Once in a while a game comes along that’s truly entertaining and exciting, and this is one of those games.
Chickens. For centuries we have oppressed them, grilled, roasted and enjoyed their taste. Probably the time has come for us to pay. Intergalactic chickens are invading Earth, seeking revenge for the oppression of their earthly brethren! It’s time for you to fight for our ancestral right to omelettes. Will you succeed? Will the future of chicken burgers be secure? Or will you end up as part of the menu in a galactic chicken restaurant?
This game doesn’t demand much deep thinking, or game expertiseness, just some trigger-happy lousy fingers to really enjoy it. Time passed by rather quickly and after a moment of exasperation that the game is approaching its ending, and a very exhausted finger, you couldn’t help but smile looking at all those funny intergalactic chicken invaders and their egg yolks.
This is a funny game, I have been playing it all weekend. The developer had a wicked sense of humour mixed with nostalgia.
The overall setup is very much like the classic Galaga of the 80s. You have a spaceship that fires at the invaders, which are, in this case, chickens, that lay easter eggs. Avoid the eggs to keep from being blown up. When you blow up a chicken, it becomes a fried chicken leg or a big mc burger that your ship then comsumes. Some chickens become whole fried chickens for more points. Once you eat so many you will earn a bomb that will let you blow up entire groups of chickens- everyone present on the screen. There is also an obligatory asteroid screen, and at the end of each round you face some type of villain, one of which is a huge easter egg. The graphics and animations are good. The weapons are interesting and more importantly the game is fun to play although it might seem a bit lousy to hardened gamers. Nonetheless the simplicity and yet creativity of the games makes it a must play.
