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%!

too hard

i couldnt find enough shell things and so moon snail was to hard. all the bosses where all too hard be cause you basiclly had to get lucky

auriplane responds:

None of the bosses are luck-based.

It seems like a fun game, but it seems you've made it possible to get completely stuck. I've wound up in the area where the green snail says "Watch out, snaily! Without the ice snail power, the next area will be too difficult!" but I can't leave the area to the right of that. I guess I don't have the right power yet. But it shouldn't have been possible to fall into this area if I didn't yet have the ability to get out. Unfortunately I walked over the save point next to the green snail, so I can't find a way to get out of here without completely starting the game over...

auriplane responds:

You do have the ability to get out. Head up and to the right, toward where you fell in, and then head to the right. You can climb the wall, fall off to the left, and make your way up to where you fell through. Continue to the right, and you can make your way to Ice Snail.

If you still can't figure it out, send me a private message and I'll show you what I mean.
