About the Game

"Tiny Brains" is a cooperative action puzzler that follows four super-powered lab animals in their attempt to escape a mad scientist's experiments. In this joyously chaotic multiplayer game, the four "Tiny Brains" must combine their unique physics-based powers to navigate through a trick-ridden maze. All of the puzzles in "Tiny Brains" can be solved multiple ways depending on how groups combine their powers. The game has competitive and challenging fast paced communicative play along with simple controls so players of any level can jump right in.

KEY GAMEPLAY FEATURES
• Cooperative Gaming: Tiny Brains requires players to collaborate and put their heads together to overcome physics-based obstacles. With each player controlling a different superpower – Create, Force, Vortex and Teleport – the Tiny Brains must work as a team to move forward and escape the scientist’s deadly labyrinth of mazes.

• Play It Your Way: All of the puzzles in Tiny Brains can be solved multiple ways depending on how groups combine their powers. The co-op level design creates dynamic, emergent gameplay, whether advancing through the campaign mode, beating time-based challenges, or competing in endless levels.

• Whimsical World: To escape the mad scientist’s lair, players explore a colorful world of Popsicle stick-like ice pops, duct tape, tiny cages and Rube Goldberg machines. The zany art style gives rise to a slew of slightly mutated, yet oddly cute, playable characters.

• Hardcore to Casual: Tiny Brains eggs on hardcore gamers with competitive leaderboards and fast-paced communicative play, challenging them to combine their powers as efficiently as possible. At the same time, the game has simple controls and physics-based mechanics that make it easy for casual and less-experienced gamers to jump right in.

Tiny Brains is a small game that is best played with friends. If you play it solo, you'll find the puzzles a bit boring, the horde missions awkward and the get-the-ball-to-the-other-side puzzles annoying. The graphics are pretty, but that's all it has going for it. If you want to play a proper puzzle game, play Portal (2) or Q.U.B.E., which are also coincidentally twice as long.

There are too many bugs in this game to deem it worthy of playing. It was unplayable with myself and three other friends across the internet. It's a good game idea executed poorly. The interface in the game also done very poorly and you are unable to tell what certain actions will do or what they are doing.

Great co-op fun. Laughs to be had, rewarding challenges to be completed. Reminicient of co-op portal.

Very fun, but you should get 1-3 friends to join you.

Seems like it's only designed for 4 players. Not a lot of fun with 2 players. Disappointed that they didn't tune the game for 1-3 players as well.

Though hampered by the occasional bout of unpredictably frustrating physics, Tiny Brains is unique and creative enough that you forget to care. It's clear that the game was designed with multiplayer at the forefront, as playing solo is possible but significantly less rewarding. Multiplayer can be in the form of couch or online co-op or competitive play, and features gameplay so fun that it's difficult to get too worked up over the potential failures of your teammates.

The game never wants you to take it seriously, and that framework is part of what makes the game work so well. It's charming, packs a killer ear-wormy soundtrack, and offers brain teasing gameplay that will no doubt remind you of Portal. Though the main story campaign is pretty short, the package you get from the multiplayer is more than worth the price tag.
