Have you ever wondered what aliens would really look like if they did in fact exist? Whatever may be out there, it sure does not resemble anything like chickens… or does it? The Chicken Invaders game takes a whole new concept about aliens and them invading our planet by making the antagonists extra terrestrial chickens. The game does not take itself too seriously, spoofing popular titles of alien invasion movies. Chicken Invaders is available for Mac as well Windows-based operating systems and is a really fun game to play. If you haven’t played it yet, you are missing out on a lot of fun especially since this is the first of many series of Chicken Invaders.
The main plot of the game is very simple: our planet is in danger of being taken over by technologically-advanced chickens from outer space and it is up to you as Earth’s last line of defense to protect our entire existence. When you forget about chicken dinners and fried chicken, this is a scary (well, not exactly) game to play. So you will need to go through various levels, in which each one will have ten waves of attacking alien chickens. They come in patterns, move in every which way direction and they will annoy the heck out of you.
So playing the game is very easy to do and will not require much thinking from you in order to get on with it. You will be in charge of an aircraft and will have to move from left to right to avoid getting hit and fire at the aliens until you obliterate all them. Sounds simple enough, right? Chicken Invaders, being a simple game, also has very simple controls. For PC and Mac users, all you need to do is use the arrow keys or WASD to move the aircraft and the mouse buttons to fire your weapons. That is all there is to it.
The game play starts off easy enough for you to get the hang of it but of course, each wave gets harder and harder to complete since the chickens, ironically enough, will drop eggs on you which causes you to lose a life. When you have depleted all your hearts, you lose the game. So, it goes without saying that you will need to avoid every egg that will be dropped. On the other hand, when you shoot at the aliens, they will turn into various types of gift boxes which you will need to collect in order to get power-ups as well as upgrades.
When you get the gift boxes, you will be able to upgrade your primary weapon up to eight times to make it into a powerful alien obliterator. Your other weapon is the missile, which is scarce and hard to collect. However, when you are able to collect some, using just one will allow you to vaporize all chicken invaders that are on your screen.
A reason why gamers love playing this game so much even with its simplicity is that it really is just so much fun. You can even play with another friend in two-player mode and destroy all the aliens in this Chicken Invaders game. In addition, you can also have high scores and post it for your own record keeping. So finally, if you are looking for something simple to play with that does not require much thinking or deep involvement, Chicken Invaders should be a game that is not missing in your games folder. To add icing to the cake, you can download this game for free in many websites!
