To truly appreciate Eggs of Steel I think you either need to be drunk, on medication or very young-not that those things should ever go together. It's just that this game is so weird, that being in another state of mind or not having a fully developed brain is the only way I can imagine somebody could enjoy playing it. EoS is a strange cross between an action and a puzzle game, kind of like Lost Vikings--except a lot more insane. There's a certain comedic appeal to EoS but that certainly isn't worth the time and energy--not to mention the cash--you'd have to sink into the game to go through it. Granted, EoS is mostly designed for children in mind but even with that said, the game's just not that good. Besides the game's sub standard graphics you have its poor excuse for gameplay. You have to punch a series of time clocks and secure four keys in order to ultimately reset machines in the mill (you're an egg night watchman by the way...don't ask). Of course, while going through level after level of floating girders, broken catwalks and twisty tubes you realize just how little fun you're going to have in the process. Oh. and those cinemas...wow. Annoying is the best way to describe the overall experience--unless you're like one or two years old. Maybe then l it would be somewhat amusing.
As if you couldn't tell by its name, this is one seriously whacked-out game. It's so foreign and strange, but that gives it a lot of its appeal. The surreal level designs and FMV are far out and cute at the same time, making this a good, entertaining title for the twisted youth of today. Speaking of the levels... although interesting, the multiple paths and non-intuitive layouts can get a little confusing. Still, it's not too bad.
Eggs of Steel is one of the most bizarre, truly surreal games I have ever played. It definitely gets points for originality. Even though it's primarily aimed at kids. I found it oddly addictive in the several hours that I spent with it, even though it never really gets all that challenging. The control could've been a bit tighter, and the FMV scenes are pretty cheesy, but on the whole I somehow dig it. Please tell me I'm gonna be OK...
What's up with this game? I'm not sure if it's designed with kids or druggies in mind. Looking past the game's strangeness, I find it to be rather entertaining, in a mindless, goofy sort of way. Sometimes, it gets a bit hard to tell what's going on, or what I'm supposed to be doing. The strange camera angles don't help one bit. But if you're looking for something incredibly silly that's not too hardcore, check out Eggs of Steel.
