Kung Foot: Enter the...foot

Last week, Ubisoft held an event for Rayman Legends, a game that's been a long time coming thanks to a delay on account of incoming multiplatform ports. While I figured we might just about have seen everything we need to know about the much anticipated platformer, Rayman creator Michel Ancel and company had a few more surprises up their sleeves, one of which was the multiplayer minigame Kung Foot.

Kung Foot was conceptualized as a sort of one-off, fun addition, marked as something you "can play with your friends, maybe at night, drinking or not." It bears resemblance to Sportfriends' insanely fun and simple BaraBariBall, but without the death pits. As you can see in the header, it's just pared down soccer, basically, but it's fabulously fun.

Kung Foot support up to four players, which means you can throw goalies into the mix. Even with just two players, it's a blast, as you hit the soccer ball and try to score more goals than your opponent before time runs out. Simple, done before, still great. Naturally the ball speeds up after each hit and things go hectic. It has the addictive, adversarial spirit of a lot of simple browser games like Just the Tip. I can see myself wasting a lot of time on it. As Ancel noted, "this is the biggest Rayman game ever." Stay tuned for more.
