What came first, the egg, or the chicken games? We’re not sure either but we’ve got some opinions on which the best Switch and mobile games are that feature chickens and let you play as or with them. Now… let’s get cracking.
If you’re looking for some freebies in other games, check out all the Your Bizarre Adventure codes and Ants Simulator codes that are currently active, and snap up the rewards from Pokémon Unite codes and Street Fighter Duel codes, too. Or, if you’re an animal lover, see our picks for the best dog Pokémon, cat Pokémon, and bunny Pokémon.
Look at all those chickens – in the best chicken games you can play.
Bomb Chicken – Switch and mobile
Look at that adorable little round chicken. It would be funny if it started laying bombs instead of eggs, right? Well, that’s exactly what it does. Bomb Chicken features a chicken changed by a freak accident, that now uses its powers to blast through platformer levels, use stacks of bombs to reach higher areas (because chickens can’t fly), and discover the dark secrets behind BFC – Blue Fried Chicken – the fast food conglomerate.
Chicken Journey – coming to Switch this year!
If you don’t want to lay bombs, you can become a different, small, round chicken and embark on the adventure of a lifetime. There’s puzzles plenty to solve in Chicken Journey, along with foresty friends to meet and quests to fulfil. There’s no combat involved, so you can play without worrying about turning into chicken strips.
Stardew Valley – Switch and mobile
Perhaps you don’t want to be a chicken? Then we recommend a simple farming life in Stardew Valley, where the chickens are plentiful and the mayonnaise machines keep on turning. Your farm is your oyster, and you can build up the biggest egg-farming empire Pelican Town has ever seen if you want. Don’t neglect the Void chickens, though – the mayonnaise may look nasty but it sells for a good price!
Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Switch
The beauty of Animal Crossing is that you can kind of play how you want, and in this case, you can create an island inhabited solely by chickens (aside from yourself and the friendly NPCs). There are nine different chicken villagers to invite to your island, and with Bunny Day’s events, plenty of egg-themed furniture too for that egg-stra chickeny feel.
Minecraft – Switch and mobile
Like Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing, Minecraft is what you make it. And we want to make it into a gigantic chicken farm. Once you grab some seeds and a couple of chickens, you’re off to a great start. You could even rope in some villagers to help and make a whole chicken-themed metropolis!
Yakuza 0 – via Xbox cloud streaming – mobile
Alright, alright, this is here on a technicality but it still counts. During the course of Yakuza 0, Kiryu wins a chicken from a bowling alley. The woman at the counter gets a shock when he says he’ll take the chicken home – and so he names it Nugget. Nugget joins your team as a manager for Kamurocho Real Estate Royale.
Chicken Police – Paint it Red! – Switch and mobile
Chicken Police features point-and-click gameplay in a noir setting, with humanoid animals Sonny Featherland and Marty MacChicken starring in a buddy-cop adventure. This pick for our chicken games list is definitely a unique title and comes as a recommendation due to its humour, story, and originality.
