It’s like if Pacman and Bomberman just went out to different bars one eventful night. They both went with their respective friends, acted belligerent and were kicked out of the bar. Angry at their fun cut short, each party walked home in a drunken stupor. Somewhere along the way, both Packman and Bomberman met up drunkenly unable to stand. They talk about nothing and everything as a night full of powering down Long Islands and shots are wont. One goes to the other’s apartment and, well, things went down. From that union, the game Chomp, Chomp, Chomp came forth.
Pig and Bullet at first glance looks like a bunch of craziness. You have a pig and bullets. That’s it. One lone pig and a hail storm of bullets. It would be considered a bullet hell, a game in which you fly around avoiding bullets and hitting huge bosses in a small craft with a one pixel hit box, but the bullets don’t move in huge complicated patterns. In fact, all you get is a shower of bullets raining down at you in a slow fall. The bullets are never ending.
OK, OK, OK. I have never shied away from weirdness and don’t plan on it. I’ve seen games full of rainbows, kittens, weird monsters and stranger premises. I’ve played many games that clearly were intended for parody. And then you get Shooting Chicken: Brutal Suckers. I mean the title alone is just weird. You are told that you are indeed shooting chickens. They apparently are brutal, according to the title.
Whether the title is saying that the chickens are a bunch of brutal suckers or are capable of brutal sucking, one is not sure. The company that made this, Kohei Gallery, clearly enjoys making games with odd settings. A bit of "Engrish" is found in some of the text, but generally the story text to an English speaker is rather good.
No, that name is not a typo. It is in fact named ‘I MAED A GAM3 W1TH Z0MB1ES!!!1.’ It is in fact a game on Xbox LIVE. You are in some awesome chamber where it is just you and them. They are brainless, flesh-eating things that want your brains. You stand your ground with a barrage of weapons that you can collect as you circle around shooting anything that comes within a foot of you.
