About the Game
The game features a hauntingly beautiful soundtrack playing softly as you spin the reels. The aesthetic is mostly dark colours. The background has a rocky looking planet-scape, a glowing volcano and mountains in the distance. Game symbols are designed to look likespace-themed creatures and objects.
Symbols are paired up as low value and high value,e.g.a low valueobjectblue orb of water is paired up witha blue water creature which is also the lowest value creature.Other symbols follow different colours and also represent different elements. Purple represents air, green stands for earth and golden yellow for fire.
- Wild symbol- The wild symbol in the game is a metallic box. It only appears on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. It can replace any other symbols.
- Avalanche Meter- Whenever a win is formed, the symbols explode and vanish leaving room for new symbols to fill. When the new fall mode starts, the avalanche meter fills up by 1 colour according to the current element round. When you have gone through all 4 elements meaning the Avalanche Meter is now full, one of the 4 Free Fall modes is activated and a bonus game begins.
- Bonus game- There are 4 bonusgames each representing one of the elements;water, air, fireand earth. The bonus game you get to play depends on the element that activated the round. Each of them is as good as the other and offer 10 free spins and different wild bonuses.
