Chariot

Chariot is a cooperative running and jumping game where you work with another player to haul a wheeled Chariot to the end of each level. Pushing, pulling or dragging with ropes, you need to use the real physics of the game to solve puzzles and time jumps to get the heavy objects to their destinations. It stands out for the ingenious ways you need to get the chariot where it needs to be, and how you must work together to achieve this.

The Chariot contains the remains of the king, whose last wishes were to be buried in peace. The game is best played with a partner, although you can play it on your own. It's a unique combination of puzzles and action while having an old-school platforming feel.

The result is a game where communication between players is as important as being quick at pressing buttons. It is possible to play on your own, but it really comes to life when there is another person you can coordinate different moves and strategies with.

Good to know

Insights to ensure your child's gaming experience remains safe and enjoyable

Internet Matters Recommends

Review difficulty level

Some children might feel frustrated with different game levels or obstacles. Talk to them about recognising when it's time to take a break and turn their attention somewhere else. Often, when they come back relaxed, they're more likely to find success.

Master skills together

Some platform games require a lot of skill and combination movements, which can be frustrating to master. For younger players, set time aside to help them learn and practise the skills.

Build resilience

Platform games can promote perseverance. Encourage children to "try, try again" until they succeed while taking regular breaks.

Skill level age

Suggested by Family Gaming Database

6+

This is a game about team work, so an older player can help a younger person progress. You do need enough timing and dexterity to contribute to the pulling and pushing of the chariot so super young players may find it frustrating.
