_Speedy Eggbert_ is a parallax side-scrolling action game where the title
character and hero has a phenomenal vertical leap. Eggbert must travel through
a rich variety of levels using his ability to walk left or right, look up or
down, and also jump extremely high. While he has no direct offensive
capabilities, there are a number of power-ups that help him along his way.
These include jet packs and skateboards. Eggbert faces a variety of threats to
his well-being, most notably bombs, lava, and some roving, exploding tractors.
Each level has treasure that Eggbert can collect along with actual eggs which
double as one-ups.
The game also features networked gameplay where up to 4 players can
participate in a game. Further, Speedy Eggbert comes with a complete level
editing toolkit for constructing new playable levels.
