Party Animals is a chaotic multiplayer game where players duke it out across a variety of maps and game modes.

One of these modes is "Last Stand", and features teams of two - but you can change it to different team sizes if you prefer. In this mode, players aim to be the last man standing by taking out the other players. It features nine maps, including Black Hole Lab and the alligator-shaped Gator Valley.

"Team Score" will see 4 players competing to complete an objective depending on which of the nine maps you're on. For example, if you're on "Lollipop Factory" you need to fight over gummy bears and bring candy back to your base.

There's also "Arcade" mode which has just two maps, and players start with 10 lives each. On Winter Cabin players can drink expired milk to gain super strength, and staying outside will freeze you solid. On Final Destination, players duke it out in an abandoned subway station - just don't stumble onto the tracks.

It's shaping up to be a fun party game with a lot of different maps to try out, so if you're interested, you can try the game now on Xbox or Steam.
