Relevant Games’ first mobile title has undergone a name change since its announcement in February 2014, as “Evil Genius: Scrap Squad” has become simply “Scrap Squad,” and has been released in full on iOS and Android devices. The game asks players to take on the role of an evil genius, but instead of world domination, players must focus on recycling trash (how else would an evil genius earn the money to fund his empire)?
In each game of Scrap Squad, debris slides down a conveyor belt to a fire at the bottom of the screen. Players must organize the recyclables into four color-coded robotic bins before they’re allowed to reach the fire and burn. As players fill their robots and earn points and coins, the belt speeds up and actual trash is added to the playing field.
This trash must be avoided (that is, allowed to burn at the bottom), and every missed recyclable, or any item sent to the wrong robot, costs a heart. When players run out of hearts, it’s game over, and they’ll need to start again.
Robots have a maximum capacity, and will automatically empty when full. However, this takes time to complete, so players may need to move items back up the conveyor belt to avoid the fire while waiting for the robot to return.
