PlayStation Vita owners worrying about your lack of decent games for your console, never fear! Originally released on the PlayStation Network back in 2011, Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken by Ratloop Asia rapidly became one of my favourite game releases of 2011.
Thank the Vita Gods then that a port of the game comes out today for the Vita, because it really needed games like this. Frankly, every console needs a game where you play as a chicken shooting up an evil regime of albatross. And every console deserves to have a soundtrack by the amazing New World Revolution too, to be honest.
The Vita version has been souped up a bit from the PS3 version, meaning tilting screens, a new final boss and slightly tweaked levels, a secondary difficulty setting and an online co-op mode are now slammed into this rather cheap $9.99 title.
Owners of the PlayStation 3 version should get two free additional co-op characters – Sniper Budgie and Agent H – as well as a 20% off discount for the Vita release. I highly recommend you go and buy it from the PlayStation Network, because the Vita is severely lacking attractive games and there’s no reason to miss a decent game when it’s not going to set you back a hefty price, is there?
