Play'n Go loves them a little bit of fantasy from time to time. Cloud Quest is visually very appealing and might be just up your alley if you enjoy slots with a twist. The game's theme is sci-fi mixed with fantasy and it is filled with mythical warriors, mages, wizards, Valkyries, and monsters. It consists of a 5x5 sized grid with no set paylines. The bet can be set between 0.10 cents and 40£/€ from the panel beneath the grid. The idea is to advance from one level to another and thus gain experience, fame, and fortune.
During the game, you're accompanied by a character, that will aid you towards victory with their superpowers. The game also contains a bonus game, that helps you level up. The character changes at random during each round. You'll also see various animations and backdrops for the game's different features. The audio and other sound effects are top notch as well and really pulls you into the game's unique world.
The fantasy theme is heavily present in the icons of the game as well. There's a huge red sword, green daggers, a purple staff, a red shield, green potion, purple spell book and a power stone. Then there are the three heroes: a man, a woman, and a wizard. The wild is a golden icon with a bird on it.
All winning combinations are formed by matching icons diagonally, vertically and horizontally on the grid. Each time a winning line is formed the center icon of the line turns into a wild.
The winning line will also disappear from the grid. When this happens the symbols above the winning line drop down and may create more wins. If there are no more wins you will have to press the blue start button down at the bottom right.
Above the spin button, there is a meter that lights up the more stones you gather. For a combo of three, four or five stones the meter will light up 1, 2 or 3 sections. This activates a spinner. If the spinner lands onto a lit up section the player is rewarded with a random bonus feature.
As the spinner stops on a lit section of the meter, a bonus feature is activated. These features are an x5 multipliers, an Emblem of Endurance, Scatter of Success and a Mark of Multitude. The multiplier explains itself: it multiplies each win 5 times, offering some big sized wins if you're lucky.
The Emblem of Endurance will leave wilds onto the grid. They will only disappear until a combo of three or more is created. Scatter of Success is a feature where all symbols will pay out wins as if they are scatter-symbols. The Mark of Multitude will turn all winning combinations into wilds.
There is also a bonus game to be unlocked, but it does require some luck. Behind the grid, there is the word "BONUS" present, that moves up or down each spin. If the row with the "BONUS" hidden behind it is cleared the game will be triggered.
The bonus game consists of three reels and a monster. You are awarded anything from 5 to 20 free spins. You are then to choose which character (man, woman, wizard) will battle the randomly generated monster. Each outcome of the spins determines if you cause the monster any damage or not. For a combination of three symbols you attack, but if you manage to get three targets in a row on the reels, the monster is killed instantly. You level up during this game. If you manage to defeat all five monsters in the bonus game, you'll be rewarded with a cash bonus, and a multiplier to go with the remaining spins.
If you like RPG-styled games, set in a fantasy setting with brave warriors, warlocks, wizards, and more, you should definitely play Cloud Quest! The game has a lot to offer in style of gameplay and the bonus features it harbors, but it's not for everyone. Beginners might find the game a bit tricky, thus making this a game for more experienced players. The cascading icons can create wins multiple times with only one spin.
Sure getting to the bonus game is tricky and requires luck, but if you're patient, it will unlock and you'll get a chance at leveling up. The game can be played for free, during which you can familiar with the game mechanics, before giving a go and waging money. Step into a fantasy world filled with danger and aim for the clouds!
