CHOP (Early Access) – A Unique Fast-Paced Arena Fighter with Couch Multiplayer

Game Review

CHOP is a fast-paced, 2D awesome arena fighting game with a unique twist.

Instead of killing everyone off or getting the best kill count, your goal is to escape the entire arena through a portal! It’s a crazy-fast game that offers “visceral gameplay” with plenty of gore, dismembered limbs and body parts, and super fast movements that require twitch reflexes to dodge and evade. You’ve probably never seen anything like this- at least I haven’t.

It’s a game that takes place on a set stage with a few platforms. It’s you vs. other players and all you need to do is make it to the end portal to beat the game. But both of you will be chopping each other up constantly which makes the game pretty challenging.

You can’t simply dash to the portal to win because you’ll have to carefully (but quickly) time your jumps across platforms. You’re very vulnerable to attack during the jumps and if you get hit, you need to spawn from the start! Each level also has plenty of hazards as well.

The game will have multiple characters each with special abilities and the game will feature multiple game modes as well. The main mode is Rush Out which is where you need to hack, slice, dice, and run to the portal! CHOP will have a full roster of characters, arenas, and special abilities later on and also 2 more game modes- Last Survivor and Skull Hunter. There’s a lot to get excited about.

Think of Super Smash Bros on steroids. And then throw it into a speed blender and add more steroids. And then throw Street Fighter in there and blend it again.

The game has a one-hit kill mechanic with instant respawn. It’s a game of repeating movements that’ll make you feel like you’re playing DOOM or something combined with platforming elements. The game draws influence from Towerfall, Nidhogg, and SSB.

To catch up to your opponent, you can use dash attacks which basically splice through other players and allows you to get a burst of speed. However, they can quickly catch up as well with the same attack from behind as you’re trying to make your jumps!

The artwork is amazing. It has a comic book feel that’s filled with gore and special effects like it’s a battle between epics.

CHOP is playable with up to 4 friends. You can do 1v1, or 2v2 for teams. And you can also do 1v3 if you’re up for the challenge! Local multiplayer on the couch is where it’s at.

If you’re looking for an awesome, hectic, and crazy-fast game to play with friends, this is it. Give CHOP a try. It’s one of the most extreme indie party games to date. You can currently play 1 character with a single ability and game mode in this version. If you’re playing alone, you can play against bots as well.
