Slam Bolt Scrappers – Not What It Looks Like

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by Sr. Social Media Manager

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 Games, so he could better explain how this upcoming PSN exclusive plays.

Hopefully you now have a better idea of why this genre-mashing game is racking up the accolades. Look for it in early 2011.

Wow. An actually unique looking game.

Are you guys hiring? >.>;;;

In all seriousness though, if I have the money when this is released I’ll support you guys for the originality alone.

I demoed this at PAX this year, and it’s definitely the most pleasant surprise I had. The mix between puzzling, creep wave blasting, and out-and-out brawling is clever, and both the competitive and co-op modes felt fresh and unique. I will definitely be buying this when it comes out.

That actually looks really good. I’m glad that they’re people out there that are coming up with great, new ideas.

That looks really good, I’ll definitely check it out

@Jeff, Sid and the team

Is it just me, or is it impossible to log in to the Blog through Google Chrome now? I’m not sure if something has changed in Chrome, in the Blog, or just in my computer, but I can’t log in now unless I use IE9. All other websites seem to be working.

Is anyone else having this problem?

Looks really awesome :) I’ve been looking forward to this. Day one for me: been waiting for a deep co-op game to sink my teeth into with my buddies.

Thanks for your hard work ^_^

Looks fun.
The wife likes puzzle games (Critter Crunch ftw!)
adding brawler elements and the like make it sound very unique
Got my eye on this one.

y did u steal marios hat?

frenetic is definitely the word I would use, and it looks really fun!

does the game render in 1080p natively and/or use MSAA?

anyone noteworthy doing the music?

will the music and explosion assets be 24-bit and/or losslessly compressed to take advantage of the PS3’s unique HD audio capabilities?

It’s so great to see all these awesome local co-op games on PSN lately! (Lara Croft, Shank, Critter Crunch, Scott Pilgrim, Alien Breed, Castle Crashers, Piyotama, …)

This is exactly what PSN needs, more great downloadable titles. I’ve been following this game since it was announced and to me it looks like Firehose Games are crafting a sweet gaming experience for us PS3 gamers. You guys got my support, day one purchase for me.

Looks fun! I like that you say PSN ONLY, keep it up Playstation.

Looks like a madman’s mashup of Tetris, Puzzle Fighter, a tower-defense setup, and a fighting game where you fly around the screen (I’m looking at you, Chou Aniki). Sounds crazy, but looks fun.
