Description:

In anticipation of the next update (the Elephantastic Update) for Ultimate Chicken Horse, I took a long weekend off work and started working on my own platformer (lightly inspired by Chicken Horse…). The idea was to prototype some of the trap concepts we’d discussed at PreviewLabs, my favourite of these was the idea that the shaft of crossbow bolts could be platforms. It is also much faster paced than the original.
