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!

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

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.

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%!

Save the snails

When I seen 8 bit I got reminded of how to raise a dragon, I played this on kongregate and don't really feel like going through it again on newgrounds, but the game is fun and the medals are worth it.

I played through everysingle bt of this game. I found everything a part from Snelk room A. I've played through this game 3 times now. Yes it is good enough to play through three times. The whole concept is amazing. The music can lighten anyones day and each piece of music used worked perfectley for each part. I cannot thank you enough for making this game. This game is a cure, a cure for boredom.

No bs of partialy complete and/or being way to short. Absolutely loved this game. Really took me back to the old NES game ie dungeons and magic, FFI, zelda, link, and castlevania. Im telling ya man absolute genius title. Cant wait to see more. I wil problty crusified cuz of this statement but in my opinion way better than alien homonid. wow botched that spelling their but oh well.

I didnt think i would ever find the snelk site a. if it wasnt for the fact of random chance of using my gravity ability to just fly through the area i would of nvr found it. Oh! and that dam secret boomerrang. wouldnt of found it if it wasnt the fact that i was slowing combing the area around the home very slowing and i just happened to jump to get onto the wall and poof i was in the wall. at first i thopught i had glitched it.
