    Sling Ming is a polished game with rock-solid physics and smart puzzles, all shot through with a simple, endearing story and a catchy soundtrack. Difficulty is carefully balanced with addictive mechanics that reward perseverance, leaving a game that can stand proudly with the best indie offerings on the eShop.

    The levels are enjoyably tough, as well as quite pretty in all their cartoony simplicity, but, when it comes to enjoying Sling Ming, it all boils down to this: who will find controlling a heroine by handling the rope she is tied to, with gravity doing the rest of the work, any fun? Simply put, the answer is 'not everyone.'

    The inclusion of something that relies on precision movement with a clumsy transport system designed primarily for puzzles, is a massive hole in an otherwise clever premise. Small frustrations in her physics soon build up and the game becomes a slog rather than a joy.

    If you’re not super into mobile gaming but you want to recreate the experience on your Switch, then it might be kind of worth checking this game out, but it’s not going to be the end of the world if you miss out on it, either.

    Overall, Sling Ming does have some solid working but don’t let its cute facade fool you as it’s as tough as nails. If you’re up for a challenge, then you’ll find this game to be a blast. To everyone else, you’ll have more fun with a character keychain and some string.

    it is fun later on its really tough and unless you can figure out not just the direction of your ming in a sling but the speed power etc you will die and the puzzles are clever deadly and not always easy to figure out
    And that's Why its so good no handholding for the later levels the 4 worlds I played vary in design and difficulty and the story is simple but entertaining I cant give this great game anything less than a 9 its so so good and above all addicting
