Arrow keys to move
Z to jump
X to shoot a weapon

ABOUT THE GAME
=========================
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!

ABOUT SAVE DATA
=========================
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

FINDING 100% ITEMS
=========================
Once you defeat the final boss, you unlock the "radar"! The radar tells you how many items are left in the current area.

HIDDEN MODE
=========================
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.

TROUBLESHOOTING
=========================
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%!

frustrating

Decent game for the most part. The space box is a 1000 times harder than the other 2 bosses though especially since the gravity jump mechanic sucks in the first place. When ever you have something where you must hold multiple keys, they don't always register. Either I jump into the guy as I'm leaving, or I jump with him so I get uber fucked and take 999999999999999 damage because he spawn camps me and follows where I jump.

You also shouldn't make a boss that gets into tampon PMS mode at the final tits of the fight. He's hard enough already then he turns into a woman and throws fucking cubes, moves faster and you can't hit him with the rock shield. I die 50 times trying to get there and then the jump mechanic makes me go straight into him where he then spawns 4 cubes that are unavoidable and everything moves faster than diarrhea after eating taco bell.

Mostly just the gravity jump is the problem. A lot of things require specific precision jumps which is bs in a flash game for starters, but then when you have to press like 4 keys to jump and be quick and precise about it while also dodging other things it's over the line.


auriplane responds:

Every keyboard has different lockout combinations, and your keyboard happens to disallow certain combos that most don't--that's why the controls are configurable. Nice bizarre misogynistic rant, BTW.

Nice Metroid style game. Can't really give a long, flowery speech on why it's good. It just is. That's the way these things go sometimes.
