Point ‘N Click Brawler “Scrap Riders” Now on Nintendo Switch, Steam PC
Sounds like the story of my first car.
On Monday, Microids Indie released the retro-inspired Scrap Riders on the Nintendo eShop and Steam (both PC and Mac).
Developed by Games for Tutti, Scrap Riders is a truly unique spin on the beat ‘em up formula, adding point and click mechanics into the mix, complete with a throwback 16-bit soundtrack and a pixel art visual aesthetic.
Here’s the official breakdown of Scrap Riders from Microids, followed by a new release trailer:
Scrap Riders is a pixel art beat’em up adventure game set in a cyberpunk future, developed by Spanish studio Games for Tutti.
Play as Rast, a member of the outlaw bikers gang Scrap Riders, and make your way through the wastelands as well as a big metropolis controlled by corporations. Act as a smuggler with caustic humor to survive in this post-apocalyptic world.
Fight your way through this 2D beat them up using your fists and guns, but beware: the wastelands are not for the faint of heart. There, violence is always the answer, but it won’t be enough! Without your wits you won’t last long. Talk to the right people, gather clues, and kick bad guys’ butts!
