Chicken Invaders 4 is an excellent scrolling shooter for Windows Phone which will throw you at the edge of the universe to fight crazed chickens thriving in the open space. The game has excellent graphics, amazing special effects and a very dynamic gameplay. The sound is great, too, and goes well with the gameplay.
GameplayAt your disposal there is a small spacecraft equipped with various types of guns and blasters which are activated after your collecting certain bonuses. It turns out to be, perhaps, rather a gradual upgrade of weapons which is retained even when the death of the ship. However, in some cases, a weapon becomes weaker by one point of upgrade, but, first, it doesn't always happen, and second, it's still better than starting the modernization of guns out of the chute.
During the destruction of huge flocks of chickens, you will be given the opportunity to fill up the budget and power. However, the coins and drumsticks appearing on the battlefield instead of destroyed chickens, need to be collected at first, and you may be prevented from doing so not only by still-alive birds, but also by eggs flying all over the place and exploding on first contact with your vehicle. Every minute it's getting hotter in the vast space. You ship is tried to destroy by both adult chickens and quite inexperienced feathered ones, and the most important obstacle in the game is the bosses, encounters with whom you cannot avoid under any circumstances.
ControllingThe game controlling is carried out by sliding a finger across the screen, and the best thing is that you will not obscure your spaceship. You can touch the screen anywhere, and the ship begins to repeat the movements after the finger even when you are in another part of the playing field. While firing at the feathered enemies you need to consider that your cannon can overheat and break down for some time. The temperature indicator of the weapon is in the upper left corner of the screen, and it is very easy to watch over it.
ResumeBetween shots the cannon cools quickly, but if carried to its extreme temperatures, you would have had to wait until it cools completely, and only then you will be able to open fire again. The game is free but only in the demo-version. If it catches your fancy, the purchase will have to be carried out through its interface and only after you have mastered the first boss.
