  • Summary: In Egg Mania: Eggstreme Madness, you must build a tower from falling puzzle pieces to reach a balloon basket high above. Your tower must be strong and stable, or it will collapse on itself back into the water below. If that wasn't hard enough, you'll have opponents that will do anything to stop you--from throwing bombs and hammers to summoning clouds of lightning. This is a frenetic puzzle game that both young and old gamers can enjoy. Expand

  1. It's not very original. However, it still manages to capture that oddly addictive quality that every puzzle game must have, especially as a two-player game. [Dec 2002, p.118]

  3. Though derivative, Egg Mania provides a perspective on the Tetris formula that's fresh enough and an adequate amount of gameplay variety to keep puzzle fans engaged.

    It's just a game concept that wears off quickly.
  5. A harmless diversion that any "Tetris" addict will be able to pick up and beat in an hour or two. [Winter 2002, p.102]

    You don’t feel anywhere near as connected to the gameplay as you do with "Tetris" or "Bust-A-Move." Another problem is that despite all of the chaos going on around you the game feels quite slow.

    This is a solid puzzle game. The whole egg theme is a bit lame at 1st, but admitedly it grew on me. Now I kinda like the eggs. The game plays similar to tetris but there's an egg person on screen grabbing and arranging all the blocks.. Instead of making lines, you must make a structurally sound platform with the blocks. If there's too many spaces in your platform, it will collapse and you'll be back at square one. The goal is to get your little egg guy to the top of the screen using the built platform to stand on. It's solid and addictive enough to become a permanent fixture in the puzzle gaming genera, but I think the title and egg theme keep it from mainstream popularity. I now like this puzzler better than my bust a move and dr mario (tetris is still king). Egg Mania is much more impressive than you might expect. Expand
