About This Game

I remember the day of the invasion well. The memories still burn deeply, like spicy chicken wings.

They came without warning, squawking menacingly, their ruffled feathers darkening the sun. Invading intergalactic chickens, out to punish humanity for our oppression of their earthly brethren.

I instantly knew what had to be done. I dropped my half-eaten chicken burger and jumped in my cockpit. With a greasy finger I set my lasers to "extra crispy" and blasted off to intercept the fowl invaders.

It wasn't easy. Squawks, feathers flying, the smell of charred chicken everywhere. Three times they invaded, each time with increasingly devious plans. Three times I managed to push them back whence they came, and secure humanity a few more years as the dominant species of this planet.

After their last retreat, I headed for my local Space Burger to bask in the glow of my recent victory. Breathing a sigh of relief, I sat down to enjoy a double chicken-burger with crispy chicken wings on the side.

Little did I know that my greatest adventure was yet to come...

If you think about the low playtime - I've completed the game over 50 times on an Android device, getting every achievement. Can't transfer progress from tablet to PC though.

Chicken Invaders is a series of shoot 'em up video games, you control a ship which needs to save the universe from the Chickens - Which had enough of you eating them all the time.
While you play, you find a lot of different weapons, there's a weapon Level system too, when you defeat chickens, they sometimes drop a gift or energy orb - Getting the gift gives you a particular weapon, the orb raises your weapon level by +1. The amount of weapons is massive, one is a railgun, another one is a electroshocker, and each one can be either good for particular enemies/bosses, or bad.
You don't switch weapons while you play, when you find a box, you can get it, and it replaces your current weapon. You can't switch back to it until you find another box with that weapon you want.
Each wave is completely different, in one you see chickens moving in a clockwise way, in a different one they will be in shields which you need to destroy - every single wave is different.
The storyline, it's really good and hilarious.
Soundtrack - It's beautiful.

In other words, if you like space shooters, get this. It's not too hard, it's not too easy (Well there are 3 different difficulity levels) You'll very likely enjoy this game. I've been playing the series since I was a young kid, and I still love it. I'm even beta testing Chicken Invaders 5 now, because I want to help the game series, because it's simply amazing.
10/10.
It's a space shooter for 5 bucks.

Nostalgia written all over this. I remember playing the first one when I was a little kid.

Who woulda thought chickens would be your greatest enemy?
This is an arcade styled game where you shoot up chickens in your spaceship. Waves, bosses, pick-ups, you name it!
Easy to play and very enjoyable.

10/10

Oh wow. When you think of the concept of this game, everything about it is so much better than it deserves to be. A game full of terrible puns and one liners, it is actually very fun, and a great casual game. Key features include, but are not limited to : Shooting Chickens, Killing Chickens, Collecting the deliciously cooked carcasses of the aforementioned Chickens and an egg cannon. Yes. You heard me correctly. KILLING. CHICKENS.
10/10
1/10 if you happen to be a chicken

I've played the Chicken Invaders series ever since my Aunt told me about Episode 2: The Next Wave, and I've loved every episode since.

Right now, I'm Beta testing for Chicken Invaders 5: Cluck of The Dark Side. So far, Cluck of The Dark Side is shaping up to be an AWESOME game! I can't assure you that it's gonna be on Steam, but I can tell you to be ready for the end of November. It just might be released at that time.

Until it comes out, enjoy Chicken Invaders 4: Ultimate Omelette, and prepare for the newest addition to the poultry-blasting family! Interaction Studios deserves that kind of feedback!

I had a good memories when I playing this game with my old friend on high school. But we never beat a game together....

When I saw this game on Steam myself, I want to play this game again. Yeah, I beat a game!
I love this game. Graphics most looks like a 3D...but it is actual 2.5D anyways. Soundtracks are pretty good. I can say that, I love every musics on the game. Story is PERFECT and EPIC!! And little comedy.

I noticed there're some Star Wars reference.... (Hen Solo...and his ship is looks similar from Star Wars...And there's one scene look-a-like a Death Star?)

I've played chicken invaders ever since I was just a young potato, now, I play it even as a ripe old one.
the game is basic: there are 12 star systems each with 10 waves, shoot chickens using different weapons (green, white and black are my fav), gain explosives by gathering chicken-related-meals, use satellite weapons for extra damage, and avoid feathers, bird poop, eggs, and bird weapons.
Be warned, however, these chickens are smart as fudge balls on a stick. I mean, how the hell did they manage to almost take over the world? Step up soldiers! Save our galaxy!
you can choose difficulty level and also upgrade and unlock stuff using the golden keys.
9/10 (mostly because its a pretty mindless game. I usually listen to music and think about life while i blast these suckers)

AUDIO: Stock                                                AESTHETIC: Goofy
MEMORABILITY: Strange                         WORTH: Full Price

PROS: Fun shoot 'em up with wave-style levels and power-ups to change gameplay! Plenty of levels and unlockables to keep you busy. Multiplayer is stable and really fun.

CONS: Stomach-churning jokes and dialogue. Music is very boring with how unoriginal it is. Game is quick to punish your placement on some waves with quick enemies that may move to your unlucky position.

OVERALL: I can't believe I'm saying this, but Chicken Invaders 4 is fun. It's really fun. I can't believe I'm saying this either, but... It's really fun with friends. You'll WANT your friends to know about this hokey little game so you can share it with them.

                                                    
SCORE: 9/10

A charming little bullet hell game. The story behind the chickens being the true good guys and us slaughtering them merely for chicken burgers really struck a cord in me.

I felt like the bad guy - but it left something inside me that I knew I wouldn't forget.

Lovely time with this title - the inclusion of online multiplayer was an enjoyable surprise and I am happy you went for it.

Look forward to the next title!

Chicken Invaders 4 is a great and fun game in the arcade / shooter style.

Where your mission is to protect our planet and our solar system from ... Chickens!
Yes, you read correctly SPACE CHICKENS to be exact. But do not think that we are the good guys,
in fact they are just trying to defend themselves from being eaten by US, humans...

The game has a good variety of weapons to be used in waves of chickens coming upon to you.
Each wave has different ways for you to kill them, in some it will be necessary to stay in
a safe place, to not end up blowing up your ship into a chicken.

The only bad thing is not to have the previous titles on sale here on STEAM.
