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.

Skill RatingThis 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.
