Thank you Black Shell Media for sending us this game to review!

Many people take for granted that games that appear on Steam stay there. I’m the proud owner of a few games that are no longer available on Steam or anywhere else digitally. Dumb Chicken 2: One Way Out falls into that category and now it can only be purchased on its original platform, iOS.

Dumb Chicken 2: One Way Out doesn’t hide its mobile roots very well. The first clue is the loading screen that tells you to tap the screen to continue. Pressing a controller or keyboard button works just as well for those without touch screens. The gameplay follows the mobile formula with quick levels that give you between one and three awards depending on your performance.

Dumb Chicken 2: One Way Out
Highlights:

Strong Points: Over ninety lighthearted and stealthy levels
Weak Points: Obvious mobile port; no longer available on PC
Moral Warnings: Cartoon violence

There are over ninety levels and many of them can be completed in a minute or less if you’re stealthy enough. Your goal in each level is to rescue the kidnapped chickens who will then follow you in a single file line. Of course, this is easier said than done, as there are many creatures on patrol guarding them.

Some of the creatures have lines of vision and predictable patterns to avoid, but others do not. Not only do you have to keep your chicken out of sight, but all of the rescued ones need to remain hidden as well. Thankfully, there are many obstacles to hide behind, or bushes to hide in. Getting to hiding spots quickly can be challenging as the terrain changes. Traversing through grass is a lot quicker than swamplands.

Along with collecting kidnapped chickens, you can collect gold coins and randomly placed power-ups. The gold coins can be used to purchase power-ups. The power-ups include distractions as well as temporary cloaking abilities. There are six different chicken characters to unlock and they each come with a built-in ability. In total, there are forty-one Steam achievements that can be earned by completing the areas as different characters.

Score Breakdown:
Higher is better
(10/10 is perfect)

Game Score - 78%
Gameplay - 16/20
Graphics - 7/10
Sound - 7/10
Stability - 5/5
Controls - 4/5

Morality Score - 96%
Violence - 8/10
Language - 10/10
Sexual Content - 10/10
Occult/Supernatural - 10/10
Cultural/Moral/Ethical - 10/10

Visually, this game is quite colorful and the characters are rather cute. The HD graphics look good and scale well for PC. The levels are all well thought out and offer different challenges to keep them interesting. There is some cartoon violence but it’s pretty tame.

The sound effects are cute and get the job done. In the game’s intro, you’ll hear some catchy music, but during the game itself it’s just background noises.

As far as I can tell, Dumb Chicken 2: One Way Out is no longer available on PC. When it was, it sold for $2.99 and was a pretty good deal. The mobile version is still available for $0.99 and is worth looking into if you’re in the market for a lighthearted stealth game.

About Us:

Christ Centered Gamer looks at video games from two view points. We analyze games on a secular level which will break down a game based on its graphics, sound, stability and overall gaming experience. If you’re concerned about the family friendliness of a game, we have a separate moral score which looks at violence, language, sexual content, occult references and other ethical issues.
