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%!

There's a spoiler map in my last newspost, and there's another one in the Where Is / How To forum.

good but...

as mentiond before the shell upgrade doesnt do anything

and @ awesomus devistator makes your atack bigger

auriplane responds:

The shell upgrade works fine, actually. But maybe the animation doesn't make that clear--the animation is the same, but it plays a different sound effect. I'll definitely try to think of a way to make it more obvious if I make a sequel! Thanks for the review.

An enjoyable game

I had no idea this could be so popular when the graphics don't look like that much. What matters is how much fun you have playing the game. I am still not able to get that far in this game, because it is a bit confusing. At least everything gets better when you get your pea shooter and manage to get rid of those enemies. Sadly, the black barbed guys are ones you can not kill. What's still cool is how you have a lot of mobility to go wherever you please.

It's fun to just slither around and listen to the neat music. It's especially great to have such a large environment for you to explore. You still could have made the graphics better, but that doesn't really matter much anymore. It was nice to have a map to show where you had been. The place is so massive I don't know where to head next.
