Have you ever wanted to experience the thrill and the rush of the old school styled fruit based video slot games from back when? Well now you’re able to thanks to Skywind Group.
They’ve created a title that pays homage to the original slot machines of old while managing to keep things fresh, fun and engaging for the player.
While the look might be the same, there’s a whole lot of things that are new to this title. Let’s have a look and see exactly how Skywind Group software was able to pull it off and whether or not they did a good job doing it.
Theme & Symbols
The theme of this title is pretty straight forward. It’s based on the old school style of slot games. Lots of bright colours and easily recognizable symbols.
The play grid is suspended in incredibly hot flames with sharp colours that stand out and draw attention to where it needs to go. While the background and reels might be simplistic, it lends itself to the overall feel of the game.
There isn’t a permanent back track that plays alongside the game but rather a track that plays when the game is paying out a win. It’s rather unfortunate because the song that plays is quite nice and fits very well. The sound effects are sharp and concise.
The artwork of the symbols is clear and well done, you won’t struggle to identify anything that appears on your screen when you press the button to spin the reels.
Animation quality is also very impressive. The reels spin smoothly and there is nothing in the game that is jarring or difficult to watch.
All the classic symbols make a return in this title. The symbols that you’ll be seeing appear during your spins include Cherries, Oranges, Lemons, Plums, Grapes, Watermelons and the famous 7.
There is a Scatter symbol that is represented by a yellow star on a red background. These icons play a specific role during main and bonus gameplay.
