Chicken Journey is a cute, chicken based platformer. The demo took me around Chicken Village and down a scary well into the sewers, looking for lost chicks.
Pecking through rope, moving blocks, and changing water levels adds an element of problem solving to the usual ‘time your jump for the floating platform’ mechanic.
There are frequent save points (very frequent, one at almost every stage) so if you do plop your chicken into water you won’t have to retread your steps very much. This might take down the difficulty too much for you, but if you’re like me – who gets very frustrated at missing the same jump again and again – it might be appreciated!
You go on your adventure carrying a stylish backpack, and there are plenty of slots in there for ….. things. I don’t know, but it does imply that the full game will have more complexities as you collect and figure out when to use different equipment or items.
