Snail Mail


It may seem weird for a snail to be featured as the main character in a racing game, but that’s exactly what Snail Mail is--a fast-paced racing game featuring a snail named Turbo as its main character. First released by Sandlot Games in 2004, the game became available on Wii and iOS in 2011.

Turbo the Snail’s goal is to successfully deliver mail through various worlds in 10 galaxies. He does this with the help of a jetpack strapped onto his back. Your goal is to guide him through these worlds, avoiding a variety of enemies and obstacles, winning challenges, and moving from one level to the next.

  • 3 modes of play
  • 50 levels in Postal Mode
  • High score tally board
  • Instant replay
  • Gorgeous 3D graphics

The game also has a multiplayer version, where players use snails of different colors to achieve the goal of delivering intergalactic mail. In both single player and multiplayer versions, you’ll find power-ups and packages to be collected in every level. These will all help you get closer to your goal.


In delivering his precious cargo, Turbo needs to travel on a galactical highway that resembles a rollercoaster track. Other than the packages that you need to collect along the way, the tracks are also littered with salt licks, slugs, and laser towers that you need to avoid. The good news is that Turbo doesn’t just have the jetpack where he keeps the mail, he also has a cannon that can be used for blasting rocks and other obstacles. There are also special rings along the way, and if you manage to pass through these rings, Turbo’s cannon is upgraded until it transforms into a powerful turret.

Analysis:

One of the most attractive attributes of Snail Mail is the straightforward gameplay. It also helps that there is a tutorial right at the get-go. The basic Postal Mode gives you the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the game and get comfortable. You may then move up one level by replaying all the tracks you manage to unlock in the Time Trial Mode. Once you’ve mastered this mode, you should be ready for the crazy tracks of the Challenge Mode.

The game controls are perhaps the most impressive elements of the game; we can only describe them as almost perfect. This is a tilting game just like all the other racing games currently available, but sliding Turbo across the tracks is so effortless that you just can’t help but be awed by the expert fine-tuning of the controls.

Snail Mail may have been buried under some big name games when it first came out, but it certainly deserves a place at the top. It is the kind of game you can enjoy in bite-sized sessions, making it perfect for when you simply want to unwind and pass the time.
