Warm-up your shield arm and gird your loins for battle – warrior style! Nope, I haven’t had one witchetty grub too many- I’m ready to take on NetEnt’s hotly-anticipated brawl-fest otherwise know as the Conan slot. And you thought Zeus from the Rise of Olympus slot had big pecs? Think again…
Of course, you might ask what the heck this hairy wombat is on about if you missed the 80’s movie of the same name. It was a hard hit to miss starring the bulky Arnold Schwarzenegger in the days before he started his career as a cyborg in the Terminator series (we have a slot for that too). Conan is a game that should bring out out your inner leather-clad fighter. There´s a lot more testosterone going on here than the Maid Marian slot, that´s for sure (mind you that´s worth a look, pretty good game play).
Let’s head in and see what’s going on with those famous pecs.
Look and Feel
You will need your winter gear for this one (I’ve borrowed Uncle Wedston Wombat’s long johns) as the action in the Conan slot takes place in a snowy village. It´s not quite as cold as it is in the North Storm slot (the name´s a giveaway on that one), but it´s close.
The reels are set in a temple made of wood and the vibe is of a world of good versus evil. We’re not in the Sunshine Coast anymore!
This slot’s graphics are something of a showstopper, so take a bow NetEnt. This game boasts plenty of detail to drop you into the mythical world of our warrior pal.
Listen up for the pacey soundtrack which adds to the game’s big action credentials. And there’s some slot gold dust in the form of our hero Conan becoming animated when you trigger the bonus features.
You’ll need to flex those winning muscles over 6 reels, 4 rows and a fun-filled 24 pay-lines.
One thing we should mention is that this game has a pays-both-way mechanic which should make winning combos all the easier.
You will need to fess up and face down a trio of top-scoring icons headed up by Conan himself. Land 5 of our long-haired hero on the reels and you will bag yourself a 6 x your wager payout.
An watch out for his eye-catching sidekick Valeria. And you can’t miss the evil character in this title: the baddie, Thoth-Amon (catchy name, right?). He’s wearing a sheep skull (as you do if you are hell bent on general destruction).
The mid-value icons in this fight-fest are a range of tools and weapons including a grappling hook, a helmet and a sword.
This game has avoided using the face cards of a deck for the lower paying symbols. Instead, you’ll need to look out for a lion’s head, a snake and a bird of prey.
A glowing skull with blue gem eyes and the letter “W” emblazoned on it is the game’s Tower Wild. This icon subs for all symbols except the Scatter. Stay focused though, as this icon lands in the first two reels in the base game but can expand over both reels.
And look out for the Mystery Symbol, a golden snake with a gem eye. This appears on reels 3 and 4 only and can transform into any icon, except the Scatter or Wilds.
And hold on their Wombat fans, there’s only another Wild! Struth, nice one Net Ent, you Swedish legends! This second icon is called the Battle Wild.
When the Battle Wild (a red-eyed skull) lands on the reels 5 and 6 in the base game it expands to take over 3-reel positions – now that could be a nice little earner as well as being a bit spooky right?
Last, but not least, you have a crossed sword and shield with the handy word “Scatter” written across which is your key to the free spins game. Let’s take a look at the extras now.
This game is bursting with extras including spins games which are linked to icons.
Feeling lucky? Then land 3 or more of Scatter icons on the reels and launch the free spins games. Now trigger the choice of several different spin games.
– First up there’s the Temple of Serpents free spins feature that is linked to the Mystery Symbol. This is a medium to high volatility feature.
– Then there’s the dangerous Thoth-Amon Feature connected to a Mystery Multiplier. In this mode mystery symbols are willed onto the reels creating multipliers to hopefully boost your win size.
– Next up, there’s the Walls of Tarantia Feature. This extra is coupled with the Battle Wilds: the Wilds land and expand up to 3 positions wide to generate wins. Cash-o-la!
– And finally, there’s the City of Thieves Feature which links to the Tower Wilds. The special Tower Wilds are live and land on reels expanding both vertically and horizontally. Let the good times roll my Wombat friends.
Altogether Conan slot is a supercharged slot treat with 4 different spins features and looks to stun. What could better than leaping into high adventure NetEnt style?
Score: 4.5 out of 5
Pure rock and roll.
