“Spearhead Games has done a pretty phenomenal job of creating a four-player puzzle experience that works with any combination of participants — or even alone.”

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.

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.

This game is a blast to play, though it was a little glitchy/laggy at times. This was to be expected though, as my friends and I were playing co-op over not necessarily so good internet connections, but it didn't detract from the game very much. We were all extremely sad to realize that there was no way to do Tiny Soccer or Troll Mode via online connections, however, as we worked hard to get all 20 cheeses and had been so excited to get to play Troll Mode together and just be ridiculous derps. It would be amazing if online co-op for these modes could be enabled, as we all would probably play the game for many more hours as a result. Otherwise it was a great challenge, and we had a ton of fun shouting at each other over skype to do this or be this Tiny Brain. :)

"Just get Trine1/2 (Portal1/2), and you'll have much much more fun²."

Tiny Brains is a coop puzzlers with less brain. The trailer is misleading and fun doesn't come up, at all. Just grab another title, of your choice.

Cons:
- have you seen one, have you seen all
- trailer is missleading (people=have fun)
- puzzles are boring
- no innovations
- boring in total

Pros:
+ 4player online&offline coop
+ good graphics
+ okay sound
+ okay controls

Definately keep your hands off!

Only about 2-3 hours long, but this is a fun little local co-op title. Worth it on sale.

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.
