Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure

Throw a ball at other players while trying to avoid things like cars on a busy roundabout.

This game is basically about playing dodgeball, which probably isn’t a big surprise, since the word is in the title. However, the game gets surprisingly fun, because it adds interesting stages with a wide variety of dangerous objects to the mix—including a gym, a beach and an oil platform.

Set up a team, grab the ball and throw it at other people to knock them out. “Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure” requires fast reflexes and good doding skills.

Unlike in many other games, you don’t have to wait until the next round starts, if you’ve been hit. You can still participate from outside the field by releasing dangers upon other players—like rogue floor polishing machines. Seriously, you don’t want to get run over by them!

If you’re searching for a simple and quirky party game to play with your friends, “Stikbold! A Dodgeball Adventure” is definitely a good choice.

Why you should play it:

  1. Includes multiple game modes (teams, free for all) and some minigames. You can also add AI players.
  2. Suited for short sessions with all kinds of people, because the controls are simple and rounds are short.
  3. Knocked out players can still participate from outside the field.
  4. Set in a colorful and quirky 70s universe.

Please note: The version for Nintendo Switch includes an additional game mode (Wheel of Rumpus) and supports up to 6 players. All other versions only support up to 4 players.

About us

Great couch coop games are hard to find? Not anymore!

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 also be fun, but couch coop has 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. Every platform has some couch coop classics, for example “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe” or “Super Mario Party” on Nintendo Switch. While these 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, 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 coop games do exist, but they try to list them all, even the not-so-good ones. Gaming related blogs and magazines write about couch coop 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 Coop Favorites”.

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

We are two people who love couch coop games

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 look like it has been made for stereotypical 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.

We personally test every game

All games listed here are handpicked by us. We’re not paid by developers to feature their games. Developers often 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.

Know a great game or found a typo?

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