Egg, Inc., like all games, has its share of glitches. Here are some.

Major Glitch

A major glitch is one that either involves: major data losses, corruption, loss of real money, serious crashes, or game-breaking flaws.

  • Display is corrupted: Very rarely, the display may be glitched, resulting in models failing to load properly and displaying holes and missing parts, rendering the game nearly unplayable. This also causes the background while on the menu to be horribly glitched and may flash black or white until the menu is closed. Rarely, the screen may still flash colors even when you are out of the menu. Even more rarely, the entire world will turn into a black void, leaving only delivery vehicles, chickens, and drones in the light.
    • FIX: Unknown at this time. FIX for flashing issue: Go into another menu and go out again.
    • Likely cause: Hardware, GPU related.
  • Prestige infinitely: This glitch is very abusable, and it allows you to effectively get infinite profit, similar to the (now-patched) Sushi Bar glitch in Tiny Tower. To perform this glitch, go into the Prestige menu, hit the prompts to prestige, and after you hit yes, instantly kill the app. If done correctly, you should return to the app to find your Soul Eggs increased and farm preserved. Because the Soul Eggs in "stock" are still there, you can repeat and profit!
    • There is a 1/36,000 chance that your save file will be permanently corrupted, if you terminate the app at the exact frame it is uploading the save file to the cloud. Please be very careful with this glitch.

Minor Glitches

A minor glitch is a major glitch except the effect can be reversed or fixed, as well as less severe occurrences.

  • Ads will 'mock' you offline: If you are not on a connection, the ads notifications will still pop up, but the Watch button, when clicked, will just make the prompt disappear.
    • FIX: Get on a connection and restart the app.
    • Likely cause: The ad notification will still appear, but no WiFi triggers an error.
  • Ads may crash: Rarely, an ad may crash the game, not giving you the reward.
    • FIX: None, but rare.
    • Likely cause: 3rd party ads have internal glitches, not Egg, Inc.
  • Side reward buttons are hard to click: The buttons that appear on the side have a small click radius and do not respond often.
    • FIX: Keep clicking, harder with larger fingers.
    • Likely cause: Size of the buttons are set too small, especially becomes a problem with larger hands.
  • Holding a greyed-out button crashes the game: This is uncommon, but when you hold a greyed-out button, sometimes the game may crash.
    • FIX: Don't hold a greyed-out button.
    • Likely cause: Possible buffer overflow, a serious memory problem, causing the game to terminate.
  • Chicken Producer: If you hold the chicken button, click on anything that will pull up a menu while still holding the button, and release once it's open, chickens will continue to produce until the hatchery is empty, then you must click the button again to allow it to refill. Note: This only works if the original button was large and the place that you held was off the small button. This glitch is beneficial, take advantage of it.
    • Likely cause: The game is unable to detect if the button is released, because a menu makes the button smaller, but lifting your finger off the side of the button does not tell the game this.
  • Chicken Producer Extreme: When using the above chicken producer glitch, get your running chicken multiplier up to max and then press the boost button. Make sure the chickens are still running while you are on the boost screen, then initiate the "Warp 1 Hour" or "Warp 8 Hours" boost. The game will temporarily treat your post-multiplier rate of income as your baseline rate of income, thus allowing you to compound your income with an additional multiplier if you hold the button again. This means the Epic Hatchery upgrade (to increase hatchery refill rate) is more valuable than you may previously have thought. Through experimentation, it seems you cannot reproduce this glitch to get a third multiplier and after a small amount of time (from a few seconds to a few minutes) no matter what you do the baseline income will reset to normal. Regardless, if you are planning to fast forward time anyway, it is a good idea to utilize this glitch. This glitch is beneficial, take advantage of it.
    • Likely cause: Algorithm that calculates how much money you earn on warp is flawed.
  • Video Doubler: If you set the system's date or time forward, then watch a video for the video doubler and set your date or time back to the real date, you will have a large number of hours. This glitch is beneficial, take advantage of it.
    • Likely cause: The game is synced to the system time, therefore allowing it to have full control of the mechanisms.
    • Attention! You must be extremely careful with these instructions. Not doing so could cause serious problems with your game, possibly permanent corruption!
  • Unlimited For 30 Seconds: If you set the system's date or time forward, inspired by Video Doubler Glitch, then use the boost for Unlimited chickens from Hatchery for 30 Seconds and set your date or time back to the real date, you will have a large number of hours.This glitch is beneficial, take advantage of it.
    • Likely cause: The game is synced to the system time, therefore allowing it to have full control of the mechanisms.
    • Attention! You must be extremely careful with these instructions. Not doing so could cause serious problems with your game, possibly permanent corruption!
  • Box UI Off-Screen: If you tap a box while it is being tossed out of the vehicle, the pop-up explaining your rewards from the box will go up and partly off the top of the screen.
    FIX: Don't try to tap buttons that are barely visible on the right side of the screen.
    • Likely cause: Bad positioning algorithm.
  • Other UI Off-Screen: When you are upgrading or purchasing habitats or vehicles, you can tap to buy or upgrade one slot but then instead of doing so you can tap on the far left side of your screen to buy or upgrade a different slot instead. This will result in the UI moving mostly off-screen to the left, and you will have to press an X to restore the UI to normal.
    FIX: Don't try to tap buttons that are barely visible on the left side of the screen.
    • Likely cause: ?
  • Egg Upgrade Crash: If you hit the Upgrade Egg button several times quickly, the game will crash.
    • Likely cause: Buffer overflow.
  • Black Text: In rare cases, the names of the housing in the housing menu will turn into an infinite rectangle, going off the screen if the upgrade box is opened.

Annoyances

Annoyances can be graphical errors or spelling errors. They only affect you if you have OCD.

  • "World" is too small: If you scroll out far enough, you will see the edge of the grass and a black void.
  • Drones defy physics: If you take down a drone, it can fall through all 3D objects, save for the grass. This may also happen with tall buildings like the Center.
  • New Invisibilty Egg: The egg in the upper left corner may disappear for the whole game.
