Chicken ROPS Run is a fun and challenging arcade-style game with high-quality jet-pack-like game play that emphasizes the value of the tractor Rollover Protective Structure (ROPS) in saving farmers from critical injuries, and even loss of life.

The app features a running and flying chicken that is released by a farmer to gather coins to assist in buying a ROPS for the farm’s tractor. The chicken moves through four levels, with the goal of collecting coins while avoiding such hazards as foxes, cats, dogs, hawks, owls, and other obstacles. The player can learn to maneuver the chicken around the obstacles and eventually progress through all levels.The game restarts each time the chicken collides with any of five different living hazards or two obstacles, and the scoring for the highest level is reset but added to the player's grand total.

All proceeds from purchase of the app are going to farmers through rebates on the purchase of ROPS for their tractors.
