On The Blob: Slime Laboratory

By John Walker on July 11th, 2011 at 12:11 pm.

Science in action.

Your Monday lunchtime entertainment comes in the form of Slime Laboratory by Neutronized. It’s a web game in which you play a blob of slime. Wot jumps. It’s a very decent platform game, which awakens parts of my brain asleep since 1989. Lots of fun ideas, demands for careful jumping, and importantly, reversed gravity. The only issue I’ve been having is the frustration of the slime refusing to jump upward when near a vertical surface. That is eight rubbishes. But beyond that, this is an excellent time killer. Start killing your time.

    Reminds me of the fabulous Gish…

    That headline had me seeing red.

    This is completely unremarkable. An interesting game would’ve exploited the fluid dynamics of the slime interacting with other fluids of varying viscosity, this is just a competent platformer with slightly altered protagonist physics. N is still the undisputed master of flash-based platform mayhem.

    All you do is shoot grime from a casserole dish. 7/10

    Wow. It’s like the littlest angel said “I wonder what would happen if Nitrome had made Gish?” and God said: “BEHOLD!”

    It’s…it’s every bit as crappy as I imagined.
