Shuriken baddies that get in your way! Jump and slide to avoid obstacles and get Shuriken Chicken as far as you can with this fun title from Games for Gummie.


Feature Highlights:
* Unique art style, all graphics were hand cut from felt and photographed
* Run through 3 different quirky, handcrafted levels
* Fun, action packed, and highly addictive gameplay
* Simple gesture based controls: swipe up to jump, swipe down to slide, tap to throw a shuriken
* Collect sweet shuriken power-ups
* Over 30 Game Center Achievements
* Game Center leaderboards: compete with friends and the world to see who can run the furthest distance


Players control Shuriken Chicken using three simple gestures anywhere on the screen: swipe up to jump, swipe down to slide, and tap to throw shurikens.

Gameplay is smooth and responsive, and the stocky chicken never stops moving his feet until he loses all his lives. The many sizes and colors of felt in different layers create a randomly textured world that is both beautiful and unique. Truly as much a hand-made, labor of love as an iOS game can be, Shuriken Chicken contains endless, witty, visual surprises and challenging, fast-paced gameplay.

Downloaded your game. It's good fun. The fact that your graphics are cut from felt is very interesting.
