If you are desperate for a new couch co-op puzzle game and you’ve already played Snipperclips and Overcooked to death, then this might be a fun little time waster for you. However, there isn’t a huge amount of replay value here after you learn the solutions, and the levels don’t do too much to challenge the player. Play throughs can feel like a chore with a lack of variation in art, music, and design, with only level 79 standing out as new and innovative over many hours of gameplay.
This Death Squared review score probably ends up higher than most would expect (or not), but I honestly can’t find much fault with the game. What the developer, SMG Studio, set out to accomplish, a great puzzle game with deep co-op, was successful. Are there a few minor hiccups here and there? Sure, but the depth of controls and level design cover any missteps from the game.
In short, Death Squared is an incredibly fun puzzle game for Nintendo Switch. While it may be unrewarding for second playthroughs and in-game progression, the fact that there are over a 100 levels means that players who love puzzle games will love this too. Not only that, but the seamless drop-in/drop-out co-op means that whether you want to play by yourself, or with a friend, or three other friends, you’ll be able to with the just a push of the Joy-Con release.
