A side scrolling platformer where the main character is a humble, but deadly, Easter egg.
Through the history of platform games there have been many heroes. Mario, is the obvious one, then Sonic and then there are the deadly ones. There is the vengeful prisoner Nick Vrenna from Abuse and more recently Pablo, the test lab penguin of TAGAP. Now be prepared to meet a new hero: Pascual, an egg with attitude.
In this side-scrolling gun ‘n run game featuring mouse controlled aiming (as the two games previously mentioned) you play as a revenge fuelled egg who is on a desperate search for the nasty Easter rabbit – because he turned your father into chocolate.
Featuring gorgeous graphics, the hero battles through twelve increasingly near-impossible levels which move through forests, caves and cities and eventually to the big boss. All is well in the game and not a fault can be found – except that the enemies come at you with relentless, never-ending mindless bouncing glee and it is extremely difficult to get a toehold on them. Progression is sluggish because the merest scratch has you spectacularly shattering into a million pieces. You get no health and checkpoints are few and very far between.
Other than that, the game is fantastic. And it is, truly. The story is different (in a way) and the character is unique. Games featuring this mechanic are always interesting and I for one would like to see more of them, but for now, please enjoy this game which is not exactly relevant to the current holiday season, but nevertheless fun.
