What parents need to know

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."

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.
