Games with a cartoon-like appearance tend to be a favorite of many players which is why Push Gaming released Ice Breaker, a game filled with colorful fish. It is a 5 reel slot, with 3 rows and 243 ways for the player to land a winning combination. Along with the fun design, there are some pretty awesome features there to entertain. With some great payouts, the game sounds promising.
The providers of the game tried to make a fun game with something for everyone in it. It does have a funny look to it, but it also has a great story behind it, taking the player on an ice fishing adventure.
In the background is a frozen lake with lots of snow and ice on the surrounding hills and cliffs. There is also a tiny cottage looking like the perfect vacation place. The mood is cheerful with the sun shining on the bright blue sky. The scenery changes a bit for the free spins round and takes the player under the icy waters. The graphics are simple but do leave an impression.
The soundtrack is very cheerful with high pitched sound effects that still keep the tension in awaiting the next winning combo. The symbols include the regular colorful royals and 5 different colored fish. The fish are placed in ice cubes that get crushed each time they are part of a winning combination, causing for a great visual effect. A golden clam with a pearl serves as the wild symbol. The game also has a scatter symbol represented by a frozen hammer.
The game has good gameplay as well, where the player can bet a minimum of 0,25 and a maximum of 100 coins per spin. Thanks to the Collapsing Reels feature the payouts are quite frequent and the player can win up to 25,000x the stake in a single spin. Considering that it is a medium volatility game, the 96,79% RTP is set at just the right level and should the two should work well together.
The features of the game are just as fun as the design of it. The game features a clam as the wild symbol that substitutes for all symbols except the scatter represented by a hammer.
That brings us to the Free Spins feature that is triggered when the player lands 3 scatter symbols on the reels. They can only appear on reels 1, 3 and 5. Once the feature is activated, the player gets 6 free spins. There are no royals appearing on the reels during the feature, so the player gets to only land the high paying symbols. Free spins can also be re-triggered by landing another 3 scatter symbols.
The main feature of the game is the Collapsing Reels feature that allows a lot of wins to roll in. Once 2 matching fish symbols appear on one reel, all matching symbols combine into one allowing new symbols to land on the reels.
Overall, the game has impressed. The cartoon-like design might not be for everyone, but for the players who enjoy that type of slot, it is definitely one they should try. It offers pretty funny characters and a really beautiful sight to see. There are not so many features, but they do make the game a lot more fun and most importantly result in some great payouts. The game is definitely worth giving a try.
