Feature Highlights:

Players control Shuriken Chicken using three simple gestures anywhere on the screen: swipe up to jump, swipe down to slide, and tap to throw shurikens.

Gameplay is smooth and responsive, and the stocky chicken never stops moving his feet until he loses all his lives. The many sizes and colors of felt in different layers create a randomly textured world that is both beautiful and unique. Truly as much a hand-made, labor of love as an iOS game can be, Shuriken Chicken contains endless, witty, visual surprises and challenging, fast-paced gameplay.
