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:

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 / 5 stars

great game!

it's a bit, too, um, grand theft auto, if you know what i mean (there should be more hints into what to do), but otherwise, it's a great game, by the way, i hate the Space Box boss. >.< freaking annoying.

Great :D

Great game but there was only one problem I had with it ... The movement from screen to screen ... O_O cant stand it but well done on the rest of the game :)


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Great game, though the length could be better..

I really loved this game. Of course, I had a great feeling of playing Metroid here, as this was basically Metroid but with slugs. The controls were good, though the gravity jump kind of was a bit disorienting. The music was catchy, I still have the first level medley in my head, and the use of the Famitracker was good for this game. The graphics were good, nothing too special, but they worked. And overall, the game was great. I see that repetition is occuring just about.

Anyways, there is one major thing that I don't like about this game: The length. While it did take me about two hours on my first playthrough of this game, it wasn't really up to the styles of any famous "treasure hunt" sort of style game, of course again, like Metroid. There were a lot of secrets, yet still it didn't justify for the short length. That was my only gripe.

Other than that, great job! Hope to see a sequel!
