Deep underground, an evil turkey called Kuku De-Mon plotted revenge on the entire chicken kingdom, based on a myth that the turkey race has been banished by chickens. On a night of a full moon, a fortress blasted out of the ground and turkey soldiers attacked and kidnapped all the chickens to an underground prison.

The player takes control of a rooster called Bak, that happened to survive the raid, and his mission to find the B.O.T. - Book of Truth. This book tells what really happened 1000 years ago and will either crumble Kuku De-Mon's evil plan or doom the entire chicken race.

The Escape from the Hen-Roost is a basic platformer, the player can run, jump and shoot Nitro Beaks. The game takes the player through various levels and bosses including: Sgt. Henshoot's barracks, Dr. Mouchtenhouven's labs, the future and underwater.
