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!

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%!


Not 8-bit

The game is not 8-bit its 16-bit. Its also a lot like metroid and i find it extreemly awesome. 10/10 100/100 9999/9999

My god...

did I just spend 5 hours on this game!

Excellent execution. Music was perfect, secret passageways were perfect, hell the dialogue was perfect!

I love how it starts off as just some snail on his own, and near the end you become a powerhouse of ungodly poportions.

Brilliant flash! I look forward to your next submission.

You know, I was a little leery of this at first. I wasn't sure how the whole snail thing would play out.

But, I played a bit, and I really like this game! :3 I love all the different colors of snails, I love the bright colors, I love the music, and I love how even though this is a new game, it has this great feeling of nostalgia for me. It reminds me of the good ol' days when I'd sit down with my siblings and cousins and play a couple rounds of Super Mario Brothers. You know, good, clean fun!

I've played most of the games people have mentioned in the reviews, but I haven't played this one. I'll have to check it out! :-)


LOL, i played the game out of order, so i couldnt get to some parts of the game, i defeated the third boss, the space boss without going into his territory or getting the gun. sweet
