The Chickening is a side-scrolling platformer starring a chicken. The game's speciality is that everything is composed out of animated real-life pictures. For example, most platforms are human body parts and encountered enemies may be cats or peanuts.

Otherwise, this is a standard platformer: the chicken needs to cross the levels mostly by jumping over gaps and fighting enemies with its laser eyes (either straight ahead or in an angle). Touching enemies removes a part of the health bar and running out - as well as falling into bottomless holes - means the loss of the live and the need to restart from the last checkpoint. The goal of each level is simply to reach the end. Other encountered obstacles are moving platforms and enemies which take more hits than usual.
