It was not all that long ago that we reviewed Natural Powers from IGT for inclusion among the selection here on the site. When we did so, we noted that superheroes are immensely popular right now but that there are only so many licenses to go around. With Playtech covering Marvel and NextGen now doing the DC slots, it has been left to the creativity of the various developers to come up with something that fits the style but still manages to impress. Yggdrasil has come up trumps in that regard with the suitably titles Super Heroes, which may well be one of the best games that they have ever made!
What to Expect
We’ll kick off the heroic action on offer here with the basics, which essentially cover twenty win lines and the same selection of coin bets on each of those lines that players will be used to. Yggdrasil rarely goes huge on their winning combinations but players will at least have a decent idea of what to expect when they get into this one. Winning combinations come along decently fast throughout and Super Heroes includes a wild card too, which covers for any other symbol in winning combinations except for the bonus scatter.
You will not have heard of the heroes on this game before playing it, but you will soon be able to get to know them as they all have their own special feature. Any of the heroes can turn up on the board at any time and will have some kind of effect. We will not go through all of them here, but we would suggest keeping an eye out for Raven, as she can use her weapons to turn between one and four reels completely wild, and Hopper who can summon a meteor storm that will turn any symbol that it hits into more wilds.
The main bonus feature on Super Heroes is the free spins mode and three, four or five scatters in view will lead to the award of four, five or seven free games. It certainly does not make for the longest free spins round in history but each of the heroes are now able to level up each time they appear, increasing the effect of their powers when they next land. It makes for more wilds, bigger multipliers and even guaranteed wins, so the bonus rounds are definitely short, but can certainly be very sweet too.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
Super Heroes may lack the familiar characters and iconic imagery of some of the direct competition, but Yggdrasil has pulled off an exceptionally entertaining game here that players will have no trouble getting used to at all. We would perhaps like to see a few more free spins, but that can lead to characters becoming so powerful that everyone would be playing it! As it stands right now, this is still a solid game that hero fans will love and we are happy to recommend it to our readers.
