1 Year Anniversary Celebration - NEW LOW PRICE!

Today (Aug 28th) is Iggy's birthday and what better way to celebrate than with the gift of cute killer baby dinosaurs!? That being said, we have determined that the best way to give this gift was to reduce the price of Iggy's Egg Adventure... forever!

Iggy's Egg Adventure is now just $4.99 USD (previously $9.99 USD) and Iggy will still be participating in sales and Steam hosted sales in the future.

So what does Iggy want for his birthday? Well, he gurgled and bawked in my ear that he wanted everyone to tell their friends about his adventure so that more people could enjoy it and take Iggy home with them.

Thank you to everyone who has supported and loved this game over the past year!

You play as Iggy, a baby Velociraptor who must rescue his mother from her evil caveman captors, while collecting as many of her eggs as you can along the way. Iggy’s Egg Adventure has a classic platform feel with stylized 3D graphics on a modern gaming engine.

This baby dino isn’t alone. Play through the game as Terry, Perry, Patrick, and Phredrick, four other dinos with their own unique skills. Fly through the air as Terry, spit acid as Phrederick, bash some skulls with Patrick, and try not to run screaming as Perry in a new way to play.

Key Features

  • The Vast World: They didn’t call it a supercontinent for nothing. Explore over 18 levels of awesome dino action in 6 different zones including the Plains, Jungle, Arctic and more!

What a hell, another platformer !?!
Yah, but wait this one is kind a special^^ Just listen to that video's music while reading this... so catchy
And your main goal is to save your mother... how heartbreaking is that ?! :)

But less get on review;

+Beautiful graphic and animation, so damn cute you will love it
+Great music, you will bounce your leg in rythim from first minute
+Couple of playable baby dinos with a lot of skins
+Awesome levels

-No tutorial, so check out controls to find out all about buttons

Game runs smooth, non glitches or bugs noticed.
Altough it's cute you will need skills to master it.

Now go out there and save your mother, fly on giant mosquitos, ride turtles... kill 10x bigger dinos, eat cavemen....
but most important HAVE FUN !

Graphic 8/10
Music 9/10
Gameplay 7/10

Recommender to all platformer lovers

Iggy's Egg Adventure is a homage to platformers from the late 80's and 90's. Keeps things simple, doesn't stop it from being fun.
Contains around 18 levels and 6 different worlds, all themed differently and introducing new enemies and hazards. Levels can be played in either standard or time trial modes and each world ended with a boss fight. Standard modes holds egg pickups that can be used for unlocking new characters and skins. Time trial awards gold, silver or bronze medals rather then global leaderboards, picking up eggs during these runs reduces the time on the clock.

Game runs on the unreal engine supporting screen resolutions of 4k+, combine that with clean aesthetics and it looks quite beautiful. Both gamepad and keyboard controls were responsive but unfortunately could not be remapped. Biggest flaw is probably the length, outside of time trial modes there is no reason to return once complete. Depending on skill level that should take around 3-5hrs. Overall it's recommended for fans of classic platformers with some modern flair, certainly worth picking up on sale. Cheers.

It is not a bad game. If you like platformers, you will definitely get some enjoyment out of it. You can see what the devs tried to do, and by what games they were inspired. You can definitely feel the fun they had when developing this. The execution may lack here and there. But overall it's a decent indie platformer, and definitely worth the discounted price right now.


* 21:9 support (always love when an indie dev does, what many AAA devs are too lazy to do).
* Speed-button like in Super Meat Boy allows for some nice platforming.
* Good open level design (reminds me a little bit of Sonic).
* Decent enemy variety.
* Not too easy.


* Controls are flawed. For instance, if you move only slightly in one direction when jumping, you will go on to move in that direction, even if you let go off the analog stick. That is unnecessary and makes the otherwise great platforming annoying, because you will end up doing something you didn't want to do (and maybe die because of that). This really takes some getting used to, and the devs should think about changing it. It is my main argument against the game.
* Combat is not that great, but alright.
* Graphics are mediocre, stiff animations.

Very well polished platformer. Perfect for Mario and Donkey Kong fans. Some of the boss fights really require out of the box thinking and strong platforming and reflexes. Not too long (about 18 levels), beat storyline in about 8 or 9 hours and have yet to do the time trials.

Does dinosaurs and platform games go well together? Yes, Iggy's Egg Adventure shows that's possible.

The story is very similiar to almost any platform game released, but it works. Iggy's mom has been captured, and it's up to Iggy to get her back. Along the way he will also have to collect eggs that were stolen alongside his mom.

If you've played platform games before, Iggy's Egg Adventure won't be very different. You move through a level filled with hazards (cavemen, other dinosaurs, tar pits to name a few) in order to reach the goal. On each level there are large eggs that can be found which you can buy more characters, and even costumes with. In the last level of every world, you will fight a boss which require a specific strategy to be defeated. This makes for an interesting experience.

The music in the game, is upbeat and nice to listen to. Each world has it's own theme which all fit the respective location.

Unfortunately, i noticed a big issue with the game. The controls cannot be rebound, and while i myself got used to the controls after a while, others might find it clunky to play the game with the default controls.

In conclusion, Iggy's Egg Adventure is a fun experience. It might not be the most unique platformer ever, but it certainly won't disappoint you.

Final score 8/10.

I have to admit, i was expecting this to be an extremely easy and simple kid's game. But dang was i wrong.

This is an excellent little platformer. Surprising amount of polish, challenging but not stupidly so, great boss designs and just enough collectibles to make you replay levels without it turning into a grind. It brings me back to the golden days of platformers, with a really good "Donkey Kong Country"-esque vibe to it. And as a bonus, it's FREAKING ADORABLE.

I only wish more folks would buy it, so that i could get the darn steam badge.

Iggy's Egg Adventure is a charming platformer.
The characters are adorable and the world is cute. The game's controls are tight, which keep it from being frustrating when dying.

It's a very simple concept, and feels a lot like old platformers you used to play in the old days. However, it feels more modern with the nicer graphics, and physics based ragdolls.

Collecting items in this game has an actual driving purpose behind it. The collectibles are giant eggs that allow you to purchase new characters that play differently, and skins for them.

Overall it's a simple game. It doesn't do anything original necessarily, but is still very fun!

Iggy’s mother has been kidnapped by cavemen. Five baby dinosaurs will go on an adorably murderous rampage to get her back.

In my review of Bad Rats, I made the bold claim that there was a 6/10 game hiding beneath the surface if only the controls and the art direction weren’t so abysmal. I wasn’t joking, and Iggy’s Egg Adventure is proof of it.

Like Bad Rats, this is very clearly the work of amateur developers. It has a handful of minor problems such as:
  • Glitching ragdoll physics,
  • Alt-Tab glitches,
  • Clunky, poorly-implemented menus,
  • Stiff-looking character animations with virtually no transition animations at all,
  • Missing sound / tactile effects for many events which feel like they should have them,
  • Unfairly tiny pickups which are very hard to grab and also lack contrast against the stage background,
  • Stage design that’s astonishingly poor at conveying which pits are passages and which are instant death.
It even has the awkward and surprisingly irreverent gore of Bad Rats, as murdering human beings in a cloud of blood (by jumping on their heads, no less!) becomes commonplace since the very first level.

So, why am I giving the game a thumbs-up? Because it was ridiculously fun. I loved zooming around as a baby raptor, snagging eggs out of the air and slicing through enemies. The controls closely resemble the precise floatyness of Super Meat Boy, and with a little practice you can pull off seriously skillful tricks. The game’s problems are mostly easy to ignore and don’t affect gameplay; I never felt like I died because of a glitch or because of bad controls. This is perhaps the single most important thing the game could have gotten right, and it did! Besides that, the worlds are pleasant to look at, the music is very decent (if not a little forgettable) and the characters themselves are too adorable for their own good.

There are actually four other playable characters in this game besides Agumon Iggy, each with a different playstyle that becomes beneficial in different levels. Phredric is like Iggy, but swaps out his charge attack for a long-range projectile, which becomes very useful when speed isn’t needed. And then there’s the best character, Terry, who sacrifices the ability to run for the ability to double-jump, glide, and air-lunge. Under the right circumstances, you can use him to soar over the whole level much like Plague Knight. Terry makes this game a blast once you get to know what he can do.

The other two characters I found badly balanced and useless: Perry swaps out the lunge attack for some invincibility frames, but all the other characters are invincible anyway while performing their special moves, so it’s mostly a downgrade. Patrick gets a long-range headbutt while standing on the ground, but it’s too slow and not flexible enough to compete with just spamming charge attacks with Iggy or Terry. But two dud characters out of five isn’t bad at all when the other three provide such a useful and interesting change to the gameplay.

Iggy’s Egg Adventure gets a 6.5 / 10 from me. Though the game is very rough around the edges and clearly an amateur work, I can’t not like it. The dinosaurs are too adorable and I had too much fun. Despite its problems, it focused on what mattered the most, and stands as a solid, fast-paced platformer with decent length and challenge. It definitely should have gotten more attention than it did.

(Achievement Hunters: It’s about 15-20 hours to 100%, and with some rare achievements, too! The last achievement is a bit on the ridiculous side, but if you stick it out, you'll find that it’s a bit easier than the “boy” achievements in Super Meat Boy. Practice, get a handle on the Terry character, and have a quick finger on the escape key, and a full-game no-death run is very doable.)

Iggy's Egg Adventure is an absolutely amazing platformer. Dare I say, it's one of the best I have ever played, and that's coming from someone who spent the majority of their childhood devoted to platforming games.

The controls are incredibly precise, with pressure-varied jumps and zero "floatiness". The level designs are both beautiful and interesting, with nothing feeling like it's copy-pasted. Many levels have several floors and routes available to reach the end of the level, many of which vary in difficulty. You gain extra lives for every 100 small eggs you collect, and for the large eggs hidden throughout all of the levels, you can unlock different dinos and costumes.

I only have one gripe about this game: the T-Rex chase level. This level took me HOURS to collect all 5 large eggs and finish, but when I finally did, I felt a huge amount of relief and accomplishment.

So please, if you enjoy platformers at all then purchase this game, at full price even! It is well worth it, and these devs should be compensated for their labour so that they can bring us more games like this.

I really love this game! Definitely the cutest dinosaur game I've ever played! All of the character are so adorable and unique, and every level is different and very well put together. It gets difficult later on as well, but that's what makes it more fun. It's a very challenging game, don't let the cuteness fool you! I can really see all of the work you guys put into it! Simply amazing. This game has given me hours of enjoyment. ♥

I have briefly given this game a try and enjoyed it a lot. It is a classic platformer with some excellent ideas and some of the nicest graphics I've seen for this type of game. If you liked the classics you will like this it contains some problem solving, requires slick game pad control but once you learn the basics its fun ... Recommended

Product received for free
Iggy's Egg Adventure

DISCLAIMER: I received this product for no cost for the purpose of reviewing. However, this does not affect my views and opinions of the game.

Iggy's Egg Adventure is side-scrolling platformer where you play as a little dinosaur named Iggy. You try to collect eggs as you progress through each stage. The eggs you collect contribute to your score for that level, though there are other eggs hidden in each stage that are used as currency that let buy skins for Iggy. The game reminds me of other platformers with similar mechanics and of course gets progressively more difficult as you play.


Graphics: 6 / 10

The graphics are very standard, but aren't bad. They get the job done and do convey the theme of the game well. The game looks 3D though I feel like I might have enjoyed the graphic style more if it was 2D (or even pixel-style). It has this sort of childish cartoon-y style going for it and I know there are some people out there who do enjoy this style. The game isn't too demanding on my PC, in fact I believe it would run fine on a lower tier graphics card and CPU.


Sound: 6 / 10

The sound effects aren't bad, but I don't feel like they're anything special. The music in the game however isn't too shabby. It reminds me of those jungle-y vibes and themes you'd get if you played any of the older Donkey Kong games. The music wasn't bothersome or repetitive and fit the theme of the game pretty well.


Mechanics: 6 / 10

The mechanics are also very standard for a platforming game. You can jump, run, and have two little attacks that you can do. One attack is just a straight up bite to hit what's in front of you, and the other is a kind of dash that kills your enemies if they get in the way. All these mechanics are used in someway to bypass different obstacles that you'll encounter while playing the game. The game does get progressively more difficult as you complete each stage and timing your abilities properly is important in overcoming these challenges.

Enemies will change from time to time though generally die in the same way. The environmental hazards also play a role within the game, as there will be spikes, lava, and other terrain that you'll have to watch out for. When Iggy takes damage you lose one health. This health is represented by pieces of cooked meat. You can restore health by picking up cooked meat laying about the stage or by killing enemies who will sometimes drop meat on death. You have five health points before you have to restart the stage.

While traversing through each level you pick up eggs along the way. The small eggs you pick up are counted towards your score at the end of the stage, and is used if you wanna compare best times/ best score with yourself, as each level is repayable. The big eggs you find are currency, and there are only five of them hidden within each stage. After you find the big eggs in a stage, you can no longer get it again, even if you replay the level. These currency eggs are used to buy skins for your character in the game menu. You can switch through the skins you unlock and use the one you like the most.


Final Personal Remarks:

The game is a standard platformer. It doesn't mean it's a bad game. The game also offers speed-running capabilities as there are timers on each level. The game's art-style makes it look like the game was intended for children, though when you kill enemies via biting them or jumping on them, you do see this sort of misty blood effect happen. I bring it up because it just seemed a bit funny to me. If you have an itch to play a platforming game with decent graphics and competent mechanics, you can give Iggy's Egg Adventure a bash.

Thanks to the Devs for giving me the opportunity to review the game, as well as anyone who took this review into consideration, I hope it helped.

You're a baby raptor.
Your mom has been kidnapped by hungry (literally, not sexually... probably) cavemen .
She will become an egg-breeding machine, unless you stop them and whoever else who's willing to give her the eggs!

Prove how loyal of a baby to your mom, you truly are!
Take on the adventure! Starve the cavemen. Kick them where it hurts the most. In the nutsy balls!
Or suffer an ultimate guilt for letting your mom work as an omelette-making machine!

Will you save your mom?
Or will you make her regret not kicking you off the cliff with your brown diapers, when she had the first chance?
Will you make her regret not leaving you to the hungry T-Rex that ate her husband when hunting for dinner.. for you?
Will you sadden her even more, reminding her of the chance she had to leave you to sea-beasts? That very day when your grandparents sacrificed themselves to fill the hunger of the beasts so they would let you go.

That my friends, is the ultimate choice each one of you will make!

Iggy's egg adventure is a platforming game where you (a raptor named iggy) is on a quest to save his mother from cavemen.

-There was more than just iggy to play as, there are numerous characters each with their own unique skins.
(my personal fav being feathered iggy.)

-The art style of this game is adorable (dont fall for that though) and the environments are lively and colourful.

-Not only do you see dinosaurs in this game but you also see other prehistoric creatures like saber tooth cats. i rode a mammoth for darwins sake! :D

-there are alot of memorable moments of fast paced gameplay and boss fights, seriously they were really fun and surprising. from giant scorpions to a frickin mosasaur there were undoubtably many moments that define this games special premise of action.

-there are alot of worlds and levels within them each with their own unique setup of animals and scenery along with a given challenge ofcourse.

all these aspects made this game immpossible to get boring. If your like me and you appreciate alot of scenery etc.) so if you like dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures or if you like platformers then this games got alot to offer with it's wide and constant variety of fun. I highly recommend it. :)

I didn't like the controls. To control where Iggy lands in a running jump, it's a matter of when you press or release the run button, not a matter of pressing or releasing left or right.

In a platformer, the controls need to feel good and intuitive, and these don't feel good or intuitive to me.
