According to its developer, "A tribute to Miracle Mike who lived for 18 month after his head had been cut off". A game starting that way can offer nothing but tons of humor.
Gameplay is similar to other side-scrolling Canabalt-style games. The headless chicken is losing blood as it runs through the farm. Your goal is to grab the blood bags to refill the blood bottom bar and keep them alive and running. However, there are some obstacles on the way such as flying axes, huge radial arm saws, electric fences... and many others, that you must avoid. If Mike touches them, he'll lose blood faster. Obviously, the goal is clear here: the further you get, the higher the score.
Headless features well-crafted cartoony graphics, set in black & white (remember than Miracle Mike lived in the 40s). Touchscreen response is excellent, as well as the background music. I'm missing just different game modes, achievements and online leaderboards to post highest scores. Besides, a recommended game.
