Q-Games' Scrappers has received a fairly sizeable new update that adds fresh gameplay features and a host of quality-of-life tweaks.
If you missed it at launch, this one's an interesting beat 'em up where you'll work to collect garbage off the streets while being attacked by angry locals. Now, can do so with a cute little robot dog by your side. They can help you out and keep your stack combo count going, much like a co-op partner would in the multiplayer mode. That said, the dog isn't able to fend off attackers or take down your enemies.
On top of that, an overclock bot will now enter the level periodically. Attacking its fiery bubble will cause your character's speed to increase while giving your stacking limit and attack power a handy buff. The bot can also be used in co-op.
One major quality-of-life improvement is the ability to share a six-digit code with your friends in order to let them join your game at any time. Random matches also make it easy to hop into a game with players who have the same options selected.
A new auto-catch feature has also been added that allows you to grab and stack rubbish without any required input from yourself. This can be toggled on or off in the game's menu, and it's said to be a good way to introduce new players to the world of Scrappers.
And finally, all garbage now has different colour values that indicate how much everything is worth. They come in normal, heavy, special, and enemy varieties.
Scrappers is now available for download from over on the App Store. With it being an Apple Arcade game, you'll need an active subscription to play.
