BFF or Die is an award winning tactical-action-puzzler for up to 4 players. When four alien flunkouts from the Intergalactic Time Academy go joyriding in a faulty ChronoCrosser, they soon find themselves trapped in Ancient Egypt, with nothing to defend themselves but cunning, cooperation and camaraderie!

To avoid the dangers that lurk in the labyrinths all players need to work together! Each member of the team controls a different ability - lights, decoys, teleportation and more; teammates must combine their skills strategically if they're going to escape alive!

Fun for one, funner for four. It's the ultimate buddy cop movie! It's no child left behind! It's... BFF or Die!

Local Co-op

1-4 players.
Control pads or keyboard control.
Choice of shared control pads (two players per pad) or one pad per player.
