About This Game

Animal Rivals is a classic Party Game up to 4 players locally!

Grab your friends, pick up some gamepads and fight! There can be only one ruler!

The players will have a chance to play as different funny animals, made in the grotesque way like the 80s and 90s TV shows, that fight for the Animalonia's throne.

Each animal has his own desires and reasons to fight and uses their own way of fighting. But the tournament itself is not easy – contenders need to use their speed, cleverness and intelligence.

Animal Rivals is perfect game for 4 players, that love to compete locally, just like in classic party games.

"Vojtaz" playing Animal Rivals:

Game presents a uniqe art style mixing the cartoonish looks and satire approach. So both the old and young gamers will find something for themselves. Great and healthy competition, challenges and fun are what Animal Rivals is!

The story in short:

King Bryan inherited the throne... you can say by accident. And for a long time he ruled the Kingdom just because the lazy and well prospering animals didn’t care about politics. Years have passed as fast as new budget cuts were appearing. But what struck the animals in the Kingdom was the reform of public media. Bigger license fee?! Oh, we will not tolerate that! But thankfully there was a law, or maybe a so called a hole in law, that let any animal challenge current ruler. The only detail, that the cat Leonidas didn’t notice was the fact that it was in fact an open tournament. So it wasn’t long before more contenders appeared to claim the throne for their own reasons.
So it’s time to sharpen your claws and fangs, prepare your hair and nail – the fight is about to Begin!

• 4 player fun - play solo or with friends!

• Arcade mode with story for every character - why do they fight? is there a masked crusader? is there a mob boss? Find out!

Runner – the name says it all – run as fast as you can to the finish line! But beware of the traps on the stage!
