Last month we posted about how One Man Left would be bringing some sort of multiplayer mode to their popular arcade game Tilt to Live [$2.99/Lite/HD]. Since then we’ve learned a few more details about this mode, and now have a video of it in action. This multiplayer update will involve cooperative play inside the ¡Viva la Turret! expansion pack which hit the game back in December.

Dubbed ¡Viva la Co-op!, players can connect locally via WiFi or Bluetooth with one person manning the turret while the other navigates the danger-laden play field collecting jewels to increase the collective score and also delivering pickups that will refresh the turret for  your buddy when it has run out of steam. These roles can be reversed during a game depending on who gets to the turret first after one has been exhausted.

The ¡Viva la Co-op! expansion has already been submitted to Apple and is just awaiting approval, which One Man Left hopes will happen before the end of the month. This multiplayer expansion has also been hinted at for the iPad version of the game Tilt to Live HD, which just received the ¡Viva la Turret! update earlier this month, although we haven't heard anything official and it would likely take some tweaking to get things right on the larger screen. Drop by the thread in our forums for discussion on Tilt to Live and keep your eyes on your update button for the ¡Viva la Co-op! expansion that should hit in the next week or so.

    Wow, these developers are terrible. Local wifi only? Learn to make a multiplayer component to your game. Scrubs these days.

    normally i look out for the updates. but i dont have anyone but the wife to play this with and she doesnt care much for this game. who told the devs that we wanted co-op? couldve had 2 or more single player modes with the resources used to cultivate this.

      Glad I'm not the only person feeling this way. Yeah its awesome that there is coop no but none of my friends are really into iOS gaming like I am. Oh well back to Lego HP I guess :)

  • hi

    the only reason they did co-op was to make people have another reason to buy there IAP

    What they need to add is the option to disable the Turret weapon in other modes. The Turret especially disrupts the flow of the game in Code Red mode.

      There is this option. It's the little checkbox with a turret next to it. Uncheck it.

      • Aviatora

        Where? I've look in all menus and see no option whatsoever in which I can deselect the turret.

        Under Code Red and Normal modes there is a little box with a crosshairs (the turret logo) and the word ON. Tap it and it will say OFF.

        I'm not calling you a liar or anything, but I honestly can't see any such option. I'm playing on the ipod touch version. I'm starting to think that perhaps you're playing on the ipad version which may be slightly different (I think it had an update more recently than the ipod one).

        Ah... That's altogether possible.
