Slime Rancher Review
Slime Rancher is a charming first-person game in an experimental environment. Play for Beatrix LeBeau – a brave girl farmer who decides to spend the rest of her life on the planet Endless Wrong, a thousand light-years from Earth. The developer of the game is the company Monomi Park, which released its first version in 2017.
Slime Rancher is a fun adventure on the planet Extreme Limit, on your hereditary ranch with its secrets and puzzles. You must also unravel where the amazing creatures of slime live. But believe me, it is not only tens of hours from the pleasure of cartoon graphics. All you need in the game is to explore the territory, to get resources, improving your ranch, and the most fun is to collect colorful slims. To collect you will need your multifunctional backpack vacuum cleaner.
Using a backpack vacuum cleaner is easy enough to go into the wild, find different entities, and suck them up with this vacuum cleaner. Be sure to follow the orders of other people in the galaxy. This will give you extra income to improve your habitat or your tools/appliances.
In the latest version of the game, Slime Rancher graphics were slightly improved through updates from developers. It is made in cartoon style with an abundance of bright colors. The sky, the environment, slims, and even weapons are mottled with bright colors, so you will not be bored during the game. The textures are quite detailed for cartoon graphics. The most important thing is that the game stably works even on not very productive PCs.
In action Slime Rancher, you will play for the girl with a first-person view. During the whole game, you will need to use a vacuum cleaner gun instead of a weapon. So it's more convenient to use the classic WASD keyboard layout together with a computer mouse to aim and move quickly. Setting up automatic aiming, you can effectively play with the connected gamepad.
The Bottom Line
Slime Rancher is very similar to one project, which is called Harvest Moon. Here and there you need to be engaged in your own farm, that's just the difference in the way I said earlier that in Slime Rancher, you do not have a farm, as many claims, but a ranch, and instead of animals – slims, which is also important.
Harvest Moon graphics are 2D and not as colorful as her rival’s, and the camera is almost always on top. In Slime Rancher it's the opposite – the graphics are very colorful and cartoonish, I think, even in a way, BrawlStars envies this graphics, but this will not affect mobile video games. And most importantly, this project can go even on weak computers.
Download Slime Rancher on your PC to enjoy the open world and fascinating gameplay.
