Crazy Chicken: Pirates Flapping To NA eShop And DSiWare Next Week

Posted by Damien McFerran

Birds of a feather

Teyon has confirmed that point and shoot action title Crazy Chicken Pirates 3D will launch on the North American eShop next week — August 16th, to be exact.

The game — which has sold 15 million copies on other formats — will also be available on DSiWare, minus whatever 3D effects the 3DS version possesses.

Here's the official word from Teyon:

Restore peace to Caribbean shores in Crazy Chicken Pirates 3D from August 16th in North America. Only in Nintendo eShop for $1.99/€2 and on Nintendo DSiWare for 200 Nintendo DSi Points.

The splendor and the beauty of the Chicken Island would make it an ideal vacation spot - if it weren't for those pirates. A one-legged captain, a gunner, a cutlass-wielding chicken and a treasure hunter... the island is home to countless perils, hidden extras and mysteries. The lords of the island are by no means willing to surrender themselves and their treasure without a fight. Crazy Chicken Pirates 3D is a point & shoot action game where you take aim at birds as they scurry through the island and plunge bravely into the waves for a desperate counterattack. You only have 90 seconds to complete your raid by slaying pirates and collecting all hidden treasures.

Interesting to see a developer create two different versions, one for each store. It'd be nice to see others doing this whenever suitable.

I'm gonna download the 3ds version of crazy chicken might get the dsiware version to for only 2 dollars to see the difference between the two version's.

Happy Gaming! (^_^)

I think it'll be required that Chicken Brutus reviews this one. Just sayin'.



SBOY said:

It might be good (look at Bird Mania that everyone say woudn't be good) but I just hope the price won't be higher than 1$ more for 3D effect (or they should put some extra like streetpass, spotpass or stuff like that).



Fabian said:

Wow a licensed Game on Eshop please come to EU at the same price someday^^



BenAV said:

It looks quite terrible... PAL release, please?

I guess also, Bird Mania was decent and Cat Frenzy was awesome so you never know...



Teyon said:

@Fabian This brand was created in Germany (under the name Moorhuhn) so we feel obligated to release this game in Europe and I can ensure you we will as soon as possible! By the way, have you guys seen how some people love Crazy Chicken? In Germany they even made a song about it: (Consider it a joke, not a complementary part of our marketing plan:)



Pikachupwnage said:

We get crap like this but we aren't getting unchained blades, Nightsky, cave story+ or ANY VC?

Ugh NOA get your head in the game!



Pikachupwnage said:

@Pikachupwnage Well perhaps its not fair to call it crap yet and it is a budget game so expecting it to be on the same level as something like unchained blades is unfair.

And yes I just replyed to myself.

I've had fun with Bird Mania, and since it isn't all that expensive, I might consider taking a shot at this too.

On a more serious note i played the first three games of the franchise back in the day. I remember how the first one dragged down productivity in German offices a lot. And it was quite fun to play it in competition with your friends. Ah, the good ol' days when the internet was just beginning to get big.
From the second game on you had to do quite random combos to get the big points. I wasn't really motivated to do that.

PS: My dad even went so far to win a plushy on a fairground. Yes, we really liked these guys.

@Teyon (#11): I considered myself lucky when i managed to fully forget about that song. Way to reopen old sores.



Fabian said:

Cool I can´t wait^^
At first I don´t knew what Crazy Chicken is because I only knew it under the name "Moorhuhn" I´d never know that it was produced in Germany cool to see an IP from my Country.Thank you Teyon for making so many cool Games for so less money.



Undead_terror said:

What they should of done is if you buy either version, you get the other version free since its the same game.



Fabian said:

@undead_terror That doesen´t make any sense why should anybody want the same game 2 times? The only advantage is the 3D so buy the 3D Version make the 3D off and you got the DsiWare Version.



Undead_terror said:

@Fabian But then whats the point in having two versions?, its not a high buget game or just a game that everyone wants and that has to be on the two consoles to make sure no one misses out, its just really pointless.



Undead_terror said:

ya but really they shouldn't go through the troubles of making another version, and like I said its not gonna BIG just some small game.



Ras said:

I hope it's good. It takes me back to the classic Exidy shooters of my youth.



shinobi88 said:

i'll give everyone a hint: this game AIN'T gonna get a good review score. should still get it. Why? bc it's a small game in a limited genre. So the best score it can hope for is 7. That's if it's PERFECT. I'm predicitin a 5. But ignore that. If you like how it looks and you like to shoot stuff, get it. Me personally, shootin chickens on a tropical island surrounded by pirates sounds like a blast. The ONLY dealbreaker the review should offer you or me, is if they say the controls are broken. But even then, you should check multiple reviews, bc not everyone always "gets" it. I saw several reviews that said Kid Icarus Uprising's controls made it unplayable



Fabian said:

I´ll get it even if it gets a 1 I don´t trust NL Revievs any more.Maru´s Mission gots 2 points so I wanted to check out whats wrong with the Game and bought a Cardridge and I loved it I played trough it several times now and the more I play it the more I love it.Or take Chronos Twin it only earns 7 points when it deserved 9 at least.

I'm playing it right now and I'm happy to let you know in advance that the controls are not broken.

Savino said:

I give teyon 3 strikes... All three with that onrail series Heavy Fire.... I really love rail shooter, have almost all for wii and ps3, but I have to say that heavy fire was very disapointing for what I was used to.

I will give this one a shot because my daugther love those games but the are very hard for she to play, so I guess this one will suit her.

But still not expecting something very good... Sorry.



hYdeks said:

ohh look, more shovelware. hits head on desk nintendo just isn't really learning there lesson are they? You wanna be taken seriously by hardcore gamers? STOP RELEASING THIS CRAP!!



C-Olimar said:

WILL SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME HOW I CAN GET PSYCHIC POWERS LIKE THEM??? I really need to find out so I can tell how good games are before they're released! Thanks in advance.



Henmii said:

For only 2 Euro it could be fun, but it looks like the game has only 1 level!



Morpheel said:

Ohhh so it's Teyon's and it will be only 2 dollars? Color me interested now.



Medicham said:

This game looks pretty bad but it got extremly worse at 48 seconds in the trialer when it said: "You only have 90 seconds to complete your raid." Like really???? What a silly time limit. Is that supposed to pressure the gamer? Yeah, its worth 1.99 for a reason, guys.
