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!

Game Modes:

Collector - you will get a random set of items to collect as fast as you can and bring them to your table. It will not be easy as enemies will definitely try to stop you. But you have all the tools you need to win – use your special ability in the right time or pick up a level specific power-up to gain advantage.

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

Catcher – try to catch most of the cannonballs fired by the cannons! But remember – enemies never sleep. Also watch out for the exploding bombs!

Destroyer – every animal has their favorite color – this time they will destroy boxes in that color. Animal with best score wins.

Animal Rivals reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
Full Review with screenshots you can read here: Dreams of Genesis Gaming: Animal Rivals [doggamingsite.wordpress.com] Animal Rivals-multiplayer Casualochka, which was created on the wave of popularity of Gang Beasts, Move or Die, Party Panic and many others. The Developers of this project were the guys from Blue Sunset Games. FIRST IMPRESSION When I first came in the game and, as an ordinary person, did not read the control and the tutorial with the exclamation: "What have I not seen?", proceeded to the game. I've got artificial intelligence on one, two, three. And the optimization wanted to leave the best, but now the review time was shining and I understood that you need to go back and see what the developers have been there for a while. Optimization has improved, and in management was sorted almost immediately. I play on the keyboard, on this I want to warn fellow in misfortune: "Guys, it is very difficult to get used to management, often densely your character does not listen to you and does not jump when you presses the button. I think so proud owners of controllers with this problem and did not come across. ". The Idea, by itself, is already very nenova and widely used by other chic projects that I talked about at the beginning of the review. The Visual series is also not different from global study, but there is in the game, something that made me play and enjoy the discovery of new characters. GAMEPLAY part is quite diverse. If you disassemble the arcade mode in parts, which is needed more for learning and discovering all the characters, their costumes and colors, it is divided into 5 different minimodes. Let's say in one of them you have to run a location with traps for a while, in the other, you have to collect boxes only your colors. Well and eventually there is a decisive mode in which you run at once 7 enemies and try to kill. Your task is to manage to neutralize all of them for a certain time. On the one hand sounds not so difficult, but in reality... They immediately run everything on you and start kicking, from what your character is down, and begins the time of convulsive Clania on the button "Jump". In fact in this mode there is one little secret, you need to raise and throw in the rivals boxes that are so successfully scattered around the location. After winning you will be told the story of your chosen character and opens a new playable animal. If you disassemble all the shelves, the game is designed only for multiplayer game for one PC, it is there begins all the fun, because the AI in the game though good, but quite predictable and straightforward. GRAFONCHIK And MUZONCHIK Graphic component of Animal Rivals on a fairly decent level, if the design and style of locations do not dig, the appearance of the game characters a little disappointing. The Design stage "Run" is amazing, because it is pretty nicely framed and each of the traps looks really beautiful, but if you look at such characters as Leo or Cat, I think that they are sitting on some drugs? After All, judge for yourself that you need to look might have get drunk! The Rest of the characters are made in a rather restrained manner, I would even say soundly. The Implementation of the levels looks quite prestigious and the account to the details of the truth is amazing (as a pity that more time was not given to playable characters). The Soundtrack behaves rather strangely. In General, it is not bad, but sometimes sounds simply disappear, also behaves and the musical theme of the game. PROS And CONS Pluses: + Interesting, though not new Idea + various gameplay part + 5 different kinds of game + Presence of both multiplayer and single + Good graphic component Cons:-Indistinct atmosphere-Mediocre Sound Animal Rivals-A pretty good representative of entertainment content, but for a nice game you need from 2 to 4 friends, because the singleplayer for a long time does not entertain. Rated 8 out of 10. More Reviews in our curator group: Dreams of Genesis Also join our VK group. Latest News, personal memes, distribution of novelties of the game industry [vk.com]
