PixelJunk Scrappers Deluxe Reviews
PixelJunk Scrappers Deluxe is a decent enough game on your own, but playing with others makes the most out of the various mechanics.
PixelJunk Scrappers Deluxe is a good, fairly unique idea with several interesting challenges to juggle, and, if you enjoyed the original, the expanded worlds and new additions will fulfill your craving for more recycling action. Clever though it is in premise and arrangement, however, it isn't a very thrilling single-player game until around halfway through. If you do decide to give it a spin, you want to be online-ready, because multiplayer is where its engineering comes to the fore.
The concept behind PixelJunk Scrappers Deluxe is good. Mixing a beat-'em-up with garbage collection seems like a strange concept, but it all works thanks to the pacing of each segment and the simplicity of the mechanics. It's the little things - the paltry move set, the small opening for successful garbage collection, the need to repeat levels, the ease with which one can lose track of where they are - that pile up to drag down the experience a peg. It is still worth checking out for the semi-distinct nature of it all, but be sure to temper your expectations.
As far as co-op games go, PixelJunk Scrappers Deluxe is a thoroughly enjoyable title that's jam-packed with variety and nifty mini-games.
If you're looking for something creative specifically to play with a group of friends, locally or over a network, then PixelJunk Scrappers Deluxe is a great choice. It's a shame that the rhythm drops so much if we try to enjoy it alone.

A workable mix of time management and beat-em-up action, but far more enjoyable and balanced with friends
