Chicken Range

Fun and Quirky shoot-em-up game.

The object of the game is to shoot the chickens using an array of different weaponry which you can also pay to upgrade. As you kill each chicken, a new chicken is respawned. Gameplay is set over a field twice as wide as the screen, so you must be constantly moving your aim side to side in order to reach the whole game field.

To increase the difficulty, the chickens throw eggs at the screen to obscure the player’s field of view.

During the level, ammo crates drop at varying intervals which will refresh your ammo levels.

Carry up to 6 weapons with you; only a couple are provided for free, the remaining weapons will need to be bought from the Range Shop, where you can also purchase extra ammo packs.

The game contains 8 different levels. Each level introduces different baddie chickens with varying difficulties to kill them due to enhanced protection gear.

More details will be announced soon…

    Oh no

    The shovelware begins…

    • Fore

      I’d like to say I’m surprised, but that would be disingenuous.

    • Kalmaro

      Well people DID demand more third party stuff…

      • Fore

        And we both know this is the furthest from what they meant 😛

    • Dascylus

      It’s worse when shovelware gets physical copies.

      • Felipe M.

        Master Blaster Zero doesn’t get a physical release but this crap does.

        • Velen (Not WoW)

          MBZ is far from shovelware. : I

          • Felipe M.

            I didn’t say MBZ is shovelware, you misread it. MBZ is an amazing game which deserves a physical release yet it doesn’t have one.

          • Velen (Not WoW)

            Oops. Sorry.

        • Dascylus

          I know, right?

      • Padre

        Also its Blaster Master, not the other way around.

    • GoldenTriforce

      Also “Random” games normally are stuff like Katamari, Rhythm Tengoku, and Mr. Mosquito. This is just… bad…

    • Mohammad Yasin

      how do u know its shovelware these could be good and shovelware doesn’t get physical titles

      • GoldenTriforce

        Shovelware existed long before the days of digital distribution. Also there is a very good chance that “vegas party” is shovelware.

  • Reggie

    I’m pretty sure I could draw a better boxart for Chicken Range than whoever did that.

    • Blake Good

      I wouldn’t be shocked if Chicken Range turns out to be a sequel or port to Chicken Shoot on the Wii and DS. *Gulps*

    • Felipe M.

      You should check out the cover of VR Kart for PSVR. It’s laughably bad. lol

      • Reggie

        Wow. That looks so outdated. Like something from the PS1 and N64 days. Though I will admit that compared to Chicken Range, it’s a lot better.

    • Velen (Not WoW)

      I could too, probably

  • More shovelware… yeah…!

  • These are also coming out on PS4.

    I actually wouldn’t mind having the Vegas Party game.

  • BarryDunne

    There is a date for for Chicken Range – This item will be released on February 23, 2018.

    • Blake Good

      Hopefully, better games for the Switch, are released on that date.

    • Felipe M.

      Pre-ordered in case this becomes out of stock so I can resell it, otherwise I’ll just cancel the pre-order.

    • Kalmaro

      I love your profile pic.

      • SwitchDoggoh

        Thank you.

        • The username isn’t bad either….it’s pretty cool

          • SwitchDoggoh

            Heh, thanks i made it to sound silly, but it is cool.

          • You would mind join my discord server, you seems a very creative person and I feel you will make a great contribution to our community.

          • SwitchDoggoh

            I would love to.

    • Blake Good

      We need an Angry Video Game Shovelware Nerd (AVGSN).

      • SwitchDoggoh

        Yes!

      • Felipe M.

        There’s a lot of PS1 games for him to do. Anything beyond that still feels too new.

        • Blake Good

          Yeah, he needs to review PS1 version of Glover. The N64 version was great but the PS1 version sucked bad.

  • Stuart

    I love the title of this article.

    • Felipe M.

      It would be even better and funnier if it were “Random”.

  • Dascylus

    I question Nintendo UK’s standards if they allow shovelware to get physical copies…

    • Stuart

      Well,if the studios behind these games have enough money to publish physical copies for their shovelware,I think for Nintendo it falls in the “why not” territory.

  • Apfel

    No 3rd party support my aß

    • Fore

      Well, I wouldn’t group “shovelware” under “support” but that’s just me.

    • Felipe M.

      To hell with FighterZ, Chicken Range is the real deal!

  • Apfel
    • Felipe M.

      One of the worst Monster Jam games but hey, it’s something?

  • hi-chan!

  • R.Z.

    Gotta fill the bargain bins !

  • Tlink7

    Did the Wii U even have any shovelware? xD

  • JasonBall

    I thought random shovelware switch games started with March 3’s 1-2-Switch

    • Fore

      Except that it has Nintendo’s name and marketing all over it.

  • wschamps05

    maybe the shovelware’s a good sign. Might mean people think the Switch is a viable product that’ll stick around. I don’t recall the Wii U having much shovel ware, at least compared to the Wii.

    • Indielink

      Interesting positive spin.

  • Vive

    This shovelware is Wii’s level.

    • Dylan W

      I looked it up and Vegas Party actually was released for the Wii back in the day. Lol.

  • Blake Good

    Let’s just “switch” to shovelware, why don’t we, Nintendo?

  • Addy

    I’m so glad I spend $300 on a underpowered gimmicky game system that only low quality companies support it. This is the Wii all over again.

    • Felipe M.

      Who knows, maybe Chicken Range will become a rare game. lol

      • Addy

        So was Devil’s Third.

        • Felipe M.

          Devil’s Third became rare but then never again. Those who were wishing it would are pretty disappointed now.

    • Vive

      uooo calm down, we spent 300$ for this system for its undeniable convenience and Nintendo’s first party games + third party stuffs (mostly japanese)

      There are dozens of indies already on the system better than these two games, but they might be fun for someone. (i like Shephy for example)

      • Addy

        “undeniable convenience”

        A system that gets too warm after play in handheld more for more than half an hour.

        “Nintendo’s first party games”

        2-3 year old Wii U games during the first 3-4 months of launch

        “third party stuffs (mostly japanese)”

        Matter of opinion, but not much has interested me so far, also no AAA games

        “dozens of indies already on the system”

        Already owned some of them on the Wii U, the ones that stand out anyway.

        I’m not saying the Switch is disappointing, but it’s currently it’s not meeting my expectations at this time until the fourth quarter.

        • Vive

          1) I’ve played in handheld for hours and it’s never too hot for me, and you can always put it on the table using the kickstand.

          2) Zelda is cross-gen, ARMS is a new IP and it is awesome, Splatoon 2 has the same engine of the first one but it’s a new game (vastly improved on everything), so technically Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the only port.

          3) Wii U didn’t have that many great indies, especially at launch.

          I’m not trying to convince you, but Switch has its key selling features and it is doing great for that. It’s not a Wii U 2.

          • Addy

            I could put it on a table, but I usually play handheld games lying down. Breath of the Wild was intended to be only on the Wii U, at launch the Switch version had awful frame rate sometimes worse then the Wii U version. While that was fixed for the most part, you still need a broadband internet connection to download the patch(es), otherwise you have to go to a public place that offers free Wi-Fi, and that can get spotty at times. ARMS, not interested. Splatoon 2, not interested, especially after finding out it has a stricter internet connectivity, I could use a LAN adaptor but it’s another hunk of plastic to plug into, and (I think) the Switch has to be docked, in order to get the more stable connection. Also I’m not very good at the original, so that’s another factor on giving it a pass. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe should have been $40 at most. I already owned the Wii U original, so why bother paying full price for a 3 year old game I already own? I’m not comparing what indie games were launched on both the Wii U and Switch, but moreso the indie games that launched with the Switch, along with the first three months, were already on the Wii U during it’s lifespan. Calling the Switch the Wii U 2 is like calling the Sega Dreamcast the Sega Saturn 2.

          • Vive

            “Calling the Switch the Wii U 2 is like calling the Sega Dreamcast the Sega Saturn 2.”

            It’s the opposite in this case. Switch is set to be a successful system, while here the Wii U is the Dreamcast: that ugly thing that no one bought it.

          • Addy

            The Switch was out only three months ago with 4 million (last I heard) sales. To me, it’s too soon to confirm it’s a success until after a year of release.

  • Felipe M.

    Yay shovelware begins on the Switch.
    : D

    This is strong third party support

  • Someone’s Trash is Someone’s Treasure…

  • Wel, another casual party night games, isn’t bad

  • Dylan W

    Vegas Party actually was released for the Wii back in 2009.

  • DeltaPeng

    It seems like these kind of games would be best as digital download only, to bring down the costs and maximize profits. I’m surprised it’s getting physical, though I’m assuming these games to be more basic
