    OMG Chicken Invaders!!!! I remember this game! Back in middle school, I used to have Chicken Invaders on my flash drive. One day we got so much snow that literally every school district closed but ours, but two thirds the class didn’t show up anyways. So without enough people to learn anything, we just did whatever, and I started playing Chicken Invaders on one of the classroom computers. Soon I had the entire class taking turns playing 2-player!!! Good times…..

    @Grant Nowaways, my school will ban you from computers if you play games. My friend almost got an after school detention because he was playing Linerider. Our teacher barely gave us any work and even said “Cool” about the game. Stupid IT. Of course, these are the same people that make our school have IE and not Chrome or Firefox. (Not saying IT in general are stupid — I think it’s a sweet job — but our school’s aren’t the greatest.)

    It is worth mentioning this game is also 2-player co-op.
