Heroes Realm Slots
If you think of 3 reel slots as traditional games which look and play like the old mechanical devices of old, it is time to think again. Heroes’ Realm takes a 3 reel slot concept, and completely re-imagines it – with an excellent end result. The theme is something like a fantasy novel or Dungeons and Dragons game. Two characters – a huge male barbarian type and petite, attractive and dangerous looking female warrior – are your hosts. Unusually for a 3 reel slot, this game also includes a break out bonus game, where you’ll choose a character to help you fight off monsters!
The introduction video is worth watching – it reminded me of a 2 minute Lord of the Rings battle scene (in a cartoon format). Once you get to the game itself, this looks stunning. The 2 characters are behind the reels, the barbarian to the left and the female warrior to the right. Chains and a spiked ball swing above them. There is only a single row of symbols on a single win-line visible; all 3 spaces are always filled. Symbols themselves look fantastic. These are mostly weapons, with swords, spiked balls on chains and shields the most common and mace and battle axe also appearing. You will also find what looks like water bottle (could be a magic potion) and a treasure chest too. There is a skull symbol, which will trigger the bonus game if you get 3 across the screen.
Thunder rolls in the background while you play. You’ll get a rising and falling sinister sounding tune when you spin the reels. Sounds like swords clashing come as the reels stop, and you’ll get different effects for the different wins too. These come with animations, for example the treasure chest opening. The characters in the background also keep moving while you play, giving this slot a lively feel.
