In the market for a game that offers uncompromised fun and doesn’t take itself too seriously? Look no further than Trailer Trashers, the newest release of our long time member Sakari Games! We’ll let the trailer do the talking.
Described by the team as a “billiards game of death” Trailer Trashers is a fun and violent twin stick shooter couch party game that has got you murdering the living hell out of your friends. Bullets bounce all over the carefully designed environments, ranging from a candid furniture store to a dirty construction pit, so you’ll rarely feel safe. You can equip your avatar with a powerful ability like a shield or invisibility to help you get the upper hand, but those have a long cooldown. Use them sparingly!
There’s classic deathmatch and last man standing modes to be enjoyed, but Sakari has also included their own bloody take on Rocket League. In soccer mode you need to dash or shoot the ball in the opponent’s goal. It likely won’t turn you into the next Zidane, but there are tactics involved. Not unlike the modern game, sometimes it’s more useful to play the man instead of the ball. Scoring a goal is a lot easier when the opposing defenders have been turned to a bloody pulp first.
Side note: if you’re not into all the cartoon violence or you’re not quite ready to teach your kids the effects of a lead overdose on the human body, you can make your opponents explode in a joyous fountain of delicious milk and cookies instead. Did we already mention this game isn’t taking itself too seriously?
Trailer Trashers looks like a fun and careless romp, and it might just be the antidote we need to take our mind off things. The game’s out right now on Steam and Nintendo Switch, with an Xbox One version coming in the near future.
