By now we’ve come to the informed conclusion that NetEntertainment can do no wrong when it comes to pokies. As far as innovative features, crisp animation and captivating imagery goes this legendary Swedish gaming group stands in a league of its own, and their latest release Steam Tower is testament to this fact.
Steam Tower is NetEnt’s first time dabbling their toes in the steampunk genre which for those not in the know is a kind of hybrid combo of gothic Victorian era industrialisation with modern technology, a subgenre that started in science fiction and literature, mixing the old with the new. Steampunk is no new genre, but it’s only grown in mainstream popularity in recent years so NetEnt were smart to jump on the bandwagon as it certainly makes for intriguing graphics.
Like Microgaming’s popular Castle Builder pokies, Steam Tower is different to a typical slots game in that players set out on a mission and level up in order to score higher rewards. The adventure begins in Steam Tower with players assuming the position of a handsome steampunk gent, a kind of blend between bearded hipster and shabby superhero.
The player is required to climb up the side of the steam tower in order to rescue the princess from the dragon, a terrifying creature and feat of 3D animation. The more you play, the higher you climb, and the higher you climb the more reward you unlock, like free spins and bigger multipliers. There is even the chance to pluck up your courage and steal additional gold coins from under the dragon if you think you can handle it.
Steam Tower is a high quality 3D slots game featuring a 5-reel, 3-row and 15-bet line format. NetEnt’s Chief Product Officer, Simon Hammon sounds as chuffed with the final outcome as we are. Simon said, “Steam Tower is packed full of innovative developments and progressive features that NetEnt are renowned for. The Victorian era is synonymous with advancement and improvement, which reflects our own mission to drive the online casino market forward.” Hear, hear!
Upcoming NetEnt releases for 2015
After being crowned with the International Gaming Awards highly sought after Slot Provider of the Year award, this latest unveiling comes after NetEnt already entered 2015 on a high note with such recent releases as Jack and the Beanstalk, The Invisible Man and Tornado Farm Escape. Steam Tower has been highly anticipated as word on the street was that it was set to be one of the most visually stunning 3D pokies we’ve yet to see, and the rumours weren’t wrong. Setting a very high standard for themselves, we’re sure NetEnt will only continue to raise the bar with such releases expected in 2015 as a Guns N Roses pokies plus a collaboration with Universal Studios to bring Dracula to the reels.
