OverviewOverview

Ultimate Chicken Horse is a running and jumping game where you play different farmyard animals trying to get to the end of the level. The twist is that it's you and your friends who build the levels as you play, placing deadly traps before trying to reach the end of the level. The challenge is to make a level that you can complete but your friends can't.

There are 15 levels with unique gameplay features that act as a starting point to build and share your own custom levels. As well as the platforms and hazards you can customize rules and game modes.
