June 27, 2012 in Games
[prMac.com] Melbourne, Australia - Responding to player feedback, Games for Gummie has been busy hand crafting felt, has announced an update to the fun and quirky Shuriken Chicken.
This update includes:
* An underground cave level, dodge spiky rocks and obstacles while destroying crazy drill mice and drill bats that get in your way
* A snow blizzard level, run through a blustery snow blizzard while avoiding sharp ice shards and evil snowmen
* Post your scores on Twitter and Facebook to boast to your friends about how far you got
Players control Shuriken Chicken using three simple gestures anywhere on the screen: swipe up to jump, swipe down to slide, and tap to throw shurikens.
Gameplay is smooth and responsive, and the stocky chicken never stops moving his feet until he loses all his lives. Far more visually appealing than ordinary and sterile computer graphics, the many sizes and colors of felt in different layers create a randomly textured world that is both beautiful and unique. Truly as much a hand-made, labor of love as an iOS game can be, Shuriken Chicken contains endless, witty, visual surprises and hour after hour of challenging, fast-paced gameplay.
What reviewers have been saying about Shuriken Chicken:
"How often do we see ninja chickens that can jump high while flinging shurikens across the arena? Not often, I'd wager. More importantly, the visual style of Shuriken Chicken is pretty special." - 148apps

"Hidden gem. Seriously, if you're an endless runner fan (or even if you're not) you're probably going to love this one." - Arcadelife
