About Slime-San

Slime-san was minding his own business, sliming around in a peaceful forest when suddenly…A giant worm appeared and gobbled him up!

Now deep within the worm’s belly, Slime-san has to face a decision: Be digested by the incoming wall of stomach acid... Or jump, slide and slime his way through the worm's intestines and back out its mouth!

Features

  • Incredibly fast-paced and twitch-timing platforming madness!
  • No time to stay still as you are chased by a wall of acid at every corner! Run, run, run!
  • Being a slime has its perks. Slime your way through cracked walls and surfaces!
  • Bust through brittle obstacles or tense situations with a speedy dash move.
  • Slime to slow time, dash to speed it up. Feel like an absolute badass with pixel precise maneuvers!
  • A game filled with content: 100 levels made out of 400 rooms combined with 100 new game+ levels totaling to a staggering 200 levels and 800 rooms!
  • Collect partially-digested apples to unlock different play styles, outfits, shaders and mini-games!
  • Get your shopping done in a town of survivors within the worm, home to colorful characters and surprising secrets.
  • Each level is timed with online rankings, for the competitive and score-oriented.
  • Unlock extra game modes like New Game+, Speed Running and Boss Rush modes!
