Up front: Tiny Brains is better with friends. You can play alone, but I can guarantee you’re not going to have as much fun.
In Tiny Brains, you’re play as lab animals with…odd augmentations. One can push things with its mind, another pulls, a third creates ice platforms, and the fourth can switch places with an object—say, if it’s behind bars.
It's a neat idea that works well in co-op, and the overall "animals-in-a-cage" aesthetic of the game is phenomenal. But the puzzles aren’t very challenging, and switching between animals in single player is a chore.
Round up a group, sit in your living room, and prepare for some old-fashioned couch co-op. That’s how you’ll get the most from Tiny Brains.
