Polished and perfect
Polished graphics, nice songs, very fun gameplay... I loved playing this game! Maybe the first few jumps aren't very exciting, but when you start going at a speed of 400 and watching everything fly by on your screen, leaving exploding ice debris behind you.... You can't help but have fun!
+ nice mechanics
+ various flying styles and combinations
+ Nice use of graphic effects
+ Humorous cut scenes and text
- could do with more things to destroy
I really wish people didn't give 10 stars to nearly every game they play, because when that rare, fun, game really DOES deserve 10 it doesn't seem as big of a deal.
First 10 / 10 star rating I've given to a game and I don't intend to give these out often.
Interesting idea, but not enough gameplay value
An interesting enough idea, but the game play leaves something to be had.
The customization of a giant rampaging monster is cool and all, but it doesn't mean much if there isn't a great deal to do with it. With the limited amount of energy (even after bringing it up quite high) and simplicity of the game, the player doesn't have much to keep them going other than making a cool hybrid... thing. And although there is an attempt made to rid the game of repetitiveness, it seems to get boring rather quickly.
+fun idea, having a giant crazy hybrid wreck havoc
+comic book style graphics are nice along with the music
+being the badguy is always a fun twist
- somewhat repetitive, even with customizations
- without energy, the player can't really do much. Changing a monster's direction is only so much fun...
Decent. The creators of this obviously were not lazy with this. Could work out with some tweaking and added control/interaction. 5 / 10
a great new oldschool game
I love how Snailad brings some oldshool nes style graphics and sound to the table. For that reason, the graphics and sound are somewhat bland, but mix together well and really remind players of those good-ol days! The game provides a nice long-lasting experience with a balanced learning curve as Snaily world is explored.... and boy does it take some exploring. I still can't find the last piece of that dang shell. Where de heck ARE YOU!?
My personal experience:
+Weeapons become fun to blast everything with
+Upgrades keep the game going throughout
+lots of stuff to do besides just 'beat it'
+Only found one single glitch at the shrine of isis (I flew off into space... it was fun till I died lol.)
-Sometimes a pain in the butt to hug every single wall looking for secret openings
-Gravity shell controls can get a little nuts
All in all, Snailad is fun, long lasting, challenging and cute. 8/10
