Physics Platformer Snailboy Launches Onto Samsung Apps

Indie developer Thoopid’s award winning physics platformer Snailboy is finally making its way to Android. Previously only available on iOS, Snailboy will be coming to Google Play soon but first its making an early appearance on the Samsung Apps store courtesy of Samsung’s %100 indie initiative. If you have a newer Samsung device like the Galaxy S 3 or 4 that can handle Snailboy‘s jaw dropping console quality graphics though you’ll want to check out this intuitive action adventure game right away.

It’s been a few months since we did our hands on preview of Snailboy and I can happily report that Thoopid’s rambunctious pet mollusk is back and even better than ever. This beautiful platformer uses a highly advanced version of the graphical pre-rendering technique popularized by the SNES classic Donkey Kong Country to achieve its startlingly good graphics and it’s usually the first thing people notice about Snailboy. However in addition to its good looks, Snailboy also has intuitively designed gameplay mechanics that feel like a marriage of Super Mario Bros. and Angry Birds.
