Lilo's Lair #25: Egg, Inc. Presented by Saljack Enterprises. Gaming. Animation. Media. Entertainment. Woman Owned.

Hey, you guys! Hope you enjoyed your weekend. My weekend involved trying out a new phone game. It’s egg-cellent, haha. The game is Egg, Inc. It’s available for free on Android and iOS and came out July of 2016. It is one of the top rated games in the Android Play Store with a rating of 4.7 our of 5. In the iTunes store, it’s rated a 4.8 out of 5. Now, I know sometimes ratings don’t mean everything. There are plenty of games in the top rated slot that aren’t egg-sactly my type of game. However, I fell in love with this one and played it until my battery died, twice. I was finally able to walk away for a little bit of time after that.

In Egg, Inc. you are building a chicken farm! Don’t worry, the chickens aren’t being slaughtered. The purpose of this chicken venture is eggs. From plain old eggs to dark matter eggs. The driving force of the game is hatching more chickens to get more eggs. To do this, you tap (as frantically and insanely as possible) on a big red button that has a chicken shape on it. However, you can only get as many chickens as your hatchery is capable of making at a time. More chickens, more eggs, more money. This game is all about making more money to make upgrades to your business so you can make even more money.

There are several aspects beyond the hatchery. The second most immediate thing is the chicken coops. You start off with one little shack that quickly fills up with too many chickens. Oh no! You can build three more coops for a total of four. Throughout the game, you can keep upgrading these coops from a little shack to some crazy futuristic thing called a Planet Portal. I guess you can fit a planet’s worth of chickens in it.

The next thing you should know about is science research. This is where most of your money will go. Research is where you can make all types of upgrades to everything. You can upgrade the hatchery to make more chickens, you can improve your egg size to reap more profits, you can improve your fleet of trucks so they can carry more eggs to your buyers. There are a ton of options and you slave to try and complete them all.

The only other big thing is the trucks for shipping your eggs. It’s the same aspect as the coops. You start with a tiny little van and move up to bigger and bigger semi trucks until you transcend anything familiar and get a Quantum Transporter. That is one of the great things about this game that there are so many options for upgrades that they have created futuristic fiction vehicles and chicken homes.

What I think is the most ingenious part of the game is the ability to upgrade your egg farm to a new type of egg. For instance, you start the game farming regular eggs, and after not too long you can sell your farm to buy a new Superfood Egg farm. You have to start over with all your upgrades, but you make money faster and therefore can still see the progression from farm to farm. Why I think this is ingenious is because without it the game would get boring. With it, you can still experience the satisfaction of quick success, but your achievements are still staggered because of having to restart a newer, better farm. I should mention, it’s completely up to you whether you want to sell your farm for a new one. If you rather stay with the farm, you have then that’s totally fine.

I’m going to warn you now, this game is egg-dicting. This was the first time I’ve ever played a game till my phone shut itself off. I was too engrossed to pay attention to my battery! Which, this game isn’t any more of a power suck than any other game. I had just played it for a long time. My left hand was completely numb, a fire ant had crawled on my arm and bite me, but I didn’t even notice, our star collapsed, and I still played on.

Now that you understand how much I like this game let me tell you some negatives. The first is how those tricky game developers made the benefits from watching ads to good to pass up! Every ten minutes or more the game offers you the opportunity to watch a video for money (or gold eggs, which you can trade in for special research or free chickens). Every single time I watch the 25-second ad because they offer you such an enormous amount of money that you cannot ignore it. Okay, to be honest, this isn’t really a negative for me. I love the opportunity to make a pile of cash to get a few quick upgrades. The one real negative for me is the button clicking to get chickens hatched. Part of me understands how it helps the game. It keeps the game fast paced and exciting. The other part is annoyed by just how much clicking this game calls for. It’s tedious. There is an option to upgrade to just holding the button down, but it’s hard to achieve. After some time you get real tired of frantic button spamming over and over and over.

However, overall I love this game. It is a great phone game with hardly any negatives. It’s quick, addictive, FREE, and straightforward. It offers lots of upgrade options for lots of game-play time and even takes automatic screen shots of the game ever so often in case you want to share your farm with friends. Two thumbs up from me!

    Sounds like a mix between that plort game and Roller Coaster Tycoon. If this idea takes off, I’m sure there will be many sequels along the way.

    What makes this game interesting is the chicken farm. I have always liked animals. Growing the farm by acquiring more chickens is great

    Wow. This looks like a cool game to have some fun in our free time. From your review I think it might be slightly different from a regular farming game but only with chickens, When I first read the title I thought it is going to be like a egg catching game sort of but I got pretty excited when I read the word “Dark Matter eggs.” I really do want to download this awesome game soon. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Is it just me? Because I don’t really find this game fun. Haha. I agree, we couldn’t just trust the ratings of a game unless we play it ourselves. Most ratings lie. Haha.

    Button mashing may not be the most intelligent way of playing but if it is a good game it will sell. I am curious about the game and its simplicity.
