Reviews

“Squirbs is a little gem that sits on the Steam store without much fanfare or attention given to it, partly thanks to the bigger, more budget-backed releases, and that’s a shame because what’s on offer here is a fun, challenge-infused platformer that oozes charisma and creativity”
8/10 – GamersFTW - Martin Segarra

“The solution to some stages is quite obvious but it may still end up taking you thirty-odd tries to get there, while others will have you convinced they're impossible, but it's a well-crafted and addictive game which I've enjoyed a lot.”
8/10 – Red Parsley

About This Game

Squirbs is a challenging puzzle-platformer in which you control two cute blue Squirbs simultaneously with one set of controls.



Squirb shattered the Universe Crystal splitting himself into two seperate Squirbs. Now both Squirbs must journey through dense forests, underground caves, snowy mountains and a magical castle in order to collect each crystal fragment and set the universe back to normal.

Squirbs combines solid platforming controls and mechanics with awesome puzzles but with a twist. You control two characters at the same time. You can't just jump around and get to the end, you must watch both characters and ensure every movement you make won't be certain doom for either Squirb.

Features


- 100+ single player levels - Easy to insanely challenging
- Online Co-op - 20 Specifically designed co-op levels
- Four environments - Forest, Underground, Snow and Castle
- Wide variety of mechanics that provide new challenges as you progress
- Steam Trading Cards
- Achievements
- Awesomely difficult levels
- Cute Squirbs!

Fun and interesting for the first hour or so. Very cool puzzles invovled in controlling both characters at once. Unfortunately at some point it goes from clever to repetitive and frustrating. If you're not incredibly precise, good luck. Would probably be easier if you have a second player. In that case I might recommend it.

This is a very challenging puzzle game.
I just played it for an hour without even knowing. You can play this with friends and see who can complete levels in the least amount of attempts :O
I completed World 1 (forest) in the first 2 hours I played, and attempted World 2..
The game gets drastically harder lol. Good freaking luck completing it!

Death explosion is awesome, has cards, fun puzzle gameplay, only 6 bucks!
Get it if you enjoy a challenging puzzle-platformer.

Excellent game! A few minor things I didn't enjoy like getting killed on the top of spikes when they are facing the other way but that just adds to the challenge. Even though I'm not very good at it, the game is extremely challenging and tests your reflexes and will keep you sharp! I can definitely recommend this game!

Pros:
Very nice and simple art
Very cool premise (in theory)
Good controls

Cons:
Most puzzles are solved by trial and error rather than clever thinking
Takes forever to actually beat a level after you've figured out what to do
Lacks that addictive element that keeps me coming back to better puzzle games
Works better as a newgrounds free to play game than a full release

Addictive two (twin) character puzzler game. Need to move both characters through traps obstacles, using the obstacles to make one character to the goal, then keeping that character from hitting traps, whilst the other character completes goal. Its a simple very simple game, but very challenging and addicting. . . with achievements to boot, you cant go wrong for a few dollars. Go get this game its a lot intelligent mindnumbing fun.

Squirbs is, pretty addictive and the simultaneous controls makes it a unique game. The controls and mechanics work well, allowing it to create interesting puzzles where you would have to think from both Squirbs' perpectives. The first few levels start off easy, to give the player a sense of the game. The 'deaths' remind me a little of the 'bloody trapland' game as more and more blood is splattered onto the ground.

The later levels, as mentioned by other players, start to rely more on your control over the Squirbs in order to complete it. It does provide a great challenge (mentioned in the description) to the player and could be pretty frustrating.

If you like difficult platformer/puzzle games (with more of an emphasis on the platformer portion), I would definitely recommend this game.

I bought this game on Itch and again on Steam simply because it's so addictive and the art is wonderful. I love the main character, it's so godamn cute and the idea of the game itself is great. And it works to perfection. The mechanics work very well and the difficulty curve of the game is executed amazingly. I found it easy to get into this game and as I progressed I found each level harder and harder as more mechanics we're introduced. This totally sold the game for me because it was very challenging but at the same time so fun to play! I'm happy to support the developers of this game and future content that they may release. Gimmie that pink Squirb aha. Great job.

I really like the concept here. I've played other games with the two character at once concept (Brothers for example) and this game pulls it off very well.

I can't recommend this game due to its overly touchy difficulty level. I don't enjoy figuring out a puzzle within 30 seconds and then spending 20 minutes dying over and over to actually pull it off. Lemmings suffered from thsi issue too. After a while the difficulty is more about incredibly precise inputs instead of actually using your brain.
