About

Red Rope: Don’t Fall Behind is an allegorical local co-op game: the two protagonists are the archetypal couple, united by a rope that represents their bond.
Their link has a double meaning: it surely is a restriction, a promise, a limit to their liberty, but it is also an alliance, a pact, a synergy.
Without their link, the rope, they wouldn’t be able to survive the insidious labyrinth in which they move, they would be defenceless facing the macabre presences that torment them, they would be indiscernible from the roaming shadows they themselves sacrifice to strengthen their bond.
The labyrinth is a cosmological representation, a mandala, where every area, every enemy, every value and every geometry has an intentional symbolic placement.
What the players have to face is an initiatory journey in search of the key that opens the exit door.
An arduous and difficult challenge, a cathartic ritual, that only the most valiant players will be able to carry out, players with a special elective affinity.Key Features:
  • Play with a friend or try alone. It won’t be easy either way.
  • You are trapped in a labyrinth: more than 100 hand-designed levels full of tension, action and mystery separate you from the exit.
  • The rope is the only weapon at your disposal.
  • Battle dozens of unpredictable enemies, learn their moves and plan yours. No tactics means death.
  • Solve puzzles: carefully observe and exploit the many mechanisms.
  • Discover a world packed with symbols to decipher and bizarre inhabitants.
  • Defeat 4 minibosses and 5 bosses on the path to triumph.
  • Climb the global chart but beware: every action has consequences.
  • The game continues beyond the screen: communication and complicity are paramount.
  • At least 10 hours of gameplay. Or 100 if you are not up to the challenge.
  • A true hardcore experience: only a few will succeed.

Red Rope: Don't Fall Behind reviews and comments

Very good game... So why is this negative evaluation going to tell me? Ben simply because in solo this game is unplayable or in any case too frustrating to be able to continue playing alone. Control two characters at the same time with two stick is just impossible level coordination (or sync if you prefer...). It's a pity because the game looks really great but intended only for team play. So if you have no one to play with you at home (COOP available locally only) to forget alas...

If you are looking for a fun and challenging game in its gameplay, which you want to rub with your half/friend/brother... on the same PC, you hit the right door with red rope! For less than €10, support a small independent Studio that offers dozens of hours of play in co-operation mode on a single PC via a simple keyboard or a joystick, all in a neat and original atmosphere, it's well worth it! The level design is very neat; its very varied levels, with their specificities, and each piece of the maze will be a new challenge for you to overcome with your Sidekick. In short, a beautiful discovery that this game, which deserves much more media visibility! :)

Product received for free if the beginning of Red rope may seem trivial, it will reveal its potential by advancing in environments. Once the original gameplay is discovered and eventually mastered in part, the title will show its ingenuity in its varied dungeons and just length. The gradual difficulty of the premises will maintain a constant pressure on the player who will see his number of lives descend as new dangers arise. Mastered from start to finish, red rope is a safe bet for those looking for difficulty in the game, alone or in cooperation, without ever being unfair or frustrating.

In a world where cooperative play is rare, RedRope fulfills all its expectations and we quickly adore its partner.. only if he listens to you, you can also hate each other it in 30 seconds ("but kill me this guard you see well that it runs after us but tournnnne....... "but why do you want to kill something with his beard when he talks to us?") So after a few minutes of adaptation, if you agree, we quickly arrive at great satifactions that cannot be limited to moving from one level to another. at this level of play, I probably miss a large narrative part to discover, but the string as metaphor of the couple (in the broad sense) which has, either, its own limits but which is indispensable to move forward is present from the beginning. Also, with a bit of training, if your gambling partner is not there, you can always try to play alone (which I did but I have not yet confessed to my partner) and I can do it one day even if it is at the risk of ending schizophrenic! I advise all RedRope, with its Super pixel art, which does not lack quotes (we think of the myth of Ariane for example) or irony.
