Chicken Scream is a unique game where the player uses their voice to control their character, a chicken, as they navigate various puzzles. The level of volume directly affects how the chicken moves and can make the difference between finishing the puzzle and failing. Talking or singing at a normal volume causes the chicken to walk. Screaming or raising your voice causes the chicken to jump. Staying silent will allow the chicken to stand still. The rate at which you sing/talk also matters, as there are some parts of the puzzles that require you to move faster than others. As the levels increase, other elements of play are added such as touch screen components, making the levels even more complicated.

Coins can be earned as you move through the levels which can then be used to purchase other types of chickens such as a robot chicken, a chef chicken, etc. Two different modes, Classic and Adventure, allow for different ways of moving through the game. 

The sensitivity of the voice recognition can be adjusted if you are playing in a space where “indoor voices” are required but it can also be turned down if you really want to get loud! 

Chicken Scream is a free-to-play game but in-app purchases are available to remove ads and acquire all versions of the chicken character. The player will need to have their microphone enabled in order to play the game.

Chicken Scream  helps kids practice and improve the following skills:


Self Control: Managing our actions, feelings and behaviors.

To successfully complete levels in Chicken Scream, the player needs to have good self-control skills. Because your voice controls every aspect of the chicken’s movement, players need to be hyper-aware of the level and speed of their voice. Players who struggle with regulating their voice to match a situation may find this game helpful to use for practice because there is a direct visual correlation between what you are saying/singing and what the chicken is doing. The first few levels are fairly easy so the player can get used to modifying their voice to meet the situation. 


Flexibility: Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations. 

Each level of Chicken Scream is differs in length and complexity, which means that the player needs to adapt and adjust their voice in order to successfully complete the levels. Players who struggle with flexibility may find themselves needing to repeat levels several times until they feel comfortable enough to adjust their voice as needed. Timing is important in the game as well, meaning players might have to make quick decisions about how to modify their voice based on what the challenge is (ex: a bridge collapsing beneath you means you need to talk/sing faster to get your chicken to move quickly.)
