Chicken Invaders 3 Xmas Chicken Invaders 3 Xmas
Chicken Invaders 3, here is a twist on a classic arcade game. It is a pretty humorous game with really tight gameplay. I wish I could say it was free but it is $2.99 to buy after the free trial of course. The developers even put out two other variants, one for Christmas and the other for Easter but again, wish they were free add-ons (skins) to the already $2.99 game.

Chicken Invaders 3 is an arcade game for your Windows Phone that is designed in the tradition of classic arcade games such as Space Invaders and Galaga. The key difference being that instead of battling alien space ships, you face hostile space chickens.

Graphically, the game is very appealing and the game play is somewhat challenging. You dodge a barrage of eggs, asteroids and treasure chests as you work you way to battle the various bosses of the game. Ship navigation can be a little tricky but overall, Chicken Invaders 3 is worth giving that trial version a go.

The storyline of Chicken Invaders 3 has intergalactic chickens invading Earth, seeking revenge for the oppression of their earthly brethren. Colonel Sanders is in big trouble! Your job is to take the fight to space and defend the planet and our ability to enjoy a bucket of extra crispy.

The Main Menu with Chicken Invaders 3 has options to launch the game or view the gaming options. Game options include controls choices, graphics levels, sound, language and access to local leaderboards. The one glaring item missing from the options menu is a help screen. It's not a complicated game to figure out but some aspects take a bit to understand.

When you go to launch a game, you'll first see an options screen where you can continue a paused game or start a new mission. When you start a new mission, you choose which gaming level you want to compete at (rookie, veteran, superstar hero). You can also view your career achievements from this screen which includes medals, statistics and unlockables earned.

Once you set your game options and are sent into the game, you'll run through a series of story boards (you can advance by tapping the screen) to eventually get to the gaming screen. The layout of the gaming screen has your score and weapons status in the upper left corner. In the lower left corner are your vital stats including lives, bonus missiles, and chicken parts collected. There is a lightning bolt that I have yet to figure out what it measures.

All in all, I liked Chicken Invaders 3. You have an arcade game with quality graphics and plenty of challenges. The transitions between levels/stages can be a little on the lengthy side and the lack of a help section can be a little frustrating.
