A great game, a really, really excellent game, but may not appeal to hardcore death fans.

Play the part of fowl guy, Alfred Chicken, in a 21-level comedy action game. Puzzles and three Meka Chicken bosses stand between Alfred and the missing eggs he must collect. Cluck, cluck!

Nothing stunningly original or frighteningly intriguing, but it all succeeds due to some perfectly fine tuned gameplay. Challenge and intricacy increase steadily throughout, and a key indicator of a truly well-designed game, this - the restart points are perfectly spaced and placed. Okay, okay, fair enough. Let's not lose control. It's still just a platform game, slightly repetitive, not much of a graphical treat, and unlikely to be looked at again once completed. But the execution can't be faulted and, bluntly, I liked it.

Alfred Chicken puts on a fast-paced, brain-draining platform performance. Action game fans can definitely put their eggs in Alfred's basket.

A cute game that the younger ones will enjoy more. Alfred is a slow-moving game requiring more strategy than being able to run, jump and grab items. It takes a while to get in the swing of it though.

Alfred eignet sich, was den Sound betrifft, am besten. zum Einschlafen, die Grafik erinnert an das gute alte NES, aber nach einer längeren Einspielphase lernt man den unkomplizierten Spielablauf doch noch schätzen, der insgesamt jedoch nur Einsteiger und die ganz Kleinen zu begeistern weiß. Jump‘n Run-Profis brauchen‘s nicht.

Alfred kommt während seiner Mission durch allerlei verschiedene Grafikwelten: das Buchstabenland, die „Techno-Welt“ und der Regalgarten sind nur drei Beispiele. Für Abwechslung ist somit zwar gesorgt, aber trotzdem ist das Game nicht das Gelbe vom Ei. Die Sprites wissen zwar durchaus zu gefallen, aber von den recht monotonen Backgrounds kann man das nicht unbedingt behaupten. Als Farbverlauf verwöhnter SNES-User hat man da schon Besseres gesehen. Das gleiche gilt auch für das oft zu simple Leveldesign. Und ein paar mehr Gegnertypen hätten wirklich auch nicht geschadet. Unter dem Strich: Den 16-Bit-Alfred ist natürlich nicht schlechter als der NES- und Game-Boy-Gockel. Aber auf dem SNES hätte man wesentlich mehr machen können. Herausgekommen ist nur ein Jump&Run von solider Durchschnittsqualität. Kann man haben, muß aber nicht sein.

Overall, Alfred Chicken is just one of those games. I'd recommend leaving it. Like the last donut, it will probably just make you sick.
