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...

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.

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

Chicken Invaders. 'nuff said.
This game is legendary. I was like 5 years old, when I discovered Chicken Invaders. First game I have ever played. It was first episode of CI with poor graphics and strange controlls, but i frickin' loved it. I played only this game, nothing else.^^ I was super addicted to it. Later, CI2 came, also with christmas version, with lots of improvements 'n stuff. I learned my brother how to play it and we were having awesome fun. Biggest revolution came with CI3:ROTY and CI4:UO. Well, what to say about this game, intresting graphics, great multiplayer, controller support, unlockables, many weapons, levels are not stereothype, achievements(which are really easy, but ok:D) and also, game is not dead for devolpers. They are still anwsering your questions, helping fix the bugs'n stuff and I am so glad for them. Keep doing great job guys, and hope we will see Loco and CI3 on steam soon.

So, can you find better casual game than Chicken Invaders?
-no.
10/10, best casual game EVER.

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

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.

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.
