iPhone Game of the Week: Egg Punch
Many a first date has taken place on the rich green AstroTurf of the mini-golf course. There's just something about those Dutch-style windmills and a challenging round of 16 holes that ignites the sparks of love, ya know? Egg Punch allows you to re-live those youthful moments of hormonal imbalance without the thing that made them lame (ie your awful date Suzy Neworth, who said she didn't really like Harry Potter. What kind of person doesn't like Harry Potter?!).

The Down-low: Just in time for Easter, Egg Punch is a silly, light-hearted game starring the holiday’s favorite mascots, a giant mischievous bunny and bird in a tiny egg.
Using the egg-as-golf-ball, guide your little breakfast option through a series of complex courses involving piping, sharp corners, hills, dips and—you guessed it—windmills. Gather feathers along the way to earn points and unlock new levels. Why feathers? I don’t know, maybe they’re just into Ke$ha. Go with it.
The best part of this game—aside from the convenient guide that helps you aim at your target direction—are the vibrant graphics and brilliant color scheme, which make you feel like you're right back on the links again, desperately trying to get a kiss from that Harry Potter-hating Suzy Neworth...
Yep, that memory still hurts.
DAMN YOU, SUZY NEWORTH, AND YOUR TASTE IN LITERATURE. Do you play Egg Punch? We don't, but we sure like saying the words "egg" and "punch" over and over.
