Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is a couch co-op game in which you navigate from planet to planet in order to recover lost life forms. Read our Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime review!
The game is all about relationships and teamwork and being able to work in harmony while in space to be able to solve puzzles and save an assortment of animals from their predicaments. Your teamwork skills in this game will be tested either in single player with an AI co-op partner, in the form of a pet, or in full co-op mode with a friend or a significant other.
The ship you’re maneuvering has a lot of stations in it, since each station has a different purpose. For instance, one is for moving the ship, another is for firing up the upper turret, another is to show the map. You and your partner must synchronize your efforts so that the ship reaches its destination while recovering the captive life forms. It’s a fun premise, and you can even play with your kids! I let my daughter once in charge of the ship, only to see her ram into a planet… which is when I awarded her the title of Turret Master, as I realized I had to take care of the navigation.
I love playing with my kids, and since each mission is short, we had several short gameplay bursts right before their bed time. This is definitively a game you want to add to your collection if you’re looking for a fun co-op experience. Even if you’re playing on your own, I’m happy to report that the AI is very good, which is usually not the case for AI companions.
Be sure to give this one a go as it’s worthy of your time and money, especially since it’s currently part of the Flash Sale and available at a considerable discount!
