Review of 'Egg, The'

The Egg is another dubious title from Automata, a company that mostly released crappy games. This was released as part of the 10 Pack Volume Two compilation. Mostly if not all, are very mediocre, The Egg is the only title I barely feel compelled to play. You move an egg in a 3D perpendicular maze and collect the blue balls. All levels lookalike, besides the mazes themselves, which makes the game a bit tedious. There are a few nasties about, not very harmful, and overall the game is very easy. In fact, too easy.
