"Tastes like PAIN" XD

Take note kids: never attempt to eat poisonous animals without properly preparing them first. Especially this one.

They look so cool. I like how they're not just straight color swaps.  (I hate it when it's only a straight color swap) The fact that they have unique appearances as well as different abilities makes them that much more awesome.

I never thought I'd encounter the words 'cannibalistic snail' back to back...

Don't hate me for saying this, but the red and blue variations remind me of the original Legend of Zelda.

Even though it's basically the same piece of art flipped horizontally, I like that you distinguish between the two by changing up the shell stripes and the patterns on the frills. You probably could have gotten away with a straight palette-swap, but I'm glad you put in the extra effort.

I think it's backwards, though: Pain actually tastes like snails. Little known fact.

(Which I made up. ;) )

Wow these are gorgious!! I love snails, especially sea snails and conch shells. Conchs are actually highly aggressive animals in reality. I love the color palete for these to blend in with coral!!
