This is simply a solid 20- liner that has something for everyone (ok, most), yet what it does, it does well. Again, credit to the audio design. Graphics are good if unspectacular, but convey the theme brilliantly all- round and is unlike most of the sh-.... 'rubbish' churned out by the big 3 :cool:

20- liners are becoming antiquated, but give me a good one of those any day over 243 or Megaways. The only concession I'll make is for THAT game but in general rolling reels- type games kinda blow.

A well- crafted game wins over some bug- ridden hot mess like Bonanza any day :D

Looks Okay.

But without sounding nasty apart from the bit where if a wild lands between wild reels it gives a respin the actual 3 bonus rounds have nothing original in them.

Several games have at least one bonus round similar to each of those 3 bonus rounds. Not being negative i will try it but i do not really see anything in the bonus rounds that's new and jumps out making you think WOW.

It's alright saying it is HV and can pay 5000x plus. But we all know that means the odds of hitting it are next to zero and to expect mostly poor paying rounds.

Point taken, but aren't we all bemoaning Netent for being afraid of other ideas from other developers? Play'n Go shamelessly ripped BoRe for their BoD slot and it was voted best new slot of 2016 on here! Bonanza copied the Gonzo's Quest cascading symbols format and Cleopatra 2 increasing multiplier in FS. BTG have used BoRe too as a basis for their new Book Of Gods slot but reworked it in their own inimitable style. If more slots DID use proven popular mechanics then we'd be grizzling a lot less (especially me!) on here.
Remember, any recipe is only as good as the ingredients...

Well asking players for their opinion is certainly a good thing. Good job here guys.

Personally I like the potential and originality. Visually it's well done but I'm not a big fan of a dark theme. I also much prefer simple, easy to differentiate symbols (eg: yellow bells, red 7's, bright gems, etc) but that's just me. I'll give it a shot when it goes live.

This does look like a game that I would try out since I like playing High Variance slots from time to time and it gives the "players a feeling that it has potential" like you said in your Archangels: Salvation slot review when you were criticizing the math model that Netent slots like to use.

:( Sorry. Feel so bad now.

But thought idea was to give feedback. Maybe i should have just said it was brilliant to avoid any chance of getting lynched:eek2:

I'm totally open to criticism Paul so don't worry about it. I realised early on you will never create a game that suits everyone and it's especially hard with an HV game. When it goes live there will undoubtedly be some balance decimation posts LOL. If you want true HV that's what you have to do - many games go with micro-wins to keep you interested and prolong the agony and some people prefer that, I get it. I just didn't want it :D

I also get the point about originality. The game I put forward was an expensive idea so I had some pressure to ensure it wasn't a failure from the off. And I'd never done anything like this before so it was inevitable that I wasn't go deploy a high risk strategy. That said, the Purgatory feature I think would have been original had Bonanza not come out halfway through our development cycle...d'oh! And the "Hell Freezes Over"wild reels feature has a twist with extra wilds and re-spins too so the 5,000x full screen pay could be quite a bit more if you build up to it. I actually got a 5 wild reel spin when testing the final version (with the real RTP) and that made me feel more comfortable with the results but of course that is always going to br a rare occurrence.

I initially asked for 243 ways but also said I didn't want lots of micro wins and I had to make a compromise, hence 20 pay-lines. Got to be honest and say I prefer 243 ways games myself but as Dunover alluded to, it would have meant less high end potential so I took the punt on 20.

I agree with this game being 20 lines. I doubt the wild reel feature wouldve been anything but jackpot-level rare and disappointing in terms of getting up to 4-5 wild reels otherwise. On the issue, I love the potential in ways when youve got some stacks going on first 3 and how it can then go ballistic if you just get more on the next few reels, even if it's low payers. The trade-off is the 3OAK's being drips and that one massive line chase kind of lost (think top paying symbols in Book of Ra). You can make a ways game about chasing high-payers, but it will be more rare to have that "if I had only gotten 1 more I wouldve won big" as even in Rhino you need stacks of the things to win big.

looks very nice , like the Features, but what could be better is the Sound / Music when spinning Inferno Freespin Bonus .... i don t mean the Quality which is perfect i mean what sound/the art of sound its a bit sad and feels like you listening to the same Loop 5 seconds long and repeat all the time.

But thumbs Up good job !! :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
