Review of 'Egg Saver'

Rating:2 User: YOR

It appears this game is called "Egg Catcher!" rather than Egg Saver, I can only guess Sinclair Programs named it Egg Saver. This is a very short game, 50 golden eggs fall down and each are worth money, collect the eggs to earn the money, the game ends after the 50th egg drops, that's it. It's impossible to get all 50 eggs because some fall so far away it's impossible to reach it in time unless you use a bit of trickery to make sure you anticipate it quicker I assume, like save states. Also you have to catch the eggs dead centre I believe, if you are just out it won't count. Also, don't bother counting how many eggs you collect, the game only tells you how many you collect by its money count and it's a frankly a distraction. It's not a terrible game, it's just short, 50 eggs and we're done, but it's a nice time filler at least and I've played a lot more terrible and unplayable type-ins lately, so it's nice to be able to play one properly for once.
