Is Death Squared on mobile the first version of the game that I'd pick up? No, I'd probably go for one of the console versions first, particularly the Switch version, because Death Squared is at its best when playing with a friend. Or three, as the levels that support up to four players are not in the iOS version. But, the core concept is great, and the game has a lot of cool moments. If you're gonna play the game solo, or maybe want to share your iPhone or iPad to play together, you can do so.
This mobile version controls brilliantly, and while the lack of a safety net might take a while to get used to, once you do you'll be buzzing through the levels with a grin on your face.When the App Store is dominated by games that are little more than iterations of other, successful titles, finding something like Death Squared is an absolute treat. Why do we puzzle things out? Because we like to think we're smart. It makes us feel good. And Death Squared does that in spades.
