|"Lost progress" bug in recent Android updates to Chicken Invaders 3 & 4||2016-07-08|
There is a bug in the Chicken Invaders 3 (v1.19) and Chicken Invaders 4 (v1.15) updates for Android we released last week which will prevent your progress from being upgraded correctly (that is, your progress will be reset to zero). We have now released updates to correct this issue.
The new updates are Chicken Invaders 3 v1.20 and Chicken Invaders 4 v1.16. You can check which version you have by selecting Options -> Credits at the game's main menu.
Please allow a few hours for these updates to propagate around the world and then make sure you apply them as soon as possible, because any progress you make with the old v1.19 and v1.15 will be ignored.
This issue only affects Android. Windows, Mac, Linux are unaffected.
|Sweeping update for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android||2016-06-23|
We have recently released a sweeping update to all of our games on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android. The most important visible differences are the option to switch between classic (chiptune) and remastered (orchestral) music for Chicken Invaders 2, spaceship colorization in multiplayer games for Chicken Invaders 4, and the addition of Dutch and Portuguese translations for Chicken Invaders 5. The update breaks network compatibility for Chicken Invaders 3 & 4, so you'll need it to play multiplayer games. There is additionally a multitude of small technical fixes that nobody will ever care about so we won't even mention them!

|Chicken Invaders 1 slowness issue under Windows 8+||2015-12-10|
As you might already know, Chicken Invaders 1 (and Island Wars 1) run very slowly under Windows 8, 8.1 and 10. This is because starting with Windows 8, the DirectDraw portion of DirectX 7.0 is software emulated, meaning that it's very slow. This is a limitation of Windows and there's nothing that the game itself can do to fix it.
Nevertheless, Zerosan has reported to us that you can use the dgVoodoo2 DirectX wrapper to make the game work correctly under Windows 8+, so you might want to give it a shot. Note that InterAction studios is not affiliated with the maker of dgVoodoo2 and no technical support can be provided. Your mileage may vary.
|Halloween Edition "wave 27" crash||2015-10-05|
There is a bug that will cause the Halloween Edition of Chicken Invaders 5 to crash on wave 27. It only affects SD versions on Android and iOS. We have already released a fix for Android (available now) and iOS (available after Apple approves it in a few days). Until this happens, we have removed the game from the iOS store to avoid confusion. Sorry about the mix-up!
