ABOUT

Super Slime Slasher Ultra is a game made for Ludum Dare 41. The theme was to mix 2 incompatible genres, so our team decided on a mix of match-3 and action. Players must slash slimes and cash in their chain to earn points by right clicking or pressing LB when a chain of 3 or more of the same color slimes is achieved.

Combining the Incompatible

Our team choose to combine the genres of match-3 and action. To decide upon gameplay, we broke down each genre into its defining traits and chose the best of both to drive our design.

Slimes run around and attack like traditional action enemies, chipping away at the player’s health until the player dies (failing the game). Attacking the slimes does destroy them, but to earn points, players must strategically defeat slimes in match-3 fashion and cash in their combos.
