I found the same thing again this time. It's basically a heist game with super simple controls. You move with one analog stick and use special items with the A button. That's it.
And each character gets a special power. Maybe you can see further than your other partners. Or unlock locks faster. Or knock out guards if you sneak up on them. It adds variety and pushes you to work as a team.
I really think this game was designed to be played with a full team of 4 people. It's an interesting premise when I'm playing it single player but I feel like the game would truly shine if I had 4 people to play local co-op with.
I'm going to put this one away in my backcatalog and keep it in mind for local multiplayer in the future.
