"After talking about the co-op in PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe for the PSP, it's now time to talk a little bit about the two player mode in PixelJunk Shooter which we hadn't mentioned before.
In true PixelJunk fashion we have made the game co-op, so get a friend around, grab an extra controller and anyone can just dive right on in. We've tried to make co-op as de-stressed as possible, so even if your player's ship gets hit by something or overheats and starts crashing towards the ground, you can pop out your extendible hook thing (no official name for this yet - "Grabber" perhaps?) and grab your friend (he's a bit heavy tho, so watch out), then you can carry him to the nearest pool of water and dunk him in to restore his health. If you don't manage to grab him in time, he'll just re-spawn near you and you'll be docked a life."
