Usage

Increasing Score & Food Units

First Appearance

Chicken Invaders (DOS Version)

Food is a game mechanic used in the Chicken Invaders franchise since Chicken Invaders (DX Version). In the DOS version, Food existed, but it wasn't collectible. Food, when collected, will give you a certain amount of points and food units, depending on the variant collected. When you collect 50 food units (100 with one of the Scoring unlockables), or 25 in the first two games, you gain a Missile, and the food counter resets to zero. In games that don't have Missiles, such as The Next Wave Online or Revenge of the Yolk Online, they're instead used as a way to get extra lives. There, you obtain them every 100 food units collected.

Obtaining

Food is dropped most of the time when Chickens are killed. Ordinary Chicks are only able to drop twin legs. Another way to obtain food is from destroying Space Burger Corporation's convoys in Ultimate Omelette.

In certain waves in Cluck of the Dark Side, another type of food appears - popcorn. It can be obtained from cooking Corncobs (Wave 18) or shooting them (Wave 48 and Hen House boss fight).

Types of Food

Drumstick

Most common type of food, appearing in all Chicken Invaders games. Gives 1 food unit and 200 points (in Chicken Invaders (DX Version)), 250 points (in The Next Wave), or 100 points (in the games following it). In Chicken Invaders (DOS Version), it's purely cosmetic, as it can't be collected.

Five variants of it exist, and they don't differ in the amount of points/food units they give. Those variants are:

  • MistletoeLeaf
    Mistletoe Leaf (The Next Wave Christmas)
  • Pumpkin
    Pumpkin (Ultimate Omelette Thanksgiving)

Roast

Introduced in The Next Wave, this food item drops the least often. Gives 10 food units (12 in The Next Wave before version 2.30), which is the highest amount you can get from the food items. In the game it debuted in, it gave the Appetite bonus. In its sequels, it gives 1000 points. It has two variants, and those are:

  • CI3Roast
    Regular (every edition/game it appeared in other than The Next Wave Christmas)
  • Mistletoe
    Mistletoe (The Next Wave Christmas)

Twin Legs

TwinLegs
Semi-common, exclusive to Chicks. Gives 3 food units and 100 points. Introduced in Ultimate Omelette.

Single Chicken Burger

Common, gives 1 food unit and different amount of points depending on the variant collected. Introduced in Revenge of the Yolk. It has four variants:

  • PlainBurger
    Plain - 200 points
  • CheeseBurger
    Cheese - 400 points
  • TomatoCheeseBurger
    Cheese and Tomato - 800 points
  • TLCBurger

Rare, gives 5 food units, 12800 points and the Super Size Me bonus. Introduced in Revenge of the Yolk.

Popcorn

Obtainable from Corncobs. It's unique in that it doesn't bounce around the bottom of the screen, like other food types do. Gives 1 food unit and either 1000 points (in regular waves) or 1 point (in boss waves), regardless of the variant. Introduced in Cluck of the Dark Side.

There are three variants:

  • PopcornTypes

    All of the different variations of popcorn.
