OverviewOverview

Chariot is a co-op platform game where you haul around a wheeled Chariot, to the end of each level. Pushing, pulling or dragging with ropes, you need to use the real physics of the game to solve puzzles and time jumps to get the heavy object to the destinations.

The Chariot contains the remains of the king, who's last wishes were to be buried in peace. The game is best played with a partner, although you can play it on your own. It's a unique combination of puzzles and action while having an old-school platforming feel like Rainbow Islands or Bubble Bobble.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

ESRB EVERYONE with Mild Fantasy Violence.
 
This game has been rated PEGI 3.


Skill Rating: This game is enjoyed by 6-12 year-olds as it's a good match for their ability and maturity. This is a game about team work, so an older player can help a younger person progress. You do need enough timing and dexterity to contribute to the pulling and pushing of the chariot so super young players may find it frustrating.
 
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.
