Death Squared

Take control of a blocky robot and coordinate your moves with your team to solve puzzles.

In “Death Squared” you need to move a bunch of colorful robots to their assigned goal. The game doesn’t tell you how to do it, so you need to explore each level by yourself.

Moving one of your robots to certain spots can lead to all kinds of consequencs, like shifting a platform or raising spikes. You realize very soon that you can’t win by just wandering around. You need to oberserve what’s happening and coordinate your movements with your team.

“Death Squared” is a great cooperative puzzle game with a fun concept and challenging levels. The game can be played solo, but it’s much more fun to shout instructions at other people.

Why you should play it:

  1. Sometimes you need to rely a lot on trial and error, but completing a level always feels satisfying.
  2. The concept works well with 2 or even 4 players.

About us

Why we’ve created “Couch Coop Favorites”

We love couch coop games. Nothing beats the joy of sitting in the same room, playing some fun games and experiencing the reactions of your friends—especially at the moment, when you’re more often at home with your partner, family members or roommates. Sure, online multiplayer modes can be fun, too, but couch coop modes have always been the best type of multiplayer games.

If you are like us, you play local multiplayer games on a regular basis, either with your kids or your friends. While most couch coop 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, PSN or Microsoft Store offer categories for local multiplayer games. However, they either feature just a handful of new games or list thousands of entries. Websites for couch coop games do exist, but they try to list them all, even the not-so-good ones. Gaming related blogs and magazines sometimes write about couch coop games, 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 Coop Favorites”.

We’ve created lists with handpicked couch coop games—filterable by platform, store and relevant features. On this website you can quickly find new games. Save time on researching, spend more time with your friends and family.

Who we are

We are Tabea und Patrick, both in our mid-20s and from Northern Germany. We have a deep passion for couch coop 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 target hardcore gamers.

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

How we select games

All games listed here are handpicked by us. We’re not paid by developers to feature their games. If we list a game, we genuinely like it. It’s that simple. No ads, no affiliate links, just good games.
