Chickens Can Dream is a free addicting fall down-style game where you have to guide your chicken through an assortment of dangerous hazards.

Overall Score: 5/5

Chickens Can Dream is quite a good game! The gameplay is impressive, the lasting value is great, and the presentation is pretty good. And for the price of free, how could you pass this game up!?

Gameplay: 5/5

The game is controlled through the accelerometer. Your chicken starts falling down a tunnel, and you guide him left or right by tilting your device. You can also tap the screen to have the chicken flap his wings and slow himself down some. The controls work perfectly. The game has a lot of depth to it thanks to all the various power-ups and dangers you will face. There are various power-ups that help you, like invincibility and slow time, and there are an equal amount of hazards you have to avoid, like table saws and flame throwers. Between collecting corn, avoiding obstacles, and using your power-ups, the game becomes insanely challenging and fun. The balance of the number of lives is just perfect too.

Presentation: 4/5

The presentation of the game is fabulous. It loads fast, resumes perfectly, and looks amazing! The sound effects are also really great. However, there isn’t any music, which is slightly disappointing.

Lasting Value: 5/5

All you do is compete for a high score, but that unlimited gameplay remains really fun after hours of play thanks to all the various power-ups and obstacles. More and more elements are added into the game as you get further into the levels, encouraging you to play longer and longer each time. There’s an online high scores system to compete in, which has three different categories, sorting the submissions by score, time, or what level you got to. There isn’t a weekly leaderboard, but the game itself has so many elements that make it last an incredible amount of time that it still gets a 5/5 for lasting value. And the game even features some achievement-like unlockables which add a little more fun to the game.
