    Ultimate Chicken Horse does everything it tries to do very well, but a few quibbles keep it from greatness.

Despite a few bugs here and there, it is a wonderful game with a great concept that has not been seen in any game to date. The gameplay is never repetitive and always has something new to throw at you. It is certainly a game that I would recommend anyone who likes platforming pick up now. If you don't own a PC, a port is coming to switch, Xbox one and PS4 around summer this year, if not already by the time you read this. Ultimate Chicken Horse sets up a whole new potential genre of game. Expand

Each time you play it is different, and provides hours of fun from such a simple concept. I hope to see more levels, customisation and game modes too but i've already lost 100 hours in this game with mates, so there's still plenty of fun to be had.
    A new gen in the gaming industry that i hope dozens of people check out. Hours of fun and comedy to be had.
    This game is near perfect, but i'll round my score up to 10 anyway due to how much fun i've been having. If the game adds more characters, levels, game modes, ways to save levels, create actual maps, gives the option to put more people per game then this game is utterly and completely perfect.

    As for now, 9.5/10

I love the idea of getting to create the landscape that you traverse with others in real time. The characters are fun, the learning curve isn't steep whatsoever so it's a lot of fun to play knowing all skill types will have a good time playing. The level design is usually pretty simple, but overall neat.

    I recommend this game wholeheartedly, especially to anyone looking for a fun party game that can appeal to a large crowd.

If you are looking for a great local party game for up to four people I definitely recommend this one, I know my friends love it. Expand

    Ultimate Chicken Horse is a brilliant casual multiplayer game that maximizes its replayability due to its emphasis on fast, creative gameplayUltimate Chicken Horse is a brilliant casual multiplayer game that maximizes its replayability due to its emphasis on fast, creative gameplay with a heavy dose of sabotage and dexterity requirements.

    The object of every "round" is the same; get to the end of the level before your opponents do. As the levels are relatively empty, it initially seems like this will be a boring task. However, before each attempt, each player will simultaneously add a platform, contraption, obstacle, etc. to the level, and things get interesting QUICKLY. Now, you have to dodge flaming tennis balls, carefully time jumps over platforms, and be careful not to slip on the ice as you frantically scramble to the finish. UCH is competitive platforming as its most chaotic.

    On top of the gameplay, the game has an infectious funk soundtrack, and the sound effects are silly and endearing. The game also has an obligatory plethora of unlockables, which include costumes for your farm animals and levels, each with an interesting, unique built-in mechanic.

    Ultimate Chicken Horse = creative, competitive chaos at its finest.

It is essentially a platformer with a sandbox aspect: at each round, everyUltimate Chicken Horse is a very original and fun party game. It is essentially a platformer with a sandbox aspect: at each round, every player gets to pick an item to be placed in the 2D map to make the goal easier or harder to reach. Obviously, the purpose is to reach the goal yourself and preventing your opponents from doing so.

    Possibilities are nearly unlimited (even though the set of available items isn't huge) as long as you have imagination, and each map has, by default, its own features to make the goal trickier tor each. Simple but great level design there.

    Items are of very unequal interest. There is little balance among them, but it also adds up to the spice of the game to be able to grab the best items before competitors. Adding up to the fun are the characters' animations, sounds and dances to taunt opponents, simply hilarious.

    A really fun party game, can't get bored of it. And kudos for making it cross-play with Switch players, works like a charm !
