Never Breakup Critic Reviews

An interesting concept with a mixed execution. Never Breakup has some fun puzzles and mechanics, but navigating the stages is made tricky thanks to imprecise controls and a top down perspective.

Never Breakup is an attempt at a co-op game without the excitement most party games bring. The rope doesn't add much to the experience, it's slow paced at the best of times, and it lacks polish. If you're absolutely starved for a tethered-together title, you may enjoy it briefly, but this isn't a party game I'd recommend.

You can't help but coming away from Never Breakup with mixed feelings. The concept remains novel, and there are a number of stages to make the experience feel meaty, even without a narrative. While the player can get used to the wobbly controls, the lack of variety in the co-op challenges - and the sense that a number of areas don't seem to be designed with the co-op concept in mind - robs the game of any fun. It isn't a terrible co-op title, but you're better served by going with other co-op experiences first.

Never Breakup may not be in the top echelon of co-op games but it's certainly a fun indie that'll make you and a pal laugh.
