Join us for another quickie, as we take a look at Marooners on Xbox One.
Trying to remember the objective, or if you’re even alive, as play jumps back and forth leads to memorable moments as players meet their untimely ends amidst the confusion.
Does it support couch co-op?
In theory, Marooners lets you blend both local and online multiplayer, but the fiddly nature of setting up the former combined with the small player base of the latter means your only real option for a decent match is finding several other friends who own the game and organising some online mayhem.
For an idea of the type of fun to be had with that setup, check out our let’s play and see how we handled Marooners’ madness.
Failing that, there are bots to help make up numbers, but they negate both the challenge and humorous moments human opposition offer.
Would you recommend it?
Given the game’s only $9.99/€9.99/£7.99, yes, we would (with a caveat). There’s a good time to be had in Marooners, provided you can scrape together a few online friends to squeeze it out.
