A Slime's Test for Intelligence

Can an amorphous slime solve puzzles? Scientists seek to answer this question with a series of 22 problem-solving chambers. Use your squishy body to uncover the clever insights in each level and prove the capabilities of the humble slime. 

Many thanks to Clement Sparrow, the main developer of Pattern:Script, which this game was made with, and all the playtesters, especially Menderbug. The source code can be found in the "More information" dropdown.

suddenly getting extreme lag in this game

Might be related to scaling in chromium?
Opened on Edge at high DPI, it goes down to frame-by-frame after 1-2 levels
Opened in a lower screen resolution it runs fine, and takes a while to slow if the res is changed back after loading.
Doesn't seem to occur in Firefox.

Need to return to work on my own project, but I look forward to continuing the journey with the slime. The animations are REALLY smooth (by regular game standards and especially puzzlescript standards) and the puzzles are really well designed too!
