We are thrilled to announce a pretty HUGE content update for Ultimate Chicken Horse, available now on Switch, PC, XboxOne and PS4! We named it the Transformidable Update, because it is both transformative and formidable, and we like puns a lot.
It seemed a bit unfair that only Horse had an alternative look as Zebra, so the new friends below have also showed up! These exotic creatures will show up as outfit unlocks in the game, which you will get as you play local or online games.
Your Party Box can now give you the brand new Jetpack or Jetpack Dispenser. Pick one up, and you’ll be flying through the course like a rocket! Just be careful not to bump your head on hazards…
In case you thought Ultimate Chicken Horse wasn’t wacky enough, we added 20 modifiers (okay not a million) for you to play with. With all these modifiers, you can make crazy combos and even make custom challenge levels using specific modifiers. When you create a level and save it online in Challenge Mode, all players will have to use those modifiers to try to beat your level!
Gravity: Changing the laws of physics has never been this easy.
Jump Strength, Multi Jump, and Walljumps Off: Tweak the jump strength, give yourself double or triple-jumps, and turn off wall-jumps entirely to play like a certain childhood platforming plumber.
Player Collisions: You asked for it! No really, the community has been asking for it forever. If screwing your friends over is your thing, this modifier is for you. It can also be helpful though in levels that might be impossible without a friend or two!
Move Speed and Game Speed: Play in slow-mo to practice those precision jumps, or play in hyper-speed and see if you can keep up!
Frictionless: This is what it would feel like if it was always -40°C.
Player collisions can be helpful!
Weird and Fun Modifiers
Ghost: Players come back as ghosts and can mess around with the level until others reach the afterlife
Zombie (shown to the left): Players come back as zombies with limited movement
Dead Hop: Players can hop around after they’ve met their fate, try it out to find out more!
Character Size (shown below): From “Way Tiny” to “Way Huge”!
Dance Invincibility: Invincible when you dance, just like real life!
Jetpack Mode: Just like the item that you can pick up, but forever.
Moving Block Speed: For even crazier, better timed contraptions
Projectile Rate of Fire: How fast can a crossbow shoot?
Projectile Speed: How fast can an arrow fly?
Mirror Level: Flip the level about the horizontal or vertical axis
Doomsday Meteors: Flaming tennis ball meteors fall from the sky, hitting animals in their path!
Doomsday Lava: The floor is lava… and it’s rising.
Grant each player a number of lives which can be used to respawn either automatically or by holding the Retry button. These respawns can be on a per-round basis or per-match basis, which can lead to some deeper strategy about when players choose to use them, or help give a handicap to players who are just learning.
Minor Features (if you can call these minor)
And that’s not all! Here’s a few more features we’re adding:
Ability to both rotate AND flip most blocks by pressing Sprint + Rotate when you are placing them. Many players have been asking for this for a long time, as it allows the creation of levels that are symmetrical, timed, and well-designed!
Paintbrush tool and adjustable Crumbling Block damage for level-building in Free Play
New Party Box options in the Game Rules: Disabled, Auto-Pick, and Double Party Box for more than 2 players
Random level platform in the Treehouse
We also made more bug fixes and quality of life improvements than we can count. For the full list, please see the official Change Log. There you’ll find anything that we’ve updated that doesn’t involve brand new features like the things above.
We’re really glad to introduce this update to you, and we’re extremely grateful for all the support you’ve shown us over the years.
