Scrap Squad - Gameplay Trailer
Scrap Squad puts players in the role of a mad scientist in a frantically fun-on-the-run action game. Players start out with a secret lab, a few clunker robots and a simple mission to sort falling objects, which those robots haul away and turn into cash to finance your nefarious plans. The trash treadmill soon speeds up, challenging the player to upgrade his army of ‘bots to become faster and more efficient. As players earn more and more money, they can unlock tons of upgrades and plug-ins to turbo-charge their robots, and their evil plans!
