A most Eggcellent Puzzle game, and not just for Easter! :)
Egglomania takes the logic of our best selling puzzle game BoXiKoN to a new dimension. Carefully fit your eggs into the tray forming lines in three directions at once. Eggs appear in ever increasing complexity of colors, patterns and arrangements. Eggs must be lined up and shipped out before they crack! Use your skills of organization and planning to ensure you never run out of space! Sounds easy? Give it a go!
Egglomania is an addictive arcade puzzle game; it's easy to play but hard to crack! A fresh addition to the classic puzzle game family.
Compete against others on the online High Score table!
- Very simple to learn
- 16 Levels to crack!
- Online Score Tracking and World Tables.
- Auto-save and auto-continue
- Uses multi touch for rotations.
- That "one more try" feeling!
Collecting eggs has never been this fun!
This is good goofy fun in the same vein as Boxikon but now on a hexagonal grid without the bombs or special color groupings for bonus points.
In this game it is all about making straight rows of eggs across the board. Just drag one of the egg groupings from below, rotate it around to your desired angle, and then drop it in place. By making a straight line of eggs across the board, the eggs in that line will be eliminated and you'll score some points. The game ends when the hen tries to add a new egg cluster down below and all cells are already filled. Larger lines score more and if you manage to make multiple lines at the same time, you'll score even more (basically every cell eliminated in a single move has a progressively higher value as you can see in the screenshots above).
As the levels progress the pieces you'll need to places get bigger and the new pieces fill up the three holding cells quicker. How long can you hold out?
While you'll need to go out of app and in Safari to see the global scores, I like how even just the local scoring will track your 50 top scores as well as rate your scores when first posted (with descriptive words like "Weak", "Average", "Great", etc.) so you'll get at least some idea if you're really getting a good score or not.
A very fun and polished puzzler
Fun, polished, and cute, but be prepared for a challenge. You are presented with 3 differently shaped pieces at a time. Just drag them up to the board to place. If you need to rotate the piece then use another finger to swipe up or down to rotate, and then release to place. You goal is to make solid lines across the board to make eggs disappear and score points.
There is a timer at the bottom that resets once you place a piece, and the pieces become more complex in shape as you go up in level.
There are global high scores, but you have to exit the app to view them. This was the only thing I didn't really like.
Fun shape fitting game
Fun game! Make rows of eggs fill up, that will get rid of the row and create space again. It's got a very nice UI, fun sounds effects, and the controls work quite well. I'd prefer an in-app online scoring system and then including a few achievements would add to replayability. Overall, very nice, polished and fun game.
