  1. The quirky and sometimes innocent sense of humor is omnipresent. Why, even after a heated and bitter battle that ends in his tank being utterly destroyed, Rocket's rival will usually pay him a sincere compliment before scampering off in defeat.

    There may not be anything eye-catchingly bold about Rocket Slime, but there’s close to nothing to criticise: this is the work of masters of their craft. [Dec 2006, p.92]

    This is pretty good fun, with so-bad-it's-hilarious dialogue and cute bestiary, but the cannon fights are just a little too repetitive to stay interesting long. [Dec 2006, p.68]
  4. The game is incredibly repetitive. You get the standard different worlds of jungle, sand, sky, etc. but other than the colour palette and decor there wasn't anything unique about any of them.

    Rocket Slime is a game which was largely overlooked on release, a shame given that, despite its younger target audience and the departure from the typical Dragon Quest RPG stylings, it’s shamelessly entertaining.

    This game is easy to pick up and play. It uses the a button to the extreme, but is really easy to learn. The a button does the electro blast, This game is easy to pick up and play. It uses the a button to the extreme, but is really easy to learn. The a button does the electro blast, jumps, floats, and is the main button to this game. You play as rocket a slime that is trying to find his 100 friends that the plob took from your village. After you play for a little bit you can throw slimes or items on a cart and those will go back to town. The items that you throw on a cart is used for the tank battles. The tank battles are the heart of the game and are real easy to do. You throw any thing in you cannon and hopes it hits the other tank before he throws some items in his. All on all this is one dragon quest game that no fan should be without. Full Review »

    For a game that requires you to bang around and knocking into enemies or allies alike, this game did it bad. It is not the childish game play For a game that requires you to bang around and knocking into enemies or allies alike, this game did it bad. It is not the childish game play that I am complaining about, even though I don't like a single bit of it, but it is that nonsensical plot that I find gruesome. If its not for the still legible graphics, It wont recieve one single point from me. Full Review »
