Get together with a loved one, a group of friends or even the whole family and guide teams of two or four robots through increasingly-complex levels to their color-coded goals. But beware! The path through each level is littered with cunning death traps that quickly send the automatons to the big scrapyard in the sky.
One false step can trigger a hidden spike, lethal laser beam or other dangers which will send the entire squad back to square one. To progress, players must work together to learn each stage through trial and error, putting newly-gained knowledge into action to survive and succeed.
In addition to the two-player story mode, Death Squared includes insane 'party chaos' challenges specifically designed for groups of four. A single-player can also enjoy the traditionally two-player story mode, and two-players can tackle 'party chaos', by controlling two robots with one controller.
