The eShop is filled with many good games but also some shovelware that you’d usually see on Steam. One of the advantages of reading through the SwitchArcade roundupi is that you get a good idea of the new releases on the eShop that are worth your time. Back in November, Handy Games’ Chicken Police: Paint it Red ($8.99) hit Nintendo Switch alongside PS4, Xbox, and PC. The buddy cop noir adventure with a striking aesthetic developed by The Wild Gentleman and published by Handy Games just had a surprise release on iOS and Android. Chicken Police: Paint it Red uses a blend of photo manipulation and 3D backgrounds in its adventure inspired by movies from the 40s. Watch the Chicken Police: Paint it Red mobile launch trailer below:
The gameplay in Chicken Police: Paint it Red brings visual novel dialogue to point and click adventure games with some detective gameplay and interrogation mechanics sprinkled along the way. Chicken Police: Paint it Red released for $19.99 on PC and consoles and the mobile version is half or slightly less than half of that price depending on your region and platform (between $8.99 and $9.99). If you’d like to check it out, you can buy Chicken Police: Paint it Red on the App Store for iOS here and Google Play for Android here. It is definitely worth watching the trailer above to see how creative the developers are with the aesthetic here. Have you played Chicken Police: Paint it Red on Nintendo Switch or any other platform before?
