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%!

Ok, not great - and a bug

The game: it's not going to be great by any means, and it can be a bit tedious, but it's ok. Reminiscent of games such as the original Zelda... except that instead of a conquering hero, you're a snail.
A nail that can jump, run, walk on walls and the ceiling, and destroy opponents with a variety of weaponry.

I was playing through this, making slow progress... but twice now when I go to the game it loads me at the save point outside the first boss. Both times I beat the second boss, explored vast areas, had three weapons, collected items and so on... and found all that progress had disappeared.

Obviously that's very frustrating; I'm not going to bother trying again. Would be nice if the bug was fixed though. I'm using Google Chrome on Windows.

auriplane responds:

You probably don't have enough space allowed for Newgrounds to save in, so it saved before, but as the file grew larger, it hit the limit (shared with other NG games). It's not a bug. You need to allow more space.

I'm at the stage with the box guy

I can't beat it, i been trying for 30 mins so thats way to hard. Also the aiming is sort of messed up with side ones when moving. 8/10
