Reviews

“Chicken Shoot means great fun for both hardcore and casual gamers and is definitely good value for money (I can't say that for all the games which come out in stores...).”
90 – XabreGamers

“The graphics feature beautifully painted backdrops and about 10.000 hysterical hand-drawn animations. There’s also fantastic barnyard music that stays with you long after you play and humorous squawking effects. ChickenShoot Demo was rated by Avault as Top Shareware of the year!”
Avault

“Brilliant visuals and tonal presentation, the variety of different objects, as well as the different game modes and many funny ideas make the game worth to give it a try.”

About This Game

This tiresome bunch of feathered troublemakers is not giving any peace. Stop this hostile destruction from these rampaging roosters in Arcade mode, or fight against the clock in Classic mode in three difficulty levels. Six fabulous landscapes (in Chicken Shoot 1) and another seven landscapes (in Chicken Shoot 2) enchant the player again and again revealing new secrets and gimmicks every time. Punctuated with loads of original sound effects and underscored with idyllic music both parts will amuse not only the lone player, but the whole family with its variety of comic chicken animations, unique surprises and hilarious, raucous chicken noises.

Invite and join forces with the like-minded for a spell of joint poultry plucking in a network, or on the Internet. Alternatively, stalk them alone and achieve the ultimate high score to secure first place on the international online scoreboard.

The Gold Edition contains both: Chicken Shoot 1 and Chicken Shoot 2

The implementation of numerous and varied gimmicks - individually designed for each level - offers the player many hours of exciting gameplay.

In the year 2020, humanity is at a lose. Terrorism has taken over much of Europe and Asia, and they are on the march for America. War rages on, and in the next three years, nuclear war broke out. Everyone had to evacuate to Sweeden. Unfortunantly, not everyone made it, but around 3,000 did. They were the last. For hundreds of years people lived in peace in Sweeden. No one knew the REAL side affects of nuclear warfare. They turned into chickens. And they were aggresive. They attacked. Millions of chickens attacked, and the small milita of people had to defend themselfs. War broke out again. Family members had to kill each other, because once you were bitten by one, the radiation would turn you into a chicken. You play as one of the last survivors of this war, and you must defend yourself and your family from the radiation infected chickens.

Don't mind the small resolutions. Don't mind this annoying need of cdkey at begin, which can be fixed anyway. Don't mind that it doesn't have pretty much a story. It's just a simple game. Simple and fun.

I remember when years ago I played it many times. Got it from some gaming magazine and it was fun. I loved to play it around Easter - it was my yearly tradition to play it when there was Easter coming up. I probably wasn't the only one who did that. It was really hard game - I mean, how can you avoid all those eggs? How do you beat the first or second level, it's impossible! After some time I forgot about this game and didn't even wanted to look around for CDs, only to install a game that I would play for short time. In 2014 I got Chicken Shoot Gold from some bundle but also I didn't feel like playing it. Now, in 2016, I wanted to relive some of memories. Nostalgia trips from time to time aren't a bad thing. I played for some time and I was surprised how easy it is. While playing it for the first time after so many years I got rather good score and beat more levels then earlier in every try. It was fun to discover something new when it wasn't really possible as kid. Chicken Shoot Gold reminded me once again what gaming should be like - it's fun to play a game which have a good story, and same goes for graphics and new ideas but sometimes you don't need all of this and something simple, like getting rid off chickens in this case, can be really enjoyable too.

There is only one thing I'm not sure about - price. While for me, I would probably buy it at full price if there wasn't a bundle with it but for new players, for somebody who never heard and never played it, it's way too big price for content it offer. If there will be some promo, and you enjoy simple AND I MEAN IT, really simple games when everything you could brag about is your highscore - grab it.

This has to be up there on my list of top 10 games I have ever played. As I shot the chickens as is instructed in the title I began to question all authority and the semblance of the person I really am. Why was I illing these chickens? Was it because the game ordered me to? Does commiting a mass genocide against chickens to get a high score seem morally right? These tough questions are a deciding factor in this game being a philisophical eureka. 10/10

9 years ago, I was trapped in an abandoned factory for 3 weeks straight. There was very little light and almost no food or water. I discovered two things that helped me power through this time in my life. A cheap desktop from 2004, and a copy of Chicken Shoot Gold on CD-ROM. Using the manual powered generator I found in the basement of the factory, I did nothing but play Chicken Shoot Gold until I was rescued by the missing persons detectives. Playing it now brings a warm sentiment to my heart that I cannot obtain anywhere else. I think of the struggles I have faced and how I know I can power through them, no matter how hopeless it seems. It all comes back to me with this game. I would rate it 10/10.

First off let me say I came into this game with low expectations, but after ten minutes I was hooked.the story is on par with greats such as Call of Duty Global Offensive, Raider of the Lost Shark, and Glover.The story revolves around a farmer who I could not discern if he was pig or man, but that's the beauty of the game YOU the gamer get to choose.The shooting mechanics are some of the most fine-tuned and realist seen within the last 12 years.The evironments are 100.1% interactive, gone are the days of battlefields "levelutions" which were drab and bland.The only negative I can see in this game is that I felt physically assaulted when an egg flew at me and a chicken gave me the double bird, but seeing as how I did have these feelings they left a huge impact on me and left me pondering my life days after, so you could take that as a negative or positve depending on what you decide to call art.overall this is a great buy for anyone looking for an emotional rollercoster, and deep reflecttion. 9.9999/10 ( I would give it a ten but nobodies perfect. rip Hannah Montana.)

Not much different to a free flash game I played 15 years ago.

The second time I run the game it forgot I had played it before, which apart from forgetting settings and high scores, meant I had to retype the CD key, which was particulary annoying as it wont paste properly and the Steam overlay doesn't work with this game.

I haven't played the second one and am in no rush to.
