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.

Although being a simple platformer, most levels are different from each other and present different concepts and varied objectives to the final goal.


The Escape from the Hen-Roost Windows Better not drop Bak down there, especially with only one life left.
The Escape from the Hen-Roost Windows Bak is in the future, which appears to be all about toxic waste and alien ships dropping nuclear bombs.
The Escape from the Hen-Roost Windows This boss fight requires a different strategy and not the usual endless shooting.
The Escape from the Hen-Roost Windows Some levels require something different than running to the nearest exit.
