Showing up as free on NZ App Store, maybe it will be free in US Store later.

yeah, it's weird... the game description says it's free, but the price hasn't gone down... =oP


Hope it's still free in the morning.

Drop The Chicken... I didn't know that Angry Birds and Cut The Rope got married and had a kid.

The game is really great (thanks) but it keeps crashing (to homescreen) on my iPad 2 (64GB/3G, never jailbroken, latest iOS, rebooted) approx. every five attempts after finishing (dropping). Stars are saved anyway. It seems the more complicated the level the easier it crashes.

Put aside hoping for an update…

This game desperately wants to be the new "Cut The Rope", to the extent of copying its level intro animation, layout and feel. Not a knock against the game itself, which is a decent puzzler, but its mimicking is pushed so far that it's simply impossible to ignore.

There's a lot of trial and error involved in solving the levels, at least as much as its original inspiration. For some reason, it doesn't feel as dynamic. In CTR you often have to move accessories synchronously to guide your candy, but here all you seem to be able to do is watch the chicken fall, hope for the best and study its velocity so as to adjust objects for your next attempt. In this way it reminds me of The Incredible Machine.

The artwork and animation isn't as smooth-looking as CTR either. It lacks its charm and fluidity.

I've definitely noticed the instability myself. It hasn't crashed as often here (1st gen iPad) but after the second incident I tried not to do anything too crazy.

yeah i get them crashes on my device, too.

great game from what i witness. it could benefit from a little bit of weight loss, though - 70 megs, that's.. quite a lot.
