Summary

Eggcelerate is a game whereby you have an egg in a basket on your car roof and you need to navigate the level and get to the end. Sounds simple and to be honest it kinda is but the charm and playability of it all make for a refreshing palette cleanser of sorts. I could turn it on and have a good laugh, who cares if I made progress, just the sheer fear of unknown and crazy hijinks is enough to satisfy me. They have absolutely nailed the handling, the level design is good as it mixes smoothly with tough terrain in equal measures. Overall it’s just so much fun and I should be commended for not using one egg pun.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
