Announced just a few days ago, Chicken Raid is the latest Adobe Flash game that FDG has been working to make iOS-friendly. And as promised, today is the day the chickens have raided the App Store.
On the surface, Chicken Raid, which is based on Chicken House, may seem very similar to Angry Birds, and the two do contain a lot of similar elements. Although, Chicken Raid certainly has its own feathery flare to flaunt.
At the forefront, it’s the birds causing the havoc this time. Comparable to the Green Pigs, the chickens are selfish and relentless, therefore, they must be taken out. However, in Chicken Raid, there isn’t a character for the player to control and the destruction is done through a different physics mechanic.
Like nearly every other physics puzzler, each level is a puzzling contraption of elements that must be destroyed in a specific manner. Instead of launching items at structures, just tap on the wood or glass blocks and planks to smash or damage them. The essential objective is to kill the chickens and smash the eggs, but shattering gems provides extra points and cracking open chests releases gold coins.
Added to the in-game store account when collected, coins allow the purchasing of massively powerful weapons: meteors, missiles, and nuclear bombs. Obviously, these are meant to complete a level in full, so utilize them only when necessary.
Taking an overall look, the game features four chapters, 96 total levels, star rating system, built-in store, Retina display support, unlockable comics, an original soundtrack, and Game Center integration.
Chicken Raid is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, 32GB and 64GB third generation iPod touch, fourth generation iPod touch and newer running iOS 4.0 or later, and available in the App Store for $0.99. Chicken Raid HD is compatible with iPad running iOS 4.0 or later, and available in the App Store for $2.99.
