Short Description

Scrap Galaxy is a local build & destroy deathmatch game for up to 4 players. It is a 2D top down shooter taking place out in space in a galaxtic junkyard. In this setting the players are trying to survive by constructing space ships.

The game is round based and each round is divided up into two phases; build phase and battle phase. During the build phase each player gets a number of components and has to assemble a spaceship from these under time pressure. During the battle phase the players pilots the ships. They battle against the other or team up against the garbage drones living in the junkyard.

The randomness makes every new round into a new challenge because you always have a new ship to battle with. This also makes the game quite addictive.
