Not since the Zelda series of games has so much mirth been derived from the humble chicken. It must be realized that the chicken is a tremendously funny creature. It is a bird, but can only fly distances of a few yards. Apart from its beak, the chicken is almost entirely edible from head to toe.You can't eat the feathers, but you can tickle people with them. Quite how the chicken ever survived in the wild is a bit of a mystery. Not as much of a mystery as the antics going on in Hermy Hopperhead though.

You play the part of Hermy, a hapless chicken herder, as he herds his harem of hens through ancient Japan. Admittedly the plot fails to ignite sparks of logic, or enthusiasm, but you can't fault it for originality.The action gets more and more bonkers as you progress through the game, but suffice to say that you won't be learning anything useful while playing.

The action relies heavily on the use of eggs and their as yet unhatched contents. You can hatch an egg using stars that are dotted around on the various levels.The more stars you collect, the more eggs you'll be able to hatch. Each different colored egg contains a different kind of bird. Some can fly, some can shoot, all of them, however are there to help. You must pick and choose which fowl you want the most, because Hermy can only have three chickens, at any time, following him.

Gameplay is straightforward enough and the real challenge comes with how to utilize your poultry in the most clever manner.These magic leghorns can squish themselves down for you to use as stepping stones; collect stars for you and attack enemies. As in Sonic, as long as you are in the possession of stars, you will not die. When you get hit, your current holdings will disappear, leaving you vulnerable. Otherwise, don't fret. Don't take these stars for granted, though, because you need 100 of them to hatch your eggs and 400 of them to gain an extra Hermy.

Apart from this, the pics are self-explanatory. Hermy Hopperhead features some pretty graphics, wacky critters and a fair amount of hijinx. Someone as adorable as this could easily find himself employed as a mascot, if he played his cards right. Either way, this is one platform game that you shouldn't miss.

Game Reviews

Hermie Hopperhead is a Mario-esque action platform game. The main character is a clown of sorts who can collect eggs and use them as tools. The whole game has a very cartoony look to it, with better effects as the levels progress.

The gameplay is exactly like that found in a Mario game. You can jump on enemies and find hidden areas by dropping down into garbage cans (like Mario pipes). This game has lots of secrets.
