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

Chicken Shoot Gold consists of two games: Chicken Shoot 1 & 2 but both are basically the same.

It does not take a genius to know what this game is about. Shoot all the chickens to score points. You can also shoot objects (dynamite, bombs..) and other animals (birds, whales , sharks) some give you more points than others but you can also get score reductions for shooting the wrong animals (although I did not figure out how this works because you get points reducted for killing crows but not for whales....). You can also pick up several powerups and different weapons to help you in your mission.

The game pretty much looks and feels like a free browser game. You use your mouse to aim/reload and graphically the game looks OK (for a 2003 game).

Overall it's fun for a few minutes but nowadays these kind of games should be free on a browser game site. For that reason I can not recommend this game, especially for the price of 7 bucks.

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.

Chicken Shoot Gold is a game in which you shoot chickens for points... and as you can tell by the screenshots up there, it's not very interesting, there are free flash games out there that are a magnitude more complex and interesting then this one, all you do is point and click, reload when you run out of bullets, should say something that I only played this game for ten minutes and could already tell you not to buy it, very few modes or changes to the formula as the game goes on, just shoot chickens and gain points.

Should also be noted this game has some form of DRM attached to it, which is yet another knock against it, all and all even for the low price of seventy cents when on sale (Lets not even talk about the seven dollars max) you are better off using that money on just about anything else.
