Ovi Gaming Review:
Phone Used For Review - Nokia 5800 XpressMusic (games may be different on different phone models)
Gameplay - Based on the traditional game of the same name, you play against a computer opponent who throws chickens at you which you try to avoid, then you change sides and try to hit them with chickens. If you get hit by a chicken you can still stay in the game if you manage to keep your balance, but if you fall over you've lost. There are a number of unlockable players to choose from, all cute animals, and a tournament mode where you work your way through various opponents.
Graphics - Nice cartoony graphics with console-style artwork. It looks a bit like a Mega Drive or SNES game. Unfortunately the touchscreen version (for the 5800, N97, 5530 etc) only works in half-screen mode.
Sound - Chirpy upbeat synthesiser reggae, ska and cowboy tunes, with brief incidental music when you win or lose.
Multiplayer & Online - The game claims you can upload your scores online, but the feature didn't work for this reviewer.
Overall - The game looks and sounds good, and the developers have done a pretty professional job on everything... except the gameplay. The game itself is very boring to play, and has almost no depth. There isn't much variety between levels and it just doesn't really keep you interested. Fans of the genre may get something from this though.
Score - 40%
