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:

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%!

This reminds me so much

of blaster master, when the birds started showing up I knew just how much it was like it. Good job.

Awesome Game

beat easy mode in 18 min and 46 sec (i bet somebody could beat this or already did)

Now for my review:
it's a pretty nice game, i find it to be pretty much similar to metroid. it's got nice weapons, abilities and a nice concept towards gravity.
oh, storyline's a bit nice too and the final boss is just epic.

as i said in my last review it is an awesome game. but i just accidently started a new one. i really think you should be able to have more games going on the same time. but now i am going for slug mode! oh and if there will be a nr. 2 please add a flame whip!

A REAL 10/10 game.

I loved the map completion. It was a challenge, but it requires patience and a little luck instead of reflexes and strategy. BTW I beat slug mode, but I can't beat buss rush! So frustrating! The game is fun, though, and I've played it on every difficulty.

Great Game!

Seriously tough on slug mode, but still, 10/10 and 5/5.

P.S. I'd say this game is similar to Endeavor and K.O.L.M., with it having similar power ups and abilities, not to mention the big pixels and gameplay.

P.P.S The games on top are my favorite (including yours).
