Happy Atari Day! How About Playing Some Eggomania To Celebrate Thanksgiving!

The 26th of the Month has come around once again and that means it’s time to come join us in celebrating all things Atari! With it being Thanksgiving it seemed the perfect time to share the 1982 Atari cart by U.S. Games Corporation entitled ‘Eggomania’!

Now I know that this cover art from the always awesome Atarimania might make one think this is just some weird bird…but I ask you to look at the screenshot at the top of the post and tell me that isn’t a turkey up on the high wire!

Using the Paddle controllers, 1 to 2 players were tasked with guiding the Blue Bear to catch the falling eggs with the aid of the upside down top hat on his head. Thanks to HighRetroGamelord89’s YouTube Channel we can see the game in action.
