Top Critic Average
Despite some noticeable performance issues, utterly frustrating controls at times, and sometimes ridiculously hard sections, I actually found Biped an enjoyable game. I wouldn’t recommend it for a young audience though; it’s too demoralising, as just holding a direction for a fraction of a second too long or sometimes even the game itself flinging you too far off a ramp can mean death. It’s cute, quirky, and I love the idea, but it needs some tweaks and polishing before I’d go back and try for the optional challenges.
Biped is a unique 3d "platformer" with a really interesting way of moving your character. Entertaining in both single player and co-op, Biped is packed full of creative obstacles and unique challenges.
Overall, Biped was a cute cooperative experience that my boyfriend and I both enjoyed. While there isn't a lot of dialogue in the game, the Bipeds had character. This is a perfect game for a wide range of age groups and is a great buy for it's price. As such, Biped receives an 8.5 out of 10 in my books.
So overall, Biped is an amazing coop experience for you and someone else. The stages are fun, the levels are appropriately challenging, and the graphics are super cute with fun music to add to the atmosphere. Being on the Switch also helps for you to bring it along as long as you’re being safe in the current climate that we find ourselves in with Social Distancing.
Grab your buddy, your sibling, or maybe get lucky and find someone online, and get ready for some crazy, chaotic co-op fun. This is one time where two legs are definitely better than four.
Biped won’t win any awards for its graphics, sound, or the half dozen lines of dialogue that comprise its plot, but it will win you over with its control scheme and entertaining gameplay loop.
Biped is a simple idea but executed with as much charm as Next could possibly muster. If you’ve ever wanted to save the world but the T800 was just a bit to shoot first and ask questions later, grab a buddy and try out Biped.
Biped, with its cute, wide-eyed robots that look like neon Fisher Price toys, lures you into a false sense that you’re in for an easy ride, when in fact you’re in for a surprisingly deep and challenging action-puzzler.
As far as challenging co-op adventures go, Biped is one of the best. So, if you enjoy adorable 3D platformers, playing with a friend, and a solid amount of challenge then you're sure to fall in love with this couple of robotic chums.
I went back to try co-op and realized that more than half of the game hadn't been shown to me. I could see plenty of players simply never realizing those levels are there. This would be a shame as Biped has a lot to offer, but you have to know where to look, and you'll need a friend.
Biped is a unique co-op physics puzzler that has some wonderfully original ideas. A fascinating control scheme equally frustrates and delights, though it's absolutely essential in providing puzzle mechanics that you won't find anywhere else. It's just a shame that those ideas haven't been pushed, refined and developed a little more.
It's all good fun while it lasts, with some genuinely clever design, but you can wrap it up pretty fast. If you want something quick and fuss free to play with a pal, though, Biped is a charming little game worth trying.
Biped is a short and simple game with interesting mechanics based on stick manipulation. It is great to play with children and will allow you to have fun for a few bright hours, which is not bad, given the democratic price tag.

Biped is a lovely co-op game that's bursting with unique challenges and obstacles to overcome. It's fun both on your own or with a friend locally, and despite the fact there's not a tonne of meat on its bones, the game nevertheless displays a level of polish and charm that's rarely found in smaller titles such as this. Definitely one to keep an eye on if you're after a fun co-op experience, but be warned that it's more limited in scope than you might expect.
Even with these nicks it's nethertheless a lovely cooperative experience that seems to be perfect for right now, as we're all trapped in our little pockets of the world.
There’s certainly fun to be had with a mate/partner/postman in Biped, but there’s very little here to have you playing for any more than a weekend. Once the levels are complete there’s the odd unlock that doesn’t justify prioritising Biped over the likes of Jackbox or Overcooked. If you’re on your own you’ll find little joy in ploughing your way through the adjusted solo campaign, which is more infuriating than infatuating.
