Overview

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.

 
This game is good if you want to compete on the couch, make video games or play with people on different systems.

Ratings

Rated PEGI 3 for very mild violence in a child-like, pixelated or abstract setting. When the own character is hit by a hazard he falls down with crosses in his eyes. It is not possible to attack each other. There are no elements that could disturb the cheerful child-friendly atmosphere of this game.

ESRB EVERYONE 10+ for fantasy violence.

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.

These games can play a big part in raising children to be magnanimous in victory and generous in defeat. Kids love competing online, but the games here focus on battling in the same room.

These games are a good way to extend the list of friends and family that you can play with. It also makes it less critical which system you have in your home, even if your friends have a different one.
