In the absence of Meat Boy Slime-San stands unopposed, and excellent little bite of hyperactive platform action.

Slime-san is a surprisingly refreshing twitch-based platformer that will put a smile on anyone's face. Its sharp controls mixed with brutal but balanced difficulty, as well as some well-done pixelated graphics, makes Slime-san a must buy for anyone looking for some platforming goodness.

Overall, Slime-san is a surprising and insanely fun downloadable title that platforming fans should not hesitate picking up. The style is gorgeous and the music is catchy, while the moment-to-moment gameplay is incredible. Super Meat Boy may still be months from launch, but those looking for a twitch-based platforming experience should not hesitate downloading Slime-san today.

Slime-san is not only a fitting tribute to platform games of previous eras but is also a fun, well designed and well structured platformer that stands on its two legs, thanks to its overall layout, audiovisual component and to a varied content boosted by its very welcome lifespan.

Slime-San mimics what made titles such as Super Meat Boy so different, but despite being beautifully unique, it never reaches the same type of greatness.

When Slime-san works as intended, it's an incredibly clever platformer, filled with endless challenges that constantly come up with new riffs on its themes.

Overall, Slime-San is a very challenging game that will test player's skills in full. You'll need a lot of patience for this one if you want to 100% it, but it's definitely worth the effort since this is a polished release with charming pixel graphics and more than enough content to offer for its asking price. I'm not a fan of hardcore platformers, but this one certainly showed me why some players really like them! I look forward to seeing what Fabraz and Headup Games do after this outstanding release!

Looking for a fast-paced, patience-testing, platforming challenge that may well make you want to throw your Nintendo Switch across the room in frustration? Then Slime-san is for you! Fans of Super Meat Boy and its ilk will be right at home with this addictive, excellently presented piece of gaming goodness that will have players tearing their hair out, but unable to put down until every drop of juice (or 'slime') has been squeezed out of it.

Oozing charm, Slime-san manages to capture that retro platformer feel while simultaneously adding its own touches to the genre. The high speed, low risk design allows for Super Meat Boy levels of difficulty, where death is frequent, but seldom frustrating, and the countdown for when the worm's stomach acid will begin to rise adds a level of tension few platformers ever have. With an incredible soundtrack, stellar art design, and plenty of unlockables to wade through, Slime-san is easily one of the strongest platformers to come out this generation.

Slime-san: Superslime Edition doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it is one of the better variations of the classic platformer out there. The controls are excellent, and the plethora of content here will keep you busy for months. And if your eyes aren't broken like mine, you might even appreciate the visuals.
