Co-petitive is a new game play style that was created for use in the flagship two player computer game Platitude© created by Synergy Games©. Co-petitive game play is an ambiguous style, where its neither co-operative or competitive between the two players. The players can decide whether to help or hinder each other in the aim to complete the level.
Co-petitive game play: An example from the game is being able to toggle gravity for the other player, this would allow player 1 to turn gravity off so that player 2 can get to a button to help player 1 get to the next part of the level. However once up there player 2 could go on to win and not help player 1 at all.
