10 Tips for Fast Newbucks and Growth

It’s time to return to the mysterious slimy world slime breeder 2. Regardless of whether you’ve played the first game or not, you’ll have a relaxing experience listening to lumps of unknown substance for a living – at least it’ll be relaxing until they start getting hungry. As with any farming game, there are many different ways you can optimize your profits, but trying to do them all at once can be overwhelming.

We’ll give you some tips on how to get the most out of your slimes in the early game, which slimes to focus on, which upgrades to prioritize, and how to brace yourself for rapid expansion later on.

Play your way

For many like farming games slime grower should be relaxing experiences that don’t challenge you too much, while others may enjoy the overwhelming amount of tweaking on offer. If the default difficulty settings seem a bit too much for you, there are a handful of options available to make life a little easier. You can disable tar or wild slime so you never have to worry about damaging your entire farm, or you can customize how much damage you take to keep the game’s combat nice and easy.

Explore 24/7

Exploring the world is the most important part of slime grower. Here you will find not only the story of the game, but also new slimes, food and resources for your farm. You should go out to collect stuff regularly, especially since many wild slimes will spawn plorts without your intervention.

However, make sure you explore the areas both during the day and at night. There are a lot of slimes out there that don’t like daylight, so you’ll miss them completely unless you go out when the moon is high in the sky. This can be dangerous at times since tar slimes tend to be more exploratory, but the money you make from these night-only slimes is well worth the effort.

Feed Gordo Slimes

If you thoroughly explore the starting island, you’ll quickly come across some giant slimes that will sit there and not move. This Gordo slimes only move when you feed them a lot of; and by “moving” we mean exploding into lots of regular slimes. These big blobs usually block some sort of secret path that helps you progress, but even if they don’t, the sheer number of slimes you get from popping them makes them useful.

Keep your slimes happy

Keeping your slimes where you put them is one of the hardest parts of this game. While upgrading your corals is helpful to contain them, the easiest way to control your slimes is to make sure they don’t want to escape in the first place. When your slimes are hungry they will become restless, causing them to be more likely to jump high into the sky and right out of their coral. Feeding them regularly will keep them calm, but you can also install a music player in their coral to keep them happier longer.

Offer their favorite foods

Different types of slime only eat certain types of food, but they also have a specific item that is their favorite food. If you feed them this, they will produce twice as many plorts as normal, effectively doubling your profits. While plenty of food can be hard to come by at first, try to feed each slime their favorite food as often as possible.

Get Phosphorus Slime early

Pink and cotton slime are probably the first slime types you will encounter. They’re beautiful and low-maintenance and will help you build a little money, but they’re not where the real money is made. The easiest early game money is in Phosphorus slimesthat only spawn at night. Your living space requires a little setup, but the gain is worth it.

You’ll need to use your Pink and Cotton slimes to build enough money for a double tall coral with an air mesh, and most importantly sun protection, as phosphorus slimes and their plorts die when exposed to sunlight. Alternatively, you can buy the cave extension to your farm, but that’s very expensive when you’re just starting out.

Create Largo Slimes

Holding pens with regular slimes will get you far, but if you really want to get rich you need to create something Largo slimes. These slimes are created whenever a normal slime eats a plort of a different type. They then become a hybrid between the two types, inheriting the diet, favorite food, and plort output of both slime types.

You have to be careful with them though, because if they eat a third kind of plort they’ll turn into spoiled tar slimes, at which point they’re no good for anyone. In addition, they can become aggressive and even wild if you don’t feed them for too long, which can cause major problems. Only create Largos if you know you can feed them well.

Play the plot market

You can’t live on one type of plan forever. The Plort Market can cause problems if you sell too much of one or two types of Plort as their value will go down. If you’ve just made a big haul and sold a lot of stuff, it’s best to wait a while before selling more of the same plort, ideally sell a few different plorts in the meantime.

We’ve said the word plort too many times now, it sounds like nonsense, but we’re serious plorters so we’ll keep going.

Endure the expansion

Getting a big new area on your farm is an exciting prospect, but it might be best to wait a while before buying the big stuff. In the early game, these expansions can be quite expensive, and you might be surprised at how much space you start with. It’s better to spend your money making the most of the space you have and only start expanding when you have to, because by then you’ve probably made a lot of money doing it.

Upgrade your gear whenever possible

The world can be a dangerous place and your standard gear won’t make it. With a combination of resources in the world, money and plans, you can create all sorts of new tools. You can harvest new minerals, hold more stuff, have more health and energy, or even find new ways to traverse the world. It will make your life so much easier, so make sure you do it whenever you have resources left.
