Coop games like Donkey Kong Country Returns
« on: December 03, 2017, 07:12:01 am »
My daughter and I just finished Donkey Kong Country Returns. We had a lot of fun. She's real young, so she enjoyed "playing". If you never played Coop Donkey Kong Country Returns, there are 2 players, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong. She played Diddy Kong and could climb on Donkey Kongs back. I would do all the moving and she could shoot. So, I was able to navigate the tough jumps and climbs and she could do her part.

It was a good combo for us and we had lots of fun. Is anyone aware of other games we can play that are similar to that kind of coop gameplay?

I belive mario galaxy games have a mechanic where player 2 just does extra stuff while you play as mario. That should work. Also mario oddysey p2 plays as the hat. Then theres dkc tropical freeze. That luigi game on wii u would be good too since player 2 is like immortal.

Sonic 2 also.

But both are terrible in 2 player co op lol

Knuckles chaotix is better.

Said no one ever.

I think Sonic 2/3 is the better bet with P2 helping without impeding progress.

Sonic 2/3 are better games, but the co op was terrible.

Atleast chaotix co op worked well.

Some good suggestions. Definitely will get Tropic Freeze. Didn't realize there was another one out.

How well does it work with a kid who's "real young" ?

Child of Light.  Second player participates but does not impede.

IIRC, a couple of the Mario games on WiiU are similar.  Perhaps Mario Maker and the 2D game?

Beets me I never tried with one who is “real young”

As daft as this may sound the only game I have ever played co op with a kid was DOOM (the original one).

I controlled Doom Guy and the kid did the shooting lol

They enjoyed it loads.
