One Slime FAQ
The One Slime FAQ lists answers to One Slime-specific questions (ie, how to beat the slimes). If you have any questions not answered here, visit the talk page and leave your question there for someone to answer! You might also want to have a look at the One Slime Guide.
How many levels are there? Five.
Can I change colours like in the other Slime games? Unfortunately, no. When I did this mod I grabbed some AIs I'd written and threw them all together with a bit of hacking of the original game's code and so the end result isn't all that well written. Maybe one day I'll redo it all.
Why is the first level harder than the second? IMHO it's not. Of course that's coming from the point of view that the first Slime's AI is simply a retarded version of the second one's. So it's a mystery why a lot of people think this is so. No, I won't change it.
Are you referring to Red Symons (sans 'd') for the second Slime? Yeah. But now it's in there, people who have never heard of him will be asking "Why did you change the name of the second slime?" Or something.
The Big Blue Boss is too hard to beat! Not everything is supposed to be easy.
Are there any cheat codes for this game? No.
Pathetic White Slime (White Slime)
Use the tip serve, which draws the slime to the net, and then tip the ball over the other slime. This serve is also useful against human opponents, except you vary it by occasionally "fake jumping" - jump the second time but don't tip the ball over the other slime (see Tip Serve). Once the ball is in play, hit it deep into the court. If you are receiving the serve, just wait at the net, and jump and hit the ball as soon as it comes over the net.
Angry Red Slimonds (Red Slime)
As above. Watch out for drop shots or bastard serves: this slime loves to just push the ball over the net and let it drop. It will watch for you doing drop shots, so hit the ball as far as you can and the AI possibly won't get there in time. Don't bounce it off the back wall unless the slime is already back there. A really cheap way to win is by letting Slimonds serve, running to the net as he does a Bastard Serve (which 99% of the time he does), and jumping when the ball hits your slime. Usually the AI will follow the ball back and jump, so the ball goes underneath.
Slime Master (Black Slime)
The lame way of winning is using the Skim Serve, or if you hit a deepish Tip Serve that hits the back wall just a bit above the ground. If you want a real challenge, once the ball is in play, you can win by throwing the ball at the net rather than spiking it, or hitting it deep into the back court and keeping it low (ie, don't jump when you hit it). Another way is to hit the ball very, very low while the black slime is near the net--try to hit the ball low into his front--it will bounce off his front and into the net, he will jump and it will hit beneath him.
Psycho Slime (Flashing Slime)
If you are cheap, then try using the Reverse Skim Serve. Otherwise, like with the Slime Master, hit the ball deep and long. Wait for Psycho Slime to make a mistake rather than trying to hit winners. Don't spike or throw the ball at the net as this tends to bounce back off Psycho Slime over your own slime and you will lose the point.
Big Blue Boss
Be very patient, hit it long and low. I don't know of any serve that will always defeat the boss. There are reports that a certain type of tip serve will also defeat him (if you get it to hit the back wall just above the ground) but I can't do it! Otherwise, try a reverse skim serve, wait for the boss to hit it back low, and then move forward to hit the ball low so it skims over the net and under the boss. Playing to win using set plays is cheap though.
Some tips from Julien: beating the big blue boss is tough, but i've found 3 different ways to get points against him. one is to draw him close to the net and hit it over his head. another is to hit it very, very low over the net and he on occasion jumps over it. the third way is a perfect slam. there, now i've given away my secrets!
