American McGee's new game on Kongregate.

Alice: Madness Returns developer Spicy Horse Games' new free-to-play multitplayer title BigHead BASH went into open beta today on Kongregate.

BigHead BASH is a competitive action/platformer that "combines the world of collectible toys with multiplayer deathmatch action," according to the official site. Set in a toy shop, players collect toys, weapons and accessories to fight with. More items will be added in the coming weeks with characters from Alice: Madness Returns coming 18th June.

Spicy Horse boss American McGee said: "BigHead BASH is designed to bridge the gap between social-online and hardcore action games - targeting the magical 'mid-core.'"
