If you’re unfamiliar with Bomb Chicken, it’s a retro-inspired platformer where players control a hen that’s capable of laying eggs instead of bombs. These can naturally be used to blow up your enemies but these explosives also have a surprising number of other uses as well.
If there’s a switch that needs to be activated in a place your chicken hero is too rotund to slip through, you can just throw an explosive in there to activate it instead. Moreover, if there’s a platform that’s just out of your reach you can create a stack of bombs to help our avian hero get up there, just be sure to hop off before they explode.
Bomb Chicken is available now over on the App Store and Google Play for everyone else. It’s a premium title that costs $4.99 on mobile or of $14.99 on Nintendo Switch.
