Robotry!

As a robot with two arms you have to skillfully swing, climb and hop through colorful worlds.

The story mode of “Robotry!” starts in an underground laboratory where small, bean-shaped people are conducting experiments. You take control of a robot with a square body, which has just been repaired and is initially equipped with only one arm. With said arm you have to drag yourself through the first levels—with the goal of reaching the tube at the end, which will transport you to the next section. After a brief introduction to the control scheme, you receive an upgrade in form of a second arm, which significantly increases your freedom of movement.

In the following levels and worlds, you need to make progress through clever arm movements and solve small physics-based puzzles on the way. This requires targeted grabbing, throwing, kicking, climbing and cranking. The controls (one analog stick per arm) are certainly the biggest challenge, but they remain pleasantly frustration-free. We particularly like the good level design, because it regularly forces you to change your tactic: In a later world, for example, you have to push big wobbly frogs into the water instead of just getting to the finish line.

The story mode can be played alone or in local multiplayer mode with up to 4 robots. In addition, it is possible for two players to each control one an arm of the same robot, allowing a total of up to 8 people to be involved. With split control, a lot of chaos quickly ensues, which can be quite funny. Unfortunately, this seriously hinders your progress, so we recommend to play “Robotry!” with 2–4 people instead.

Why you should play it:

  1. Good physics-based puzzles with varied level design and cute characters.
  2. Well suited for families, because you don’t need to cooperate extensively and the difficulty level always remains moderate.
  3. After the initial launch the developers added multiple versus modes which is a great addition.

Please note: The console versions only support a maximum of 4 controllers, so you need to share them if you want to play with up to 8 people.

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!

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! 😊 🎮
