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!

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%!

Darn... If I just had 5 minutes more, I could totally do that speedrun! Either way, I have no complaints about this game. Only problem was of course, the length. :P Not as bad as FF6 though. Never knew Flixel was capable of this. Looking forward to a sequel!

I have to say, although I thought of this as a rather bland game(When I started out), that quickly changed to an addicting, must complete game that I just couldn't get off of. To be honest, I feel the fact they were snails just made it seem...all that much more a good way. To think such a storyline could actually come through this is rather entertaining all on it's own.

A must play game. ^_^

a great new oldschool game

I love how Snailad brings some oldshool nes style graphics and sound to the table. For that reason, the graphics and sound are somewhat bland, but mix together well and really remind players of those good-ol days! The game provides a nice long-lasting experience with a balanced learning curve as Snaily world is explored.... and boy does it take some exploring. I still can't find the last piece of that dang shell. Where de heck ARE YOU!?

My personal experience:

+Weeapons become fun to blast everything with
+Upgrades keep the game going throughout
+lots of stuff to do besides just 'beat it'
+Only found one single glitch at the shrine of isis (I flew off into space... it was fun till I died lol.)

-Sometimes a pain in the butt to hug every single wall looking for secret openings
-Gravity shell controls can get a little nuts

All in all, Snailad is fun, long lasting, challenging and cute. 8/10
