Slam Bolt Scrappers is one of those funky games that some creative thinker dreams up but rarely finds the courage or resources to make. What if Tetris had guns and explosions? What if you could clobber other players with flying avatars while sorting blocks? And what if you could pilfer power-ups from airborne ninjas? All of these questions find an answer in this ambitious new game by Fire Hose Games, which emerges as a curious mixture of puzzle, strategy, and brawling that feels at once nostalgically familiar yet like nothing you’ve ever played before. Though it makes a good first impression, Scrappers ultimately falls short of its tremendous potential on account of some conspicuous shortcomings and the absence of an online multiplayer mode.
