Catch Eggs and Defend Your Chickens in Chicken Pou for iOS

Complex and in-depth games can be a great way to escape the real world for a little bit, but sometimes you’re looking for a simple game that’s straightforward and fun to play. Chicken Pou is a hectic and fast-paced game for iPhone and iPad that is not only fun to play, but is also unique.

The goal of Chicken Pou is to help Grandma Frieda gather eggs for the evening’s meal. This sounds easy enough, but in order to do this, she must catch the falling eggs in her frying pan.

To move Grandma Frieda around the screen, players must tap the left and right arrow buttons. I really like the fact that controls are simple and easy to understand. This is definitely a game you can pick up and play instantly, but it takes awhile to perfect your egg catching tactics.

As if catching falling eggs wasn’t hard enough, Chicken Pou includes pesky foxes and martens that Grandma Frieda must fend off using a stick. If she’s unsuccessful, the sneaky critter will capture one of her chickens.

Also, chickens occasionally drop a pou, which is a bad egg that will remove seven eggs from Grandma Frieda’s pan. A pou is a significantly smaller egg, so they’re fairly easy to distinguish from regular eggs.

The game ends when there are no chickens left or Grandma Frieda runs out of eggs in her pan. For every 20-40 eggs caught, one chicken is added to the roost.

Chicken Pou is very fun to play, but what if you want something that switches things up a bit? The game includes a Bloodpatch theme, which changes Grandma Frieda into a punk rock grannie who is armed with a sword instead of a stick.

As you can imagine, things get gruesome when she defends her chickens from foxes and martens. Bloodpatch mode can be toggled on and off from the main menu, and it’s initially locked with a passcode so children (hopefully) can’t unlock it.

Personally I got a kick out of Bloodpatch mode, as there’s something darkly humorous about a punk rock grandma catching eggs and fending off animals with a sword. Naturally this mode isn’t for young children, but I’m sure adults will get a good laugh out of it.

Overall, Chicken Pou is a hysterically fun and unique game that’s very basic. There’s no fluff, upgrades, or in-app purchases to worry about. Plus, it’s universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. If you’re looking for an entertaining and optionally gruesome new game to try, Chicken Pou is certainly worth a look.

Chicken Pou requires iOS 7.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus.
