Listen to the Gods
When you load the game up, you’ll find that it’s presented on a five reel and three row interface. This should be a fairly familiar layout to regular video slot gamers, and it’s within these reels that you’ll find the game’s various different icons. These start with the frequently seen A, J, K, Q and 10 symbols, again providing a familiar offering. These are joined by three different additional and more thematic icons, which are present in the shape of a red hot flaming phoenix, a white horse with fiery mane and tail hair, and finally, the shot of Hyperion himself.
As well as the game’s reels, rows and icons, you’ll find that Microgaming have also included a total of 15 different bet lines in Titans of the Sun as well. These have been fixed in position, so you’re not able adjust them in any way. However, you can alter the amount of the wager that you place, and this is done firstly by changing the coin size between $0.01 and $1, while the amount of these coins wagered per bet line are changeable between one and 10. This allows you to place a maximum overall wager of $150 per round.
This game provides a great theme, so you’ll find that there are also some wonderful special features included alongside it. These begin with the wild symbol, which is represented by the game’s logo, and as a wild symbol it will substitute for all others on the reels, with the exception of the scatter icon. If five of the wilds show up on a winning pay line, you stand the chance of winning up to a maximum pay out of 50,000 coins.
The game’s scatter symbol is represented by the male and female gods floating in the sky. As scatter icons, these will pay out wherever they show up on the reels, and they multiply your total wager by a specific amount. If five come in to view, you’re able to receive a maximum pay out of 15,000 coins. Whenever three or more show up, you’ll receive a total of 15 freespins, and freespins can be re-triggered during the round.
One feature that you’ll see while spinning the reels of the main game is the ‘Stacked Mystery Symbols’. These are shown in the form of a golden sun icon, and when they do show up, they’ll transform into any high or low symbol. Meanwhile, if they appear in the freespins round, they can transform into any high, low or wild symbol, ensuring you have the chance of forming multiple wins.
Feel the Will and Power of Hyperion
This game presents players with a very nicely themed product, taking on the task of offering up icons based on Ancient Greek mythology, and doing so in a very high quality way. The special features included are nicely integrated, especially the unique mystery symbols, it’s just a bit of a shame that Microgaming couldn’t come up with a more appropriate piece of music to add to it as well. However, this aside, it’s a well designed and very playable game.
