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

So it’s easy - especially throughout the first levels - to score lots of points, but the levels increase in difficulty from mission to mission, eventually becoming a real challenge with a huge hook. The implementation of numerous and varied gimmicks - individually designed for each level - offers the player many hours of exciting gameplay.

Chicken Shoot Gold consist of two games, Chicken Shoot and Chicken Shoot 2. They are similar to each other, could say that CS2 is more of mission pack. Anyway, they came out around in 2003, developed by some Toontraxx and published by TopWare. They come from the era of shareware games, mind it, and seem to ride on Moorhuhn/CrazyChicken success, both being shooting gallery where you just shoot at many chickens.
Actually, as I found out from a friend, original name of this polish series was "Kurka Wodna". And what you see as Chicken Shoot Gold is combination of the second and the third game. The first game isn't all that known, but you can YouTube gameplay out. It's quite primitive.
It also for whatever reason was ported to GBA, DS and Wii (in 2007!). Which is way past the intented audience of bored office workers. Reviewers weren't afraid to dumb the game on those platforms. PC version seems to be the best anyway.

Technically it's as-is. For 2003 game. Which means low-resolution in forced full-screen which will go "we smoke everyday" if you alt-tab. No Steam Overlay. Nope, no widescreen. You can only increase resolution up to 800x600, but it will just increase in-game space. Meaning that you will see more. Which affects gameplay, making it harder, as eggs thrown at you will hit you only if they will be on screen.
Also, it doesn't usually remember CD-Key and scores, so check Steam guides to find out how to fix that.

Also, nope, Internet multiplayer doesn't work. It can't "connect to host". Local seem to function up to server browser, but you know, I don't have friend nearby with computer with local net to connect by to check this out. Not 2000 anymore.

And so it begins, you got two games, with 5 usual levels in the first CS and 6 exotic levels in the second. Then you choose one of the two modes to play. Classic is score based, you worry less about being hit by egg and more about not accidently hitting other non-chicken living beings. With weird exclusions to both rules. Like owl-looking ones, who are too gross, I guess. Just try to get enough score in time to go to the next level. And arcade mode, where you got usual lifebar and have to avoid eggs by either shooting them down or scrolling away.

After which you are shown intro where a farmer of sorts will wake up and starts shooting chickens who were eating spilled seeds of sorts, instead of trying to lock them back. After which chickens will suddenly learn how to fly away. And then you will murder all the chickens by getting even more disturbed, whether young or old. Which gets a bit wicked when you find out that some don't just fall over, but turn into angels.

And well, really, it is what it is. Shareware-age moorhuhn-clone "me too". Albeit it has more content that Moohruhn in levels. And you can get more weapons to use and such. Final boss. This stuff isn't easy. Both games also have secret levels that I couldn't find how to get to.

But really, it ain't Virtua Cop. Or House of the Dead on Steam. It doesn't have much going on outside of shooting gallery. Just some chickens, some throw eggs, and interactive level objects you can shoot mostly for score. In all honesty, I wasn't sure whether to recommend it or not. It didn't ♥♥♥♥ me off, so I guess it's good if you know what you are getting.
Nowdays no one is going to play them past hour anyway. And owch my fingers on right hand.

Once in every lifetime, a masterpiece is created. Though many may criticise me as we are only 15 years into the 21st century, I am not in the slightest hesitant to say that this is the defining game of the 21st century. I urge you to buy it now. Every second not spent on the video game epic is a second wasted.

I can tell you, after the first installment of Chicken Shoot I was blown away. My expectations were low. I truly doubted that the dev's could improve a perfect game, yet somehow they did. How could such a small company on such a small budget create this classic, gem of a game.

It has the pace of GTA, the storytelling only a Telltale game could perfect, the combat of Counter-Strike. The weapons, though few in number are brilliantly balanced and feel fantastic. When you fire the sawn off, you almost feel your arm coming out of it's socket and the excrutiating pain that comes with it, because you fire one-handed. I feel the name "Chicken Shoot" undermines the games full potential. It is not just shooting chicken's; Those who played the game would know that. The deep connections with the player, twists and turns in the story tell you so much more.

For those of you who are intelectually inferior and cannot fathom the potentcy this game, perhaps it is transcendant of your tiny chimp brain - Not meant for you as it were.

This game is the first game I have, and probably ever will rate 10/10.


EDIT: It's hard to put into words how excited I was to see a chicken shoot 2 released. I have already bought it, racked up over 1000+ hours in this immersive adventure we call "Chicken Shoot". I cannot wait to see the series expand further, and maybe finally we can find out, who stole the eggs?

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
