Chicken Shift - December 21, '00 by D@Z
Game:Chicken ShiftCompany:Bally/Sente
Type:PuzzlePlayers:1/2

Have you ever played a game where you just cannot get very far despite the hours of practice you put in.
Ok so I have not played this game very much but I am not very good when I do play it,but that does not mean I don`t like it.
This game is made up of 4 levels,the first 2 levels of this game you find yourself in a chicken hut,at the top of the hut there are 4 chickens,each squeezing out eggs at an alarming rate.
There is a wooden frame that the eggs roll down but each path has a missing part and in between them is a pipe to link them up,but as there are only 2 pipes and 4 ways the eggs are coming you have to swap the pipes around and avoid having a smashing time.At the bottom is an empty egg box waiting to be filled and shipped to the supermarket.The first level is pretty easy as you only have to get 3 eggs in the box if you fail and break more that 3 eggs the termites as set free and eat all the frame that the eggs were coming down on,the next level you have to get 9 eggs in the box and becomes a bit more tricky but if you complete that its time for level 3.
The setting for this level is a bit different as you are saving half hatched chicks that are trying to ecsape,each chick needs to get to the window or eggzit (bad joke I know) and its your job to help them.There are 3 platforms and you need to guide them down by using lifts,sounds each yes,but every time you raise and lower the lift there is a
guard that stops the chicks from falling off the end of the platform that opens and closes,so you have to keep you eye out for that or the chicks will go SPLAT.
Level 4 and its chick flipping time,this time you have to get the chicks up to the 4 nests,again its made up of 3 platforms all with flippers on them,flip those chicks to the nests and get a nice points bonus.
The blue and red pipes/flippers are controlled by seperate buttons,as the game goes on the levels increase in difficulty and has my brain working overtime to keep up.
Its a good puzzle game and it looks pretty perfect emulation,so its a big thumbs up to the Mame team.
