Chicken Invaders 5: Cluck of the Dark Side is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from EGGstremely EGGdicting Game! Ever play one of those games that are so frustrating you cannot stop playing it? This is one of those games, 5 starting lives isn't enough, so you find yourself starting over and over, learning from your mistakes as you progress just a little further each time. Just like the original space invaders, you must defend your planet from space invaders, the vicious Chickens! The Chicken invaders have unique weapons and defenses, the hens lay eggs that will completely obliterate your spaceship should you take a direct hit or even if you mistakenly broadside a falling egg. When you blast the full grown chickens, they will reward you with delicious chicken legs and even whole roasted chickens, which can only be collected when your spaceship runs over them, which isn't always easy when the egg bombs are everywhere! There are also keys to collect, burgers, presents and weapon upgrades to snag. There are several achievements available and a high score leader board that will list all of your top scores (and the scores of other players on your computer) The options are vast, starting with the fact that you can choose the method you want to use to control your spaceship and weapons, your keyboard, your mouse, and even TOUCHSCREEN! The best feature in my opinion, is that you get to customize your spaceship, as you progress you will unlock backgrounds and even more spaceship upgrades. For starters, you will choose the base color of the spaceship, the color of the cockpit, and the color of the engine flames both inner and outer. There are several colors and shades to choose from and you will unlock paint options for the fuselage, the weapons pod, the tail wing, and even the density and shininess of the spaceship! In my opinion, this is a very addicting game that would be awesome on your phone as well. The graphics have come a long way since the days of Space Invaders, not to mention the fact that the mouse has greatly improved our ability to control the spaceship. Give it a try, but be warned, you're gonna get hooked on this comical chicken invading game, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chicken Invaders-I'll spare you the egg puns! I purchased this without hesitation as I have loved all the previous games in the series. I wondered how the developers would manage to keep the game fresh but they have done it. Shooting from the right to the left or while spinning made a change from shooting from the bottom up. The undersea planet is particularly clever and I had a good laugh when the chickens with snorkels first appeared. I also like the added features like being able to choose the colour of your ship and the chart which shows your achievements to date. The storyline is as witty and clever as ever. I look forward to many happy hours playing. It makes a nice change from the hidden object games I normally play.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another epic adventure! We love this one! Consistent with their past efforts, the developing team as put together another package that is a magnet to our time. The graphics, speed of play, and soundtrack are second to none. The story line is witty and keeps us smiling to the very end. The level of challenge is great, though even the lowest level requires a certain degree of attention and steady hand. As far as we can tell, the key to finishing any level is patience and a commitment to "wait for it" (impulsive reactions will cost you a life every time.) Success on the more challenging levels can also be significantly improved by taking time to earn enough keys to open certain "unlockables": The Chicken Invader series has been a favorite in this household for a long time, and this latest edition has already claimed the title of "most requested game". To the team...WELL DONE! (and thanks!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a Different Chicken Invaders Game! At first I thought this game was going to be just like all the other Chicken Invader Games but I was pleasantly surprised by all the NEW FEATURES that are in this game. Darth Chicken attacks, underwater sea adventure, night time game, Soldier chickens attacks and different weapons. This time, we have a game goal board that comes up between levels so we can see what award we still need to achieve. Also, my favorite new feature is that we can customize the color of the ship and fuel! I loved all the other Chicken Invader games but this one is my favorite by far! Lots of references to other space story lines that the adults will all enjoy and the characters are rambunctious and harder to defeat! Come on and give this game a try. I highly recommend this game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This isn't your grandpa's Chicken Invaders! The developers listened - it's not the same old thing! There are some new weapons, the enemy tactics are different, the ship is customizable and the story line looks fun so far. I stopped the demo long before I finished it to buy this game. It's challenging, fun and funny. If you liked the previous versions of Chicken Invaders you'll probably love this one too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME!!!! Another amazing game in the series! The story is great, game play is very challenging and graphics are superb! There's some new features too. An excellent game to pass the time. Very entertaining! :-) My only gripe is it sometimes hiccups on my laptop.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Has great potential, but.... This game looks good and could really be something if not for a couple things. First of all, the game is too difficult. I've only gotten as far as level 10, where you take on the "Henterprise," and it seems like I've already gotten to a point where it's going to take a lot more time and patience than I have if I want to go further. The other issue I have is the fact that when I lose all my lives at level 10, I have to start all over again at the beginning of the game. It really isn't much fun to play the same few levels over and over, knowing I'll invariably bite the dust when I encounter the Henterprise. So like I said, this game really could have been great, but I don't get any enjoyment out of knowing I only have a few minutes of gameplay before inevitably losing. Call it "challenging" if you want, but to me it's just frustrating.
