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.
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!

Animal Rivals is an action-packed 4-player party game, and it sure is a wild ride. You can play it alone, but the real fun comes from playing with friends. You'll be tasked with completing an assortment of different party games to see which player comes out on top, and the games themselves are varied and a lot of fun. Graphically, this game is bold and nice to look at, and the music is a good match. There are a handful of bugs and you might find the gameplay boring after a while, but if you've got friends to play with, then this game's certainly worth a shot.
Animal Rivals is a party game that can be played by up to four players locally. The game has each player selecting a poor looking animal and then playing against each other in different game modes, with many of the modes revolving around platforming challenges with poor controls, hit detection, and dull looking areas filled with traps or drops, other modes might have you attempting to pick up and move objects to different spots. The game modes are boring in addition to the poor control and unfortunate need to try to get everyone playing on the same PC which already makes it unlikely that most people will be able to get three people to play with them while also getting a controller for everyone. Even for the low price the game isn't worth getting and there are much more enjoyable local multiplayer games that could be played instead.
Animal Rivals is a title that you will like when you have someone to play with, the game shines in multiplayer when to people compete with each other. There are quite a few modes so you will not get bored for quite some time. I really like the fact that the price is laughably low for the amount of fun provided. Try it out, the game is great.
