Drop The Chicken (iPhone) Review: Use Physics, Save The Chicken!
The premise of Drop The Chicken is really interesting; it’s a physics-based puzzle game players are tasked with moving items around like elastic bands, barriers, balloons, etc to guide a falling chicken back to its nest while getting as many bugs as possible and avoiding obstacles like bombs and buzzsaws. I do not need to tell you what happens to the chicken when he comes into contact with those obstacles, lets just say even Colonel Sanders wouldn’t want the leftovers.
While games like Cut The Rope had all the tension normally associated with a trapeze act, Drop The Chicken brings about the excitement of free falling without a parachute, with only physics and the items you use being the only two things that will bring back the chicken in one piece.
The levels are tough with some of the obstacles placed fiendishly throughout the levels. I’ve to report that in my play-through, I didn’t managed to get three stars (the maximum there is) for like 50% of the levels that I’ve played. Points are awarded based on how little the items are moved (the less the better) and the number of bugs that the player managed to obtain in that single level.
Like many of it’s competitors (quite a number springs to mind), Drop The Chicken provides a large number of levels, spread across 4 different themes, automatically bringing in value for money as the game just costs USD 0.99. Having said that, I’m pretty impressed at the level of quality in Sharp Creative Agency’s maiden game on iOS devices.
