Egg! is a new virtual pet game for the iOS and Android platforms. You start off with one egg, and as you feed your egg and care for it, it grows and grows until it eventually hatches. You can own many different kinds of eggs, each with their own likes and dislikes, and build your own collection. Plus, you can share them with other players, and visit their eggs as well. Read on for some tips and tricks for Egg!
Each of your eggs has their own likes and dislikes, but there is almost no need to remember them because your egg will tell you everything that it wants the most with the thought bubble that appears over its head. Of course, you can say no to your egg by swiping the thought bubble away, but when your egg is giving you the answers, use them whenever possible.
Charms are the premium currency of the game, and are used to purchase more eggs. You can buy them using real-life money, but there are a few ways to earn them for free. One way is to go to the train station, take a ride to the extra areas, then go to the theater. Tap it and an ad will play. If you watch the ad, you’ll earn a free charm. It’s not much, but they add up, since a new egg costs 25 charms.
Minigames are a great way to earn a lot of coins, so if you are running short on food, shampoo or other supplies for your egg, go to the minigames and play them. Figure out which one you’re the best at, as the better you perform at the games, the more coins you will earn. If there is a difficulty select, like in the tilting game, pick hard, because even when you don’t do so well, you still earn more coins than you would in the easy ones.
If you’re used to playing endless runner games (especially 2D top-down runners), then when you play the Space Egg game, turn your phone vertical, so that your egg is moving upwards. When you do this, you’ll have to avoid objects by swiping from side to side instead of up and down, making it much easier to use your muscle memory and get a high score.
Hit the train station and you can go to other people’s houses and interact with their eggs. Tickle their eggs and you will earn bonus coins. You can do this for each egg in a person’s house, and when you run out of eggs to play with, move onto the next house and play with the eggs there to make the same thing happen.
