A Slimy Quest

A Slimy Quest is a hybrid 2D Platformer with combat and pong mechanics. 

You control a 'cute' little slime and venture through a deadly dungeon operated by the evil Wizard Matlet!  

Vanquish him AND BECOME THE WORLD PONG CHAMPION!  Or don't,  do what you want.

I enjoyed taking this slimy quest!  I'd love to play a commercial game with some of the pong-to-platformer mechanics of this!
