Shikun is a simple but addictive action game that sports bright anime-style graphics, fun arcade-ish gameplay, and enough surprises for multiple replays. Your goal: collect chickens either with a net or baiting them with seeds. Collect the required number of chickens and throw them into the pen within the time limit to move on to the next level – and eventually a new world. There are six worlds in the game, each with five levels. Each world sports its own theme, obstacle set, and even enemies. You have thirteen characters with varying stats to choose from, multiple game modes, difficulty levels, bonus items, and even a mini-game and a secret game.

Although the game looks good and plays well, there are some glitches that mar the overall enjoyment. For example, there are sometimes far too many power-ups in the scene making their constant flashing annoying. Also, I find the game very difficult even on Easy mode, and the evil teleport gates in some levels don't make things any easier. Still, excellent play value, unique premise, and great graphics make Shikun a well-deserved Top Dog. It also runs in Windows, which makes it one of those ideal time-wasters you can play and quickly ALT+TAB out of during work ;) Two thumbs up!
