Local Coop

8 Eyes

2 out of 5. Not a Metroidvania. This forgotten classic-vania hits Steam, sharing its unique two-player gameplay and riddle antics with the modern generation. Recommended for game design students.

Sundered

4 out of 5. Local Co-op. Has some absolutely amazing moments that are padded out with grindier features, but the excellent multiplayer let’s you fill in those slower parts with social conversation.

Timespinner

3 out of 5. Local Co-op. Gorgeous visuals and music, and tight controls. Level design doesn’t live up to the standard set by its Castlevania Inspirations. Its unique ideas could be fleshed out more.
