Anyone looking for a new party game to play with friends has to check out Ultimate Chicken Horse. To start with how can a game with a name like this not capture your attention? This is a game that is not meant to be taken seriously, but what grabbed my attention (in addition to the title of course) was that this is a party game that is about 2D platforming.
Who You Gonna Be?
I have to start by saying that while you can play this by yourself and online with strangers. The real fun from playing Ultimate Chicken Horse is playing with people you know either by your side with local co-op or online. The trash-talking and laughing makes this awesome for a game night with friends. You have to pick one of many different animal characters, I always go for the elephant, but there are more such as a chicken, horse, lizard, and so on.
A Box Of Goodies
The way the game is structured is that you and your friends will select one of many different stages. There are a few game modifiers that you can select, but for the most part, getting to the flag first is the goal of the game. The thing is, levels are not complete, and at the start of a level a box will appear with items that you can use to help you get to the flag and also make life difficult for your friends. These items are limited so the first person to grab a specific item can only use it so even before a level starts, this keeps you on your toes.
I Need To Win, But I Also Have To Screw Over My Friends
The real challenge of Ultimate Chicken Horse is that no matter the items you manage to grab at the start of the level. You need to make it so that you can get to the flag. At the same time, you want to make it as hard for your friends as possible. You can use various traps to do this and if you manage to kill your friends with the traps, you do not only give yourself a better chance of getting to the flag first, you also get extra points at the end of the level. You do not want to make it too easy to get to the flag as this makes it easy for your buddies too!
The Levels Are A Character Too
This game has a lot of charm to it and a huge part of the charm comes from the various levels. Each level has its own theme such as Metal Plant, Iceberg, and Old Mansion to name just a few. While each level in Ultimate Chicken Horse has a different theme, each level also has something that gives it a twist. For example, Pyramid has a giant sphinx that tries to crush you as you make your way to the flag. The Crumbling Bridge level has a bridge that falls apart the more you jump on it which gives you an extra option when it comes to screwing your friends over!
Did You Draw This?
I love the simplistic art style that they went for with this game. Just one look and you know that this is a game that is all about having a fun time.
It does not take itself too seriously at all and that is a huge reason why I have had so much fun with it. It looks like someone used a basic art program to make all the level and character designs and I actually mean that as a compliment.
When I play games with my friends and we are stuck for what to play, 9/10 one of us will bring up Ultimate Chicken Horse. It is a game that always gets us laughing, arguing, and then laughing again. The game is fun and they are fantastic at giving extra content, for example as of me writing this they added in a bunch of stuff for Easter that was fun. If you are looking for a game that is fun to play with your friends either in the same room or online, you cannot go wrong with this.
