Ninja Chicken (or The Funky Chicken Who Thought He Was a Ninja if you go by the title screen, which makes even less sense) doesn’t feel like a ninja game at all. The only “ninjaness” here is the fact that you sometimes pick up throwing stars. And when I say sometimes, I mean hardly ever. Other than that, Ninja Chicken is simply an auto-running platformer starring a chicken. You jump, duck, collect acorns and coins, lay eggs, and dodge hay bales and bullets. It’s mindless fun at first, but the levels don’t differ much from one another, and the missions in them (collect so many acorns, lay so many eggs, etc.) become equally repetitive. Even just swapping out the backgrounds with various locations would have helped, as the “green hills” theme and accompanying, looping music get old very quickly. If you just can’t get enough of the endless runner genre, then by all means, knock yourself out. But there’s really nothing funky or interesting about this particular chicken.
