Snail Bob

Poor Bob loses his home when a construction site demolishes the area. The rest of the game involves maneuvering Bob through the construction using different types of tools included within the setting, with the ultimate goal of finding him a new home.

The starting point of each level is a pipe from which Bob emerges. An exit pipe marks where you reach the next level. Levels increase in difficulty (with twenty levels in total). For example, to aid Bob in his journey, you must click switches to raise levers and click buttons to launch Bob from their platforms. You are also in charge of Snail Bob’s speed, which can be adjusted by clicking icons with number one or two in the corner (one for a slower, two for a fast-paced) or by using the associated number keys on your keyboard.

Whatever pace you choose is best for you, your main goal is to get Bob to the exit without falling to his death, or being crushed/injured by some random falling piece of equipment or gear.

As you play the game, the tools quickly become varied and more complex. You soon encounter spinning platforms that change Bob’s direction entirely and even electricity panels. The game requires creative but rational thinking to figure out how to use the tools to get Bob exactly where he needs to be to continue on his journey.

It can be frustrating when you hit a dead-end and can’t solve the puzzle, but generally, a step back, a little breather, and a clear mind can resolve the issue. After completing the twentieth level, it means Bob has found a new home.

While many games have this same “tool” mechanism, Snail Bob is charmingly animated and has an originality that seems to pull fans from out of the woodworks. The fact that Bob has eight separate games/episodes attests to his popularity.
