Criteria for Selection

Ultimate Chicken Horse is a platform video game released in 2016 for PC, and on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the following year. It was also released on Nintendo Switch on September 25th, 2018. It’s a multiplayer co-op game.

In the game, players embody various animals – initially, players can choose between a sheep, a raccoon, and of course, the titular chicken and horse. However, additional characters can be unlocked as the game progresses.

At first glance, it may seem like any other platformer where players jump, run, and overcome obstacles to reach the exit and move on to the next level. However, Ultimate Chicken Horse is an entirely different type of game.

Each level starts as a blank slate, so to progress, players must build not only the path (using platforms) but also obstacles to hinder their fellow players. The way elements are added and the scoring itself depends on the chosen game mode. There are four modes to choose from: creative, freeplay, party, and challenge.

Just Shapes & Beats

Release date:2018-05-31
Developer:Berzerk Studio

Just Shapes & Beats is a cooperative game filled with chaos and music. The rules are simple: as we progress through the game, we take the shape of a simple figure and must dodge obstacles (bullets, lasers) appearing in rhythm with the music. Our goal is to reach the end of each level with as little damage as possible.

What connects this game to UCH is primarily the creators’ unconventional approach to the theme. Although inspired by classics of the shoot’em up genre, you won’t find any weapons here. Low spec, modest graphics, excellent music, and multiplayer/co-op gameplay are additional connecting elements.

Key features
  • Hypnotic rhythmic gameplay
  • Challenging gameplay
  • Electronic soundtracks

Pummel Party

Release date:2018-09-20
Developer:Rebuilt Games

The core of this title is a board game where players move across various boards. Our main objective is to collect golden keys. During the game, we can collect various items that, when used correctly, can effectively hinder our opponents.

The game is played in multiplayer mode, which is the main connection to Ultimate Chicken Horse. The main connection, but not the only one, as Pummel Party is just as unpredictable, and the most joy can come from hindering other players during the game!

Key features
  • Availability of mini-games
  • Dangerous terrain
  • Cut-throat gameplay


Release date:2021-09-09
Genre:2D Platformer
Developer:Sbug Games

In Webbed, players control a charming spider lady who sets out on a journey to save her beloved from the clutches of a malevolent bird. Our heroine traverses the forest mainly by swinging on spider webs, she can also pull objects and create bridges with her webs.

The similarity between both games lies primarily in creating your own path from available materials to pave the way to the next levels. Of course, they are also linked by the theme of an animal protagonist.

Key features
  • Use your wit and webs to overcome levels
  • Recruit friends to help you conquer levels
  • Forge your own (literal) paths

Gang Beasts

Release date:2014-08-29

In Gang Beasts, players control characters that look like colorful gelatinous blobs. Our goal is to fight other blobs. Anything goes. We can fight, push them into pits, or lure them into traps. However, we must be careful because the specific physics of the characters, namely their light inertia, complicates the task.

In addition to being available in multiplayer mode like UCH, Gang Beasts is also a game where there are no rules on the way to victory (certainly not fair play).

Key features
  • Multiplayer brawl
  • Funny sound effects
  • Gang fights

Spelunky 2

Release date:2020-09-29
Developer:Mossmouth, BlitWorks

Spelunky 2 is a sequel to the 2008 platformer of the same title. In the game, we play as a likeable spelunker exploring underground tunnels searching for lost parents and, of course, treasures. Besides treasures, players often encounter traps or enemies.

Like Ultimate Chicken Horse, the game offers a multiplayer mode, where we can choose either to compete or cooperate

Key features
  • Vast dynamic world
  • Unique, random challenges
  • Most classic platformer character
