I started trying Slime World again thanks to the Atari Lynx HandyCast. People seem to really love this game, but I'm having a lot of trouble getting into it. This is my second attempt to really dig into this title. So far, I feel like I'm mostly just brute-forcing through rooms when possible, either by using the slime shield or rushing through hazards until I find a pool of water I can use.
For example, I had no idea how to get past that room where it has that maggot-volcano near the beginning other than just jumping through it and minimizing damage. I got taken out by snappers that I couldn't see, and didn't quite see a general pattern, though I noticed in that particular room that the snappers appeared where slime was dripping downward.
I must not be approaching this game correctly. Does anyone have any tips? I'd like to get to the point where I'm not just brute-forcing through hazards or memorizing, but instead playing in a generally smarter way.
I'm mostly playing the Exploration level, if that helps.
