Play OverviewPlay Overview

Pico Park (2016) is a collaborative puzzle game for up to 10 players where you traverse levels using one another to solve puzzles. It's a game about communication and physics as players work to position themselves to bridge a gap, use ropes to hang off ledges or unlock keys. Games are often about teamwork, but rarely with this many people. Combine this with the competitive party challenges and different game modes and you have a stand-out game for families.

Each player controls one of the brightly-coloured characters, who can move left and right, jump, and collect keys. As you progress through each of the 48 primary levels, you need to work together to cross vast chasms, unlock doors, push walls and activate switches to clear the stage. In this way, you discover that your simple abilities can be combined to take on seemingly insurmountable hurdles.

A variety of extra levels and game modes provide different styles of play, from an Endless Mode, where you compete to last the longest in a Flappy Bird-style stage, to battle modes, where you don't use attacks and blocks but instead vie to win wacky party games, like being the highest when the time runs out or covering as much of the screen with your colour as possible.

The result is a deeply collaborative game that requires you to work as a team to create ambitious and experimental strategies to overcome the diverse challenges you face.
