Reviews

'Great job, the game levels progressed nicely, the tricky bit was gauging how far the chicken would move when an extra few lanes were added to the screen...bastard level 5 was tricky, and at the end I barely got across and missed all the coins because I hit the golden egg...lol...nice addition with the ghost frog/gold bar secret level.'
