At least once in our lifetime we have dreamed of the chance of becoming a hero, specially if it’s someone you care about a lot, even as little kids when they asked us what we wanted to do when we grew up, we always said fireman, policeman or astronaut. Well, NextGen Gaming just made the perfect game for the likes of us; To The Rescue. This five-reel slot is preparing you to embrace the principal role of a firefighter hero while you save lives, you gain money (not as similar as the real life, though).
The situation is a building in flames, and in the 5 reel and 25 payline man screen is where the real action happens. The design is marvelous, NextGen did a fantastic making it beautiful yet comfortable for the eyes.
The colourfulness is breathtaking, while in the background you see a city in ruins with lots of flames and falling bricks, the orange is very tasty and the smoke giving you the idea of the state of destruction this city have, but in the background you see ladders highlighting the braveness and courage of the firefighters in this adverse events.
What We Love
The design is simple perfect, they have incredible designs for the cards, even the typical 9, 10, J, Q, K but this doesn’t stop here, there are common things that a fireman must have in this occasions like a fire extinguisher, a short-handed axe and a fireman spraying a hose, or more detailed like a fire hydrant and the best icon the badge (it can pay up to 5,000, if you are lucky enough)
This game is full of bonuses, scatters and wilds. The ringing bell, the scatter symbol for this title, lets you up to 10 free games, and there is nothing better that trying to earn money for free, but it can also be retriggered at will which leads to a more engaging and dynamic game. The wild is a fireman with a hose, if he appears the plate is set for the bonus round.
The bonus round is incredible, heroic and thoughtful, is a Rescue bonus where you will try to help a children in problem. They give to three chances, with three windows. You have to choose which you are going to make your firefighter action, if you get to save the child the award is huge. Not only the recognition of society for fulfilling your duty, I mean monetary reward. And I’ll give you a little secret: You could earn this in the free spin rounds.
What We Do Not Like
There isn’t much to say in this aspect, the level of detail in every single part of this game is something that is at least, remarkable. Perhaps, that is not made for high rollers or progressive jackpot players. But is not everyone’s cup of tea, I guess.
Without a doubt, this is one of my favorite games of the year. An innovative approach to improve a classic game, with the twist of the bonus round and full of multipliers is a round-up game.
And in a year where most developers have not gone out of their comfort zone this game is a direct hit to the market. The players have been awaiting something more than the classic Caribbean or “static” games, the gamers cry for interaction have been received.
Usually when a company delivers something unique they seem to fail in some point during the creation process, like not spending too much time designing the concept or the layout, but I can’t find any soft points for this title. Is the perfect layout alongside the concept that provides the sense of immersion in the history. Try it out! Good earnings and good times.
