No Heroes Here

Craft ammunition, man a cannon and defend your castle from invading foes.

For many years, the King of Noobland kept his people safe thanks to three powerful belongings—a medallion, a crown and a teddy bear. Unfortunately, one day, the king lost all three items resulting in a collosal defeat (all of his heroes fell in battle). Now, there are “No Heroes Here”, so it’s up to a small team of regular people to protect the kingdom.

In “No Heroes Here” you need to defend castles one by one, across three regions and over more than 50 levels. However, that’s not an easy feat, because not only do you need to hold off against ever growing waves of attackers but you also need to manage resources and equipment. You need to constantly grab raw materials, craft gunpowder and shells, load up a cannon and shoot the nearest enemy. It’s not just about being fast, though, as there are some strategic elements like special ammunition, different enemy types and gun positioning.

“No Heroes Here” is all about communication and time management, so naturally it can become quite hectic. Although it can technically be played in solo mode, we recommend 3–4 players as it’s much more fun (and feasible) to defend your castle with a team. If you enjoy similar titles such as “Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime” or “Regular Human Basketball”, you should give this one a try.

Why you should play it:

  1. Different castle layouts and enemy types make good communication and teamwork a necessity.
  2. More than 50 levels, 15 unlockable characters and additional challenges provide a lot of variety.

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 are two people who love couch co-op games

We are Tabea und Patrick, both in our mid-20s and 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!

Know a great game or found a typo?

Regardless of whether you’re an (indie) game developer or a fan of couch co-op games, we’d be happy to hear from you. Feel free to send us an email or start a conversation on Twitter! 😊 🎮
