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:

xdanond, for drawing some stuff!

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

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%!

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

Fun, adventurous and a ture platformer!

None of this "I'm a platformer wanna-be" stuff, this is a true classic-style platforming game with the hint of RPG that makes it less repetitive than it would be. Also, I love the hidden secrets here and there, and still have not found out how many Helix Fragmants Isis needs.

(+Did you code it alone?)

-A little bit too easy ;-)

As you can see everything is perfect. I'm waiting for Snailiad 2! Thanks to this game I'm learning now Flixel to make a game! ;-D

Ps: You're a genius.

Hey, I saw your flipnote! It was awesome XD Good luck making your game, and make sure to check out the Flixel forums if you have any problems! Yeah, I coded it alone. (I've been programming all my life, and professionally since 2000.) I'll try to make the next game (optionally) more challenging!
