Play’n GO have released their first sequel title of 2021 today, with the announcement of their slot, House of Doom 2: The Crypt.
A sequel to 2018’s House of Doom, this time around the music for the game is provided by emerging rock band The Crypt and four of their songs; I love the Darkness, Mistress of Fire, Metal Priestess and Into the Crypt, are featured during gameplay.
House of Doom 2: The Crypt is the supplier’s first music slot sequel, which is fitting because it is the follow up to their very first collaborative music slot House of Doom. A collaboration with Swedish doom metal band Candlemas, House of Doom was a successful start into what has become a popular section of games for Play’n GO.
Over the past two years, titles like Annihilator, Testament and Sabaton have all found popularity with fans of music slots and heavy metal music alike.
This latest release seems to be another hit, with the thumping soundtrack accompanied by several great aspects, including expanding wilds multiple balance saver features, which can combine during the game!
Martin Zettergen, CPO of Play’n GO, says that the secret to a great music slot is not relying just on the band to draw in players:
“Some slots based around bands have no effort put into gameplay. They’re relying on the fanbase to play the game purely because they recognise the faces.
You need to make sure that it would still be a game that players would enjoy if you stripped away the slot’s band theme. That way, it keeps players entertained and appeals to people that might not necessarily be fans of the music.
It’s about giving MORE than just a gimmick.”
House of Doom 2: The Crypt is available to play from today.
