    Snail Mail is out!

    [Lite edition, free]

    Tho I put an explanation point in the first sentence here it does not mean, in any way, that I was expecting the game or even that I've already played before, ever...

    But as a new title I was curious about.

    I've found a YouTube video from the PC version (quite annoying) and I decided to get it since it is just $1.99 (at least initially).

    First the game made me reboot my 2.2 iPhone (I thought 2.2 fixed this kind of thing...).

    OK. After that a nice surprise. An arcade alike race/action game with a simply perfect tilt control (touch is available) with nice graphics and sound.

    There are game modes and the main one (50 levels) does NOT make you start in level 1 every time you want to play it (nice!).

    Considering I'm an enthusiast and casual iPhone gamer I'd say that's a game you should consider seriously. For now there's no lite version but I'm sure it'd help their sales.

    Finally, the AppStore screenshots does not reflect the game quality IMO.

    I hope some of you enjoy the game! :)

    8 Levels so far and each of them something different... Fast and smooth! And the tilt control (yet again) is just PERFECT!

    You guys are really making me want to buy this game but I've spent way too much on apps the past few months and I'm trying to cut down by a lot.

    You're not helping! I want that app! :eek::eek::eek:

    :(

    You spent the money for the wrong games.
    THIS is going to be an instant classic.
    At least on my iPhone...

    One of the best games I've purchased so far. A lot of fun! And it's fast and smooth (professionally done).

    Finally, the introductory price is more than reasonable for such game production.

    Dammit, people. I going to have to buy this now.

    Actually I was going to start a thread before I saw this. It looks good.

    BTW, istopmotion, I added you on Aurora Feint too.

    I came in to post and tell you all about it!

    I got this earlier today and came in to tell you all about it. What a hoot! I'm just a casual gamer (OK very casual and not very good gamer) for "racing" type games. This is very playable for me so far and heaps of fun. I love the way he wriggles to warm up. The racing is excellent so far, even using the tilt controls (which you can change to touch controls in the options/settings). I also like the Star Wars style introduction when you start the game. Very nice! Lots of humour sprinkled in here and there and the background and track give you a real sense of speed as you go along.
     
  14. Is he cuter than the Rocket Snails

    I'm glad I bought it. This kind of game if perfect for the iPhone and Touch.

    It'd be worth the full price too.
