The problem with 'doing' all the time without this needed break is that we can lose touch with 'being'. And all things considered, being is infinitely more important than doing.
The object of the game is quite simple: climb as high as you can by repeatedly landing an egg into the basket above. Click the mouse or press the space bar to launch the egg.
