    A great co-op platform game that requires some strong platforming skill but is largely based on terrific puzzles. Artistic direction is great and challenge is very high (especially if you're aiming at 100% completion). There are some minor issues, mechanics are pretty simple and there basically is no single player, but it's still a great game.

    Ibb & Obb is an excellent 2D puzzle-platformer with a unique gravitational mechanic and well-crafted co-op play.

    Ibb & Obb is a game that’s really at its best when playing with a friend and exploring the game’s collage of elements, as you try to puzzle your way through the obstacles and challenges ahead.

    ibb and obb is the rare game that puts all its focus on co-op. If you have a friend to sit down with you'll find a beautiful and challenging game that tests your wits, reflexes and your ability to work as a team. Casual gamers stay away!

    Despite flaws in the difficulty curve, I would still highly recommend ibb and obb if you’re looking for an awesome online or couch co-op experience.

    Behind the playful exterior of Ibb & Obb you’ll find a cooperative puzzle gem. Playing with gravity works phenomenally well and solving puzzles is gratifying. Ibb & Obb is far from perfect with its slightly monotonous gameplay and lack of a good reward system. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that Ibb & Obb offers a cooperative puzzle experience that from time to time reminds you of Portal.

    It’s not perfect, and it’s certainly not meant to be played alone, but Ibb & Obb is still worth checking out for those that enjoy solving puzzles with a friend.

The level design and soundtrack are simply mesmerizing. Great bonding experience, play with a close friend and have some laughs. The single player version is practically impossible for me, I wish they made the other character AI instead of having the user control both guys with the two sticks. Probably my favorite indie game this year, next to Hotline Miami. 10/10 Expand
