A Display of Wonder
The design of this game is quite breathtaking, featuring a woman with her sword atop the reels, her silken clothes rippling in the gentle breeze. And speaking of the reels, there are five of these in total, which are joined by four rows. It’s here that you’ll discover the various different icons of the game, which begin with the often seen A, J, K, Q and 5 symbols. These are joined by five others, which are higher paying symbols of some of the village’s warriors. There’s the man dressed in his orange monks robes, another who appears to be on horseback with his pointed hat on, and a third of a woman in pink silks preparing herself for battle. The final two comprise a woman in full golden armour, and a second female in blue silk, her sword at the ready.
As well as this layout and symbols, the game has had a total of 40 different bet lines incorporated into it, but if you’re the kind of person who prefers to customise such a section, High 5 Games have made this very possible in Silk and Steel. And what’s more, you’re able to easily adjust the value of the wager that you place per spin, with a range of between $0.01 and $10 per active line able to be chosen from. Should you have all 40 pay lines activated and you decide to push the bet level up, you’ll be able to place a maximum overall wager of $400 per spin.
Prepare for War!
The upcoming battle will be a tough one, and perhaps could be too much for you and your compatriots. However, when all seems lost, look to the special features that have been incorporated into this game for assistance. These exist first of all in the form of the ‘Super Stacks’ feature. With this, the reels contain stacks of mystery symbols. These will transform into any of the standard icons, including the game’s wild and scatter symbols. All stacked mystery symbol positions on a reel transform into the same icon.
As noted, there is a wild icon integrated into the game as well, and this is represented by the word ‘WILD’. As such, it will stand in for all other icons on the reels, except for the scatter, in order to form a winning combination. Should five of them appear on a winning pay line, you’ll receive a maximum pay out of 1,500 coins.
And speaking of the scatter symbol, this is represented by the icon of the map, which is where you will work out your strategy. You’ll need to spin 12 of these across reels two, three and four in order to have the freespins round activated. However, when you do, you’ll receive a total of seven freespins. This round also includes the ‘Super Stacks’ feature mentioned previously, where at the start of the round, you’ll pick a bonus option to reveal one of the character symbols.
Strength in Unison
Going to war against an oncoming army has never been as thrilling as when you’re playing this game. It has some wonderfully high quality graphics, and game play is thoroughly entertaining. A great addition to High 5 Games’s portfolio of products.
