Eier Wuppen (Egg Toss)


Comments (7) | Views (968)

From Germany comes this cute egg tossing Flash game for some family fun this Easter Sunday. Eier Wuppen is an action strategy game in which players catapult eggs of various weights and sizes and try to catch them in a basket. Although most of the instructions are in German, you don't need to understand German to have fun with this game.

To begin simply click "Play". You do not need to register, though you cannot get onto the high score list without logging in. Registration is free by providing a nickname, your birthday, and an email address.

Everything in this game is controlled with the mouse. When the game begins, one of the hens will lay an egg on the see-saw. Depending on the size of the egg—small, medium, or large—you will want to pick up an appropriately sized animal as counter-weight. Click and drag the hare, bear, or hen to position it above the see-saw. Drop the animal to catapult the egg, up and over, to the hare waiting on the other side. When the egg is launched, move the mouse to position the hare and catch the egg in the basket. Play continues until you miss 5 eggs.

You can use the owl as a guide to see if your chosen animal is of the correct weight and height to get the egg over to the basket. However, the owl does not react very quickly, and relying on the owl will cost you points since the score an egg is worth begins to count down as soon as it is laid. Still, the owl provides valuable information when just beginning to learn how to play.

Graphically, the game is polished and über-cute with lovable animal characters and humorous animations. Eggs sparkle with particles and sound effects in-flight, and create a very satisfying sound when caught. Although the soundtrack is whimsical and catchy, it is a bit repetitive. Fortunately the developer, Extrajetzt, included a sound button to turn it off, just click the musical note.

Eier Wuppen is excellent Easter fun for gamers of all ages. Click.

Update: As Laura pointed out, the German site that was hosting the game has removed it from their server. If the game surfaces again someday, I will link to the new site and update this entry accordingly. In the meantime, I have removed the game from the recommended section.

Thanks to everyone who told me the link was broken to this game. The Egg Toss site uses a pop-up to display the game, and therefore if you have a pop-up blocker it would have prevented the game from loading.

However, I have since found a different link to the game that gets around the pop-up issue, so the game should work for anyone, as long as you allow pop-ups from my site -- and if you have played games here before, then you already do allow pop-ups here. =)

I found that if you send an egg flying sometimes something will come floating down and you can catch it for points and your egg does not get broken. I cannot figure out what it is but it doesn't work everytime...

It seems that site has removed that game. It comes up with a "page could not be found" error. I couldn't see it in their "games" section either.

That's too bad, as it was an excellent game.

Thanks for mentioning it, Laura. I'll update the entry and remove the game from the recommended section.

I did a search for this game and found a site that has the game! http://www.juegosdiarios.com/juegos/Eier-Wuppen.html The site is not in english. After five tries though I can't seem to get the game to work any longer and results in me needing to refresh the page...

Just thought I'd pass this along..
