Description

Alfred the chicken must rescue his friends and his bird (pardon the pun) Floella from the Meka Chickens. The result is a platform game across differently-themed levels, which are finished by either climbing to the top of the level or killing a boss. Bonus games and secret rooms have been included, and progression sometimes requires solving positional puzzles.

Alfred cannot fly, but he can use ramps to jump up and hit enemies with his bionic beak - this kills them, but any other contact will hurt Alfred. Watch out for spiked snails though. Other enemies include whales armed with guns, and stray bombs.

Trivia

Alfred Chicken Party

Mindscape came up with a unique promotional ploy for this game - they got a guy to go round dressed in a chicken suit, and entered him into the European Parliament Elections under the 'Alfred Chicken' party banner. This earned lots of attention outside the specialist press (at a time when videogames were being blamed for every societal problem), but surprisingly he didn't win the seat.

Promotional Number

Another (much less elaborate) promotional gimmick used by Mindscape for this game was a toll-free number you could call (1-800-ALFREDC) that would play a recorded message from Alfred himself.
