Ultimate Chicken Horse

Choose an animal and run through a level with dangerous obstacles—all placed by your friends.

“Ultimate Chicken Horse” is a 2D platformer with a unique twist. It’s still about running around and jumping over traps and objects of all sizes, but there's more to it than that.

Each round starts with a building phase. All players receive random obstacles and need to place them inside a pre-existing world. Afterwards everyone has to run through the freshly produced level.

But wait, If anyone can place obstacles, doesn’t it end up in total chaos? Well, it can, and (at some point) it definitely will. However, since you need to finish the course yourself, it’s not advisable to make it impossible to do so.

“Ultimate Chicken Horse” doesn’t include fighting mechanics, it’s all about level-making and running, which is great. The game feels lovingly made and has a lot of humor. It’s an excellent party game.

Why you should play it:

  1. It’s a unique mix of level-making and competitive gameplay.
  2. Includes multiple game modes and a lot of interesting obstacles.
  3. The game has charming visuals and lovely characters. Also, there’s a dedicated dance button.

About us

Why we’ve created “Couch Coop Favorites”

We love couch coop games. Nothing beats the joy of sitting in the same room, playing some fun games and experiencing the reactions of your friends—especially at the moment, when you’re more often at home with your partner, family members or roommates. Sure, online multiplayer modes can be fun, too, but couch coop modes have always been the best type of multiplayer games.

If you are like us, you play local multiplayer games on a regular basis, either with your kids or your friends. While most couch coop games can be played over and over again, you may want to try something new from time to time. So, where do you find interesting, new titles? Sometimes you get great recommendations from friends, but most of the time you need to do your own research.

Most game stores like Steam, PSN or Microsoft Store offer categories for local multiplayer games. However, they either feature just a handful of new games or list thousands of entries. Websites for couch coop games do exist, but they try to list them all, even the not-so-good ones. Gaming related blogs and magazines sometimes write about couch coop games, but it’s not their main subject. You probably don’t want to search on the internet for hours and hunt for hidden gems. You want to find great, new games without the hassle. That’s why we’ve came up with the idea for “Couch Coop Favorites”.

We’ve created lists with handpicked couch coop games—filterable by platform, store and relevant features. On this website you can quickly find new games. Save time on researching, spend more time with your friends and family.

Who we are

We are Tabea und Patrick, both in our mid-20s and from Northern Germany. We have a deep passion for couch coop games and did a lot of research on the subject in our student days. We don’t know all titles, but we certainly know a lot of excellent games for different platforms and audiences. We regularly play games, but we still identify as casual gamers. We believe that not every gaming related site needs to target hardcore gamers.

Our mission is simple: We want to bring joy to people looking for good couch coop games and we want to support indie developers, too.

How we select games

All games listed here are handpicked by us. We’re not paid by developers to feature their games. If we list a game, we genuinely like it. It’s that simple. No ads, no affiliate links, just good games.
