Speedy Eggbert is a computer game for Windows-based PCs published by EPSITEC and developed by eGames. It was released on September 13, 1998, to very little response to the media. The game is a side scrolling action/puzzle game featuring "Eggbert", a yellow egg, as the main character. Although Speedy Eggbert was not a high-profile game when it was released, it managed to get its very own fanbase. A sequel also exists.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
The whole game is centered on a central hub, where you can access all of the game's seven themed worlds. At first you can only go to the practice level, where you will learn most of the controls listed above. The rest of the controls are not shown to you during the practice game; they are left for the player to discover these moves while passing through the levels.
The game has over 40 levels, ranging from easy to difficult. The point of each level is to collect all the treasure chests and then move to the endpoint. The game includes enemies which you cannot destroy normally, but that you can destroy using vehicles. The game lets you drive a Helicopter, a Glue Tank, a Jeep and a Skateboard. Each of them lets you use a special ability.
