So have you ever wondered what it would be like if Earth suddenly were invaded by a ton of chickens from outer space? Chicken Invaders 2 Christmas Edition might give you a hint.

As the last invasion attempt by the alien chickens was repelled you are now doing some mopping up in the outskirts of our solar system. On one mission you come in contact with a huge chicken invasion force heading towards Earth, it’s time to gear up again.

The story is pretty humours, if you aren’t an animal rights activist. However the story isn’t very original, I mean how many times has earth been invaded now by aliens of different kinds?

Chicken Invaders 2 Christmas Edition resembles pretty much any other arcade shooter out there. It’s very similar to some early PC arcade games. Your task is simply to move your ship and shoot the chickens.

The chickens try to defend themselves by dropping exploding Christmas ornaments at you. In the original version the ornaments are eggs. What I like about the game is that the developers have managed to create some diversity, sometimes you have to avoid meteor showers and stuff like that.

Chicken Invaders 2 features really good graphics with nebulas and planets as backgrounds. It’s looks beautiful and it’s really nice with the snow and holiday music that they’ve added in the Christmas edition. The game is pretty extensive with 110 levels, the levels are pretty similar but they differ some when it comes to the backgrounds and sometimes the enemies and obstacles.

The game can also be played in hot seat mode. This means that two players can sit in front of the same computer and blast chickens away, very fun and an underrated type of multiplayer option. It’s also possible to compare your score with other players from around the world using the Chicken Invaders Internet services.

A nice feature while playing is that you gain experience points which gives you speed and efficiency. So a player that just starts the game will have a harder time than one that has played it for a long time.

Overall Chicken Invaders 2 Christmas Edition is a nice arcade game. It doesn’t bring much news though and we have all seen it before. As for the Christmas Edition I can only say that it creates a good cosy feeling.
