I love a good two-player game, and the husband and I recently had a lot of fun with Pixeljunk Shooter for the PS3.
You’re on a rescue mission to save scientists who are trapped in a winding cave full of burning-hot lava and icy ice. You have to strategically cool the lava and melt the ice to blast through without accidentally killing too many of the people you’re trying to save!
The art is simple and beautiful, the controls are simple and very fluid, and before we knew it, it was 2 am and even though I could barely keep my eyes open, I wanted to complete just one more level. It’s possible to play by yourself, but I imagine it’s way more fun as a team.
