The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The controls are simple to learn and easy to use for the most part. The game grows increasingly challenging as you move along.

Violence & Scariness

You fling chickens into the air to free chicks, but the chickens and chicks bounce when they hit the ground, and are unhurt. Aliens fall to the ground where they disappear; you can also tap released aliens for bonus points.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Chicken Balls HD is a trajectory-based physics puzzler in which you launch a heroic bird at cosmic bubbles full of baby chicks that have been kidnapped by aliens. The violence in this game is minimal, since you're shooting to free baby birds, not to destroy the enemies. You can hit the UFO and pop aliens out of it, but if that happens, you simply tap the loose aliens for bonus points; otherwise they fall to the ground and eventually disappear. Be aware that the game can connect to OpenFeint.

Is it any good?

CHICKEN BALLS follows the proven gameplay formula of hero-flinging physics games like Angry Birds, and adds an element of randomness that resembles the ball bouncing arcade puzzler Peggle. You see, you're not alone in rescuing the stolen baby chicks -- you have cow, pig, and sheep allies (also in ball form) that can help you collect eggs and free hatchlings. You just need to knock those allied animal balls from their perches and send them bouncing around the gamescreen, ricocheting off rubber bands and pinball bumpers. If you play your shots right, you can create a wonderful chaos of boinging, binging animals -- and score tons of points in the process. As of the time of this review, there are only two game worlds (though each has 25 levels to it), but a notice from the developers promises more to come.
