News:: Review: Death Squared

There's a lot we can thank Valve for, apart from the annual Steam sale. Hiring the team behind Narbacular Drop and expanding those ideas into Portal kicked off an entire generation of clever, challenging action/puzzle games, many of them set in secretive government labs. Games that take an interesting mechanic and really drill down and explore all the possible applications and permutations of that mechanic are common now, but when done well, they can still be a lot of fun.

One of the Switch's early success stories has been Snipperclips, a digital-only cooperative puzzle game that's easy to share with friends thanks to the Switch's modular controllers. Death Squared has similar accessible, share-it-with-your-friends gameplay, and it works for the same reason Snipperclips works. While Death Squared has been available for a few months on other platforms, the Switch's unique form factor and portability give this version a bit of an edge.
