Explore Snaily World, collect new abilities and weapons, discover secret passages, and save the snails!

CONTROLS - customizable
=========================
Arrow keys to move
Z to jump
X to shoot a weapon
C to shoot a weapon (and hold still)
M for map (you can use TAB, but it won't work in IE)
ESC or P for the menu (pause)

ABOUT THE GAME
=========================
Snailiad is an 8-bit-inspired game, which uses the NES palette most of the time, and uses NES music I wrote using Famitracker. I hope you enjoy it! :-) There's some references to eight-bit classics that helped inspire Snailiad, and you might also find a cameo or two from RPG Shooter: Starwish, if you play long enough.

Big thanks to:

AdamAtomic, for Flixel!
xdanond, for drawing some stuff!
newstarshipsmell, for lots of testing!
jsr, for Famitracker!

ABOUT SAVE DATA
=========================
Starting with Flash Player 10.3, Flash save data gets DELETED if you clear cookies or browser history. If you're having trouble with saves, this list might help:
1. Don't clear your cookies or history
2. Make sure the Flash Storage Settings say "Unlimited"
3. Make sure "private browsing" is OFF
4. Make sure "clear browser history on exit" is OFF
5. Make sure "block sites from setting any data" is OFF (for Chrome users)
6. Don't run a program that deletes stuff, like CCleaner or Better Privacy

FINDING 100% ITEMS
=========================
Once you defeat the final boss, you unlock the "radar"! The radar tells you how many items are left in the current area.

HIDDEN MODE
=========================
There's a hidden mode in Snailiad! Once you've unlocked it, it will be one of the choices in "NEW GAME", below EASY and NORMAL.

TROUBLESHOOTING
=========================
If you set your browser zoom below 100%, the bottom and right sides of the game will get cut off. Please make sure your zoom is at least 100%!

Addictive!

Just can't... Stop! Best NG game i ever played.
For the ones having thouble in finding the difficult medals...
>EXPLORER: Look very well for places. there are a lot hidden. Search everywhere.
>HOMELESS: Need to Beat Slug Mode. Slug mode is unlocked after beating the game, aaaaaand you'll need to start a New game. So, New game > Slug Mode and Beat it. Slug Mode is like a hard mode of the Game - 2x damage, but you're faster and have high jump (i laughted: JUSTIN SNAILY!)
>THE GAUNTLET: Simple. Just survive. And no, SPEEDRUNNER is not for this mode. See in the next medal.
>SPEEDRUNNER: Notably the hardest medal of all. Need to beat the game within 30 minutes. in other words, you'll need to beat Moon Snail within 30 minutes. To do it, you'll need:
1) Slug Mode - Speed. That is the main. High Jump will allow you to find things earlier.
2) Avoid getting hurt.
3) Get as much Hearts as possible, but don't go back to get them.
4) After getting the Gravity Snail, rush, dash... you'll need each second as possible.
5) Don't die in the Magic Box (The boss whom spawns boxes).
6) Don't worry about Helix Fragments - JUST RUN!

If you follow this, you'll have around 10 minutes to beat Moon Snail. If you have some practice, you'll be able to beat in 5 minutes (both forms).
I got this medal in a time of around 23 minutes.
Good luck!

cool..

"Snaily, it's dangerous to go alone! Take this..." Is that perhaps a Legend of Zelda reference?
