Bullion

Fight monsters and other pirates on tropical islands while trying to collect the most loot.

If we were to claim that “Buillon” was released more than 20 years ago, few people would probably question it. The game is clearly inspired by the SNES and N64 era, but not only in terms of aesthetics. The developers say they want to evoke the same sense of friendly rivalry as the classic couch co-op games from the 90s. We’re definitely in for that.

“Bullion” features three gameplay modes: Avarice, Defiance and Voyage. In all modes, you have to fight against smaller enemies or boss characters whily trying to collect as much loot as possible. Treasure chests are dropped by enemies, pop out of the ground and can also be gained by backstabbing your fellow pirates. The game offers an interesting mixture of co-op and competitive gameplay. In general, you need to fight together. If the whole crew are cut down at the same time, the game ends. However, there can only be one winner, because the true goal is to collect the most treasures.

The combat system consists of attacking, blocking and dashing with the occasional use of power-ups. Because the overall pacing is rather slow, the fighting can feel sluggish at times. Additionally, there’s a relatively steep price tag. That’s why we can only really recommend “Buillon” to die-hard retro fans. Nevertheless, they will certainly enjoy it.

Why you should play it:

  • You can select from a range of charming characters which actually feel a bit different in terms of gameplay.
  • The friendly retro graphics and the harmonious soundtrack create a pleasant feeling of nostalgia.

About us

Great couch co-op games are hard to find? Not anymore!

We love couch co-op games. Nothing beats the joy of sitting in the same room, playing some fun games and experiencing the reactions of your friends first hand—especially during a pandemic, when you’re more often at home with your partner, family members or roommates. Sure, online multiplayer modes can be fun, too, but couch co-op has always been the best type of multiplayer games for us.

If you are like us, you play local multiplayer games on a regular basis, either with your kids or your friends. Every platform has some couch co-op classics, like “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe” and “Super Mario Party” on Nintendo Switch or “Sackboy: A Big Adventure” on PS5. While these couch co-op games can be played over and over again, you may want to try something new from time to time. So, where do you find interesting, new titles? Sometimes you get great recommendations from friends, but most of the time you need to do your own research.

Most game stores like Steam, PlayStation/Microsoft Store or Nintendo eShop offer categories for local multiplayer games. However, they either feature just a handful of new games or list thousands of entries. Websites for couch co-op games do exist, but they try to list them all, even the not-so-good ones. Gaming related blogs and magazines write about couch co-op games from time to time, but it’s not their main subject. You probably don’t want to search on the internet for hours and hunt for hidden gems. You want to find great, new games without the hassle. That’s why we’ve came up with the idea for Couch Co-Op Favorites.

We create lists with handpicked couch co-op games—filterable by platform, player number and relevant features. On this website you can quickly find new games which have been tested by people like you. Save time on researching, spend more time with friends and family.

We love couch co-op games

We are a group of friends from Northern Germany. We have a deep passion for couch co-op games and did a lot of research on the subject in our student days. We don’t know all titles, but we certainly know a lot of excellent games for different platforms and audiences. We regularly play games, but we still identify as casual gamers. We believe that not every gaming related site needs to look like it has been made for stereotypical gamers. That’s why we’ve decided to and make this site look friendly and approchable.

Our mission is simple: We want to bring joy to people looking for good couch co-op games and we want to support indie developers, too.

We personally test every game

All games listed here are handpicked by us. We’re not paid by developers to feature their games. Developers may send us their games for free, but this doesn’t influence our opinon about these games. If we list a game, we genuinely like it. It’s that simple. No ads, no affiliate links, just good games.

Are you working on a couch co-op game?

If you’re working on a couch co-op game, feel free to send us a short email with a link to your press kit and a few codes. To be able to test a game properly, we use multiple platforms (PC and at least one console, if possible). Currently, we prefer to test on Steam (Windows/Ubuntu) and on Nintendo Switch (EU/Germany). Please understand that we cannot publish a review for every game. As our time is limited, we are unable to test any betas or games in “Early Access”. Additionally, we priotize games which are available on multiple platforms (not Steam only).

If you’re not sure wether your game is “good enough” or if you haven't been feeling very confident lately, please consider reaching out anyway. We are regular people, just like you, and we try to answer every email!
