The notorious Blackbird's kracked, I mean, cracked! He believes Slime-san stole his treasure and unleashed his giant Kraken upon him! Sound familiar? It is now up to Slime-san to escape the giant squid's jaws back out to freedom!
Slime-san is the fourth major game developed by Fabraz. The three previous titles being Planet Diver, Cannon Crasha and Wild Wild Pixel. Slime-san is a game that is fun down to its very core. A silly story, with an unlikely character and gameplay that is addictively fast. It features hours of single player content yet is tailored for speed runners as well. The very core mechanics and level design lend themselves to be played competitively online. It is a visually unique adventure using a carefully crafted, 5 color palette world that is filled with fun and goofy Japanese references. It also has a soundtrack that is worth the price alone, featuring some of the most popular chiptune composers in the world! Published by Headup Games.

I really love Slime-san and was very happy to see this some sort of DLC, while it is a standalone game it more feels like a mission pack but still I'm happy the devs decided to release it. We get new missions with the same presentation and gameplay. The asked price is humble so I really recommend getting this one if you liked the original game.
Just like Dark Souls, the original Slime-san is a game where you will die a-l-o-t, and while that is of no great consequence and you're able to eventually pick up where you left off without needing to start over from scratch, each death -though formative- feels like a small strike to your pride in your own skills as a gamer. The new pseudo-DLC/expansion for Slime-san, Blackbird's Kraken follows that same design philosophy, but ramps out the difficulty in the beginning and makes it harder for the player to complete all challenges as easily. Surprisingly, Blackbird's Kraken does makes sure to train the player with a well-tailored tutorial. yet the aforementioned difficulty in the early section can and will easily put off newcomers to the genre. Otherwise, the responsiveness of the controls and tightness of the level design remained unchanged from the base game, still giving the player an experience free of any undeserved frustration. Unsurprisingly, there are plenty of cosmetical challenges present, from the colorful backgrounds to the plethora of items and monsters. The changes are mostly welcomed though and certainly don't feel cheap, making sense in the context of the DLC's intention to offer a more focused, challenging experience (for example, the switch from the insides of a worm to those of a far more terrifying creature, a Kraken). For the most part, the gameplay basics remain unchanged. This time, there are roughly 100 stages to get past, bonus challenge stages and the newly introduced New Game+.feature (which is a very nice addition) not withstanding. The total playtime needed to complete this expansion can be compared to how long one world in the original takes to be completed, so in order to keep the player engaged, the creators made sure that each level has a unique feel and mechanic attached to it. Truly, this game feels more like a sequel than a DLC; there are enough similarities betweern the two games to make that not so certain, but there's plenty of new stuff too: we have a completely new hub and a new story and new levels to make things feel fresh from the first game. Regardless how you see it, Blackbird's Kraken is more than worth the price, not to mention I played it through multiple times in the short period since its release and enjoyed it every time. Definetly don't miss this neat title, especially if you liked the original Slime-san!
