Don’t count your chickens before they hatch, but definitely keep track of the eggs strewn about your farm in Chicken Pox: Scrambled Eggs.
Chicken Pox’s odd premise – clean up your land by scooping up eggs while riding a lawn mower – is brought to life with a brilliant control scheme. Move the mower by tapping on it and tracing a path over all those eggs. Lift your finger and the mower stops. It’s incredibly intuitive – moving across the screen feels like doodling.
Once you beat a level, the game shows a satellite view of the shapes you cut into the grass. The game is designed so your seemingly aimless scribbles over eggs and around meandering cows and sheep turn out to be intricate sketches: an axe, perhaps, or a house.
New vehicles are unlocked as you play, letting you trade your mower for tractors, helicopters and submarines. But regardless of the ride, Chicken Pox’s beautifully streamlined mechanics make this egg hunt a real treat.
