10 out of 10!

Play it with a female coop partner and you'll soon find out if she likes to be on top or not...

A vast and varied psychological landscape that inevitably and definitively illustrates that you and your best friend are the two stupidest chumps in existence.

One of the best Co-op Puzzle games ever to be created (It's up there with Portal 2), true Co-op in which you HAVE to play cooperatively with another person in order to move forward in the puzzle, and alot of time you both will need to be in sync too.
The puzzles are challenging and very creative (again, up there with portal 2) and it's a great fun figuring the solution with a friend (especially if you two are on voice chat).
The music and Art design are both very good too, the only minor problem i had with this game is that the camera can be abit clunky at times.
I'm really enjoying this game right now playing it with a friend, bought it at a retail 14$ for a 2 pack and i think it's fairly worth it, on a sale it's a steal.

Great coop game. Ibb & Obb is a puzzle filled world, where gravity and momentum is what it's all about. Important aspect in this game is teamwork and patience. The moment you die, your partner dies and this can get frustrating at times. The checkpoints however are very fortcoming, allowing you to start almost always from the moment you died. Fun game and beautiful music. If you like the co-op part of Portal 2, I can higly recommend this game.

I love this game!
One of the cutest co-op games I have played so far (okay..and a little bit annoying at times since the puzzles are kinda challenging).

+Artwork
+Music

It is all about working together closely and if mistakes are made, you'll never die alone. Two souls connected by true love. What else can I say..
Check it out with your (beloved) co-op partner and you'll soon find out who is the dominant type ;)

Best co-op game ever. No violence (well, peaceful violence :P), so, very peaceful.
Fun to play with other people but very tiny player-base :(
Make sure you get the double-pack to play with a friend who actually wants to play it!

You'll have a good time.

ibb & obb might be the most adorable game I've ever seen.

Psychedelic colors swirl around the screen, weird geometric characters dance about, parties are thrown for no reason whatsoever; it's just so 'effing cute and I wanted so much to fall in love with it. But playing ibb & obb is like petting a dog and having it bite your fingers off. It's cuteness is equally matched if not exceeded by its degree of frustrating, nonsensical design decisions, to where my head began to hurt so much I'm not sure how I ever managed to complete the trek through hell that was somehow hiding below the delightful exterior.

Just to be entirely clear, ibb & obb is coop only, meaning you better have a friend ready and willing to brave its horrors with you before you even press start. And to this point there are some pretty cool ideas buried here, which force you to play cooperatively and make clever use of its main gravity inverting hook. There are two sides to every level, with each flipping your character over like you've cut a hole straight through to the other side of the world and gravity hasn't yet realized.

Using both characters in tandem is almost always required to allow both to progress, be it providing a step up onto a ledge or using momentum to carry each other through. It's a fantastic hook but its implementation here is unbelievably hamstrung and convoluted. The camera that has to contend with two characters often going in opposite directions bears much of the blame, often obscuring parts of the environment or even your character entirely as you fight against it to keep moving as it holds you back. The pretty environments come at the const of making levels difficult to even comprehend, often blending so well with platforms or bubbles I needed to float in that I often had no idea they were something I needed to interact with.

Puzzle designs, while on occasion genuinely brilliant, are often constructed such a ridiculous manner that numerous times throughout the game I thought we were breaking the game finding their solutions. So many moments are needlessly tedious and absurdly challenging, forcing literal split-second timing which its floaty, imprecise controls make cumbersome at the best of times and a living nightmare at its worst. Each new mechanic introduced only seems to worsen the already overburdened experience, leaving exasperated and fatigued before I was even halfway through. The abundance of network lag (which from what I've gathered is by no means an isolated issue) made parts of the game nearly impassible, as if the game was at last telling me to give up as my character ran wildly around at his own inclination.

The dissonance between ibb & obb's truly marvelous artwork and mellow soundtrack and it's reprehensible gameplay is probably one of the most shocking I've ever experienced. It's bewildering and depressing, and I'm still finding it hard to fathom how miserable an experience it was to play when it all seemed so wonderful from the outside.

Ibb and Obb is a fantastic little multiplayer, not too long, and not too short, it challenges the mind to solve the puzzles. A fairly relaxing game, there is no time limit, or anything too serious about dying, so you really can ake your time around these levels and get full completion!
recommended to anyone who games casually with friends online, the only downside is no singleplayer.

I just randomly found this game while looking for a co-op or multi-player to play with a friend. I stumbled upon this game and almost immediately knew I wanted to try it. I bought the Friend pack without too much looking into it and my friend and I started playing. I definitely don't regret it and recommend it for anyone who wants a cute, but challenging puzzle game to play with a friend. The colors and background shapes are serene and the soundtrack can be relaxing, but also upbeat. The entire vibe is cute and light, which isn't to say that you won't get frustrated. The puzzles definitely get serious and there are plenty of levels to work through for the price. The double pack is a good deal. There are even little hidden levels to find and conquer. You will want to go through each one more than once to explore and collect everything. I'm only half-way through the game, but I felt the need to stop and write this review because I'm so pleased with it.

This game is so charming and adorable! The soundtrack is amazing and the creatures are very nicely designed . Little details like ibb & obb looking at each other and when inactive they "fall asleep" really catch my eye. Works without problems and for now doesn't crash. The puzzles are hard but you feel great when you complete them.
Overall great game !

Addicting, cute, creative, beautiful, challenging must buy game. Get this for you and your buddy and prepare for a few hours of blaming each other. Even if you fail over and over you just can’t get mad at the game rather your partner is always the one to blame.
