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%!

I've never seen another flash game this good. Its super fun, and the idea is awesome. The only bad thing is music I think. Musics gave me headache. This was amazing. Keep up the good job!

Like metroid

but of course, with snails.

This game is just as awesome as metroid ever was, and having snails just makes it better.
do you ever plan on making the odysnail?

I'd like to! I was calling it Snailysses, but my friends informed me that "Snailysses" was an even stranger title than "Snailiad" :-)


Rated 5 / 5 stars

VERY good game.

If it only was twice, and ONLY twice as long, it could have been on the SNES. It had GREAT music, art, gameplay, even tho I wish you could climb directly after a jump, even if you hold Z down.
