If you re looking for a space-shooter game with a dose of humor, turn to Chicken Invaders. True to its name, this program is similar to Space Invaders, only you must blast chickens instead of aliens and avoid eggs instead of missiles. Other than that twist, gameplay is rather standard for this type of program, although the chickens fly in different formations as you go deeper into the game. We liked both the graphics and the music, but we would have appreciated the ability to turn the latter down or disable it entirely. While we re on the subject, a lack of features is Chicken Invaders weakest point; you won t find a single option for customizing the game other than the ability to set the detail level. Still, since it is free and fun to play, we think a wide range of users will appreciate decimating their fowl foes in this game.
