Three weeks ago Ratloop Asia released Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken on the Play Station Network and it is a game that does not disappoint. The player starts the game as main character, Hardboiled Chicken and is up against a huge team of evil penguins that has taken over Albatropolis led by their evil leader, Putzki
Hardboiled Chicken has many weapons in his arsenal to take out the villainous penguins and plenty of challenging levels to get through. The gameplay of Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is fun, entertaining, and has easy controls. The music for Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken was all put together by the Sci-Fi rock band New World Revolution and really helps the player feel emerged within the game.
There was not a thing I disliked about Rockbirds: Hardboiled Chicken. The animation was well put together and found it well worth my time to play. With that said, my grade for Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is A. Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is now available for download on the Playstation Network and can be yours for $11.99.
