Have you ever wondered what would happen if the zombie apocalypse were to break out at a highschool dance social? Well developer Saucify has, and even has the answer to that question! The party would continue on into the night! Picture a Michael Jackson’s Thriller kind of situation and that’s what’s happening here.
If you’ve stayed away from zombie themed video slot games before because they were too scary or horrifying then this might be the slot that gets you to try them out. Not only is it not too spooky but it’s also incredibly funky! You can dance those fears away.
Dead Beats is not only a clever play on words, but also a fun and unique direction to take the zombie horror theme. Let’s take a look and see what else has been changed up for this video slot, and if we happen to get bitten, let us dance the night away!
Theme & Symbols
The theme is fun and unique, opting to divert from the usual horror fare that zombies inspire. This time around the antagonists are more lighthearted and just want to break it down.
The grid is situated in the middle of what looks to be a haunted wood, there is a fence set up to either keep something in or out. While the background is quite dark the overall feel of the game still manages to be upbeat and lighthearted.
Being made of old iron, the grid has seemingly been around for a long time. Perhaps the zombies have learned a lot of different dance moves over the years that they’ve been partying.
The soundtrack for a game such as this needs to be spot on in order to sell the whole concept, and Saucify really did a good job. The beats are funky and entertaining and you can really picture zombies having a groovy time to the beats.
Overall, Saucify has created a fun and unique video slot and the visuals as well as the audio go along with it pretty much perfectly.
For low-paying symbols you can expect to see playing card values like J, Q, K and A all given a spooky makeover. These are the icons you’ll be seeing most frequently during your time with the game.
Moving on to the higher paying icons you’ll be seeing a disco ball, some undead feet shuffling on the dancefloor, zombies dancing, a frightened cheerleader and a shield with DB written across it. These are the icons you’ll want to see appear on the grid.
There is a Wild symbol that can appear on the grid. The Wild can substitute for any other common icon in the game, helping you to build winning combos. Should the Wild land on reels 2 or 4 they will expand, taking up the reel. During bonus spins, any Cheerleader symbol that appears will be turned into a zombie cheerleader Wild.
There is also a Scatter icon that can land in the game. Getting enough of these during a single spin will activate a certain gameplay feature.
