Experience constantly changing game modes in Move or Die a game designed for the party game niche. Offering a fast paced game for friendly competition all of these modes revolve around players not stopping for an extended period of time.

Move or Die opts for the approach that many other successful party games go for which is a simple design and constantly changing situations to keep players engaged. Move or Die achieves this by giving players control of their custom blob like creature with their abilities limited to moving and jumping through the multi-level game maps.

To add another element to the equation your health bar will quickly drain if you stand still for too long, regenerating when you run around the map. Mechanically the game is played from a 2D perspective with platforming being central to all the mini games, calling on quick reactions but also countering the moves that your friends make.

Consistent features across mini game maps include red X boxes which spell instant death, blocks that once activated will disappear for a small time and blocks that are invisible until touched by a player. The mini games make great use of these features with the pool of available games agreed on by players before starting.

Game modes include Block Back which has players bouncing each other into the aforementioned instant kill red boxes, Hat Chase where players fight to wear a hat for the longest period of time, Colour Craze which has you painting the map with your colour, Speed Run which is a traditional race and countless others. Each of these is designed to be played for around 20 seconds.

The design of Move or Die is perfect for your next party couch game but with the solid online functionality and offline practice modes you’ll still never be without a game.

Summary:

  • Fast paced game ideal for couch gameplay with 3 other players.
  • Large list of game modes that change every 20 seconds.
  • Basic controls keeps the game accessible.
  • Practice offline or find a game online.
  • Available on Windows, Mac and Linux.
