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...

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 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.

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.

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.

This is an awesome game that allows you to fry and shoot chickens in space. The story is very funny. It's a good price too. Be sure to check out Chicken Invaders 1, 2, and 3.

In this game a way to destroy chickens is by using electricity and lazers. I think this is how KFC cooks their chicken.

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.
