"The first game of the series was reduced to the essentials. It's easy to summarise: The hunter in front of the screen must shoot down as many grouse as possible in 90 seconds. This generates points. That's it. Simple, but effective!
This harmless little game was what set the ball rolling. And yet the beginning was so innocent. In order to advertise a brand of spirit [Johnny Walker], a few young people armed themselves with laptops and sent unsuspecting people in pubs on a specially designed grouse hunt. The hundreds of fans the game found quickly became several million thanks to the Internet.
This game still lives on with yearly updates, online versions and more. You can find it all at the official website http://www.moorhuhn.com/.

Rather choke a chicken!
The OG productivity killer back in 1998. It's said to have cost companies millions of Deutsche Mark (because it ran on every dirty office machine) when in fact gaming employees are more productive. Proof: I was playing Morrowind before in the office, now I am being productive in writing this review.
Technically and graphically, Moorhuhnjagd is a tragedy. The gameplay (aim and then click to kill the bog chicken) is simpler than Tetris, and it gets old really quick. Try it out when you want to see what was the hype for secretary Sally and accountant Andy back in the day.
