I remember somewhere in this thread's inception, or round about this time, the talk being all about that chimp game.

When that turned out to be a crock of shite, it kind of marked the end of their heyday for me. Haven't played any of their 'new' titles since

Just my observation, but Netent became somewhat of an enimaga after 2018,
After playing and seeing so many of their titles through the bandits videos and VS FRs.

They seem be getting rid of many of the classics in favour of the tripe i have witnessed in the last few years bar Vikings, then finding out they have reconfigured some classics for a lower RTP.

It's Outrageous whats going on in all sectors of Society.

I found their pulling of older titles most unsavoury. The likes of Trolls, Muse, Scarface, South Park and so forth.

In its stead they gave us Planet of the Chimps and Scruffy Duck, not to mention a bouncy-castle version of DOA.

And their butchering of Twit Spit is felony-worthy

I care not to mention those Scruffy titles again.

South Park, Scarface and such you can't blame on NetEnt. Those are licensing deals. The deal expires, the games must be removed. Simple. Unfortunate, but simple.

I'm annoyed they keep removing old games that are their own games. There was that dragon volcano game, Egyptian Heroes, Lost Island seems to be removed now as well. They used to have a jackpot game with fishes on it, ran on 1€ bet. Loved that game (totally has nothing to do with me winning the JP on that). They also had the ... Wonders jackpot games (Tiki Wonders for example).. those are gone now too.

I don't get it. What excuse there is for removing games like that? They own the intellectual rights to those games so that's not the reason. The game is just a few soundbytes and graphic files, so it shouldn't be taking space on the servers either. So then, why?

Maybe they were not popular enough to warrant a html5 remake.

I would love to se Demolition squad and lost island make a comeback tho.
Thief aswell.
There was a another robot game that you could play with a bunch of different line-setups.
Dont remember what i was called, but it went from i think 9 lines all the way up to 243 ways.

Also there was a jackpot game with a little space guy that i cant remember the name for.
Think the basegame played like gonzo, and the bonus worked kind of like how pachinko machines work.

That was Cosmic Fortune.

I didn't know that was withdrawn... seems like NetEnt have withdrawn more games than some other providers have ever produced! :eek2:
Mostly ones I likes playing, even though other players must not have e.g. Groovy 60's (and it's 2 clones), Attraction, Frankenstein, South Park, Evolution :mad:, Aliens, etc, etc... :(

I wasn't even aware they'd pulled Demolition Squad, surely one of Netent's greatest

Nor Cosmic Fortune, that at least seemed fairly original (back when Netent used to innovate)

Public Inquiry please!

Yeah, i dont really understand it either.
I was under the impression that slots like Lost island, wonky wabbits, thief, demolition squad etc were quite popular ones.
And i cant imagine it takes all that much manpower to convert them to html5.

Does anyone remember what the other robot slot was called?
The one where you could play either lines or 243 ways.
I think it had expanding wilds in the bonus.

Honestly netent was in the beginning the only provider I played. This was 10 years ago. Now I stay away from Netent as much as possible. Their games with Max x400 or x500 play like high volitile slots except the big win parts that comes in once in a while. Well yeah big win as in 15 euro on 1 euro bet but others have that too.
