Piloting a spaceship by yourself is already difficult, but doing so with four people at once is even trickier. In co-op arcade shooter Super Space ____, each player controls one of your shared ship’s turrets, blasting incoming waves of asteroids. That being said, every shot you take propels your ship in the opposite direction, meaning you’ll need to work together if you don’t want to haphazardly crash into floating space debris.

Players can’t simply shoot their turrets willy-nilly since, thanks to Newton’s Third Law of physics, each shot will also propel your shared ship in the opposite direction. The game’s unique core co-op mechanic was built specifically with couches and public spaces in mind.
