Eggomania is a one to four player, full color game designed to be
played on the Atari(R) Video Computer System(TM) or the Sears Video
A strangely colored, feathered fowl is bent on bombing your bedeviled
blue bear with dozens of even stranger colored eggs. Your only defense
is catching those falling orbs in your hat before they break and cause
a real mess! If you succeed in catching an entire wave, you get the
delightful opportunity to get even and fire them back at that turkey !
You'll be dazzled by his reaction. So go after that bird -- if you
can "bear" the pressure. Otherwise, the yolks on you !!
1. Connect the Atari(R) Video Computer System(TM) or Sears Video
Arcade(R) following the manufacturer's instructions.
2. Install the left paddle controllers for single player or two
player game, and both left and right sets of controllers for a
three or four player game.

7. Push RESET switch at any time to start a new game.

the fire button on the joystick.

large catcher hat and small catcher hat as follows:

In multi-player games, each player may choose the hat corresponding
to his/her skill level. To do this, use the difficulty switches

and the right difficulty switch for player two;

Each egg successfully caught equals 14 to 50 points (see chart).
Each time the bird is shot with an egg, equals 100 points; plus,
if you have egg on the floor, some of it gets cleaned up.
Eggs are dropped in ten difficulty levels as follows:
Number Points Number Points
of Per of Per
Level Eggs Speed Egg Level Eggs Speed Egg
1 20 1 14 6 60 3 34
2 40 1 18 7 80 3 38
3 60 1 22 8 80 4 42
4 40 2 26 9 80 5 46
5 80 2 30 10 80 6 50
* Move your harried bear back and forth across the screen as little
as possible; if eggs are falling close to each other (in a vertical
column), position your hat under them and adjust only slightly to
* Any excessive or inefficient movement and you'll wind up with egg
on your face! (Feet, paws, and body too!)
* Try to recognize a pattern of the eggs as they fall. This will help
you anticipate where to make your next move -- -- -- -- ooops ! !
* Position the bear somewhere near the center of the screen and wait
for that turkey to pass by -- don't follow him!
* Timing and accuracy on shooting the turkey during the Eggomania
waltz is critical. Try to anticipate his next move and lead his
direction a little while shooting only when necessary -- constant
firing throws off timing and seems to make that turkey dance even
* Once you have accomplished this task, you can sit back and enjoy
bonus points and a flustered, embarrassed turkey!
