Short, but funMarkDeejay | March 16, 2013 | See all MarkDeejay's reviews »
A short (around 3 hours long) action platformer starring a chicken. What's not to love ? There are 15 missions, and three of these missions will have you flying around with a jetpack (don't worry, you'll still be shooting). There are a few puzzles as well, but thankfully that's kept to a minimum. The game itself has the perfect length; any longer and it would've overstayed its welcome. The graphics look sharp and detailed; the blood splatters on the wall look quite amazing for example. You really can't complain about the art direction here. The gunshots and other sounds are pretty good and the little voice acting there is is average, but passable. All in all an enjoyable game.
Good shooter with hilarious characterspanz3r88 | Dec. 22, 2012 | See all panz3r88's reviews »
Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is a good old style 2D shooter with also some puzzle. Hardboiled is a strange bird similar to Rambo and it's only the protagonist of a story with many crazy characters. In each level you must fight the enemies that try to kill you and sometimes solve some enviromental puzzles that introduce a good variety in the game. You can play the adventure in singleplayer or in coop with a friend. Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is a fun shooter and you can also get it for a low price
Beautiful 2D platform, good soundtrack but very short Campaign.fable2 | Dec. 22, 2012 | See all fable2's reviews »
Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is a beautiful 2D platform with an amazing soundtrack. Unfortunately it's very short (2-3 hours a bit more if you go for the platinum)), so when you finish it, you'll wish there were more levels to play.
The game puts you in the shoes of the bada*s Hardboiled Chicken (called that because it's egg was boiled before it was born). You join a Rebellion against the bad penguins who want to destroy the world. Basically you have to solve puzzles to progress in the game with the occasionally gunfight. I say occasionally because even though there are many enemies to kills they don't really pose a treat. There are also three levels with jetpack action that are really cool and breaks the pace of the game a little.
There is also a local co-op option for the game, which puts you in the shoes of two small birds that have to rescue the general's daughter. You basically play trough the same areas of the single player game, but with some co-op puzzles to solve.
Goooood Game!kalil | Dec. 21, 2012 | See all kalil's reviews »
At first is rare but is very good game with a great soundtrack and a well-implemented learning curve. For all that we like 2D games Flash type Shank, Mark of Ninja, Limbo etc, you will like this also. I'm surprised how little publicity has been given and the few notes that you are putting deserves more recognition.

This game is a blast of concepts, I never saw a game with this humour and dark setting, sometimes is hilarious but other moments are really cruel, you can't imagine that a penguin mafia and our main protagonist Hardboiled Chickend can be so bloody and sadistic.
The action on this side scroller game is very high and the controls respond very good for this, the graphics are amazing even sometimes they look very realistic and you can enjoy the great Co-op mode with a friend
The price now is very cheap and I recommend to buy it if you want a funny challenge.
