Description

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is a reworked and enhanced version of the original Rocketbirds: Revolution! released as a commercial browser game in 2009. The game was reworked entirely away from the original Flash technology, but keeps the main premise of an albatross soldier trying to overthrow a militaristic republic's leader in a platform game that mixes puzzling and shooting with stealth sequences.

The game reuses a large part of the original setting, but the amount of screens has been extended to 220, doubling the original number. All scenes were enhanced in full 3D for pan, zoom, and parallax effects. It also supports stereoscopic 3D visuals. Next to the existing chapters, four entirely new ones have been added, along with new weapons, enhanced controls, and new cut-scene movies. The game introduces a jetpack the soldier can use to soar the skies in dogfight-like battles.

Next to the main campaign there is a separate cooperative game mode for up to two players, starring the characters Ripper and Roper. It consists of ten chapters with combat and cooperative puzzle-solving.
