I know Eggs is a bit of an obscure one that most players probably are not familiar with, so here are the basics:

 

- goal is to clear the screen of eggs.  You kick rows or columns of eggs and all eggs downstream of your kick will bounce off each other in a chain reaction, cracking the eggs.  Each hit progressively cracks the eggs further until they hatch.  Once hatched, a single additinal kick clears the chick from the screen.  

 

- you can fight off enemies by hitting them with moving eggs or shooting your eyeballs at them.  The enemies never actually go away permanently; they keep regenerating.  

 

-  you can shoot your boomerang eyeballs as many times as you like, but you need to be careful because you can't shoot them again until they return to you, and sometimes they get kind of stuck in the maze

 

- each screen will have one red chick hidden in the grid of eggs.  If the red chick is the last one cleared, you get a 10,000 point bonus when clearing the level

Looks like I will be winning the Participation award soon. 

 

Let's kick this week off on this weeks action.

 

I hope everyone gives Moonwalker a chance.  It has beat em up style, but it's way more.

What a bizarre mix. Eggs is super cute but a bit too clever for me...plus it's a maze game...sigh). Still, the chicks are lovely. Especially that little white chicken which runs around helping out.

 

Moonwalker is a load of WTH. Michael Jackson was an icon when I was growing up, but I haven't really thought about him for more than a decade so it's a huge nostalgia blast. I like the gfx/sfx & gameplay a lot, even if the whole game is just a one big ego-trip, and the kids shouting "Thank you, Michael!" might seem a bit odd these days.

 

EDIT:

MJ - 35,790

Eggs - 19,770

What are the green chics?

 

 

Each level has different insect enemies that roam the screen trying not only to kill you but to undo your progress.  If you have a partially cracked egg, the insects will pass by and "repair" it so you have to start over on that egg.  If you get the egg fully hatched and the little yellow chick is sitting there, the insects can no longer repair the egg but they can bite the chick and poison it, turning it green (looks more grey on my screen, but whatever).  You still need to clear these dead chicks to clear the level, but once they're poisoned you get no points for clearing them.  So to maximize your score, you want to try to kick as many chicks off the screen as you can while they're still yellow and healthy.

I've been playing a bit trying to focus on this for the extra points.  Makes it a bit harder, of course, but seems to be worth it.   My scores are already improving by a bit, even on runs when it feels like I'm "doing worse."

Eggs -- 121,820

 

 

This has turned in to quite the addictive game for me.  Guess I need to put it away and focus on Moonwalker a bit.  M.O. is close to running down my previously posted score.

Understatement of the year.

Wow.  This game has that ' come on I know you can do better' voice that keeps you there for a long time.

 

I managed to get to the 5th, where Mr Chomper starts to travel faster.
