    Egg vs. Chicken is one of those rare gems that I have to encourage as many people as possible to buy. It's cute, it's easy to play and it entices you into playing for much much longer than you'd envisage. It could well be the next Plants vs. Zombies or Angry Birds. It certainly deserves to be.

    For a simple puzzler that will get players thinking, Oh! Sheep is a nice addition to the genre. The first 15 levels are a generous amount of free levels to get a feel for the game and the $0.99 price tag is worth the total 90 levels.

    A fairly cute and amusing package, though. The slight addition of RPG elements to help buffer spells and amulets between battles, along with the fairly difficult achievements for each individual level give plenty of incentive to go back and try again, as returning will not result in just rehashing with the exact same power level. And again, if humor and writing are something to be appreciated, this game has quite a bit on offer.
