A lil' orange slime has to collect all its pieces.Original BBS post Later post with updates
I just think lil' slime blobs with dot eyes are cute. Also, the game is very much inspired by Metroid, as I think anyone could tell.
SPOILERS FOR THE ENDING BELOW
I was kinda hoping people would be thinking of Metroid by the time they beat the game. The long vertical escape, then a scene outside on the surface, with the main character center screen before flashing rapidly and changing.
I kinda thought it would be a funny bait-and-switch that the slime just becomes bigger and that's it. Given the original Metroid ending was supposed to be a big reveal, I hoped people would expect the same from this game and then be let down.
