Snailboy: Rise of Hermitron is a gorgeous RPG platformer, soft-launching in a fortnight
Snailboy: Rise of Hermitron made sound like a weird Transformers knock-off, but it's quite a pretty instalment in the Snailboy franchise, and it'll be soft-launching in about a fortnight.



The first in the series, Snailboy: An Epic Adventure, was released three years ago and finally we've got Snailboy's next epic adventure within reach. The shell-obsessed snail has to help his new oceanic buddies to reclaim their world as he gets deep into the gorgeous marine wonderland.

It won't be easy however as the evil hermit crab Hermitron, and his sidekick Harold the barnacle, are determined to keep a grip on their conquered territories.

With 25 levels to sling, slick, and swim your way through it's shaping up to be an excellent addition for the mobile gamer's library. Use your super abilities, collect awesome power-ups, find secret caves (and super-secret treasures), earn achievement badges, and save the Coral Kingdom with style.

Though there's no release date just yet, Snailboy: Rise of Hermitron will be soft-launching in Ireland, Canada, and South Africa in a couple of weeks, so stay tuned.
