Egg Mania: Eggstreme Madness, also known as Eggo Mania[2] in PAL territories, is a puzzle video game released in 2002 by HotGen.

Gameplay[edit]

At the start of a level, crates begin falling from the sky. Each one has a picture of the block it contains on it. Stack these blocks and build a tower up to the hot-air-balloon to finish the level. However, it is not that simple; the water at the bottom of the level rises and if the water reaches a row with a hole in it, the row will be destroyed;[3] if the player decides to take a shortcut, the water will rise faster[4] Also, several enemies randomly appear, some stealing your crates, and some dragging you into the water.[5] There are also items in bubbles that give you a power-up or help to destroy an opponents towers.
