Get ready for a party, as the official launch of Ultimate Chicken Horse has commenced on Google Play for the NVIDIA SHIELD. Designed as a party game, with the title supporting up to 4 players at once, the goal is to reach the end of a level without getting destroyed by various in-level obstacles.

The Lifeline series, published onto Google Play by 3 Minute Games, is available on sale for only $0.10 a pop, bringing the price for the entire 3-game series to just $0.30. Lifeline games are branching story games, where choices you make affect the outcome of characters.
