Scrappers is a futuristic fighting game with a twist. You are not only battling the bots but fighting to manage waste as you traverse the city streets and take out the trash. You can play the game on your own or in a team of four mechanised trash collectors.

It's fast and fun, a lot like Castle Crashers where you compete not only to beat the enemies but get the most points as you do so. Here, loading scrap into your truck earns you money to help you progress.
