Chicken Invaders Editor's Review

Chicken invaders is a free ware arcade shooter game that hasheavy influence from classic titles like space invaders, or arcanoid. What chicken invaders does to the concept, however is add its own level of humour and gameplay to the mix. For instance, the game starts with an over dramatic title sequence explaining the situation, with incredibly over the top music to give the effect that the game will be include an epic storyline, before cutting to the protagonistic, who is actually working at a burger restaurant (in space). This, and the enemies are chickens in place of actual enemies

The gameplay of chicken invaders is very simple, you are in a space ship which can hover left and right along the bottom of the screen, you must avoid enemy projectiles (chicken eggs, and when applicable asteroids) while firing your laser cannon to destroy the chickens. This is very, very similar to space invaders for the most part, however the key differences are that there is no shield to hide under from the enemies, and there is no limit on how fast you can fire your laser cannon, meaning that if you can hammer your space bar fast enough, with some good movements you can destroy the wave in a very short period of time.

In addition to just “space invader clone” gameplay (which isn't necessarily a bad thing) roughly half the levels are interesting mix ups of this concept, for instance asteroid levels, where asteroids will fly across the screen from left to right in place of enemies, and you must avoid them all. There are also levels where there is a planet earth in the middle, and the chickens fly around it, meaning you have to destroy chickens travelling in a circular motion rather than just straight lines, and make sure neither the chickens nor your laser cannon destroys the earth.

The controls of chicken invaders are fairly simple, arrow keys to move, space bar to fire (and control to fire missiles). There are also a second set of controls, which will allow the second player to play, using the left half of the keyboard (W, A, S and D as well as shift and left control) making the game a pretty effective multiplayer experience. The difficulty of the game is also fairly straight forward, the chickens get more and more aggressive as the levels go on, and you can upgrade your laser by collecting present boxes which the enemies drop.

Overall chicken invaders was actually a really fun game to play, one that I thoroughly enjoyed my time with. While the games lasting appeal is not to great, the amount of humour, the levels of graphics and the multiplayer compatibility makes the game a great choice for a quick play if you have just a couple hours or less to waste. If you are looking for a serious game, or a long lasting one, this game is not for you, but otherwise this game is an excellent choice for a quick play.
4/5
