Of course, one of the most important and most exhaustive reference for our game was the animated TV show “Slugterra”. We tried as closely as possible to adapt all the game content to the original style, develop it in accordance with the solutions of game design and, at the same time, do not forget about optimization.
The main goal of the Art Department was to create a visually high-quality product that will appreciate the army of Slugterra fans and pleasantly surprise those players, who are lucky enough to get acquainted with this exciting world for the first time.
The heart of Slugterra: Dark Waters is the irreconcilable struggle between good and evil, so every our game character has already chosen on whose side he is. Bright and charismatic, each of them brings something of their own into the gameplay, making it more expressive.
The main character of the game and at this moment is the only one for which you can play at all.
Eli grew up on the surface, always hoping of the day his father would take him down to Slugterra to become The Shane - a slugslinging hero, who protects this amazing underground world from bad guys! When Will Shane goes missing, it's up to Eli to make the drop down to Slugterra alone on his 15th birthday, and learn how to become the greatest slugslinger of all.
Pronto “The Magnificent”, as he modestly cals himself, is a "proud and knowledgeable" Molenoid tracker, as well as a master Slugslinger and adventurer, or at least that's what he thinks. He is the first to join the Shane Gang and is Eli Shane's first companion.
Although silly and comedic, Pronto can sometimes save his team from uncertain doom, so do not neglect his help!
Beatrice Sting, more commonly known as Trixie, is not so fragile girl, as it seems at first glance. On the Slugslinging field she is a very serious player and can set the heat to any guy!
Trixi is a full member of the Shane Gang and a very useful companion on the battlefield. He is always bulls eye, but when it comes to fighting or dueling, can also spot a smart strategy for the whole team.
This huge blue skinned Cave troll is the Shane Gang's technical expert. Kord towers over the rest of the team and is the most physically strongest out of all of them. His honest, kind personality can sometimes cheer up the gang when they needed it most.
Before you can recruit Kord as a permanent companion on the missions, you will have the opportunity to practice with him in the Arena for duel battles, which he manages.
Nacho is a Ghoulslinger with power to spare. He is Dr. Blakk's right-hand man and enforcer of all "special operations" of the Blakk Industries.
This massive creature of mysterious origins, with a hole in his heart that's bigger than the deepest, darkest pit shaft in all of Slugterra. That’s why it was Nacho who became the head of the mission “Dark Waters” — one of the most Dr. Blakk’s terrifying inventions, the spread of which you will have to prevent in our exciting game!
“Slug” is a common name for an apparently shell-less magical creatures, which became the main focus of the underground battleworld of Slugterra. There are currently 48 known breeds of Slugs (not including ghouled slugs), that fall into 12 different elemental forces, such as earth, air, fire, water, energy etc ... And each breed of Slug has its own incredible and unique abilities. When this little alive ammo fired with the help of the Blaster, it reaches a velocity of more than one hundred miles per hour and transform into a stronger form called Velocimorph/Battle Form, which can be highly destructive. Nothing in the vastness of the 99 caverns can compare with this power!
At the moment the Arsenal of our game consists of 21 famous slugs, but in the subsequent updates we will certainly try to please our users and significantly expand this range.
There is only one slug, who stands out from all the others, — Eli's best ever slug buddy.
Burpy is the most famous Infurnus Slug, empowered with the element of fire. In his protoform Burpy can create a small flame, good for light in dark spots, signal flares and lighting a campfire. But when he transforms into Velosimorph, this little creature takes on the characteristics of a powerful phoenix-dragon hybrid.
Extremely loyal to Eli and cleverer than an average slug, Burpy's got slug moves most people have never even seen before!
As well as slugs, the blaster is an integral part of each Slugslinger’s basic equipment. Their main function — to shoot Slugs with enough force for them to reach velocity and transform. As a rule, all of them have a similar structure, however how many Slugslingers there in the Underworld, so many blasters, customized for the combat features of their owners. So choose your own and go to the battles!
The Defender is a blaster owned by our main hero Eli Shane and created by the Slugterra’s most famous blastersmith Red Hook. There are only two made of this kind, with the other belonging to Eli's father, Will Shane. This is legendary gear — extra light-weight, but at the same time extremely powerful!
Used to attach accessories to enchance the blaster's or slinger's performance.
The area to chamber the slug shells. These clear blue-plastic tubes the most common type of shell for holding Slugs.
The power source for all blasters. This mechanism converts Slug energy for use in firing the blaster.
This is where the blaster's trigger mechanism, cocking mechanism and fusion core are located.
Different barrels are better suited for different types of shots. This means, that looking at a slinger's blaster, you can provide clues to their slinging style, even without knowing what kinds of slugs they use.
This was our own invention, designed to diversify the gameplay. Different items with specific properties will help your hero easier to overcome all the dangerous obstacles that are waiting for him on the way. Select which power-ups you want to use, add extra abilities into your Arsenal and defeat your enemies!

Slugterra: Dark Waters is a unique game that has collected several types of gameplay. This is a top-down action RPG, a third-person view shooter and a duel fighting at the same time. The main goal of our team was to develop a casual interface for each of the selected modes, so that when they switch, users can quickly and easily adapt to the new game rules and controls.
This is the main storyline mode with the main objective — to complete all missions and defend Slugterra from the clutches of evil Dr. Blakk. In addition to the plot, everything in our game is tied up with the Campaign progress, since the unlock and upgrade of legendary equipment to the availability of all other types of gameplay.
Dynamic camera with a comfortable view and a simplified controls allow you to effectively cope with crowds of enemies even playing with only one hand.
As part of a small digression from the main storyline, we introduced in Campaign mode the opportunity to compete in special duel arenas with any of the characters opened during the missions. This time you will face with them one on one.
In addition to the third-person view, for the first time in the history of games based on Slugterra, you can independently control the flight of your slug and arrange an exciting battle between two colliding Velocimorphs!
This is the most difficult gameplay mode in Slugterra: Dark Waters, in which our players must continue playing for as long as possible without dying in an uninterrupted session, while the game presents them with increasingly difficult waves of challenges.
This is a great opportunity to test your skills and equipment.
Visually, Survival mode is very similar to the Campaign. But ... No victories ... No losses ... Only your time and the huge number of enemies you killed matters!
Our babyborn novelty from the last major update. This is a classic Player VS Player mode with the ability in real time to fight with absolutely real slugslingers like you from all over the true world.
At this type of gameplay you will dive into a full-fledged third-person shooter with all its features done, including “intelligent” auto-attack system. All you need is to win, increasing your combat rating and remaining a part of the most most grandiouse events in the Underworld — Slugterra Worldwide Multiplayer Battles.
A lot of work has been done already, hundreds of hours spent on development and testing, and there are still many more improvements ahead ... But all of this in order for our game to become great, so that every player can have a good time exploring with our heroes this magnificent Underground World.
