Slimes typically have a gelatinous, spherical body consisting of one shade of color, an eye that rests loosely on its body and a mouth with two nubs in it (which resemble teeth).

Normal slimes are red, gelatinous creatures that have an orange colored eye and a mouth with two nubs in it, that probably serve as teeth.
Slimes do not move, they instead squeeze their bodies downward, then spring themselves upward. When moving, they always try to move towards the nearest ducks. If they cannot at all get to the ducks, they will try to remain directly above them, or get as close to them as possible.
They are always respawned from a red gem no matter what level they are in. Slimes can be killed by shooting a ladder into them, sending them to the ceiling or the ground. Contact with the slimes from below or from the sides will send the duck to the last position from where they entered the room. Slimes can be killed by landing on their head, this killing them and giving the duck a short boost up.
Slimes can exert pressure on buttons, as shown in room twenty-six. The number of slimes in a room is restricted by the number of red gems.

Magical slimes have the same design as the normal slime, but are purple colored, and its eye is green. They appear to sparkle as they move around.
Magical slimes only appear in a secret room - room 23 - but it is possible they can make other appearances in the full version. Magical slimes have the same movement as the normal slime, but they have the added ability of destroying the duck's ladders. Whenever they hop, when they land they may spit a glob of goo at the duck. This glob will destroy the duck's ladder, and kill the duck if its hits them.
Despite having a different appearance, they act exactly like normal slimes, with the added ability of spitting goo. They may have been formed out of the original slime. Magical slimes resemble slime.
