Gameplay Experience
Upon arriving at the Death Squared booth at PAX West, the opportunity presented itself with what promised to be an enjoyable game for those new to games. After talking with the devs and playing a few levels, a passerby was brought in to play a few rounds with me. Without the guiding hand of developers by my side, the difficulty of each challenge really started to sink in. Before long, my partner and I were a dozen deaths into a level as we worked through the steps to reach the goal.

From deadly spikes, fast moving lasers, and simple falls off the edge, we really had to use teamwork to make it through. Readjusting to each new mechanic in the game meant that learning curves were never in short supply. In the end, I had a new friend that I shared some laughs with, and a new respect for the challenges in Death Squared.
Final Thoughts

Inevitably this game is on the list to pick up at launch. This game is simply too much fun to spoil, by learning the secrets, without friends and family to play with!
