About Chipmonk!

The gluttonous gray squirrel has stolen all the land's food stores, threatening the forest’s inhabitants with starvation. Embark on a perilous journey as a chipmunk martial arts master — Grey, Cheeks or Red — as you battle a multitude of foes in a heroic attempt to recover the stolen food stores. Go nuts and fill your cheeks!

 

Chipmonk! is a throwback to the popular late 80s game genre known as Beat ‘em up. Inspired by classics such as Golden Axe, Battletoads, and Streets of Rage (Bare Knuckle in Japan), Chipmonk! features local multiplayer, multiple playable characters, an assortment of villains, and a retro pixel aesthetic. Although Chipmonk! includes many hallmarks of the genre, it also introduces a variety of new moves, challenges, and quirks.
