Webgame Wednesday: The Snailiad

The Iliad. With snails? Yup, that's more or less the premise behind The Snailiad. You are the epic hero Snaily Snail (OK, so it's not the most intellectual of setups), and it's your job to find the missing snails of Snail Town. Don't let the simple graphics fool you. There's quite a bit of depth to this adventure game, what with its weapons, large-scale maps, secret passages and such. Plus, you can climb up walls. Bonus!
