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%!


Awesome metroidvania game

Wow, I haven't played a good Flash game like this since "Level Up!". Great game, with a lot of content. Loved the secrets. My only complaint is that it's hard to control once you get the Gravity ability. Still, great job, and I'd love to see a sequel someday.
I played on Normal, and except for the bosses and Lux Lirata area I didn't found it to be that hard.

Totally sick

Metroid remake anyone? So sweet!!!!!!

d'aww they're cute

I have a hard time with the boss fights, especially the last one (I beat him once and now I need to do it again? still haven't beaten that part), but the snarks? Are they called? Are so adorable I would play the whole game just to see them.

I like searching for hidden rooms, too. Haven't found everything yet, but it's getting there. 10/10

In case no one has suggested it...

You should call the sequel the "Gastropodyssey." This is because you should definitely continue your work. This game is quite incredible. Users that are having trouble may wish to try using a gamepad in conjunction with the Joytokey program. Otherwise, quite wonderful game. Thank you!
