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%!



Rated 4 / 5 stars


i some how glitched out of the map and i was completely stuck i couldn't even move but still good game.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

nice game

very good content, gameplay and game design :) I'm stuck at 90% items, there is a shell in the ground near the center of the map that I can't reach because only some ground blocks are destroyable but not all. And another one shown I suppose as a white dot on the map, but when I go to this screen there's no shell there. Can someone help me ?

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Great game and good music, but I prefer a game that is functional enough to let players acquire the badges it shows. This is the second time I've played this game through on Normal, and the second time I've spent time sweeping every nook of every room making sure the map is covered, including secret rooms, in one go. I've even checked the author's map and alphasoldier's to be sure. Still no Explorer badge âEU" it just gives me 99%. Such a terrible end to an otherwise excellent experience....

Oh, don't worry. It's not a bug. You can get 100%, you're just missing a room. The most common room people are missing is the room that tells you how to pass Walleyes without getting hurt, which is in the red zone on the right side.
