Explore Snaily World, collect new abilities and weapons, discover secret passages, and save the snails!

CONTROLS - customizable
=========================
Arrow keys to move
Z to jump
X to shoot a weapon
C to shoot a weapon (and hold still)
M for map (you can use TAB, but it won't work in IE)
ESC or P for the menu (pause)

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%!

Fun fun game

Got everything except the speedrun and one of the secret medals.

Though I'm curious... is the secret in the main menu the pseudo pong thing, or does working the pseudo pong thing unlock the proper secret?

Thumbs Up

I have paid for downloadable games with less polish and with a shorter playlife than this one I just spent 3 hours in for free. Well done. I loved it. The powers and upgrades had me feeling like a bad ass at the end and It was the perfect pace and length.
Anyone that complains about the grav shell is too simple realize how amazing it is the flip gravity at your command or was to impatient to take the time to learn how to do it well. It can be overwhelming if you rush to finish the game before you learn how to tell which way is up. Take a few minutes to dick around in a safe but geometrically challenging area, meaning lots of right angles and quick flips.
If you're going into walls you did not find a glitch, you found a secret passage. Explore it, dopey.

IF YOU ARE HAVE TROUBLE FILLING YOUR MAPS OUT TO 100% I put mine up in my profile. Just click my name in this comment. Find the damn shells on your own though, I'm not holding your hand for a whole damn walkthrough.

Very Interesting

I always enjoy these semi-open world RPGs with upgradable stuff, loads of secrets, and a wide assortment of challenges and enemies. It is rare to find a Flash Game that is as well programmed as this one. Everything seemed to work so well together, and there was barely any lag. I very much enjoy the system you used. It is clean and to the point.

I loved going everywhere and doing everything. The world was vast and full of possibilities and interactions. My favorite part was getting the boomerang, because that opened up even MORE possibilities. I am still playing the game as I type this, and I can't wait to finish it.

All in all, looks fantastic.
