with the FREE DEMO. Let the celebratory slamming begin!

In Slam Bolt Scrappers (SBS to the cool kids) you race to combine colored blocks into squares of the same color. Build big colored squares and they form weapons that automatically attack your enemy’s tower. The player with the last tower standing wins! It sounds simple enough, but once you throw in jetpack fueled flight, punching baddies, stealing blocks, awesome power-ups of awesomeness, and fun button-mashing brawling you’ll quickly realize how gloriously chaotic our game can be.

Slam Bolt Scrappers – Not What It Looks Like

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Oct 15, 2010

PlayStation-Default

At first glance, Slam Bolt Scrappers appears to be a puzzle game, but that’s only partially correct. It’s also part brawler, part strategy, and really, really frenetic in multiplayer. And despite the familiar appearance of the pieces you’re, um, scrapping over – this ain’t no Tetris. Recently we met with Eitan Glinert of Fire Hose […]
