    A charming world that’s worth getting lost in, Slime Rancher places you in a brightly coloured sandbox and gives you the freedom to make your own way. There are many plates to spin and no real motivation to progress beyond your own curiosity, but this is a journey well worth exploring.

    While gameplay isn’t super-deep, you’ll still find yourself returning to the slime ranch again and again. [Issue#155, p.90]

    Slime Rancher is an enjoyable foray into virtual ranching, yet fails to provide enough meaningful depth beyond its adorable visual identity.

    A cute and fun little game, but can get a little tedious at times. I still recommend it though!

Und in puncto Knuffigkeit setzt derErnten macht glücklich – das wissen die fröhlichen Fans vom Farming-Klassiker Harvest Moon nur zu gut. Und in puncto Knuffigkeit setzt der gerade auch auf Konsole erschienene Steam-Hit Slime Rancher noch einen drauf: Zuckersüße Slimes aller Art stehen im spielerischen Zentrum des grafisch grundsoliden Indiespiels – bis Ihr sie mit Eurer Armkanone aufsaugt, auf der Ranch in Käfigen unterbringt und mit eigens angebautem Gemüse füttert, bis sie wie Nibbler Ressourcen auskacken. Die verwandelt Ihr erst in Geld und dann in sicherere Unterbringungen, Upgrades wie das praktische Jetpack oder das Freischalten weiterer Gebiete. Gerade letzteres aber frisst besonders viel Kohle – weshalb Ihr anfangs deutlich zu viel Zeit mit nervigem Gegrinde verbringt. Dennoch motiviert Slime Rancher für eine ganze Weile, weil trotz aller Candy Crush-Süße ein komplexer Kern drinsteckt. So überleben einige Slimes nur in der Nacht, andere fressen nur Fleisch – oder mit einem Happs Eure wertvollen Hühner. Trotzdem ist Monomi Parks Quasi-Endlosspiel deutlich zugänglicher als Genrekollege Stardew Valley. Expand

    Good game. Simple and relaxing. But very bad optimisation for Ps4. Its lag like sh*t all the time like 15 fps when you have many slimes on screen

    The game completely froze every couple of hours, causing me a lot of setbacks and lost time. I gave up and stopped playing.
