In the past few years it has been a surprise to see the roguelike deckbuilder style of game go from the fringe to the mainstream. Buoyed by highly-successful titles like Slay the Spire and some others there have been a number of exceptional titles in the space on the Switch. Now we have Rise of the Slime to add to the list of titles in the genre, and while it does a reasonably good job of putting together strategy with choices of consequence it also struggles to make its mark among its brethren. A slightly lower price and a polished cohesive look do help its case, but if you're looking for the top dogs in this genre this is more of a middle of the pack entry.
