Chariot 

 

Chariot is one of the strangest video games the Working Man Gamer has ever played. This downloadable only Wii U video game is all about taking a king to his tomb. Along the way we are asked to collect as much loot as possible. Why? The belief that a dead body needs to be buried with possessions.

Chariot makes me think about the reality that we can't take it with us. So the whole collect as much treasure as possible for a ghost is freaky. Yes the ghost of the king comes out to chastise the players for not doing enough for him in Chariot.

When I first heard the name Chariot for this game, I thought it was for that Christian Personal Computer game. The Christian video game is actually called Chariots. One letter difference. I was all excited thinking Nintendo had finally stopped discriminating against Christians. Chariot on the Wii U is not a Christian game, and it is not the PC game Chariots.

Chariot has some really cool game play mechanics. We push the kings carriage up hills, and over ledges. We can also use a rope to pull the carriage up over larger cliffs. We can also jump on the carriage while it rolls down long slopes. These are all interesting and innovative. At times it can be tedious to keep pulling the carriage up in the zig zag pattern thanks to platforms.

A skeleton character in Chariot will sell us upgrades as long as we find the blueprints in the levels. It can be more difficult to reach the blueprints in the levels too. There are enough skills in Chariot to help players progress through the levels. There are also enemies that will try and steal the loot from your dead king's carriage.

Chariot is a different kind of a gaming experience that exhibits creativity. Families will pay attention to the afterlife teachings in this home console video game. Riding the carriage down the long slopes is a blast, and speeds up the otherwise slow game play. Expect to spend six to ten minutes in each level at a minimum.
