Review of Rocket Returns Mobile Slot by William Interactive

Rocket Returns Slot - Artwork8-bit nostalgia seems all the rage these days, considering that the 80's occurred 30 years ago now. William Interactive's online slot Rocket Returns certainly puts across that arcade feel with its pixelized firework displays and bright colours. But its aesthetic isn't the only thing on offer. The unique diamond-shaped reel with hexagonal symbols really makes this slot stand out and then some, providing a quirky yet fresh take on the design of video slots.

rocket-returns-ipad-2Let's be frank here — the gameplay for Rocket Returns is addictive, so addictive in fact that we are pretty sure most if not all players will be playing it for hours on end. Its simplicity carries so much charm that it's impossible not to like.

This is largely thanks to the unusual structure of the reel — 1x2x3x2x1 — which only adds to the charm. The minimalism of the whole thing was a wise choice made by the developers as your eyes aren't bombarded by a ton of features or flashing lights (ironic considering the theme).  Some may think the game as incomplete as a result of these lack of features however the addictive gameplay overshadows this flaw and then some.

As mentioned, the features in Rocket Returns aren't all that extravagant but our philosophy here at Droid Slots is that less is more. In the case of this particular slot, two features feels enough. One or two more wouldn't hurt but more than that would definitely count against the game's enjoyment. The two features in this game are:

Wilds: The wild symbols in this game are sticks of dynamite and replaces all other symbols on the reels except bonus. This one is likely to show up in the centre of the game reel (reel 5) and comes with up to 5x multiplier.

Free Spins Bonus: This firework symbol appears only on reels 1, 5 and 9, and when it does, it gives you 5 free spins, which is awesome. You can also get +1 free spins for every bonus symbol that shows up during the free spins which makes it double awesome.

So not a lot going on but the features that are there pack a punch. Minimalism wins again.

rocket-returns-logoAt first glance, Rocket Returns might appear to be an outdated game with jolty graphics but when players actually play the game they'll be delighted to see a very smoothly operating game. 80's arcade it made be (with elements from classics like Tetris) but it is definitely 2016 graphics and the colourful sound only assists in that feel.

mMillennials will get a nostalgia trip indeed! But even those who never grew up with arcade games will enjoy this, we reckon.

Diamond-Shaped Reel

It's been noted on several times in this review, but the unusual layout is probably the most unique and definitely the game's best feature. Providing a creative and fresh design, players will feel entertained by this alone if not by the actual gameplay and cool features. The hexagonal symbols are also pretty special and they work so well as opposed to the usual, conventional squares.

Droid Slots' Stamp of ApprovalSo, a little unconventional but Rocket Returns Online Slot is a blast! Its simplicity makes it unbelievably addictive and the features, though minimal, are rewarding and just enough to keep player satisfied. In case you haven't figured it out: we love this game! We hope this inspires other developers to create more interesting slots in the near future and not just over-stuff them with overwhelming bonuses.
