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...

This game is amazing, a true modernization of an old masterpiece, with tons of fun weapons, onlime multiplayer, responsive controls, creative waves of enemies and a sense of humor that will leave you hungry (for chicken).

The only gripe I have with the game is that going into windowed mode and using the mouse makes it possible to click out.

Aside from that, I highly recommend this incredible game. It's right up there with Ikaruga as one of the shmup kings. Not even joking.

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.

Do you have what it takes to become the world's greatest assassin?
Have fun with this game meant only for the best
It requires hard work, dedication, guts, everything is about concentration and tactics.

This is honestly one of the best shooters out there!!!
Nvidia PhysX leaves it's fingerprint in this game, i recommend you to play it at 2560x1440 for the best graphics ever.

15/10

A great sequel to the franchise. If you have played the previous games, you already know everything about the game. The game has new weapons and unlockable content, obtainable through collecting keys. The unlockables range from purely cosmetic effects to adding a few addition atack types. This gives the game some replayability. This installment of the franchise also features online multiplayers, as previous only had local co-op.

But unfortunately, atleast for me, not enough has been changed from it's predecessors. If you have played previous titles before, you will get bored pretty quickly as the gameplay is identical most of the time. Also the game is pretty easy, which hurts the replay value. The game also does not have many achivements or challenges to test your skill and keep you interested. The only thing I have found to make the game harder is playing with a keyboard instead of a mouse, since keyboards lack the speed and precision mice offer, but that makes it less enjoyable.

In conclusion, for the price they have given the game is worth picking up, although I would love to see the franchise steer in the Rouge-like/Rouge-lite/PDS genre, with RPG elements. Personally I feel that the game will benefit a lot from the added depth from the PDS and RPG, which will make it a lot more interesting as well as add a lot of replayability.

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!
