Screwball Scramble, the classic toy of yesteryear has been perfectly recreated as a free browser game.
Released in the late 1970s, Screwball Scramble was on the Christmas wishlist for many children for the next decade and beyond. To be honest, I’m pretty sure they’re are a lot of adults today that wouldn't think twice about picking up the maze toy from Tomy.
In case you didn't know, the premise of Screwball Scramble is simple. Players must navigate a ball from the beginning of the labyrinth to the end, overcoming a series of challenging and fun obstacles.
In fact, you can pick up a re-release of Screwball Scramble from most Toy retailers for around £15. However, if you can’t be bothered to do that, thankfully a free browser adaptation is here to save the day, playable on PC and mobile. Though it is advised to play the game via desktop.
As reported by DigitalTrends, the free Screwball Scramble browser game is available to play now and it’s surprisingly decent and it’s created by Jean Joulia. However, after just a few minutes of playing, I encountered childhood flashbacks of epic tantrums. So be warned, while fun, Screwball Scramble will likely trigger a level of rage that would even make the likes of the God of War, Kratos tremor in fear.
Screwball Scramble is recreated in its original form to near perfection, in all honesty, it looks like a game that could be sold for a few quid. Its visuals look nice and even come with its original box art. More importantly, the gameplay physicals are absolutely nailed down, to the point of replicating the real counterpart's puzzling frustration.
Whether you’ve played the original game or not, I wholeheartedly recommended checking out the Screwball Scramble browser game. But as a heads up, not only is it frustratingly fun, it’s surprisingly addictive too. So if you’re at work, let’s say, typing something up on a laptop, you might want to avoid playing it during work hours. Just saying.
