What can we expect from Rocketbirds 2: Evolution?

As the trailer says, the “most interesting chicken in the world” is back for Rocketbirds 2: Evolution. Hardboiled Chicken becomes entangled in a new mysterious and sinister plot from the penguins. The game has two parts. “Part 1: The Cockup” features the original single player story mode. “Part 2: The Rescue”, is the multiplayer mode featuring the pint sized budgie commandos, where you rescue and recruit the hostages from behind penguin lines. While the order you complete parts 1 and 2 don’t matter they both come together to make the complete Evolution story.
