Eggggg – The Platform Puker: A strange sick escapade on Apple TV
Eggggg – The Platform Puker is a hilarious escapade drenched in a weird rainbow world of egg induced vomit.
Eggggg – The Platform Puker
Here is a game that is literally sick! It’s sick as in awesome, sick as in disgusting and in fact it’s all about sick. Gilbert is a kid with a nasty egg allergy. He wants to go to the neighbor’s birthday party, but his mean Aunt Doris won’t let him. After all, cake is made with eggs (though she still feeds him eggs to be mean). So Gilbert does what any weird, mistreated, hyperactive child would do and escapes out the window. What follows is a surreal story and a sick platform adventure about eggs, killer cyborg chickens and, yes, puke.
Sticky Pink Sick
Eggggg will certainly go down as one of the most weirdly original in the platform game genre. Gilbert has no super jump powers and no jet pack to get him through the platform maze. However, he does have eggs. Consuming them, he vomits violently, propelling himself up walls and over platforms and obstacles. He has regular lime green sick, sticky pink sick and even pee yellow super rocket propelling sick. Generally he eats the green sick variety of egg throughout the 21 levels. But as Gilbert advances levels other egg-vomit powers become available. Barfing green, Gilbert jumps and climbs with quick, two-touch controls using the Siri remote. Touch and hold controls make use of the sticky pink sick. The pee yellow sick eggs catapult Gilbert on a timer with thumb-slide movements. Consume 3 eggs per level and collect golden nuggets and help get Gilbert to the party.
A world of weird
Technically every video game is rather surreal, but Eggggg – The Platform Puker by Norwegian developers Hyper Games is totally… out there! Over and above the puke propelling platform premise, this game screams weird and unique. The artwork style, illustrated by award winning Spanish sibling duo Brosmind is funky brilliant and will likely look familiar. The sound design by a guy named Bendik is humorously odd. It features whimsical music, clucks, gurgles, raspberries and hoots, squalls, giggles, squawks and whoops… and of course regurgitation sounds galore. Take Gilbert, a hyperactive kid with a goofy grin and redheaded mohawk. He can’t stay still, which means constant game action. Then there’s the killer cyborgs–spider chickens with saw blades, pummeling fists and hen egg shooting machines. Add the mustached eggs, circular saw traps and bubble trampolines and you are in a world of weird. Did I mention the puke?
Playing Eggggg – The Platform Puker is sick on mobile, but even sicker big-screen on Apple TV. Gameplay is fast and fun and works beautifully with the Siri remote. Getting the gist of the puke maneuvers is easy, but some levels offer a worthy challenge to complete fully. There’s also hilarious variety on gameplay mechanics throughout the increasingly difficult levels. With names like Puke Skywalker (The puke is strong in this one), Sticky Stuff or Retch for the Sky you can imagine. Basically Gilbert must find all 3 eggs and collect at least 50 nuggets to get 3 stars. Go back to levels if you don’t initially complete them or to improve your score.
That’s it… simply sick!
