Sale is almost over, new achievements on the way.


Thanks for so many wishlist add's. *Currently 45+. There are a great many of those who haven't pulled the trigger and bought the game yet. In your own due time I'd greatly appreciate a purchase + review. Chicken on sale a bit longer and I'm working some new achievements for those completionists/hardcore players out there. Maybe new levels if I get some more support?...Thanks to all.

3 days left to get some chicken on sale...

A big thanks to my wish-list add's since my release on 2/6/2019 of (Why Chicken? Why?). Currently over 40 wish-lists add's. Please be sure to take the next step if you'd be so kind and purchase the game. Now is a good time, it's still on sale until the day before Valentine's Day, Wednesday (2/13/2019). So get it now, wipe down your controller because you might sweat a lot then buy your darlin' some chicken for this upcoming Valentine's. Thanks for any support. :)

nor do I condone running chickens over with your car


'Great job, the game levels progressed nicely, the tricky bit was gauging how far the chicken would move when an extra few lanes were added to the screen...bastard level 5 was tricky, and at the end I barely got across and missed all the coins because I hit the golden egg...lol...nice addition with the ghost frog/gold bar secret level.'
