Robotnik from Yggdrasil immediately conjured up memories of the main bad guy in Sonic the Hedgehog, but given that we are yet to see any kind of branded action from this developer so far, we knew that the chances of actually seeing something like this were pretty slim. Indeed, Robotnik himself is a little robot that serves as the centrepiece of the action here, with a futuristic theme going on around him. This game actually seemingly works better on mobile devices than online and you can find out exactly why that is the case either by heading to one of the recommended mobile casino apps below or by checking out the full review after the jump.
What to Expect
This game immediately qualifies as being one of the biggest in the Yggdrasil mobile slots range, simply for the fact that it uses four rows of symbols throughout and accompanies them with an impressive forty win lines. If this was a Bally slot, it would all feel pretty standard, but Yggdrasil fans already have a decent reason to check Robotnik out.
What really sets this game apart for mobile players compared to their online counterparts is the fact that there is only one feature, and it happens often enough on the board that players need not worry about waiting around to make the most of their gaming session. Specifically, the feature involves sticky wilds, although there are two different types to look out for. The first wild is a standard one and it can land either in its regular form, or with a three times multiplier attached. Robotnik himself can also appear on the board and he too will serve as a wild when he lands.
No matter which type of wild you are using, the ultimate goal is to make the best use of the free respins that come with them. Just one is required to get the action rolling, and as long as you land more wilds on these respins, the spins will keep on coming.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
Even with twenty symbols in view as opposed to the conventional fifteen, what holds Robotnik back from being truly outstanding is the fact that the wilds simply do not appear as often as we would like. We have played games where wilds are a rarity, but when they are integral to the bonus action, we would like to see more than we are treated to here. It also has the side effect that even when you do get the respins active, keeping them going is a task in itself. The game follows a similar concept to the likes of Starburst and Joker Pro, both from NetEnt, but it is not quite on their level in terms of the overall quality and we can sadly only tentatively recommend Robotnik to players with plenty of patience.
