Ms. Astro Chicken: Flight of the Pullet is a video game starring the character Ms. Astro Chicken.
Unlike Astro Chicken you do not need to play this minigame in order to complete the actual game - it was added purely for extra fun.
The machine shorts out and can't be played anymore after five games.
Left-click to move, right click to drop an egg (the game can also be controlled by the arrow keys on the keyboard, although that method can be a bit uncomfortable). Hitting a dog gives you 3 points, hitting a farmer gives 5 (if I recall correctly). Flying through a fence gives you protection against the flying fox-thingies and give you extra points when they hit you, but the "armour" will decay after a few hits. Flying through cornfields will replenish your egg supplies.
Armourless mid-air collisions, shotgun shots, dogbites and windmill splatters are recommended to be avoided, on the grounds of not losing lives and ending the game prematurely.
As many players don't know, the game is actually not infinite and ends after the player reaches over 250 points. After that the remaining number of eggs is multiplied by five and added to the score as a bonus. A good strategy is to try not to hit anyone with the eggs if you're low on them and nearing 250 points. Instead, try to "waste" the eggs by dropping them on the ground and wait for a cornfield (they only tend to appear when you're running out of eggs). Then, having built up a large supply, do the final hit to go over 250 points and let the bonus points roll in.
