Inspired by the schoolyard basketball game H.O.R.S.E. and the game of chicken, Ultimate Chicken Horse is a party platformer where you and your friends build the level as you play, placing deadly traps before trying to reach the end of the level. If you can make it but your friends can't, you score points! Play locally or online* with your animal buddies, experiment with a wide variety of platforms and find new ways to mess with your friends.
Ultimate Chicken Horse has four game modes. In Party Mode, players choose from a handful of randomized blocks to place then try to complete the level. Creative Mode allows players to pick from the entire inventory of blocks and traps before running the level. Free Play Mode allows players to design levels from the full suite of objects, which they can save locally or share online. And finally Challenge Mode will have players competing online for fastest completion times on community made levels. For those who don't have enough controllers for everyone in local play, try the Shared Controller Couch which allows players to take turns playing in Creative Mode.
