Death Squared is a cooperative multiplayer puzzle game in which you control one of a team of block-shaped robots trying to navigate a path through a landscape of blocks and puzzles. You'll need the help of up to three other blocks to let you complete the puzzles and finish the levels.
Co-op fun and frustration
Death Squared is a simple game with simple controls, you move your robots around the level, pushing blocks, triggering sensors and interacting with the various other objects and devices. It plays like a cross between a puzzle game like Portal and the classic board game Robo Rally. The graphics are simple but clear, making the levels easily 'readable.' You may need a certain amount of trial and error to work out what each unfamiliar new feature does. The ideal play style is patient and experimental, and at higher levels it may take a while to figure out any one level. The movement controls can take a little getting used to at first, which can lead to frustration when your robot tumbles off the edge of the map accidentally. Once you've completed the core story campaign, you can keep testing your skill on harder puzzles in Vault mode.
A fun choice for puzzle fans
If you've got a couple of friends who like puzzle games as much as you do, you should check out Death Squared. It's a challenging, entertaining multiplayer puzzle experience.
