If you start up a co-op lobby, but have one or two empty spots, the unmanned characters will encourage you (in fairly irritating insults) to switch up and use them, while not actually walking around the map to attack enemies. You can change characters whenever you please, handy for unleashing these special attacks on your foes. Even the characters not being actively used will build up their special meter by automatically throwing snowballs, if you place them in a strategically sound place on the map (think of them as snarky turrets). You'll also want to keep in mind, each character has a slightly different movement speed. As an example, Hyperactive Tweak is faster than fatty Cartman, which changes how fast you collect coins, run to a position to set up more turrets, or how often you accidentally overstep and run straight into a line of enemies.
While playing co-op, your group will share coin resources for building towers. This fiscal challenge makes it necessary to communicate where certain towers should go on the map for maximum efficiency. For instance a laser in a straight line from where enemies have to walk in a straight line to do the most damage, or at least one tower sitting near the back of the level just in case some stray enemies get past your initial defense. If you don't like the placement of a tower, they're easily torn down, and most of their resources (coins) are returned. Pick up the coins, and build in a new place.
Communication isn't just for using resources in South Park: Let's Go Tower Defense. As the levels progress, it will be up to you to make the path that enemies will travel down. You manually build walls in the most zany zig-zag pattern imaginable to slow down the waves of enemies. However, it's usually a good idea to have one person lay the maze, while the other sets up the defensive towers. This will give you more time to think about what you want to do before the waves start to show up, and let you suggest to one another what works and what doesn't.
Fans of the series will appreciate the same humor, characters, and political incorrectness that made the show popular. Tower Defense fans will enjoy the challenges presented by the different enemies, boss battles, and the change-up with more action with their characters.
The Co-Op Experience: Team up in traditional tower defense gameplay. Players can work together to place defensive structures as well as throw snowballs at enemies.
