What parents need to know

Ease of play

Gameplay requires a combination of targeting and fast reflexes. The controls are simple to learn.

Violence

You'll blast enemy pigs with cannonballs, fireballs, ice blasts, lightning blasts, and so on. The pigs get frozen, fried, or otherwise done in in very cartoony ways. There are lots of clouds of smoke.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Ninja Chicken 2: Shoot 'Em Up is a shooting game in which an army of evil pigs assault the chickens'
fortress, and you need to blast them with various special cannons. It's
all very cartoony in its presentation, yet it's a very different game from the first Ninja Chicken. That game was a sorting game that required players to match chickens into different colored groups. For iPad only, there is a separate "VS" version in which two players can compete head-to-head (one as the chickens, one as the pigs).

QUALITY

NINJA CHICKEN 2: SHOOT 'EM UP is a fast-paced blast-everything game with a very appropriate title. This sequel doesn't feel nearly as original or fresh as its predecessor did, and it would have been nice to include the two-player, head-to-head aspect here, instead of making it a completely separate app. Still, if you're looking for quick-tempo, arcade-style action, Ninja Chicken 2 is a fun choice.
