Roguelikes are everywhere at the moment. You can't fire up iTunes without clapping eyes on a Dungelot or a Wayward Souls peeping out of the milky whiteness.

However, as Pocket Gamer's Craig Granell discovered, The Nightmare Cooperative shouldn't be dismissed as yet another tile-based puzzler.

Yes, it's filled with randomised dungeons and chance encounters and lots and lots of death. But there's a clever team dynamic at play that elevates it beyond the average swipe-powered puzzle adventure.

Watch the video above to hear the full review.
