Headless is a free game app for Windows 8 and 8.1 devices to play as a headless chicken who has to run the maximum possible distance. The twist of this Windows 8 game is that the chicken being headless is constantly losing blood, and hence, you have to create the highest possible score before the chicken loses all the blood and dies.

In the game, you get several blood pickups, which charge up the health of the chicken temporarily. The health (blood level) of the chicken is shown at the bottom of the screen. The chicken can be controlled by either the arrow buttons, tapping on the screen or via mouse clicks.

Headless is available as a free download from the Windows App Store.

Main features of Headless for Windows 8 and 8.1…

When you install and launch Headless on your Windows 8 or 8.1 device, you will be presented with the main menu of the game, which resembles the below screenshot.

Headless gameplay

As you can see in the above screenshot, you will be able to see a headless chicken running on the track. You will also be able to see the blood vials that you can pickup along the way, which will charge up your constantly draining health. You have to avoid the obstacles by jumping over them or flying over them, which can be done by clicking on the screen or by using the arrow buttons. You can use the up arrow button to jump over the obstacles, and if you tap it frequently enough, you will be able to fly over the obstacles. Use the flying wisely, as you drain a lot of blood while flying. You can pause the game at any point of time by clicking on the pause button at the top left corner of the screen. The pause menu looks like the below screenshot.

Headless is a free game for Windows 8 and 8.1 wherein you will be able to control the headless chicken over the obstacles. The graphics and the background score of the game are pretty interesting, and give a funny feel to the otherwise gory game. The game has a nice feel to it, and being lightweight and free from ads, it makes for a really good app in all senses.

I rate the app a 4 out of 5!

Get Headless.
