“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

I picked this game up when it was under 3 dollars. It is well worth it at that price. Lots of fun and great soundtrack. The fact that its linux compatible and full controller support is great. Runs very well on ubuntu with a wired usb 360 controller. It isnt super short either. So you do get plently of game play hours out of it. Overall the game storyboard is well thought out and put together. It is a bit violent but kids over 8-10 should be fine playing. But use your own judgement. Every child is different. This game has not disappointed. I would recommend it at 9.99 but when on sale its a steal of a deal. I hope this helps anyone on the fence about getting it.

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.
