was looking for chicken-themed games but decided to stay away from this one due to the mixed reviews, until it went on 90% off sale.

I don't think it's nearly as bad as most reviews make it out to be, though it's still not the best. I honestly find the platforming to be the most fun part of the game and don't have any issues with "slipping", but the added mouse-aim style shooting gets tedious and a little annoying. It's a game you'll probably only want to play in short bursts because it is repetitive and short, although the silhouette art style is striking at first it also becomes repetitive after the first level and I would have liked there to be more variance in lighting styles. As it is, Fowl Space seems more like a flash game on kongregate than something you'd ever pay 5 buck-bucks for.

Overall: recommend when it's $0.50, NOT worth full price
we need more good chicken games :(

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
