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%!

This reminds me so much

of blaster master, when the birds started showing up I knew just how much it was like it. Good job.

Like Metroid, just different

Should I tell you something very important for your health?
"Don't play this game! You can't stop! The only positive thing is, that you finish it in nearly 3 hours. Otherwise you would die because of hunger"

+ Damn! How crazy can the design of a game be?!?
+ You don't feel being an idiot because of playing a snail :)
+ Perfectly balanced speed - not too fast to loose control, but fast enough explain the world a few times.
+ I love secrets!!!
+ Nice boss fights
+ Although there are so many upgrades the control won't get very complicated.
+ Thank you for including the minimap-feature
+ Very different enemies
- Sometimes the gravity-upgrade is a bit confusing, but I don't know how you could do it better
- The boss rush is too haaaard (for me) :D ----- don't count this point ^^

+ Hey! There are snails everywhere!
+ Very funny and senseless background :)
+ Different endings!
+ Nice dialogs
- The whole story is told in the beginning and the end of the game. What is between?

Scale (is it the right English word?)
+ 3 nearly always funny hours!
+ Tons of items
+ Big map
+ Lot's of different creatures...
+ ... some of them appear just one time - I don't know, but I love it <3
+ Secret areas, which doesn't appear on the map

+ The quality of the graphics isn't important because of the strange style
+ Different tilesets used
+ Perfectly but together (every room looks different)
- However! The graphics is out of date - sorry, but fact is fact ;)

My speakers weren't switched on... Sorry, I hate me for that.

You don't know what you should do in school? You don't know what you should do at home? You don't know what you should do while Call of Duty is being installed?
Now you know! Play Snailiad and leave Call of Duty alone. Why shouldn't you play the better game?
So, thank you for reading and have a nice time in Snail Town where your real friends are waiting for you :D
