I don’t play too many 3DS games, but one that caught my eye was Chicken Wiggle. It had a sense of wonder and adventure to it that I found immensely attractive. The great visuals and excellent looking gameplay had me hooked from the first time I saw it and I needed to experience it. After playing it, I have to say that Atooi has another masterpiece on their hands.

Chicken Wiggle is a 2D platformer with excellent controls, and lovable protagonists. Normally 2D platformers these days feel a need to guide you through every last detail but Chicken Wiggle lets you jump right in and learn it for yourself. I found this refreshing, and despite needing a few minutes to get the hang of it, it was all for the best. The learning curve is not that bad and honestly, this is a game for platformer fans of all degrees of experience.

There is an issue with the difficulty varying wildly at times, which can be annoying but I don’t feel its a major problem. Overall, I find the gameplay amazing, as while the protagonists moves are basic, there is a lot that can be done with them. Chick can jump run, and attack enemies and obstacles, while the worm can reach far-away platforms and walls with stickiness. Using them both in creative ways makes a things a lot more interesting and opens new possibilities. The levels are well designed and give you a lot of room to experiment in, and this isn’t even considering the various power ups you get throughout the levels.

Chicken Wiggle has some incredible music as well, and the soundtrack just feels fun. The soundtrack perfect companion piece to this game and helps further the experience, so my hat goes off to Atooi for that as well. Visually the game is excellent as well, and has a great art style that just works for it.

If anything, it is sad that the game does have an end to it, but even then it doesn’t have to end. The game has an excellent level editor that seems to take after Super Mario Maker, and lets you share your levels with others. Its does have a drawback though, in that the interface is a bit unintuitive and can be more cumbersome that you would expect. Still sharing and playing levels is fun, and I had a blast with the levels I played from others.

I have to encourage everyone to play this game. It is amazing and deserves attention.

Atooi, one of the two studios to come from the split of Renegade Kid, has some great pedigree behind their game design and a lot of experience. This looks like another classic in waiting and should be an awesome experience.

 

Will you be buying it?

The Nintendo Switch will be getting some more indie greats in due time. Jools Watsham of Atooi has revealed that Mutand Mudds and Treasurenauts are in development for the system.

It is interesting which games Nintendo is wanting on the Switch, given some of the recent drama.  Hopefully these will be good ports, because the games are amazing.
