Death Squared might have launched on Steam, but it feels like this game and the Nintendo Switch were made for each other. Deceptively smart puzzles, an endearingly smarmy sense of humor, and organic, instantaneous multiplayer all at a great price make Death Squared a must-buy on Switch.
Death Squared is an excellent addition to any puzzle fan's library. The puzzles may be a source of frustration at times, but they're also so well designed that you'll feel like you've accomplished a lot when solving them. The inherent co-op nature lends itself perfectly to multiplayer, especially on the Switch, where it doesn't require much to get a two-player game going, and the plethora of levels means plenty of time spent solving puzzles. It's yet another solid title in the system's young library.
Death Squared is a welcome surprise that must be tried by fans of puzzle games. It is an interesting opportunity for those who want a party game or to share with friends. It will give you some good laughs while presenting increasingly complex challenges.
Graphically it may seem very simple, but once you start playing it, the technical aspects will take a backseat and you'll focus on solving each challenge, one at a time.
Brilliant puzzler that centers around communication with multiple players. You genuinely feel smart after solving them rather than just relief at being done with it. I normally don't go in for puzzlers, but this game converted me.
Death Squared is an intense and action-packed puzzle game designed for one to four players where mayhem and fun go hand in hand. Focusing on what the game is all about, Death Squared will satisfy anyone looking for an experience that is simple to pick up, whether solo or accompanied, even if it offers a lot more value on multiplayer.
Death Squared is another game on the Switch that's not easy to play, but it is fun. Like other puzzlers on the console, it's not dependent on playing with other people but you'll get the most out of it if you do. Anyone can pick up and play this game, but they're going to swear and complain when they do, both at the game and the people they're playing it with.
Death Squared brings the trial & error concept in the world of puzzle games. Nothing new, really, but a pleasant surprise nonetheless. If you’re looking for a game that will rack your brain, this is something worth your while. Be sure to have a friend to play with and, most of all, a lot of patience.
Death Squared is a cocktail of two things that, theoretically, could never become a successful mix. Having said that, and although combining couch gaming and puzzles is a concept that doesn't work as well as intended, SMG Studio handles its unique idea quite alright. As a result, those who'll look past its few flaws will surely have a blast here.
An awesome puzzle-game, with great humour. A must-have when it's discounted on e-shop.
But as far as I'm concerned, I play it alone.
It's really difficult, so co-op mode, when two players must synchronize themself, seems too hardcore for me
Fun co-op game that surprises and frustrates you in an enjoyable way. Just when you think something might work, you get electrocuted, spiked, or fall off the path. You also get to choose your characters' quirky appearance. Great for small group hangouts.
Play this game sans the urge to lookup YT for solutions and then beat a particular puzzle is most satisfying. Some of the block movements are not intuitive and can cause cheap deaths through no fault of player. Humurous voice acting and CoOp is the way to go .. the children got hooked but later on the difficulties do turn them off .. leaving only adults to be more suited to enjoy this brain teaser.
