Ninja Chicken HD



Frantic fun for one or two players on a single iPad.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

Playing is very simple, but increasing speed will turn higher levels into a frantic free-for-all.

Violence & scariness

Chickens moved to the wrong color pad fall over, looking ill (or possibly dead). Accidentally placing a chicken on a fire square causes them to turn into black ashes and disintegrate. Robot chickens give off a small explosion when you touch them, but it doesn't hurt anybody -- it just affects your score. It's all extremely cartoony.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Ninja Chicken HD is a fast-paced and frantic color-matching game that can be played individually or with others. Two players can play together on one iPad in either competitive or cooperative modes, grabbing different colored ninja chickens and placing them on their appropriately colored bases. There is some mild, cartoony violence in the way incorrectly placed chickens are eliminated from the boards (collapsing or burning up).

Is it any good?


As a solo game, NINJA CHICKEN HD offers up a very fun, fast-paced good time. But as a two-player game, it becomes an outrageous high-speed finger-flicking contest. In the game, ninja chickens (each from one of four different colored clans) come down conveyor belts; you need to grab them and deposit them on the mat that matches their clan color. You also have to dispose of evil pigs by safely placing them between mats, and make sure you completely avoid the explosive robot chickens. When two players vie against one another, they are each trying to grab chickens to their own mats. In co-op mode, four hands can work as one, trying to sort an ever-speedier line of ninja chickens. It's a blast.
