It can't seem to find its own style, it tries too hard to be Castle Crashers, while trying to look like Limbo. Trying to be hilarious by being whacky solely for the sake of being whacky, it just doesn't have any flair.
Jokes that an unwell 3 year old could write between brain operations with all the charm of a half eaten burrito hanging shamefully out out of the bin from the night before.

The controls are sloppy, nauseating and plain awkward. You know you're doing something wrong when every level feels like the ICE LEVEL! Slip slide and clunk your way across the same looking backdrops with a slightly different colour hew each time.

I'd put this in a room somewhere with Bad Rats as company, equally as poor.

Super fun, but i honesty don't think the game was ever test played by the dev team. So damn buggy i couldn't get passed the first level. It's sad, because it's really funny and looks great. too bad.

This is one of those games which made me question why I bought it. It's a generic 2D action/platformer, and I could never really find something that set it apart. I found the artwork for the levels to be messy, and it was hard at times to distinguish between the foreground and background, which eventually became fatiguing to play through. Also, the game tried to be funny but the tone was that of an immature middle-schooler's first attempt at potty humor, which was painful for me to sit through. I didn't last too long, and this is one of the few games that I just had to give up on because it was so bad.

Fowl Space is one of the most mixed up and weirdest games I’ve ever played. The devs of the game haven’t made the point of this game clear enough, rounding up many negative reviews from the users who may not understand or appreciate the hidden humour within.

The theme of Fowl Space is peculiar, though it feel somewhat original and refreshing. A light background which contrasts with the dark foreground, is different and not common within the world of gaming. The story has you controlling a Rooster, a milk-gun wielding, coffee drinking, Rooster. The story is hard to follow which loses many players, sending them into a negative-review rage.

The gameplay has you mainly fighting little to large Vikings. It has some Platformer potential, proving somewhat fun for short bursts of play. A problem users had were it felt like you were walking on ice. The game is supposedly set out of space, where the gravity isn’t as apparent.

Another enjoyable feature, which I personally enjoyed, was the ability to collect hats and masks throughout the story. The ability to collect a power-up which grants you three killer whales, knocking all enemies and killing them.

One of the interesting aspects of Fowl Space is it is full of sexual innuendos and a parody of popular culture, turning it into an interesting parody. Though the game is very simplistic, not having much going for it. Long play becomes very repetitive, and players who do not understand the referencing going on, find it utter rubbish.

All-in-all the game was enjoyable, simplistic and in my opinion, the negative reviews were unneeded. The whole point of the game is the bad puns, the horrible memes. If they took a bit more time to informatively conduct a proper review, the site states a “crazy experience you will never forget… to say the least”. This game was meant to be “bad” in a way. The game is simplistic, and I’m not saying it was wonderfully addicting, though every game needs a chance.

Score: 4/10

Fowl Space is full of sexual innuendos and parodies. It is this comedy that makes Fowl Space an enjoyable game. However if you drop the jokes you're left with a very short and simplistic platform game. If you're not amused by the idea of a ♥♥♥♥ shooting a dubious white substance in the face of a viking, you better leave Fowl Space alone.

This game was so unbearable. I could've beat it in less than 2 hours, but the clunky and slippery controls prevented me from enjoying the game. I really dislike the style and look of this game, maybe they shouldve made it more of a comic book/cartoony look. The most I remember from looking at this game are the dark shadows contrasting against the bright background, to it's disadvantage.

I remember nothing from playing this game at all. I just remember being really unsatisfied. Don't buy this game full price, but just don't buy this game at all. I can see that this could've been way better than what it was, but sadly it just sucks.

I bought this game while it was in a sale. Not sure why... but I think the Steam Gods like to tempt me into buying things because, well, you know, it's cheap. It's actually pretty odd as games go. You're a space chicken trying to do something or other, who drinks coffee, combats space Vikings and collects hats.

Don't make the mistake of taking this game seriously. It's a parody of popular culture. With meme, film, music and game references this game is a nod to internet culture. The game did cause me one or two internal laughs. The whole point is to feel 'in on the joke' as it were.

Although I don't think it's fitting of its' £3.99 price tag. The controls de-sync sometimes, the game is nonsense to those who don't know what it’s referencing and it's rather unpolished. Controller support, better controls and support of different resolutions would add to the over-all quality of the game.

I did, however, enjoy the game despites its' flaws. There is some minor re-playability if you want to collect all of the hats and do all of the challenges.

4/10. Amusing but flawed. If you like internet culture, and fancy a giggle, pick it up in a sale. Don’t expect serious, or well-polished, game play. Enjoyable none the less.

Fowl Space has a creative concept, but the developers haven't put enough time into the game. I found myself not touching the keyboard, yet having the chicken continue to move and shoot on its' own. I hope for future updates and bug fixes, but i won't play more until then. To anyone who thinks this might be a good game, well, it's 49 cents for a reason.

This game is not very good. The game is incredibly short, the artstyle is not that great after 15 seconds and the controls are completely awful and extremely slippery.

Plus the game bugged out on me repeatedly.

I thought the game had a cool visual style and would be worth some laughs. Unfortunately the humor is all rauncy or crummy and the gameplay is repetitive. Go with your better sense and avoid this one.
