With the advent of the online more and more developers began to forget about co-op on the same screen, but such projects are still relevant. Cooperative game for two is a great way to positively spend time with his wife, girlfriend or child, especially if they do not fit shooters like Gears of War.
Such an option of entertainment for all actively supported by Nintendo, which was released in late 2017 interesting cooperative puzzle Snipperclips Plus – Cut it out, together!
Snipperclips Plus is an enhanced version of the original launch of the project Switch – Snipperclips. The developers have added new levels and old ones were updated. Despite the fact that the project is fully dedicated to the co-op, you can play it and one that, frankly, not the best idea. The fact that a single passage is rather like a game of chess with himself, and pretty boring. Only in the cooperative interaction between the characters begins to play with all its colors, generating dynamic and funny situations.
In Snipperclips Plus you pick up one Joy-Con, and the second one to give to a friend. Everyone is playing for their hero, which looks like a geometric figure with legs and eyes. Combining shapes and pressing the special button, you can cut a silhouette of your character on friendly hero. Tilting shapes shift and achieving the desired silhouette, you need to solve simple puzzles in order to complete the level.
Puzzles are actively using physics, forcing you to adapt to the situation, and solutions can be several, depending on the stage and your imagination.
Somewhere you need to score the basketball into the basket – and then you can cheat and simply make a pyramid on legs, to drag the ball to the basket and push it from below with a simple jump. And somewhere to cut the paper so that the bird, which is controlled by a second player, on the way to the exit has collected three gems… Sometimes you need to insert items in the right slots to catch the fish and pop the balloons, creating hooks or cups.
Mechanisms designed for the joint action of the two players, and managing characters a bit inert, which can lead to unexpected and funny situations. This adds to the game a unique positive feel which can only co-op on the same console.
Unfortunately, not all puzzles are made interesting. Some too simple, others are complex due to limitations of control exactly create the shapes. Much of the game depends on the capabilities of your partner and if he is shamelessly stupid, you are unlikely to spend time. On the other hand, the game develops spatial thinking and logic in children, which may be useful.
The game is imposed also limit the local multiplayer to play online will not work, that eliminates from the project of lonely gamers.
If you want to play four, it can be done not only on special levels with puzzles, designed for four players, but in the mode of joint drawing, where you can create your own collages using a palette of colors and all the same functionality of cut shapes. Finished work can be shared with friends on social networks from the menu Switch.
Additional modes with random forms of the main characters and mini-games, like local hockey, look pretty strange and are perceived rather as an attempt to prolong the pleasure from the short game.
Snipperclips Plus – Cut it out, together! good, but pretty short co-op game focused on the two people in front of one screen, with good puzzles and funny animations, which suffers from the same type of music and lack of online. If you are tired of the split screen in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and fed up of endless LEGO games, you can try Snipperclips Plus, the more it is sold for a budget price.
