We’ve been covering Alda Games since their debut launch Save the Snail on the Play Store (which by the way has over half a million downloads) and I’ve personally enjoyed all of their titles since. One factor that’s common to all of their games is the wonderful hand drawn graphics and beautiful game environments, which offer the perfect ambiance when you need to unwind after a tiresome day. The Czech developers have now unleashed their latest game, Eggies on the Play Store, the App Store as well as on the Windows platform.
Eggies Android Game Review
Eggies is a fun take on the Tamagotchi games, where you take care of cute and totally adorable virtual pets, who are hatched from eggs. You are first introduced to Timuko, who will show you around the Eggies world. You first see the cute little fellow as an egg, and are shown options to customize him with some fancy headgear, eye color, shell color, and shell designs. Once you’ve customized your eggie, you can head over to his home where you can take care of him.
A hidden map indicates the places where you can take your eggie. For instance, you tap on the hospital when he is sick and buy and feed him his medication. Similarly, you take him to a restaurant when he is hungry and buy him yummy items from the expansive menu. When you are done with those tasks, its time to play some fun mini games. There are 9 mini games in all, and you can choose to play them in one of four modes: Easy, Medium, Hard, or Expert.
All tasks will earn you rewards and bonuses by way of coins. You can go to the calendar in his home to see when he will hatch. If you think the waiting times are too long, you can use the coins earned to speed up the process. Once the egg is hatched, you can place him in your album and find other eggies to hatch. There are about 11 monsters in all with birth days varying from 4 days to as many as 40.
Eggies is a great game for both kids and adults, but I feel that the little ones may just enjoy this a little more. The mini games in Eggies are not just fun elements, but have an educational impact too, in terms of sharpening your mind and reflexes. The developers are promising to bring more mini games and monsters in future updates so there’s lots to look forward to in the future too. Finally, I have to mention (once again) that the hand drawn graphics are simply lovely and the soundtrack thoroughly enjoyable.
Eggies is free to play, however, there are IAPs here if you want to speed up the hatching process or buys some more cute outfits for the eggies, so keep an eye on your kids and ensure that they are not spending more than necessary.
