Going on adventures together and solving challenging puzzles. Games like It Takes Two have reshaped the co-op genre and fueled the desire for immersive 2-player co-op experiences. Because it’s so much fun, we made a Top 5 List of similar titles.
It’s a rainy day, and you’re sitting at home. You’ve just successfully completed the adventures of It Takes Two and already ask yourself: What’s next? We’ve compiled a list of co-op games that are comparable to the popular It Takes Two.
5. Snipper Clips
If you want to master challenging puzzles together with your friend or partner as in games like It Takes Two, you’ll get your money’s worth in this title. Although this game doesn’t offer an emotionally deep story or impressive worlds in 3D, it convinces even more with its innovative game mechanics and the associated concentrated load of comedy and fun. You play as two paper shapes and have to cut each other to fit the required shapes and reach your goal. The game starts out fairly easy, but the difficulty increases quickly. Since the two playable paper shapes include a female and a male character, the game is also very suitable for couples. With huge laughs guaranteed while cutting out!
The game is available for Nintendo Switch and has a 2-player co-op.
4. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
This title can actually be called the base game for It Takes Two because, again, Josef Fares, who also directed It Takes Two, took over the lead development. It is a sad, yet adventurous story of two brothers. The special thing about this game is that you can also control both sons with only one controller and play solo. In a newer version, however, there is also the possibility of going on an exciting journey together with a friend or your partner in the classic co-op mode.
The game is available on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, iOS, Android
and has a 2-player co-op.
3. Unravel Two
This lovingly crafted 2.5D platformer has more in common with It Takes Two than you might first think. In this game, you take control of two cute characters made of yarn. Again, your cooperation is required to a very high degree! Together you’ll run and jump through wonderful yet challenging levels, and you’ll always have to solve puzzles that are often directly related with the help of your yarn. Just like It Takes To, mutual consideration for your partner determines your successful progress in the game, and the story is also designed to be very emotionally charged.
The game is available on PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC and has a 2-player co-op.
2. Portal 2
The critically acclaimed guessing game got a cooperative mode with part 2, which really has it all. In this game, we move through clinically white rooms in science fiction style and have to solve tricky puzzles with our teleport partner. Grab a friend or solve challenging puzzles together with your partner, which always involve the laws of physics and demand your full cognitive effort. If you are searching for games like It Takes Two, this is another very unique experience.
The game is available for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC and Mac with a 2-player co-op mode.
1. Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury
The game, which was originally supposed to be released for the Nintendo Wii U, has now made its successful debut on the Switch, offering you a fun, adventurous co-op spectacle set in the Super Mario universe. Take on the roles of your favorite characters and join forces as you experience lovingly designed levels and defeat numerous bosses together. Bowser’s Fury also offers a successful expansion of the story, which you can also master cooperatively.
The game is available for Nintendo Wii U, and Switch, and has a 4-player co-op.
