Billy Hatcher And The Giant Egg

Created by Yuöi naka, sega’s ‘equivalent’ of Miyamoto – is was his vision that delivered Sonic and Phantasy Star to the world – comes this PC-exclusive tale of a boy trying to return light to his dim home world. The clever stuff comes from the use of the eggs. Billy has to take care of the remarkably realistically animated eggs (trust us for a moment…) rolling them around the levels, avoiding enemies, and, once the eggs are ready, clicking the R button to hatch them. The various creatures that pop out from the shell aren’t quite what you’d expect – a penguin, a seal…and by pressing X you can use their different powers for your own sick entertainment. Nice.
First four-player screenshots right up there for you…
