RULEZ
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The goal of the game it's to make snails complete some races.

Snails starts at 0 and end a race at 14+.

If a snails reach 14+ with your card, then you get one "Finish" point and X
"Speed" point where X is the final value of the snail [let's say you play a
card and a snail reach 16, then you get one "Finish" point and 16 "Speed"
point].

Each players start with eight card and draw a card at the end of each of his
turns [if the deck is not exausted].

On each turn players must play one and only one card.

Colored card can only be played on the snail of the same color.
Black card can be played on whatever snail you like.

When a player plays a card on a snail it moves forward [or backward in the
case of black card] of a number equals to the card value [let's say that the red
snail is at 4 and you play a red 2, then the snail runs at 6].

The winner is the player with most "Finish" point, on draw the winner is the
player with most "Speed" point, on draw ... the game is a DRAW! 8)) .

Enjoy!

hear the victory sound etc.]. You can skip them with any key [stylus or
buttons, also the d-pad]. Also the splash screen, the credits and the results

Ok, now that you know all the good thing about the game let me tell you a
secret.
If you like to change the theme of the game you can modify the image in the
SnailRace directory.
Just select a new theme [let's say ... ROBORACE] and redraw all the image in
the files.
Be aware to not modify the name or the location of the file or the game will
freeze!
