chickenegg.jpgJohnBA new game from Donut Games, creator of Castle Smasher, has just rolled onto the web: Chicken & Egg. All the cute chickens have been trapped in their eggs by the Easter Bunny. It's your job to match like-colored shells together by sliding the eggs across the grid. When the pairs come together, they hatch, revealing a set of rather bewildered chicks!

The game takes place on an 11x7 grid that looks like a chess board. Eggs, walls, obstacles and dots are placed around the screen. Click an egg to bring up a set of arrows showing you where it can slide, then click an arrow to send it flying. Eggs slide in a straight line until they come in contact with an obstacle.

You have a limited number of shots in Chicken & Egg, so be economical with your moves. The trick is to plan several steps ahead and only slide an egg if you're sure it needs to be moved. Collecting yellow dots will increase your score, but don't worry too much about them, as your bonus for finishing with shots remaining is much greater.

There are 30 puzzles in all, ten for each level of difficulty. Even some of the early puzzles will require thought as well as trial-and-error. Plenty of challenge to keep you busy.

Analysis: I'm always excited when a new game from Donut Games hits. Chicken & Egg has all the trappings of a quick, coffee-break-style game: easy to play, polished, and, well, cute. Having a limited number of shots adds to the game's challenge, but sometimes I wanted to sit and experiment with the puzzles without worrying about shot limitations.

Polished, simple and fun. Easter hits a bit early this year.

I like it!

Watch the timing on the spikes, it took me a few levels to realize that they can be passed if they're down.

I wish that they listed the diffrent kinds of obsticals so that you didn't have to sacerfice your score with trial and error. Perhaps it is a good thing, though; the trial and error.

A tip: if you come to a stop on the spikes when they are down, they will not rise again until you leave. Also, unless you are able to get at least three bonus dots by using an extra shot, it's not worth it.

Hmmm. I'm stuck on C4... played it every which way but one (the right one!). I seem to be hooked - otherwise I'd have thrown the laptop out of the window a long time ago :-)

are you still stuck on c4?? heres a big hint:

first move the green and pink eggs together. then move the bottom blue egg to the right and up. after that it should be pretty simple.

hope that helps!

A very nice puzzle game. I'm stuck on C2 (for now), but really enjoy puzzles where you have to plan at least a move or two ahead. It reminds me of a mini-chess game, one where every move castles the King.

Shoot. Now I'm stuck on C4. I see what you mean, Nathan: it's a tough one.

I guess I'm just dense, mandygirl. I can't seem to get the sequence right. I'm starting to wish they had Arthur Murray-type "eggy" dance-steps to follow.

(Yeah...I know. I'm old.)

Actually, it looks like yellow dots are worth a lot more than shots. Remaining shots are 250 points each. Yellow dots increase in score during a shot. The first dot is 100, the second dot is 110, etc. So if you can average more than 3 dots per shot, then it's worth trading shots for dots.

Thanks MandyGirl - but like Merricat, I'm afraid I'm still stuck.

I can provide a possible solution to C1 though... if it's allowed:

Pink - up to top
corner white - right (blocked by pink egg)
same white - down to bale of straw
other white - down... and hatched.
2nd highest blue - down ... and hatched.
Highest blue - down to bale of straw
Last blue - up ... and hatched.
Top green - down ... and hatched
Highest pink - down then left.. and hatched.
Just enough shots to do it.

Cheers,
Nathan

Hi Zev,

It was only C4 that really got me stumped - even the later ones seemed easier (although C10 was a trifle tricky). Here's a walkthrough for C2 if you want it.. this time, I'll try using the spoiler tag line for line (I'm new to this) :-)

top left white - down, right and up - hatched

lower green - up - hatched

bottom right blue - left - hatched

top left orange - down, right, then up - hatched

left pink - right, then up - hatched

top orange - down, right, and up - hatched

Bingo!

Nathan,

I am not sure that is the same board for C2 that I have.

Your post shows 13 moves - the game only give 10. No worries, just eliminate the double orange.

However, the pinks on my do not meet with just the two moves you stated.

If you or anyone could offer further help please do so.

Sorry, CC - you're right. I stupidly put the orange move in twice :-) Just ignore the last one and it should work just fine :-) (The white one - moved first - will block the pink one okay) :-)

c10 is pretty easy........once you get it. one of those things that once you've done it ,it's like how dumb am I. move the green egg on top,up. Then move yellow egg to the right and pink egg to the left. 2nd yellow egg goes up and to the right. pink goes up and left. Now move blue down then left, and finish with green moving straight down.

@Joe:

I saw your post in the "latest comments" section and that's what started me playing this game. Like you, I got all but C8. It took hours but I finally figured it out.

Bottom blue up & right. Blue done.
Top pink down & left.
Top orange right, bottom orange left & up. Orange done.
Left pink right. Pink done.
Top green down & left. Green done.

No matter what, you always get that "DOH!" feeling when you see the solution, huh?

Haha! Never mind. Just needed some time away. Solved it when I looked with fresh eyes.

iphone Lvl 75 solution:
(note: R=row C=column counting from R1C1 top left square)

flick the brown egg at R3C9 to the left just for some points

now flick the brown egg at R6C9 up 2 squares (in front of the orange egg and hatching next to the first one you flicked)

flick the brown egg at R6C6 to the right so it sits under the orange egg then move that orange egg (R4C10) down to meet it

move the brown egg you just moved (now at R6C10) back to the left so it hatches and move the second orange egg (R4C3) down to meet it - now just move in the straight lines to connect orange and the last brown eggs

@Panda there's an answer up above for soft center too. And if you were referring to your answer for 65 it was a bit confusing and/or incomplete which is why I posted an alternative.

For the others:

3) Move the lower brown up, right (so it hits the barrier), then left so it hatches
4) Move the green now at the bottom to the left then move the other green down and left to meet it

Level 49

1) Move the right green to the left then move the right orange left to follow it and hatch
2) Move the left brown to the right then move the left blue right to follow it and hatch
3) Move the lower right pink egg up and left
4) Move the upper left pink egg down and right
5) Move both the lower brown and green egg up

Level 71

1) Move the upper pink left
2) Move the lower green left then up
3) Move the upper brown down then the blue on the right down to follow
4) Move the lower green to the right then the other green down
5) Move the upper pink right and then down
6) Move the blue right
