Moorhuhn / Crazy Chicken variants

Group Description

Games which closely follow the gameplay of the early Moorhuhn series: The player has a fixed position and can rotate 360°. Animals or other objects to shoot appear and disappear at the screen and shooting them rewards points and possibly power ups. There is a time limit and the goal is to get as many points as possible.

In Germany the first Moorhuhn game was very popular in 1999 and and naturally a lot of successors and similar games were released.

Limitations:
The game needs to follow the above described gameplay principle closely to be accepted in this group. Games with Rail Shooter segments - which the German gaming press likes to call "Moorhuhn sequences" - or similar mini games are not the focus of this group.
