At its heart, the 3D puzzle platformer Billy Hatcher and a Giant Egg is a fun twist on Alice in Wonderland. Young Billy Hatcher becomes an unlikely hero when he finds himself transported to the magical chicken realm of Morning Land, where he dons a chicken suit and sets off to save the world from Dark Raven and his army of crows.
The colorful eggs Billy finds offer many new abilities, which help you navigate obstacles or defeat enemies. Protect an egg and help it hatch, and you’ll find power ups or animal helpers inside. Billy Hatcher was developed by Sega’s Sonic Team, and certain rare eggs contain companions from their other games, including Sonic the Hedgehog himself.
Billy Hatcher also offers some hidden fun for Game Boy Advance owners. After completing certain achievements in Billy Hatcher, you can connect your GBA to the GameCube and load additional Sonic Team games — including Puyo Pop, ChuChu Rocket!, and Nights: Time Attack. On the surface, Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg might look like it’s just for kids, but even adult GameCube fans should give ridiculously fun game a second look.
