Description

Bear Chuck is a fast and furious platformer/match-three/Angry Birds-esque mashup in a teeth-gnashing versus arena setting! What?! I hear you say? It's certainly very different from everything else you've ever played before. Really.

History

Bear Chuck was my first prototype that was actually taken far enough to run into design problems :) It started as an expression of my love for frantic versus block-matching games, of which there seem to be a huge deficit of in the west - the west, where platformers were extraordinarily popular. So I mashed up those ideas, and the rest is history. Bear Chuck has been shown at the 2013 rAge Expo in South Africa, 2014 A MAZE Berlin, and is still currently in development.

Features

  • Made for elbowing friends on a couch in front of the TV
  • Familiar-yet-new platform game + angry birds gameplay
  • Fast and frantic
  • Make mad skill shots
