Independent developer Gionathan Pesaresi, more commonly known as Neutronized, has announced that their latest title, Slime Labs, will be releasing for iOS on March 10th as well as Android at some stage. If you've been a fan of mobile gaming for some time you'll be familiar with Neutronized as the developer of excellent games such as Super Cat Tales, Swap-Swap Panda and Picnic Penguin.
Slime Labs then is a physics-based platformer where you'll look to guide a pile of green ooze through a series of hazards that include the usual dangers associated with the genre such as lasers, spikes and perilous falls into suspicious liquid. However, unlike most platform protagonists our slimy green hero is capable of changing shape.
The ooze can stretch, shrink and become gigantic by absorbing smaller bits of slime. This will come in handy when navigating the dangers found throughout the lab. For example, if you help the slime reach its maximum size then it will be heavy enough to bash down certain walls that are standing in your way.
