PixelJunk developer Q-Games release Scrappers for Apple Arcade

PixelJunk developer Q-Games had a surprise release over this Easter break with a new game put out on Apple Arcade. The game is not a new PixelJunk game but a new IP called Scrappers. It’s a game that highlights the importance of clearing up litter, a nice environmentally friendly message, while also getting paid for it. Oh, you also beat people up who break the rules in the town of Junktown. Basically, Scrappers is a side-scrolling beat ’em up where picking up litter is a key driver.


Here are the key features:

Key Features:

  •  Explore 4 vibrant, uniquely themed areas with over 20 stages.
  • Master the art of fast and frantic garbage collecting, either solo or with up to 3 friends.
  • Battle rival garbage collectors in chaotic street brawls using a variety of unlockable weapons.
  • Customize your garbage truck with over 100 unique custom parts.
  • Unlock and recruit a variety of Scrappers for your roster.
  • Challenge your friends in fun and competitive mini-games.
  • Immerse yourself in a colorful world that interweaves cyberpunk influences with a cartoony pop style that draws inspiration from real-world Japan.
  • Includes support for PlayStation DualShock 4, Xbox Wireless, and MFi controllers.

Scrappers is only playable through Apple Arcade and a subscription to that costs £4.99/$4.99.

Our last Q-Games related review was for PixelJunk Monsters 2, and in that Jason wrote:

Pixeljunk Monsters 2 is a very solid entry in the tower defence genre. The little things it has changed make for some really interesting choices when it comes to tower placement and co-op play makes it much more replayable. Graphically the game is stunning in its own way and will keep you invested in the tree-destroying, tower-building, funky-dancing gameplay as you progress through the increasingly tricky levels until the end. It suffers from the same issues prevalent in any TD game but is a solid entry nevertheless.
