Introduction

Chickens Can't Fly is a fun-filled game that has you controlling a laboratory chicken through many trials, dodging obstacles, collecting corn, picking up power-ups and power-downs, all-the-while falling rapidly down narrow, experimental tunnels. It plays like few other games in the Windows Phone Xbox Live Marketplace. The game used to be fairly challenging, but after the recent patch is much less frustrating and should provide the average gamer only a little challenge on the way to the 200! For a more in-depth review of the game from WPCentral (before the "easy" update), click HERE. Currently the game is listed at $0.99 in the marketplace.

Step 1: Get gold on all experiments
Play through all the levels starting from the beginning. Try as get as many gold medals as you can. It is best to keep repeatedly trying each level to get gold. If a level proves too challenging, move on and come back later.

Step 2: Survival Mode
Now that you are more familiar with the game and all levels of this mode are unlocked, complete the achievements related to survival mode.

Step 3: Online achievement
Complete the one and only simple online achievement for this game. It only requires you to attempt the Global Weekly Challenge.

Step 4: Mop-up and Grind
Complete any achievements you may have missed while getting all the gold medals. You will most likely need to grind the 1 million corn achievement and possibly a few others as well, depending on how you play.

Conclusion
All in all, Chickens Can't Fly is a fairly easy game to complete, even with the grinding, especially after the latest patch. For the very low price of just $0.99, can you really pass up what many would consider a "Must Have" game for Windows Phone?


GUIDE

GOLD MEDAL ACHIEVEMENTS (8 for 90 )

The following 8 achievements are obtained on your trek to getting gold on all the levels.


Chicken is ready for science! - 5
Complete all Hatchery experiments.

Just complete all 7 levels of Hatchery, the tutorial laboratory. You do not need to get gold medals...just complete them (earn bronze medals).

Chicken avoided the butcher! - 10
Get at least a bronze medal in all the Butchery experiments.

See "Chicken likes quantum physics!"

Chicken can avoid ghosts! - 10
Get at least a bronze medal in all the Cemetery experiments.

See "Chicken likes quantum physics!"

Chicken can outrun bombs! - 10
Get at least a bronze medal in all the Military experiments.

See "Chickens like quantum physics!"

Chickens like quantum physics! - 10
Get at least a bronze medal in all the Physics experiments.

These achievements are obtained just by completing each experiment of each laboratory. To complete a level, you must obtain the bronze medal. Bronze medal requirements are usually specific to each level and require you to complete a certain task (i.e. collect X amount of Y, be X for Y seconds, etc.). However, sometimes the only requirement is to finish the level alive.

Chicken deserves gold! - 5
Obtain a gold medal in one of the experiments.

See "Chickens Can't Fly!"

Chicken is golden! - 15
Get Gold for all experiments in a non-tutorial laboratory.

Get gold medals on all the experiments of any laboratory, except the tutorial laboratory, the Hatchery.
See "Chickens Can't Fly!" for tips.

Chickens Can't Fly! - 25
Get Gold in ALL experiments.

Getting a gold medal in an experiment not only requires you complete the "bronze medal objective," but also obtain a certain score as well. The best advice is to try and obtain the largest multiplier possible and pick up corn! I like to complete the bronze objective early in the level, then focus on getting my score up by collecting corn. You must gold all levels of all laboratories in the game, except obviously for the PDLC ones.

One technique I found that made this game easy was to try and collect magnets. When you use a magnet, all the corn you pass is collected automatically. While the magnet is active, focus on avoiding obstacles, moving fast, and most importantly racking up power-downs to increase your multiplier. If you do not have any magnet, I recommend going slow and try to find a magnet. This is basically what I did for all levels (that actually have magnets, some do not) and had little trouble getting gold on all levels.

A tip for the Aquarium experiments: The developers seems to have made these new levels noticeably harder than the rest of the game after they patched it. Many of the levels I found impossible to complete unless you realize the importance of one key collectible: the pearl! Many levels you just need really to ignore the corn and look for power-downs and try to pick up a pearl when you have a good multiplier. The base value of a pearl is 1000, so you can see how they really help you rack up score fast, compared to trying to collect corn. Once I realized this, these levels became easy, but involved some luck to get enough pearls to spawn in the level.

SURVIVAL MODE ACHIEVEMENTS (3 for 30 )

The following 3 achievements are obtainable in Survival Mode.


Chicken is resilent! - 15
Survive 20 checkpoints in Survival mode.

Play Survival mode and focus only on surviving. Go slow and do not worry about score, power-ups, or corn. This is not too difficult if going slow. You get plenty of lives. Which laboratory is the best? I find that the Military one is easiest, but it may just be personal preference. The obstacles seem easier to deal with and the power-downs are less devastating. This achievement can be gotten along with "Chicken is stronger than a cat!" as you should employ the same strategy for both. This achievement is also obtainable in a Survivor Global Weekly Challenge.

Chicken is stronger than a cat! - 5
Have over 9 lives in Survival mode.

Play Survival mode and focus only on surviving. Go very slow and just try not to die. You get another life each checkpoint you pass. The achievement unlocks instantly when you pass the checkpoint and you lives reach 9. This achievement should be attempted at the same time as "Chicken is resilient!" as the same strategy applies to both. This achievement is NOT obtainable in a Survivor Global Weekly Challenge.


Chicken is confident - 10
Pass 3 checkpoints without flapping the wings in Survival mode.

This is easiest to attempt at the beginning of Survival mode. The further you go, the more that obstacles are in the level. Just move side-to-side, avoiding obstacles until you pass three complete checkpoints. Remember, you can use the walls, but your finger must not make contact with the screen. This causes your chicken to flap its wings and slow down. This achievement is also obtainable in a Survivor Global Weekly Challenge.


ONLINE ACHIEVEMENT (1 for 5 )

The following 1 achievement is the only achievement that requires an online connection to obtain.


Chicken is competitive! - 5
Participate in the Global Weekly Challenge.

Each week there is a new Global Weekly Challenge to compete against other players in. Effectively it is just a weekly leaderboard for a defined level. The achievement only requires you to participate in the challenge, not complete it. It should pop as soon as you load up the level. To find the weekly challenge, scroll down in the level select area to the Multiplayer Box. In the Multiplayer Menu, select Weekly Challenge.

MISCELLANEOUS ACHIEVEMENTS (8 for 75 )

The following 8 achievement are related to completing specific tasks or requirements and can be done in ANY game mode.


Chicken knows magnetism - 10
Get 10000 points with a corn magnet.

You must earn a total score of 10000 points during the duration of one magnet power-up. This is obtained by collecting corn when you have a huge multiplier, as the magnets only last 10 seconds or so. Using the technique I mentioned in "Chickens Can't Fly" to get gold medals on each level, this should come naturally.

Once you deploy a magnet, focus only on avoiding obstacles and collecting power-downs (to up your multiplier). Alternatively, if you earn a large multiplier (200+), you could then proceed to use a magnet and hope for the best.

This is probably easiest in the last two laboratories, Military or Physics as they contain ample power-downs. I would not attempt this in Survival Mode, as there is not that many power-downs, though it could potentially be possible.

Chicken hates walls - 10
Pass 5 checkpoint without touching a wall.

This is easiest in the early part of Survival Mode when there is few obstacles. Just go very slow, sticking to the middle when possible. If an obstacle is blocking middle, cautiously pick a side to go down and go very slow to avoid touching the wall. Obtaining this in a normal level would not only be hard, but likely impossible as most stages do not even have 5 checkpoints.

Chicken likes unhealthy food - 10
Eat 5 sausages without dying.

This must be done in a Butchery level or Butchery Survival Mode. Sausages are a power-down that make your chicken increase in size. Like most of the achievements, just go slow and collect 5 sausages without dying. At this point, you chicken will get too large and you will not fit past many of the obstacles, especially the ones in the middle. Luckily you will have already earned your achievement!

Chicken likes multiplication - 5
Obtain a score multiplier of over 100.

You will almost certainly obtain this when going for golds in all levels. However, if you do not play a level in one of the last two laboratories, Military or Physics, as these have ample power-downs. Only focus on avoiding obstacles and collecting power-downs. Go as slow as you need to, but fast enough to be able to collect enough power-downs. The multipliers stack...so two sausage power-downs, which individually give a x2 multiplier, would give you a x4 multiplier.

Chicken can activate power-ups - 5
Use 5 different delayed power-ups.

This achievement is hard to miss during you completion of the game. Delayed power-ups are the ones you collect, but must push the their button along the right edge of the screen to activate. There are 8 or so delayed power-ups in the game, but you do not have access to the all until the middle to end stages of the game...just be patient, it will come.

Chicken is an expert - 10
Get 300.000 score in a single game.

This achievement is most likely hard to get in a regular level and is likely easier to get in Survival Mode. However, it would be quicker in a regular level if you did have the skill to do it that way. 300,000 score must be obtained in one level in one sitting (no exiting and resuming). The achievement unlocks the instant 300,000 score is surpassed.

Just go slow in Survival Mode, focusing on collecting corn as well as surviving. Obviously collecting power-downs would increase you multiplier and potentially make obtaining this achievement quicker, but they make it more difficult and you may die more frequently. A good balance is best.

Some detailed tips/advice from Avenged Remains can be found HERE.

Chicken likes to break stuff - 10
Eliminate 1000 obstacles using the Butcher Shield, Holy Cross, Nuke or EMP.

This achievement is cumulative across all games and modes. You will most likely not have completed this after getting all gold medals. I only had around 250 after getting all golds, but I barely ever used any of the delayed power-ups except the magnet.

To boost this, I would recommend Military Level 6. This levels objective is to introduce you to the nuke, and requires you blow up 30 objects just to complete the bronze requirement. You can easily earn 40 to 60 objects destroyed per attempt of the level. Make sure to use up all your lives and you should have this achievement in less than 30 minutes.

Hungry, hungry Chicken! - 15
Gather 1.000.000 total corn.

This achievement is cumulative across all games and modes. Each piece of corn you collect counts as 10 towards the achievement (if you have v1.2 patch), so effectively you only need to collect 100,000 corn to unlock this. This should only require minor grinding (a couple of hours or less) after you gold all the levels. Remember, you can check your progress in the achievement screen.

Occasionally, as was the case in June 2012, the corn can be boosted in a Weekly Challenge that has very few obstacles. In this case, you can leave your phone running continuously in the challenge and rack up the corn while sleeping or doing anything else. Each week you can try the challenge to see if you can rack up points without touching your phone.


GUIDE UPDATES:

7/9/12
- Guide completed.
7/11/12 - "Chicken is stronger than a cat" updated to mention not obtaining in Weekly Challenges. Thanks to xMidget_Furyx for this tip.

9/7/12 - Added a link to a thread by Avenged Remains containing some tips to earning "Chicken is an expert."
10/5/12 - Added a link to the WPCentral review to the Roadmap.

.
Chicken is stronger than cat is only attainable in the survival mode not the weekly challenge.I had well over 300 lives and didn't unlock it. However to do the others in the weekly challenge it will be hard to do unless they bring back the corn farming level they had for the week after the last patch and DLC.

Also they made getting the million corn easier for 1 week with tht weekly challenge. Not sure if they plan on brining that level back. I don't think they intended to change the requirement for the achievement. Just make it easier.

Thanks for the time, updated info about the particular survival mode achievements you mentioned.

Also, for the 1 million corn achievement, you are partially correct. They did not necessarily change the requirement, per say, but actually made each piece of corn you collect count as 10 instead of 1 towards the achievement, effectively making the amount of corn you need to collect to earn the achievement only 100,000. Source --> WPCentral

It is now much easier and cant be obtained in 1/10th the time it could before and you should be able to get get most of the 100,000 I presume just by playing through the game.

That would make sense as to why I had to score 2 million points for the Hungry Hungry Chicken to unlock.

Great guide by the way. So far I'm on the last military experiement and the two that have given me trouble are the timed levels and the 1 life levels.

Hmm. Do you think the 3/10 difficulty is a little off? Have not gotten much feedback on this. I had very little trouble after the patch, save the aquarium levels. What do you think?

Well I would say it's fair. I finished the last two on military and finished physics today in my shift at work. I even got all gold (no achievement )
However like you I only played this after the patch.
But the guide is a fair assesment of the game. Now to try and finish the aquarium.

Nice work. Aquarium is noticeably harder, but not too bad for the most part. maybe this game is a 4/10. But technically you shouldnt have to do aquarium to get the all golds achievement. so it is hard to say.

Just finished aquarium. Yes that is harder a few hard ones some I did on the first shot but some real difficult ones. But like you said you technically don't have to do aquarium so 3/10 is fair with aquarium 4/10. Either way I'm @ 200/200

Anyone have any good strategies to get 300,000 score in one game? It was cake during that easy weekly challenge a while back, but it much more difficult doing it legit...

UPDATE (8/8/12): I upped the achievement difficulty from 3 to 4, since a few of the achievements are a bit of a challenge without an easy global challenge to complete them it. Can anyone that completed the game post-patch, that did not use a global challenge trick, comment on the difficulty?

I posted some tips in the other thread if you want to have a look a see what you think. Feel free to use it in the guide if you think it's good enough .

As for the difficulty, I'd say 4 is reasonable. Some levels do depend on luck, but after a few times I think it's easy enough to get there. Didn't take me too long to get all but the 300k achievement, and the only reason for that was I couldn't be bothered to play the same level for so long. I waited for a good weekly challenge but got tired of that and so just gave it a go.

Thanks for the guide too btw, helped me along with most of the achievements .

Cheers, I will have a look through your tips and add what people think works best. How much boosting of corn did you have to do once you finished all other achievements? And how long did the boosting take?

Not much at all really. By the time I did all of the experiment and survival achievements I was pretty close to 1 million corn.

I actually went for the 1000 obstacles before the corn and got the corn achievement before it. I'd say it took me around half an hour to get them both though, although that may need adjusting depending on if I did really well in the experiments compared to others, or if it took me more tries and that's why I collected more corn.

I felt like I was pretty decent at the game, but I did hear they'd made it easier .

A couple of quick questions:
I'm missing 2 cheevies on this game now - the 5 levels without touching the wall & 300,000 in one game - for the 5 levels, I've done about 10, but always died on the 4th level, so I'm wondering if you have to do it in 1 life - I've only played since the update, so I had to finish Aquarium all gold to get that cheevie... and is Military definitely the best level style to get the 300,000 on? I kind of like the "Finger of Death" on Aquarium...

Thanks

Oh yes I am fairly certain you also much not die for the wall touching achievement as well. I know I didnt die when I got it.

For the Military level, sorry I cant comment. I got that one on a global challenge. I can only base the guide off what others have contributed (which is only a few people) and that military has been the best it seems. If you can manage good reasoning for your level please share. Thanks.

Mr. Fill:

Aquarium was the one I used for getting my 300K score. Pearls give 1K score when you catch them. If you have a multiplier, that affects the score. So, if you get 2 shrimp in a row, that's 4K. Some of the downgrades are annoying, like bubble corn, but corn won't be your major source of points. Instead, pearls and that Finger will be your key scoring opportunities. You'll probably hit a lot of clams with the Finger, but since you can't float with that powerup, it's generally for the best.

Make sure to be careful, and to save up a good chunk of lives. If you find a section that is 'sweet', in that you have downgrade multipliers combined with a lot of nearby pearls, it might be worthwhile to sacrifice a few lives just to keep reaping the bonus there. Something like 15K-20K from pearls and multipliers. HOWEVER, always keep some lives in reserve, just in case another section gives you more trouble. Don't want to run out of lives just short of your goal.

As far as the No-Wall achievement, it might be consecutive without deaths, but not 100% sure. I had a hard time with this one; the twists and turns showed off too much of the top and NOT the bottom, thus becoming blind spots when you have to try and avoid a buzz saw or some other dangerous implement. I'm not certain which lab would be best to try this one, though I went with the first one, if I recall.
