Free Play of Flame Busters Slot Machine
Thunderkick’s game is actually called Roasty McFry and The Flame Busters, but the developer shortened it to make it easier to remember. The theme in this particular game gives us the heroic firefighters that are trying to save a couple of characters that are living in a building that is on fire.
The unusual part is not exactly the part with the fire rescue, and it has more to do with the design style that was chosen, that of an 80s arcade game.
The 8 bit graphics seem to be in fashion these days, and I’ve seen multiple games that sport them. There are even the basic sounds that you would have in a game of the time.
As for the symbols that Flame Busters shows off, those are with fire, with W logos, alarm bells, a fireman rescuing a cat, a wizard, a one-eyed pirate, a robot, a blue goat and coins that sport the poker logos on them. Overall, a very weird combination of characters is shown on those symbols, but it works for this particular slot.
Thunderkick is still considered a young and small company, even though it has a couple of years already since they launched.
They don’t have as large of a collection as other developers that started at the same time, but I’d say that the quality of their slots is much better on average. The graphics and the features are the ones that contribute to this impression.
How To Play It
Thunderkick is the sort of company that prefers to use fixed values for the wagers, and it doesn’t even let us know how much the lines are getting.
Granted, it’s more difficult with slots like these, with ways to win, but it still prefers to show us directly the prizes that we can win, with the current wager. These wagers have a minimum possible value of $0.10, and a maximum one of $100.
The layout is the one with 5×3 reels and with 243 ways to win, which seems to be increasingly common lately. The Spin and bet options are on the right, while the left side options let you into the paytable and rules areas. It’s a mobile friendly design, as all slots from Thunderkick seem to be.
The Fire symbols, which will take over symbol positions during your spins, will be part of the mystery feature. These symbols are all turned into a single random symbol, so you get a better chance at forming a paying combo thanks to them. They can’t be turned into scatters or wilds in this case.
Speaking of the wild, it’s a simple W logo that you may use as a substitute for a regular icon, and that’s about it. There is no grand prize to get from it.
The red Alarm Bell is the scatter, and the one that feels more interesting. Its appearance in three to five spots will grant you 10 to 20 free spins.
You can collect scatters to advance further into the building and to unlock the new floors. Lower value symbols are gradually transformed into Fire Mystery symbols, as you unlock new floors.
With some help from the Fireman symbol, a payout of $1,000 can be won by the player, though the wager needs to be at $100 for that to happen.
Flame Busters is an exciting new game, with a retro design that I’m sure many will remember fondly, but also with a unique set of features.
