Scrap Rush!!

Acquire-developed maze-based arcade game Scrap Rush!! is coming to North America and Europe this summer for Switch and PC via Steam, publisher PQube announced.

The game first launched for Switch via the Nintendo eShop in Japan on April 16. The Japanese release supports Japanese, English, and Chinese text options.

Here is an overview of the game, via PQube:

About

Scrap Rush!! puts you and your friends into an arena full of metal blocks that might remind you of classics like Bomberman. Instead of bombs, you collect scrap, turn it into blocks, launch them in straight lines to crush your opponents between them and the wall to grab their scrap while dodging other players’ attacks! Depending on the game mode, last robot standing or the one with the most scrap wins.

Got the basics? Then let’s have a closer look at the action!

The Rivals

Sweep Proto (the old model, gathers scrap with his vacuum arm) versus Mag Nex (the new model, gathers scrap with a powerful magnet).

How to play

  1. Choose a block – Get next to a block or create one with scrap.
  2. Launch – Position yourself to line up a shot.
  3. Crush – Crush your enemies between the block and the wall to watch their scrap go flying in a big explosion!
