Chicken Invaders 3 is a scrolling shoot-em-up game where the player must take control of a weaponized spaceship in order to defeat hordes of invading alien chickens. Using a multitude of power-ups and weapons, players must push their flying and dodging skills to the limit as 120 waves of invading chickens threaten to take the universe's only defense down. Thankfully, these weapons can all be upgraded up to 12 times, allowing the player a significant arsenal with which to defend against this fowl threat. If that isn't enough, up to four players can come together in multiplayer missions to chase off the chickens.

Chicken Invaders 3 is a solid entry into the shoot-em-up genre, sporting a typical layout, with the player starting at the bottom and enemies arriving from all sides. A fairly intuitive layout ensures that players know exactly where they stand in terms of lives, weapons, and power-ups. With 12 star systems and numerous waves of enemies, this game definitely won't get old quick. Several secret features also await the truly skilled player, as well as 13 medals to show off to friends. Finally, if that isn't enough, Chicken Invaders 3 also sports an online scoreboard, so players can acquire international bragging rights.

Pros:

  • Structure. Chicken Invaders 3 has everything a new player could want in a shoot-em-up game, making it an excellent entry into the genre.
  • Co-op. Many shoot-em-ups do not allow cooperative modes or only offer limited versions.
  • Graphics. Chicken Invaders 3 offers a different approach to the genre's usual 16-bit graphical style, providing a very welcome change of pace.
  • Scoreboard. Many existing shoot-em-up games have scoreboards, but they are maintained by a third party. Having one accessible in the game is an excellent feature.

Cons:

  • Depth. More advanced players may not find the strategy that they crave.
  • Difficulty. Since this is one of the easier games in the genre, once players are finished with it and move on to harder games, the replayability of this game goes down.
