Tunche is a fighting game where you battle our way through horizontal levels that are different each time you play. It features comic style environments and characters, each with their own skills and special abilities. The goal is to defeat bosses to progress and unravel the story of a mysterious Amazonian jungle, although the fun is the brawling, point scoring and pulling off combat combos along the way.

Choose one of the five unique characters: Rumi, the sorceress, Pancho the musician, Qaru the bird boy, Nayra the warrior & Hat Kid from the highly acclaimed A Hat In Time. To overcome the evil beasts of Amazonian forests you will have to learn the skills and ultimate abilities that will take you further through the story with each play through.

The story features elements of Peruvian legends and folklore. Gameplay centres around an aggressive fighting style where high risk attacks can yield higher rewards. The fights take place across four different worlds, each with their own set of enemies. The worlds are procedurally generated, so every journey is different.

This game has been rated PEGI 3.

Skill Rating

7+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game.


There are no difficulty options, and some sections of the game can become quite difficult, especially if you are playing on your own. A comprehensive tutorial introduces all the controls and gameplay mechanics one by one in a simple and easy-to-understand way, where you can practice each move as it is introduced.

While the text throughout is high contrast, it is often very small and can subsequently be difficult to read.

As the game is played on a 2D plane, navigating through the jungle is always relatively simple. While most enemies are quite large, some can be difficult to distinguish from the rest of the screen as they can be of a similar colour and shade. The same can be said of your character.

You can return at any time to your base camp, where your progress will be saved and you can upgrade your character.
