    Death Squared is a Puzzle strategy game on PC, PS4, Xbox 1 made by SMG studios, launched March 13 of this year.

    Once the main menu is loaded you will notice how easy, smooth and simple it is with 3 options to choose from. Making sure you are going to find what you need. When I picked the story mode it loaded a report on the screen with a voice in the background, a computer voice. It jokes around with you as you ask it to load a game or test routine.   With two modes to pick from Story (2 square boxes, 1 or 2 player) and Party (4 Square boxes,1 to 4 player) you can face endless puzzles with hours and hours of fun. You can do a local mulitplayer but sadly no online play as of yet.

    The idea is simple and basic, you have to move your two square boxes to the matching color circles on the ground.  Your left joystick moves the Red Square box and your right joystick moves the Blue Square box. You have obstacles to navigate and edges that you can plummet to your death from.

     

    In some rounds moving one of the Squared boxes will move blocks around near the Squared box. Hidden mines, moving walls, lasers, traps, mustaches, and more! The game makers went beyond the basic obstacles when devising ways to stop your progress in this game. As each round loaded I thought I would be able to figure it out easy, but some of them even got me thinking. While I still have not finished it yet, I am sure some of you out there can breeze by all these levels. 

     

    In round 5 I came across some lasers that would kill your box of opposite color from the laser. You had to use same color box to shield the other box. This was very fun to figure out and try and beat.


     

    Well looks like we can carry each other too. You have to use each other to move around and sometimes carry each other. Check out what I came across in the 8th round of play.


     

    The party mode allows you to play with 4 Square Boxes. This is even harder as you must use all 4 of the Square Boxes as a team and timing is very key as you will see in this video. You have to do things in a certain order or not everyone can complete the level.


     

    Overall it is a fun game with hours of play value, while it does seem to border on repetitive, the voice overs from loading computer and test subject offers great comic relief. The jokes poke fun at your current situation from repeated fails to almost making it to the end of a level. You can make it dance in game and add logos to the little Square box, two more ways to enjoy this far beyond its simple concept.


    Final verdict great fun puzzle game that can be enjoyed solo or with a group that knows what it is and pokes fun at its simplicity.  This would be a great party game and challenge to our thinking outside of the box so to speak.
