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%!

Good up until the gravity jump part

Then everything fell apart.

The controls themselves were awful, but I found out you could change them so I'm not marking down for that, but once the gravity jump became active, the game was literally unplayable. I couldn't go anywhere without dying. Mostly because the gravity switched automatically whenever you were sticking to walls, rather than just when you jumped.

I just began zooming in every direction, unable to react in time before getting slapped around by everything and dying in 10 seconds. I eventually just gave up.

Until that point I was having a lot of fun, and the music was nice, but unfortunately I can't enjoy the rest of the game because this isn't just "difficult" once you get the gravity jump, it is literally impossible to play.

very well done

with the length and the gameplay, this feels like a legit nes game. the controls were easy and the powerups added layers of fun. the final boss was quite challenging. very well done.

awesome game :D

If you didnt find this worth using time on, you just didnt have the brain big enough to figure out what to do, and neither the patience to do it.

When that's said...
This is a really good game, a REALLY BIG map too...i've played so far for 1hour 18min, i soon got it all :P almost killed moon snail when i had just the first rainbow weapon, right after i got it :P didnt have the shield or anything other important xP Rainbow power ftw! im trying to find the rest of the hexalions, and i found the isis snail now ^^ :P wish there was a real Release of this game, i'd buy it for the computer :P more lvls, more missions. Its a game worth using time on! :D Well made!

15out of 10 in grade!! :D

I was loving this game until...

...i hit the esc key in the middle of the battle with the third boss. when i came back, all my upgrades were deleted.

besides that, the game itself is worth a 10 out of 10.
