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%!

Nice game

But you shouldn't be able to jump not run that fast; rather be able to climb walls!

awesome fun game =)


Rated 5 / 5 stars

not sure if its me or anything

but I love the game and all, but I'm sure a few people have had a complaint about this, but it seems like 1/3 of the screen is cut off from the bottom, not sure if its supossed to be like that, and it makes it very difficult to play, I have to enjoy the full capacity of the game, so how can i fix this problem?

Maybe you could try another browser?

the secret of the secret boomerang revealed

This a fantasic And had many fun hours playing it But i have a few with it.
1.I didn't like the opening cutscene due to how poorly drawn it was(I release its supose to be a joke but still)
2.You should of placed the high jump upgrade better i ended up skipping it by accident.
3.I hated stompy's design,i think you should have made it more robotic.
Otherwise the game was great and i could easily see myself buying this on wiiware
I figured out the reason for the secret boomerang.Its for sluggy, It turns out that sluggy's jump is better than snaily's jump and here the secret to getting it early.
1.first go towards the exit of snail town(the north east side) jump over to the snail that questions about them living in treehouses(you can make the jump now that your sluggy)
3.stand above the upsidedown snail on that platform jump at the ceiling above you(its kind of tricky but you can make it)
5.once you make proceed up and you be in the same room with the turtle that talk about pizza move to the left and near the tree trunk,you should notice a cloud that is layered over the tree trunk do a strate jump up until your level with the cloud. now move left to find a secret passage you will be in the room with contra snail proceed left down to the left you will be in the room with the snail that prefers that room over a tree house go to the lower left wall and do the same type of jump from step 6 will find the room with the secret boomerang
Note you can do this right at the beginning of the game before getting the pea shooter and skipping the first boss(I still recomend you fight him so you can get the heart in the item room) also the boss goes down in seconds to the boomerang(like metal man to the metal blades fast)

I also have a tip to all the people having trouble finding the last helix fragment
1.first head to the room where you get the iron shell leave the room and blow down the wall to the left
2 1/2.if you can't go find the devastator should be in the room with/had a heart in it crawl around the the upper set of red and black blocks should find a secret passage that leads you out in to space and you will find the helix fragment you were missing

I hope these tips helped
