Introducing difficulty levels (version 1.1)

We've been getting feedback that the game is too difficult. It was always our intention to make a family friendly game, but it seems we missed the mark. To remedy this we are adding difficulty levels to the game!

When starting a new game you get to choose between Normal and Hard difficulty. Choosing Hard will give you the same game as before, while choosing Normal will remove some of the difficulties and barriers which frustrate people.

Here are a few examples of how Normal difficulty differs from Hard:
  • Some enemies and hazards are removed or simplified, allowing you to focus on the puzzles.
  • Less itoms are required to open the boss doors.
  • The bosses have less health.
This is the first update, which we wanted to publish as fast as possible. Balancing the difficulty for a wide range of people is challenging and we intend to continue working until we get it right. We're currently discussing if and how to allow difficulty to be switched for an already started save slot. If you have any opinions on this matter, please leave a comment.

We hope you like the update and would love to hear what you think of the game. Start a discussion or write a review!

“I loved the experience I had and Ming is an absolutely adorable character!”
80% – Switch Watch

“From presentation to performance Sling Ming absolutely shines and, much like my broken Chinese vases, the developers here, have absolutely smashed it.”
8 / 10 – Bonus Stage

“It is, frankly, a superb independent game that I recommend to everyone, from the youngest to the oldest. The programming is neat, the graphics are superb, the sound is well done and most importantly, the story is original. [...] Sling Ming is a game that you absolutely must have.”

About This Game

"..sigh... Why do they always hide important keys in the farthest corners of the galaxy?"

Princess Ming is desperate to find the cause of the never-ending earthquakes that plague her kingdom. An old and mysterious door, deep below her castle, seems to hold the answer. The star coordinates next to the three giant locks is her only clue. Get the royal rocket ready!

The Oxylane

Hook up to the Oxylane, a transit system that lets you fly through the air, swing around corners and defy gravity.

  • Plan your path by arranging the Oxylane nodes
  • Time your moves to control your swing and perform cool aerials
  • Rearrange and revisit nodes to solve puzzles

The Story

Back in the days, before Ming became princess, the air was so polluted it was harmful to breathe. People hooked up to the Oxylane via elastic tubes to get fresh air. Over time it evolved into a standardized way of transportation. The daily commute to the coal mines and oil refineries would have been impossible without the Oxylane!

That all changed with the revolution and the Big Cleanup. But with the king missing and the kingdom plagued by earthquakes, are old sins really dead or just buried and forgotten?
