How to play Two-Player games
There are competitive and collaborative two-player games. In competitive two-player games, both players compete against each other in order to win the game. Most two-player sports and board games revolve around competitive gameplay. In collaborative two-player games, the players must work together to solve puzzles and defeat opponents. The aim is usually for both players to safely reach the exit. Players can achieve this by helping each other climb platforms, collect items, and open secret doors. The characters in the game will usually have complementary skills, and the levels can only be completed by working together.
While these games are designed for two players, players can also enjoy these games alone. In competitive games, players will often be able to select a single-player mode to compete against the computer. Collaborative two-player games can also be played alone. One player can control both characters at the same time, or move them around the level one by one.
Games for two players: fun series
We’ve got some great collaborative two-player games to try out. In the Fireboy and Watergirl games, both characters need to work together using their complementary elemental powers to solve a series of platform puzzle levels. In the Money Movers games, players can help two criminal brothers escape from jail in a series of tricky platform levels. Survive the zombie apocalypse in The Last Survivors, or find the way back to Earth in Space Prison Escape. Have fun playing!
