In recent months, most online casinos saw their gaming portfolios accommodate slots dedicated to famous superhero of American comics. Playtech and Cryptologic are the 2 software developers who have agreements with Marvel in order to publish comics slots such as Hulk. Microgaming, meanwhile, has only introduced one character in respect of comics; Hellboy, who belongs to the Dark Horse Comics brand. Apart from its theme, this game does not have revolutionary features but will entertain comic book fans with its interesting theme, great graphics across 5 reel with three squares each.
Features and Bonuses of Hellboy
Offered at 32Red Casino, this beautiful game is obviously based on the stories of the well-meaning monster whose real name is Anung Un Rama. Like all other comic book themed online slots, Hellboy visually pleases. Dominated by the colours black and red, the drawings have thick black outlines, and are the real deal in terms of resemblance to the comic book saga.
Conventional symbols range from 9 to ace and include some characters from the comic book universe. The reels feature a set of characters we find in Hellboy; players will find some of the more popular characters such as Johann Kraus and Abe Sapien as well as Hellboy and the Hellboy logo which is the game’s Wild symbol. The Wild replaces all other symbols except for the Scatter and has the ability to double the winning combinations in which it is included.
The Punch Scatter symbol activates a bonus game set in ”Underworld,” where the main character evolves. A second completely random free spins function, is also part of this game. If you manage to get 3 to 5 Punch Scatter symbols anywhere on the screen on a single spin, this will activate the bonus round.
You will play as Hellboy, and will have to participate in a multiple choice game. At each of the four levels that make up this game you have to choose from several accesses, either doors or tunnels. And here the rule is simple: if you come across a character, you win all the level prizes; if you find a creature, you win a prize and go to the next level. Finally, if you come across a closed tunnel, the bonus ends. If you manage to complete all 4 levels, you will receive a treasure, which will earn you an extra prize.
The free spins feature is special in that it is activated at random. Thus, no symbol triggers it, and it will surprise you when it arises. This feature, also called Supermode, is not unlike the Microgaming game Tomb Raider: Secret of the Sword. During these 10 free spins, Hellboy himself will place Wild symbols on the screen. He will place up to 3 of these symbols and they will remain for the duration of the free spins. The bonus feature ‘Underworld can not be triggered during the free spins.
Frequent players might not be interested in playing Hellboy on a regular basis; these might find more complex slots such as Microgaming’s Hitman and Mega Moolah more worthwhile. However, novices will be interested by this game as it offers great graphics and a rather simple gameplay, as well as fans of the saga or any comicbook fan in that matter.
