Snails Reloaded

Snails Reloaded released today by PDAmill.

It's a Worms alike game featuring 15 levels, 25 weapons and a two player hot-swap mode.

Price: $2.99.

First impressions: the game is a nice port including great graphics, animations and a proper iPhone interface. The gameplay is the same if you have already played this game in another device. In resume it's a Worms alike game where you can pick a gun, move or jump your snail, aim and set the power (touch interface) and move/jump again after the shooting. The price is more than fair and you'll have a reasonable amount of levels to try. If you like the genre it's simply worth.

Review (11Jan2009):

PROS
- Nice graphics
- Several weapons
- Easy touch controls

CONS
- Annoying music
- Slow paced gameplay (less time to move/shoot and no time to runaway after to better balance it)
- Face-to-face shots are kind of stimulated but it should be the other way around (long shots with power + wind consideration)
- Boards have too many elements and small spaces to hide which contributes to the slow paced gameplay and face-to-face shooting

A nice game but with a wrong gameplay direction IMO. 3/5




Here's a game video for Windows Mobile:

I've added a video for Windows Mobile so you can have an idea of the gameplay.

On the PDAMills site it mentions you can make custom snail types and levels. Wonder if that includes the iphone version?

Well, I bought it. I have always loved the Worms series, so this was a no-brainer. It seems as full featured as the 360 Arcade version of Worms as well, which easily makes it worth the $3.
