Putty Pals Switch Launch Trailer
Putty Pals Steam Launch Trailer!
If you're wanting to play with someone less experienced things can still work out but you'll both have to be patient as they come up to speed and work out their coordination. Solo play is possible but once you get in several levels it becomes quite aggravating trying to coordinate your various button-presses for both characters by yourself. While it isn't perfect, Putty Pals is an excellent cooperative-play-focused platformer, and that's not something you'll likely see often.
Putty Pals never falters as a cooperative experience, and, while there is the chance to struggle as a lone player, it is undeniable proof that games are often at their best when enjoyed with others. This squishy cooperative puzzle platformer may see you bouncing toward Puttopia, but it is clear to see that its real home is on Nintendo Switch – embodying everything that the plucky portable home console is all about.
