About Un Juego de Huevos Un Juego de Huevos is the first game based on the hit movie Una Pelicula de Huevos. Un Juego de Huevos is an action-adventure game that reunites all the familiar characters from the film, including Toto, Willy, Confi, Serp, Cuache and Tlacua, in an alternative storyline. This time, Confi tells what really happened in Toto's quest to become a chicken. Players take on the role of Toto or Willy, with the ability to unlock an additional secret character. The goal is to explore and battle through a series of increasingly tough challenges on the way to victory. There are 25 levels, 5 exhilarating "boss battles" and 10 unlockable competition levels. Users can play alone or with a friend, work as a team or compete against each other in race mode.

Una Pelicula de Huevos enjoyed tremendous box-office success, taking in more than 142 million pesos, with more than four million viewers, and is the second-highest grossing film in Mexico since its debut in 2006. The film received several major film awards, including the Ariel Award for Best Feature Length Animated Film, presented by the Mexican Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and considered one of the most prestigious awards in the Mexican movie industry.
