McDonald’s just came out with BILLY’S GIANT EGG
this Thursday and I just got one of the few remaining units. The
packaging has a typo on it and only says BILLY’ GIANT EGG.
BILLY’S GIANT EGG is the second last electronic game in the Sega 3
series and I got a Cheeseburger Happy Meal but didn’t eat it (told the
McDonald’s server that I only wanted the game, but I took the drink). ;)
The manual is printed like the previous iterations of the McDonald’s
/ SEGA collaboration – it’s a single sheet of paper with instructions
on how to play the game – in this case BILLY’S GIANT EGG, another Sonic
BILLY’S GIANT EGG also comes in a clamshell design and has two
directional buttons in the shape of eggs. The premise of the game is to
get Billy to collect fruits while the egg gets bigger and bigger (three
sizes) while avoiding hazards.
Here is a screenshot of the action – BILLY’S GIANT EGG was way too
easy for me. I finished the game on the first try and consistently
managed to get through all three levels and hatch the egg. It was a
total contrast to the previous unit’s hard gameplay.
Collect 20 fruits to advance a level and hatch the egg!
