Funny bunny fun with Easter Eg on iOS

Funny bunny fun with Easter Eg on iOS

Manchester, UK.– April 6, 2011 – Easter Eg - An addictive egg-chasing Easter game.
Some games are obscure. And yet they are classics at the same time. Remember Croco Magneto on the Amstrad CPC? Of course you don't. It was a public domain game that was produced after everyone had given up on the machine. But it was absolutely amazing!
Specially for Easter, indie developer Spaghetti Studios is reviving the spirit of that game. It has the same simple control system but with a host of extras and a bit of extra polish. Plus a bunny. And Easter eggs. And evil moles spinning poisonous flowers. It is shaping up to be a fantastic game for Easter.
It is also going to be a special, limited edition release. As soon as Easter is over, so the game will be removed from the App Store.

Review: Hysteria Project 2 by BulkyPix


After a false start on part one (I loaded it up one time and just watched a slight intro without actually playing the game), I couldn’t put it down the first time I actually tried to play.  In fact, I liked it so much that I played it again before playing part two.  Needless to say I was pretty stoked about venturing into the second installment of this psychological horror mystery, hoping the answers to all my questions would be revealed.  Well, I’m still hoping…  At least it was an enjoyable second leg of the journey.

Developed by a programmer from Barcelona, Puzzle Man (now spelled correctly) varies from easy 24 piece jobs up to 300+ challenges. If you are into puzzles (which I am admittedly not), check it out for just 99 cents here in the app store...
