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%!

Starts good, but just gets worse and worse as the game progresses. Especially the gravity shift ability completely mucked it up, as you get used to the old controls and instantly find yourself using new ones. You didn't think THAT through..

It's pretty much classic Metroid but with snails - and I adore classic Metroid, so no complaints here. Keep up the good work.

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.

100% map

it's there any chance of getting 1--% of the map..I explored all the map and found 100% if the items and it still saiys 99% map:(

auriplane responds:

You can get 100% items without 100% map. A few secrets serve other purposes besides giving you items :-)
