A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
Ease of play: Controls involve sliding eggs horizontally and vertically to create clusters of three or more in order to fire them at oncoming chickens. Gameplay is fast-paced and hectic at times, but it's not difficult to pick up how to play.
Violence & Scariness
The player lobs eggs at oncoming chickens, causing them to squawk and disappear. Chickens who are hit but not defeated sport black eyes to show damage. Players can also set bombs and land mines as traps. The player will see description such as the chickens were "Roasted" or "Plucked."

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Egg vs Chicken is an arcade puzzle game where the goal is to defeat waves of attacking chickens by lobbing eggs at them. Players match three or more like-colored eggs in the bottom half of the screen to create a cluster, then flick the cluster up at the chickens. The violence is cartoonish: chickens sport black eyes if damaged, and disappear when defeated. Users can share high scores via the Game Center social network, but participation is strictly optional.
Is It Any Good?
EGG VS CHICKEN is a fast-paced twist on match-3 and falling block puzzle games with a little of the gameplay that made Plant vs. Zombies so popular, all presented in a funny, cartoonish manner. There's not a great deal of variation across the game's 36 levels besides a handful of power-ups and a few different kinds of eggs and chickens, but the game is fun nonetheless, and boasts straightforward controls and good production values too.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
