Chickens Can't Fly version 1.2 update fries bugs, comes out tasty

Chickens Can't Fly updated

Last month, the long-awaited Chickens Can’t Fly version 1.1 update added tons of great features like Avatar awards and asynchronous multiplayer. It also rebalanced the game’s difficulty, which we exclusively explored in detail. A few bugs slipped through the crack though. As Robocop villain Dick Jones would say, “The last update made a mistake. Now it’s time to correct that mistake.”

Chickens Can’t Fly version 1.2 release notes:

  • Aquarium Lab unlocked for people that finished the Physics Lab before the 1.1 update was released
  • Everyone can now unlock the ‘Hungry Hungry Chicken’ Achievement faster (this was not working on some phones after 1.1)

Note that you’ll need to earn Gold medals in every single stage, including the Aquarium levels, in order to unlock the ‘Chickens Can’t Fly’ Achievement. In that respect it’s gotten a bit harder than before the version 1.1 update when it could’ve unlocked after finishing the Physics levels. However, it wasn’t exactly easy to get all Golds before the version 1.1 difficulty adjustments, so I’d still say gamers came out ahead in the end.

We’re pleased to see those technical problems gone, returning Chickens Can’t Fly to its proper status as one of the best Xbox Live games on Windows Phone. Check out our review for more details.

Chickens Can’t Fly costs only 99 cents and there is a free trial. Don’t ask the Colonel’s permission; just get it here on the Marketplace.

  • the devs are so awesome for doing all this. thanks so much amused sloth!!
  • as a achievement hunter I don't always go for easy games but massive grinds are a turn off so with this new update I will be purchasing the game after finsihing one of my other titles next week
  • I tried downloading the update this morning, but after telling me it couldn't download it due to being on 3g, I cancelled it. After cancelling, I am unable to launch the game. The 'collection' shortcut is unresponsive, as is the live tile on the home screen. The live tile's reverse shows my medal tally still. When viewing Chickens can't fly in the marketplace, it gives me the option to try or buy, but both fail with a 'low storage space' error, despite there being plenty of space.
    I dont want to lose my progress by uninstalling, is there anything I can do? I cant seem to update it at all having cancelled the original update.
  • Try turning your phone off and on yet?
  • "Don't ask the Colonel's permission; just get it here on the Marketplace." Haha, I love Paul's cheesy jokes.
  • I like to think of them as gravy for the mashed potatoes. :-D
  • that's why the achievement popped up today when I picked up the first piece of corn... Anyways: nice. The Gold Medal achievement is hard, but I'm gonna make it :-)
  • Hear, hear. Its one of the goofiest game on wp7, just love it.
