First Appearance

Chicken Invaders: The Next Wave

Mother-Hen Ship is the main villain in Chicken Invaders: The Next Wave, and also a recurring boss in the next two games.

It looks mostly the same in every appearance, but it behaves differently. Upon defeat in The Next Wave and Ultimate Omelette, it will explode. In Revenge of the Yolk it blows up with the yolk being splatted on the screen.

Chicken Invaders: The Next Wave

It appears in Chapters 4, 7 and 11.

On the first 2 encounters it manages to escape leaving you with Chickens to fend off, but you crack it's shell. On the 3rd encounter the Hero manages to destroy it and save the Earth.

The fight goes like this:

  • Beginning: Shoots 4 ions, has 10000 HP.
  • First crack: Summons 5 Chickens, has 10000 HP.
  • Second crack: Shoots 8 ions, has 15000 HP.
  • Third crack: Summons 14 Chickens, has 20000 HP.
  • Fourth crack: Shoots 16 ions, has 25000 HP.
  • Fifth crack: Shoots 5 ions in a quick succession directly at you and summons 21 Chickens, has 30000 HP.
  • Sixth crack: It is now able to move around the screen and it has its metal interior exposed, has 35000 HP before finally being destroyed.

Chicken Invaders: Revenge of the Yolk

It attacks with omnidirectional purple ions, which are faster depending on which difficulty you're on. At the beginning of the fight it shoots only one ion, but each time it cracks, it shoots one more. When it cracks for the tenth time, it's destroyed. At first it has 500 HP, but with each crack it gains that plus 1000 HP more. It has 40500 health in total.

Chicken Invaders: Ultimate Omelette

It fires three red ions from the yolk to the left. To defeat it you have to destroy the shell to expose the yolk. When the yolk is exposed, shoot at it to take it down. It has 102 shell parts which have 500 HP each, and can take at most 200 damage with one hit. The yolk itself has 40000 health. If you manage to destroy all of its shell parts which have 500 HP each and then the Yolk, you will get 3 satellites.
