    I only want to buy one of them, so which do you all think is the better game? I like the graohics on both of the video reviews I have seen, but which is more fun and interesting to play?

    Snail mail

    WOW! VEktrax is the bigges crap I have ever downloaded for 99 cents. I had no fun out of this game at all, you basically press the touchscrren and tilt, thats it.
    Snail mail looks prettygood and has at least some gameplay value.

    P.S: GET SNAIL MAIL!!!!!!!! SERIOUSLY!

    Snail Mail is really cool. Some great graphics and nice gameplay/controls. It reminds me a bit of Sonic games in many ways.

    Vektrax is quite cool, not as graphically impressive as Snail mail, but still cool. Decent controls (although boost is annoying).

    Overall, i'd recommend Snail Mail, its the better game! :cool:

    i been playing snail mail alot last few days

    The game modes are

    Tutorial
    Postal Adventure
    Time Trial
    challenge Mode

    The snail talks alot, says things when you fall and start the game and as you play
    Always has something witty to say

    Its really fast paced, you can play with the accelerometer or with your finger controlling

    I feel using the finger is way more accurate

    I feel like I am on a skateboard going downhill, or skiing
    you go up huge and small loops and half pikes and go off of alot of jumps

    its non stop speeding and as you go you have to run over and pick up packages while shooting, jumping, avoiding things.

    you shoot guns that you upgrade as you play
    you have to go off jumps and go thru glowing moving circles and you upgrade the weapon you shoot. I eventually got like a force shield around me glowing yellow.

    but its really fast paced though, thats what I like about it. reminds me of rainbow road on mario kart trying not to fall off the edges

    i would go with Snail mail if you are looking for a game that will ghold your attention for a long time. Vektrax is a fun game for 99 cents, but in the end, there is a reason it costs that amount. It will hold your attention for short intervals, but if you are looking for long term, Snail mail is the way to go. it's cute, well done, and a lot of fun.

    i bought snail mail and it seems to be fun even if i only played for 15 mins yet......but vektrax is a good game in its own right.

    very retro, entertaining and cheap......i never regretted the purchase and if you want to blast through some enemies in a 5 min break, its the perfect game.

    How dare you, Vektrax is very good if you get into it. It lacks in content and audio but it's still good and especially considering some other 99 cent purchases.

    At it's current price I recommend Snail MAil though because of its content and overall build I guess :p
