Egg Run is a silly action strategy Flash game, and yet it is surprisingly fun due to its simplicity of design. The object is to catapult the egg to catch the twig(!), and then land on the platform that holds the ladder to advance to the next level.
Control is with the mouse, and it's a bit quirky so listen-up. Click on the egg and drag in the opposite direction from the path you wish the egg to fly. While dragging, you will see a green dotted line showing the projected path to help you aim. Release the mouse to send the egg flying toward its target. You can change the direction that the egg will launch by clicking once on the egg.
Of special note is the fact that if you drag the mouse outside of the play field, Flash loses track of the mouse and will not recognize that you released the mouse button. This is a characteristic of all Flash games.
There are three (3) different courses that offer increasingly more difficult situations. For example, the medium course (pictured) features platforms with ice that make the egg slide a distance before coming to rest; and the hard course features an outerspace environment with reduced gravity. And while getting through each course is the primary objective, doing so with the fewest number of 'moves' earns you a place on the high score list—actually "low score list" would be more appropriate.
Analysis: I really like the simplicity this game offers. It is very similar to the previously reviewed Saltacol, though not nearly as beautiful. Egg Run is simple and accessible, and it offers a variety of courses to try which extends its replay value. To its detriment, the choices of egg, twig, and even the game title seem completely random—maybe "Egg Launch" would have been more appropriate? Furthermore, the level design is plain and uninspired. These are minor complaints however, and do not spoil the fun that is packed into this silly little casual game. Click.
