Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg

Into Liquid Sky
20 November 2004
  • Excerpt: It's nice to see Sonic Team, the guys responsible for Sonic the Hedgehog , try to step away from Sega's mascot for once and try something a little different in the platforming genre (Yeah, I know they're responsible for Samba de Amigo and Phantasy Star Online as well).
  • Pros: Nice puzzle elements, Bright and colorful level design, Theme song you can't help but hum along with
  • Cons: Needs a little more polish, Could use a wider range of enemies and goals, Cute factor may turn off some gamers

  • Summary: Despite its camera problems, which can make the gameplay needlessly frustrating at points, this is still a solidly entertaining platformer that offers plenty of value, especially for fans of Sonic Team's earlier titles, who should appreciate its allusions to there older games.

  • Summary: Billy Hatcher & the Giant Egg is a lot like experiencing sugar free candy for the first time. It looks good; it has the same texture and feel of regular candy, and yet manages to be enormously disappointing when eaten.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg is a fun and original platformer that provides a refreshing take on the genre. It requires an open mind and a degree of patience, and those judging the game by its cover will be surprised by the challenge. Buy it and have a clucking good time.

  • Conclusion: SONICTEAM. Not since the Saturn has SONICTEAM produced an all-new platformer? It sounds like they were a bit jaded with the whole experience but it’s obvious the downtime was well spent drinking heavily, working on a farm and thinking how cool it would be to be a rooster.

  • Excerpt: Platformers. They've been around since the dawn of videogames, they're a perennial favorite that never goes out of style, and every person who's ever laid hands on a controller has likely played one at one time or another. But exactly what is a platformer? This can be hard to define.
