“Forced is one of the best co-op games around”
See – http://www.gamefront.com/indie-gems-forced-collaborates-in-the-arena

“Teamwork unlike almost any game I've played before”

“It is these strategy elements, whether mental or physical, and the degree of communication and coordination required to achieve them where FORCED truly shines as a co-op game.”
5/5 – http://www.co-optimus.com/review/1302/page/2/forced-co-op-review.html

Typically single player games have co-op features that aren't requirements to play and pass the game. FORCED on the other hand is a single player game that HAS TO BE played in co-op. The challenges scale so that if there are fewer players you may need to do a task fewer times or kill fewer enemies, but it's still challenges created with co-operative play in mind; you may need to carry a ball fewer times across the screen but you still need to carry it across the screen rather than alternating with a partner. There are four heroes, each specializing in different tasks and the game comes into its own when they're all working together taking advantage of their specialties. You can conceivably play this title single player but it's an experience meant for co-op. Preferably 3 people or more (max of 4).

Like any co-op experience FORCED spends little time in cutscenes or dialogue; there are 5 hubworlds you travel to in a small overworld map, each with 5 levels and a boss. Each level gives you a max of three crystals: one for completion, another for completing a challenge specific to that level, and a third for completion under a certain time.

It's a relatively short game if you're just aiming to pass levels and face the bosses. Despite that several levels and bosses present a WORTHY challenge and will require some coordination and strategizing on your teams' end. Otherwise length and replay value comes in trying to do the challenges and finishing the levels under the time limit. Many of the challenges further the co-op aspect by requiring some modicum of strategy in finishing them, whether that be lining up the shield hero so that he tanks hits whilst the archer attacks from afar so that no one on the team is hit by a particular enemy, or positioning heroes so that an explosive object doesnt touch enemies on its way to its objective in a timely manner. I don't know how its even possible to complete some of these tasks in single player.

The point in completing challenges is for crystals; attaining a certain amount unlocks more abilities for your class and/or slots to use abilities (maximum of three). The abilities are obviously different for each class, and they have their use depending on what you're trying to do. You can use one of your slots for a healing ability to aid your team in bossfights, or you can switch it out for a rapid fire attack to take out many smaller enemies that may present issues whilst the rest of your team is focusing a large enemy down. Pre-levels there's a moderate amount of strategy in synergizing heroes and abilities to get the job done.

Good and pretty short co-op experience, but that's the big thing: unless you have a group of people to play this with don't bother. It can be fun playing alone, but it's like playing payday or left4dead alone and without bots. It's made to be a co-op title and without it it isn't as enjoyable.

A unique game that combines both fighting and puzzle-solving skills, with the icing on the cake of the co-op mode in which you can play with up to 3 friends to complete the levels, using both your wits and teamwork.
At first i thought it could be another boring "kill and solve this thing to proceed to the next level" game, but damn i'm happy that i were so wrong.

The puzzles are infact part that has been very well integrated into the battleground of your levels, it means that you will have to both fight and use a spirit with the shape of a sphere (your main tool to solve these puzzles) in order to beat certain kind of bosses, or just to open a door while running from a swarm of monsters or either avoid lethal environment present in the level, or even activate some for your aid.

Even the fighting part itself is pretty nice, 4 different gladiators to choose from, each with their own weapons and unique skills that you will earn as long as you progress into the game by completing the levels themselves and their respective timer to beat, or some "challenges" which will test your skills furthermore.

The requirements of this game are also kinda flexible, at the minimum of 2 GB ram i could've run this pretty smoothly, of course decreasing video quality, but with even more recent computers it can run decently at higher settings.

One of the best university projects that made into Steam, made with the Unity engine. Definitely a worthy game.

It isn't bad.. it isn't great.
Played with friends, and we eventually gave up on it. The game is hard to navigate, the levels aren't really that fun, and some of the classes sorta get gimped.

That said.. not the worst game I've ever played. This is a solid 5/10.. just sorta "meh".

Yes, i've only played a little bit of this game but what I've played is amazing. If you are a fan of Gauntlet from N64 or the PS2/Gamecube one, you will enjoy this game a lot. It isnt just killing things endlessly, it actually has a fair amount of puzzles in it that can be quite challenging. 10/10 for sure, this is a game that is well made.

I recommend this to anyone who wants a fast-paced game, with good CO-OP abilities and a full amount of focus!

Says it has local coop, supports 4 player, and has full controller support. I could not navigate the menus with the analog stick because it would jump across selections. Using the d-pad works, but I could not figure out how to play with more than 2 controllers. The second controller will simply play BOTH players 2 and 3. This is the first negative review I've ever written. This game was a non-starter for me and I am very disappointed.

I donated 100$ to the Kickstarter of this game, knowing my computer wouldn't be able to play it at the time. I wanted to this game, and all it's glory. I even watched them as they developed it on twitch, which was more rewarding than I expected. The time these gentlemen put into this game cannot be understated. Truly a marvel to watch, and I'm proud to finally be able to play it. I've even purchased it for my friends, now we shall all kill the cow together.

Death to the cow.

It might be my favorite dungeon crawler of all time. Your dude learns skills that are actually cool ( none of that HP + 1 ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t ) when you level up, and the game is more focused around puzzles and teamwork rather than just killing stuff endlessly. ( Though there is a mode for that too. ) Though the game can be quite buggy, as it has bugged out on me and my friends a couple times when we played. I also can't comment on the single player experience as I did not play solo, but this game is super fun with friends.

One of the better co-op games I've played. Definitely the best co-op indie game I've played. So awesome, in fact, that everyone I play it with avoids continuing to play with me! I get way too into it. But it held interest for my wife and I and a friend of ours for about 20 hours of gameplay before they didn't want to listen to my ♥♥♥♥ anymore, so that's saying something. Honestly, though, the element of interacting with each other via using the orb to interact with the environment in order to navigate the map and defeat creatures and bosses... it's ingenious (I realize that was a confusing sentence but perhaps it helps properly emphasize the complexity of the game). This game gets a solid 9.5/10. It would get a 10/10 if I could find the right friends to finish the game with! I really want to beat it!

Extremely tough but rewarding! Voice acting is pretty hilariously bad at times - but for my friend and I, it was a great release from the frustration of dying endlessly. It's not a perfect game, but from all of the local co-op games we have played this one is held close to our hearts!

Having played only a few hours so far, this seems like a very fun and engaging co-op game. I'm playing with three of my friends, which I think is the perfect amount of this game.

Definitely recommend it, insofar as you have a group of three to four people you can play this game with.
