Death Squared is a cooperative puzzle game for 1, 2 or 4 players. Together, you solve puzzles by guiding a robot to a colour-coded goal. Getting there requires co-operation and communication as each player's path has deadly traps and hazards.

Complete the main campaign with one or two players, then take a group into four-player Party Mode for an experience that works well in families. It's a simple idea really well executed.
