Top Critic Average
Biped is perfectly suited to the Nintendo Switch, providing plenty of fun for you and a pal, even if it's short-lived.
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 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.
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.
If you’re a fan of clever puzzle-platformers and have a co-op partner who is the same, then Biped is bound to bring you hours of delight.
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.
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 brilliant, if short, experience that will keep you busy on rainy afternoons.
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 is fun solo, but best played with a friend.
