So what is Chicken Charge about you may ask. Well, similar to Pokemon Go, Chicken charge allows you to walk around in the real world which tracks your movements via GPS and you collect some elusive chickens within a virtually-laid area where you have to navigate through obstacles such as 30-foot tall robots, stampeding buffaloes and pianos randomly falling from the sky.
The app was developed using the company’s latest Virtex Framework which lays down the whole virtual world and tracks the user’s movements. The whole framework was built upon the Unity platform, one of the most popular platforms to develop games, another similarity with Pokemon Go is that it was also built on Unity.
