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.
Our examiner, Jo Robertson, first checked Chariot 3 years ago. It was re-examined by Andy Robertson and updated 5 months ago.
