Treasure Island Adventure
Island Quest has a clear cartoonish design, with soft colours and a beautiful background landscape. The reels are placed in between a couple of giant palm trees right by the beach, with nothing but a seemingly endless ocean extending all the way to the horizon.
The only find you might need would be a cocktail in your hand, because Island Quest is providing you with all the other ingredients for a perfect vacation. If you don’t mind cute characters and bright colours, this is clearly a slot game worth looking into.
Some Easy Rules
Island Quest is built around a modern gameplay, with 5 reels and 30 paylines to bet on in total. This leaves enough space for a comfortable betting range stretching from 0.30 to 90 credits per turn. Nothing exceptional, but enough to please most players out there. Use the command buttons under the reels to adjust your bet settings freely, and hit the spin button as soon as you are ready to go. Island Quest also includes the ever useful autospin mode.
After playing the game for awhile, we could safely put it in the low volatility category. Each spin in Island Quest has the potential to unlock the smallest payouts, making it very dynamic indeed. On the other hand, you will need more patience and some extra credits on the reels to be able to reach the big wins available all over the island. The paytable itself is filled with symbols illustrating the island life, from exotic seashells and fish to palm trees, bonfires, colourful birds and a friendly-looking turtle, which will be the main protagonist of the game. The top win in the base game is set at a comfortable x500 cash prize.
The Adventure Continues
Island Quest also happens to be quite generous when it comes to bonus features. You can start by looking out for the island map, which is the wild card of the game. This handy little icon will help you create some extra winning combinations in the base game, and you may even be lucky enough to land wild combinations and win up to 10,000 times your current wager, the single highest payout in all of Island Quest. The raft symbols, however, cannot be replaced by can be combined to win up to x2700, and perhaps even some respins.
The main bonus in Island Quest comes with combinations of the game logos. The reels will instantly disappear to uncover a bird’s eye view of the island. Click on the questions marks to reveals trophies that can multiply your wager instantly. You may also gain access to the 2 mini bonus games, Shell Picking and Bridge Crossing, which can unlock some big prizes quite easily as well.
Island Quest is a rather original game in terms of gameplay, thanks to its many unique bonus features and mini game. The absence of a clear free spin bonus also makes it stand apart from the rest of the market a little bit.
That being said, we saw a lot of similarities with Aloha Island from Bally, or Lost Island by NetEnt. While the former shares the same light and sunny atmosphere as Island Quest, albeit with even more paylines available, the latter as a bit of a darker tone that some players might prefer.
Cute and Addictive
Island Quest left a very positive impression on us when we tested it. The basic rules are simple, but the bonus games really give the game a whole new dimension. If you are in the mood for a light slot game, and don’t mind the absence of free spins, then Island Quest is clearly worth a try.
