Ultimate Games S.A. announced the release of Chicken Rider for Nintendo Switch and the digital distribution on Nintendo eShop started last week from May 17. The Chicken Rider is the title of an endless runner genre, which advantages are its dynamic gameplay and light cartoon style.
Chicken Rider was created by the Polish studio Red Dev, and Ultimate Games S.A. is the publisher for the Nintendo Switch version. Last year Chicken Rider was also released for PC/Mac (Steam) and mobile devices (iOS and Android).
The game belongs to the endless runner genre, where the player moves forward all the time and it is not possible to stop. In relation to this, Chicken Rider has been based on intuitive, single-key control.
The main character is a polar bear riding on a chicken, which is fighting for the freedom of other animals. Differentiated challenges and locations are awaiting players. The game is also spiced up with special power-ups (e.g. squirrel commando), differentiated outfits and “mounts”.
As the creators explain, their goal was to combine easy to master and addictive gameplay with a characteristic, cartoon-style setting. There are also numerous humorous elements and funny animations throughout the game.
The main features of Chicken Rider:
- Dynamic and exciting gameplay – it is impossible to stop;
- 7 different chickens (“mounts”);
- simple and intuitive control;
- 8 different locations (including Zone 51 and outer space);
- Over 70 different outfits;
