Ambition of the Slimes
About this game
Developer: ALTAIR WORKS
Content Rating: Everyone10+
Slimes are surprisingly versatile - they can use magic, they can multiply, they can use special abilities...but no matter how capable they are, unfortunately, they usually end up bashed into a mush, sometimes not even by the protagonist of the game but by a village commoner!

Don’t get me wrong, I had a decent time with Ambition of the Slimes for the Nintendo Switch. But the game’s troubling camera system and need to stretch out each stage slightly put a damper on my experience, making the overall enjoyment factor only feel “ok” rather than “great”. The combat system is definitely on par with genre blockbusters, and the premise of the game is unique and interesting, making this game a potential starting point for those who may be interested in trying out tactical, turn-based games.
Ambition Of The Slimes throws the classic turn-based RPG formula on its head, enabling you to use the underdog to capture human enemies and battle in an interesting, new way. The large variety of attacks, abilities, and techniques available to you make the battles truly exciting, but a very harsh level of difficulty across all game modes sadly results in a lot of frustration.
Looking past the aesthetic issues, Ambition of the Slimes provides a unique and fresh experience for strategy combat enthusiasts. Elements I thought would feel redundant actually added to the layers of complexity that made the game all that more interesting. One word of caution, if you have a particularly sensitive gag reflex you may want to close your eyes and cover your ears that first time your Slime finds its way into the throat of its opponent.
