Nintendo sponsors new online Flash game


Developed by extra toxic and sponsored by Nintendo, Chick Chick Boom is a Worms-like Flash game that pits two teams of baby chickens against each other. Each side has a number of offensive and defensive moves to unleash by tracing their shape at the bottom of the screen. Launch bombs, poisonous mushrooms, and lightning bolts at your opponent, then use defensive moves such as a lightning rod or medicine to keep your own team safe. The goal is to stay alive as long as you can to unlock bonus downloads from the main menu. Chick Chick Boom shows a lot of polish and, with its emphasis on drawing, feels like it would fit the DS quite well.

This isn't the first time Nintendo has footed the bill for a Flash game. A great-looking platformer Mission in Snowdriftland was released late last year, though it mysteriously vanished in mid-January.
