The alien invaders are everywhere, attacking everything and everyone. And when they die, the life-force they leave behind is an ultra-incredible energy source. Is there any hope? Meet the Chenso Club: a growing group of fighters here to save the world. They're using the aliens' life-force to power up and beat them at their own game. Don't let their adorable nature fool you - they will happily and brutally obliterate any threat that gets in their way. Our heroines want any excuse to use their newfound powers. It's up to you to master their moves, increase their power and show the world the might of the Chenso Club...


Chenso Club is a retro roguelike brawler

Chenso Club is a retro roguelike brawler that sees you facing of against numerous aliens as your trawl through the platform levels.

You can play as a number of different characters, each of which have their own unique strengths and abilities.

Key to success in the game is levelling up and obtaining new powerups, skills and weapons. Master the girls’ moves, kick your reflexes into high gear and battle your way through randomised stages to obliterate aliens. Play solo or indulge the Chenso girls’ competitive nature with couch co-op. Power up your heroine by sacrificing your health in shops and events. Experience various fast paced and fun bonus levels and events.


"Shop with your blood" - Collect and pay for items with blood

The controls take a little getting used to, and you'll find yourself dying quite quickly if you mess up. In fact one of my minor complaints about the game is that entering a room you need to be wary as on quite a few occasions you'll fall of the edge of a platform. In addition to this the constant simplicity in which it's easy to mistime jumps made for a bit of a frustrating game. Likewise, when there's a lot going on the screen it's easy to lose track of your character. I was also a little unsure what all the collecting and paying for things in blood was all about... but I suppose it makes a change to the usual coins.

As you progress through the game it becomes more and more addictive. Unlocking new characters helps to keep the gameplay fresh. It's frenetic fun which old skool gamers will find challenging and addictive.
