“Rocketbirds does everything well...”
8.5/10 – Destructoid

“Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is a blast to play. A title with a silly premise, satisfying action, plenty of content (15 solo chapters and 10 co-op) and a first rate game presentation is hard not to cluck about.”
9/10 – GamePro

“This brilliant follow on from the browser based game Rocketbirds: Revolution! Is truly one of the best side scrolling platform games I’ve played in a long time.”
– 5/5 N3rdabl3

This game? Well it reminds me of Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee but with weapons. I mean, with a price like 10 USD its actually worth it!

It's not a typical 2D side scrolling shooter but rather adds tactics & puzzles that tests your wit! i mean, they're not that hard to solve and the storyline kept me going just to know more about what's going to happen next.

A 2D action adventure game with some good story playing as a a bird killing other birds who went rouge from a society who turned him into a monster of their own.

pretty nice.

Very funny 2D shooter with flaws

Good:
- Very well designed Penguin and Chicken characters
- Cute and humorous dialogue
- Good story balance between humor, action and justice
- Good designed puzzle in level
- Very forgiving difficulty
- Music and song are charming
- Enough hints for puzzle solving but still needs some thinking

Bad:
- Too short! I really wants more story! (even by DLC)
- Rolling action sometimes create chaos in group battle
- Different guns in same category didn't feel the different. e.g. MP5 spec is exactly the same as AK47
- Grenade is very limited functioning
- Jumping is slow and weird
- In Rocket scene all characters are zoomed too small to find and follow

Score: 7/10 (8/10 if pick up in sales)

I would only catch it on sale cheap because it is very short, around 3-4 hours, and no reason to play through twice. One of the better indie games I have ever played though, however short it is. Well worth the dollar fifty I spent on it. The music is pretty awesome too.
