Death Squared Nintendo Switch Review

*Product Received by Developer*

What is Death Squared?

Death Squared is a puzzle game meant for 1 to 4 players. You control little cubes trying to navigate dangerous scenarios to get to their corresponding area. In some puzzles, as you move the obstacles move. Meaning, you need to communicate to your friends precisely so nobody dies (death is inevitable in this game, it will happen).

 

What makes Death Squared so great?

Death Squared is great because it makes a fun party game to pull out with your friends. But what is also great about this party game is that there is a single player mode to where you control 2 cubes, one with each toggle. The art is good and the soundscapes are good. One of the best things in this game is the conversations between the narrator and the computer. Picture a Wheatley and Glados conversation type from Portal 2. It’s quite enjoyable.

What makes Death Squared NOT so great?

There are a ton levels. Yes, that is a good thing, but repetition does occur it seems like. For the price of the game, I do think it is nice to have the amount of features packed into the game as it is, but it gets kind of old quick. For example, I can only play for a handful of levels at a time before switching games.

My Conclusion

So what do I conclude. I do think the game is a success. I just think if you own it, don’t expect it to be your main game you play for weeks. You will probably find yourself picking it up only with friends or when your bored or on the go.

Pros:

  • Great Art
  • Hilarious conversation between narrators
  • Unique control scheme

Cons:

  • Can be repetitive
  • Can be boring as a solo game

Score: 5/10
