Heliocentricity, Chickens and Christmas are brought together to create a scrolling shooter filled with space poultry, mistletoe and non-graphic violence.
For your holiday delight, Chicken Invaders is now Christmas themed. This absurd game puts you at the helm of a fighter spacecraft that needs to shoot its way through hordes of incoming chicken. Relative to the season, these chicken lay a form of red eggs that looks surprisingly similar to Christmas tree decorations only they explode when touched.
You will be progress through different levels in the solar system, encounter special enemies and though to kill bosses.
What's more if your desk is wide enough, two people can play at the same time, or you can direct two ships at the same time if you feel up to it. Either way, there will be two scores being recorded at the same time. So much for cooperation.
The mouse control is smooth and the gameplay is fairly satisfying. Of course, how long can you stand killing chicken?
