Tick Tock: A Tale for Two is an eerie cooperative puzzle game for two players. Each player needs a copy of the game on their own mobile device (phone or tablet) to play. You can also play cross-platform with a Nintendo Switch or a computer (PC or Mac).
Average playtime: 2.5h
You and your friend are trapped in a mystical clockwork world. As time ebbs away you must solve increasingly complex puzzles to escape. Cooperation is key as neither of you have the full picture! Play on two devices, local or remotely, all you need is a voice connection.

"a fantastic, beautiful game that can bring you closer to your friends and loved ones" - Coin-Drop

My wife and I played this and were done in 157min. It’s well made and a lot of fun. The only reason I give it a 4 instead of 5, is because it’s so short. You’re done quickly, and considering you have to pay $3+ for each device, we were expecting more.

Fine until game glitched and couldn’t solve puzzle. Had to restart.

My wife and I, much like the other reviewer, are HUMONGOUS escape room fanatics. I even work for a company making mystery games. Tick Tock is so clever and innovative, I was continuously in a state of enjoyment, even during the moments that had us scrambling for answers. The presentation of this game was flawless, the story was unique, the challenges were hair-pullingly complicated at times (in a very very good way), and I greatly hope this team is able to release more games in this style. I’ll definitely be eager to download it!Thanks!

Still wondering about some of the smaller numbers in the jars... if that true then that’s some amazing teamwork! Have a notepad ready and lots of patience took me 166 min to complete, a test in communication and a great way to pass an hour or two!
