Fowl Words 2: Trouble at the Chicken Ranch! Unlike its predecessor, this word game is mostly about speed (fast typing) instead of quick thinking, though there are exceptions.

In each round you have letter-eggs combined to words, which moving from the right to the (open) left side, parallel in different rows. Now you have to simply type the word from those eggs to save them. Do this with as many words as possible to complete the round and to prevent the eggs from falling down and smash.

Starting with round one, you only have to save 6 short egg-words and the eggs moving slowly. But with increased round number, the speed increases, the length of the words and the number of words needed too. And in addition, the eggs in the different rows start to have different speeds.

The game is over when you lose 33 eggs by falling down at the left side.

And finally, there are bonus rounds, where smashed eggs don't count against you, but you must first unscramble the letters before typing the word. So here you must both think and write fast! [source:mobygames]
