The story of the phoenix is an incredible tale of rebirth, rising up from the ashes to be born again. There’s a valuable life lesson in that story, one that can really motivate a person and to show them that even when you get knocked down you can get back up again stronger than ever. Developer SimplePlay took the phoenix and made an entire slot game around it, that’s how important it is to them.
We can’t blame them, the phoenix is always depicted as this elegant bird of flames that leaves an egg behind whenever it passes on and is reduced to ashes. All of that imagery is present in this game and it’s a good thing too, as to leave out details like that would be a huge shame.
Read on as we document our time with Myth Of Phoenix. We’ll let you know our thoughts and opinions as well as outline the bonus features and symbols so that you’ll be best prepared for when you decide to give this title a spin.
Theme & Symbols
The word phoenix should already spark an image in your head, a fiery and majestic bird that has feathers that glow warm. SimplePlay had that same image in mind when creating this game. They also took references from pop culture and various stories.
The game takes place in a mountainous area with nothing but giant stone formations to keep us company. The weather here must be quite nice as the surrounding area is nice and green. The regal fire bird of legend flaps its wings and hovers over to the right hand side of the screen, keeping an eye on you and your game. The flames on its wings roar and you’ll occasionally hear its call.
The grid is simple yet defined, there is a very clear pattern that works well for this setting. Being mostly transparent, you’ll be able to see most of the background behind the grid which is a nice touch.
Music and animations are okay, it would appear as though SimplePlay doesn’t like constant background music as it only plays when the reels spin. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it’s just a pity as the music is quite nice and fits the theme incredibly well. The animations that are on display are great, the phoenix is in a state of constant motion which makes the game feel more alive.
In total, the developer of this title did a pretty good job bringing their vision into reality. There are few areas that could improve but it’s nothing that is game breaking.
Playing card values represent the low-paying icons present in this game. Expect to see 9, 10, J, Q, K and A appear quite often on your reels as you make your spins.
Next up are the high-paying symbols, these are all things you might expect to see in a myth about a mighty phoenix. A Scroll, a Pendant, a Phoenix Egg, a Phoenix Chick and of course the Phoenix itself. These are all the icons you’ll want to land as you play.
There are four different types of Wilds that are present in the game. All of them will substitute for common icons in the game, allowing you to build winning combos easier. The Orange Feather Wild will only appear during the base game, the Red Feather Wild will only appear during bonus spins where 4 are selected, the Blue Feather Wild will only appear during bonus spins where 7 spins are selected and the Green Feather Wild will only appear during bonus spins where 10 spins are selected.
The Volcano Scatter will trigger a special gameplay feature should enough of them land during a single spin. This symbol can only land on reels 1, 2 and 3 and if three land they will double your bet.
