  • Looks and sounds great.
  • Wide range of skills and teammates makes for surprisingly deep puzzles
  • Highly addictive once you've mastered the basics


  • Linearity means it may not have the lifespan of some roguelikes


A great looking puzzler with smart mechanics, The Nightmare Cooperative is a fine example of the roguelike formula, expertly tuned for mobile devices.

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.
