Certain monsters cover your gem board with slimes that weaken your attacks. The more slimes left on the gem board, the less damage that you do. Every time you use a gem with slime on it, it removes a layer of slime. Slimes can have one, two or three layers. The slime’s green color will be darker, depending on how many layers there are. Clear as much of the slime as you can as fast as possible to get your attacks back to full strength!
