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%!



It isn't very often to find an epic flash game adventure, that lasts hours. This game did just that. This game is challenging, and very similar to Metroid, one of my favorite game franchises.

Deliciously old school, reminded me of why I love games in the first place. Good job man.

Not bad

Good game, but I got bored quickly. 8/10, 4/5

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.
