"Tiny Brains" is a cooperative action puzzler that follows four super-powered lab animals in their attempt to escape a mad scientist's experiments. In this joyously chaotic multiplayer game, the four "Tiny Brains" must combine their unique physics-based powers to navigate through a trick-ridden maze. All of the puzzles in "Tiny Brains" can be solved multiple ways depending on how groups combine their powers. The game has competitive and challenging fast paced communicative play along with simple controls so players of any level can jump right in.

Key Gameplay Features

  • Cooperative Gaming: Tiny Brains requires players to collaborate and put their heads together to overcome physics-based obstacles. With each player controlling a different superpower – Create, Force, Vortex and Teleport – the Tiny Brains must work as a team to move forward and escape the scientist’s deadly labyrinth of mazes.
  • Play It Your Way: All of the puzzles in Tiny Brains can be solved multiple ways depending on how groups combine their powers. The co-op level design creates dynamic, emergent gameplay, whether advancing through the campaign mode, beating time-based challenges, or competing in endless levels.
  • Whimsical World: To escape the mad scientist’s lair, players explore a colorful world of Popsicle stick-like ice pops, duct tape, tiny cages and Rube Goldberg machines. The zany art style gives rise to a slew of slightly mutated, yet oddly cute, playable characters.
  • Hardcore to Casual: Tiny Brains eggs on hardcore gamers with competitive leaderboards and fast-paced communicative play, challenging them to combine their powers as efficiently as possible. At the same time, the game has simple controls and physics-based mechanics that make it easy for casual and less-experienced gamers to jump right in.

Tiny Brains reviews and comments

Great fun in local co-op. Worth it just for that despite the short length. Nice colorful visuals.

One single puzzle is a huge spike in difficulty and clearly misplaced.

"Benefiting from a very humorous universe and an honest realization, the game nevertheless fishing by great ease but do not forget to be very fun to many whether local or online."-GameSideStory.com http://www.gamesidestory.com/2014/01/05/gametest-tiny-brains-pc-360-psn/

Excellent puzzle game and "puzzles" with a colorful and friendly universe. Unfortunately it sins by its playing time a little too short if one is not interested in the modes more "try harder". To recommend despite everything on sale where if you love to finish the games up to the marrow and the last star.

A good headache that takes its full dimension in local Coop. 4 shifters, 4 small critters each with a speciality that combined and ordered solve the riddle. Frankly I love this kind of games. Tiny brains is a success. One can just regret that it is a short and that there is no add-on to prolong the fun.

What's better than saying we're going to have a good time with friends? Tiny brains offers a campaign with a scenario based on reflection and coordination sometimes, without that prevents you from laughing well! Your goal: to find a way to escape or get out of the room. Your means: 4 exchangeable characters (even in full part course) with different small powers allowing you to use and interact with one or a few objects made available to you. You just need to motivate your friends...

Sweet little game that is already a lot of Fun to Knot in The single Player. The Developers demonstrate Humor and entertain the player for several Hours with beautiful Backdrops and smart Puzzles. For the Multiplayer, I wear when Friends find themselves to Play Along with. About the Mutliplayer: Colleague and I had Problems getting the Coop up and running. We were always stuck in the Lobby, and then didn't see each other in the Levels. But after I had set up my PC as DMZ Via the Router Configuration as a HOST, it ran clean and without any Lag. The Multi Is Fun, at any time recommended, to try it again.
