PC Games Tuesday N°22
Wecome to PC Tuesday - this week presents Sokoban-inspired puzzle game Slimoban 2 by adgard!
Once upon a time, a little girl wearing a red hood got lost in a vast dark dangerous dungeons. Golden coins are shimmering in the corners of each room but there are also slimes, moats and spikes on the floor, and to get through you need to find a way for the girl how to not get eaten by slimes, overcome moats and get rid of the spikes. Your goal is to collect all coins (and survive).
Have a good time with another puzzler!
Luckily for the girl, the dungeons are full of heavy crates and magic potions which are certainly helpful, and the girl is strong enough to push the boxes and even pick them up and throw them. The game guides you through several starting levels and helps you to understand the game's mechanics and rules, and adds new obstacles one by one. The only real danger are slimes but it's possible to make a trap and lure them into it or push them into water where they turn into solid blocks. You may even stun them with a thrown crate and use them then, but for a limited time only. They aren't very smart, the slimes, but can be quite quick and if they manage to get close enough to the girl their touch destroys her and you need to restart the level.
Slimoban 2 is a clever puzzler with an emphasis on planning the actions in each level and combination thinking. You have enough time to think about each level and if you restart, not much progress is lost. The game is controlled by Cursor keys/WASD plus a mouse and has autosave. 32 levels.
Here is the original Slimoban.
In January was published adgard's good puzzle platformer Platfoban.
