Astro Chicken is an arcade game, released both in Space Quest III and as stand-alone game. The stand-aline verison was actually the first demo for Space Quest III.

BackgroundEdit

Astro Chicken is a phenomenally popular arcade game developed by ScumSoft (specifically the Two Guys From Andromeda) dramatizing the flight of a chicken. Its success allowed it to be followed up with Ms. Astro Chicken. This arcade game is licensed for use in Monolith Burgers across the Galaxy.

InstructionsEdit

Astro Chicken must land on the Astro Chicken Landing Pad.

He's depending on you to bring him to safety!

Controls
Left Arrow: Move Left
Down Arrow: Stop Left/Right Movement
Right Arrow: Move Right
Up Arrow: Toggle Flapping

Feed: Don't use up all your feed!

Hit the landing pad too fast and you'll bounce back up.

Landing outside the landing pad is fatal.

If you fly too high you'll bounce off the atmosphere and plummet back to the surface.

Secret MessageEdit

The Two Guys from Andromeda embedded a secret message into the ending of Astro Chicken. Roger Wilco decoded it with a Decoder ring from his Monolith Burger Fun Meal.

The Coded MessageEdit

The Decoded MessageEdit

Help us! We are being held captive in ScumSoft on the small moon of Pestulon. An inpenetrable force field surrounds the moon. It must first be deactivated. It's origin is unknown to us. ScumSoft security is armed with Jello Pistols. We're counting on you whoever you are.

Crticism of Decoded MessageEdit

"It's" is used incorrectly. The correct word to use here would be "Its". There are also some problems with the grammar but they may be attributed to the likely hasty nature of the message's insertion into the game.
