Ghost Chicken review (iOS / Universal)

October 18, 2011

“You are the Ghost, that I miss the most”

10 word description: Retro maze clearing game with Halloween style theme. 4 difficulties.

10 word review: Warped offspring of Snake and Pac-Man is addictive spooky fun.

Yesterday, I was a medieval catapult. Today I am a ghost chicken with a really long neck

You will like this if you enjoy: Retro arcade maze games – Pac-Man, Amidar, etc. Snake (because of the long neck).

The good news: Simple, immediately accessible arcade style gameplay. Functional retro graphics. Controls work well (better on iPad than iPhone/iPod due to available screen space). 4 difficulty levels.

The bad news: It’s a bit easy and a bit short. I beat “Hard” on my first attempt without losing more than a couple of lives and I wasn’t being particularly careful. This may not necessarily be bad news for all players.

Arcadelife verdict: Overall, it’s pretty good for what it is and it held my interest in one session long enough for me to beat medium and hard difficulties. The control method – where the chicken head attempts to reach the place where you are touching the screen – works very well on iPad and is only slightly more fiddly on the smaller devices. If you’re looking for a retro style action/maze game, particularly if you want one that features a ghostly chicken with a ridiculously long neck, this would be a great choice.
