Bob has been through a lot lately and yet, fine fellow he is, it hasn't slowed him down one bit. He just keeps moseying along, straight ahead, not a care in the world. Whether he's in a goo-strewn construction site, on a path to visit grandpa or traversing desert dunes here in Snail Bob 3, Bob continues straight on ahead until he reaches his goal—or meets his untimely demise. So it's on your shoulders to keep him from being fried, pummeled, or otherwise rendered not doing so well.
At first, as Bob inches along at a, well, snail's pace, you'll find your task simple in this platform puzzle game from Hunter Hamster. Through just a few clicks of a few buttons, you can remove obstacles or otherwise create a safe path for Bob to travel; you'll probably even have enough time to spot and grab the three somewhat hidden stars in each scene. But, as with life, things don't stay so simple. During the 25 levels, you'll encounter new hazards and added features to help you overcome those hazards, along with witty planning, quick timing and a touch of physics. It helps that you can click on Bob to stop him when needed, though, and the game interface makes the whole experience more relaxing coffee break entertainment than perilous quest to save a gastropod stuck in ancient Egypt. And, trust me, you don't want to be a snaily type in a place like this: hot sun everywhere, camels stomping about and, ugh, think of where that sand is sticking. So, please, save Bob!
