Video-game adaptation of the obscure comic-book.


(comic book series)


This video game follows the tale of a man who was so cocky that he declared even Death couldn't best him in battle. Of course, Death appeared and challenged Chakan with a proposition. If Chakan could defeat him, he'd be granted with eternal life. If Chakan lost the match, he'd become Death's eternal servant. Written by Shawn Watson

A rather bland platformer
14 July 2005 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

I first got Chakan when I was 13 and for some reason I liked it. It's not really that good and is nowhere near as cool as the underground comic-book it's based on.

As Chakan you fight through many different planes (levels) and baddies such as Dragonfly Kings and evil slugs while using magic potions you come across to give you power-ups. The levels are uninteresting, baddies boring and the fighting is quite simple and lacks satisfaction.

Overall it's quite a disappointing game considering how much potential the concept has. If you do like Chakan however, I suggest you track down the comics. THOSE are cool.
