7th April, 2015 - Leading game developer Play'n GO challenges online players to sharpen their virtual swords and arrows and join the magical gathering of wizards and warriors in its newest video slot: Tower Quest . The game engages players in a heroic five-reel battle to defeat the evil wizard. The slot's colourful theme lends itself in particular to fans of fantasy trading-card games.
Along Tower Quest 's 20 fixed paylines, players align friends and foes – from fiery dragons to ferocious orcs. The Dark Tower rises as an imposing wild symbol, covering three positions on a reel to help guide players to greater glory and riches. With each spin, the player can collect vials of two powerful potions scattered about the reels. These can be used to unlock a sequence of five free spins or a magical re-spin whenever the player needs it most. The more potion the player amasses, the greater the potential rewards when the player ultimately initiates the re-spin or free-spin sequence.
When the evil wizard glares menacingly from any three positions on the reels, the bonus battle begins. The quest is to slay the evil wizard, reducing his health to nil, before the player's own health gives out. After selecting an avatar, the player rolls the dice to determine the three cards that will comprise his or her initial band to fight the wizard's multi-eyed monsters, manticores and other menacing minions. Each warrior's attack strength and health value shown on the card are pitted mathematically against those of the corresponding enemy. Players can unlock their warriors' special abilities and deal extra damage to the enemy by rolling doubles or triples. There are consequences after each head-to-head battle, and only one leader can live to take the Tower and tell the tale. Players can win up to 500 times their bet when the cards are stacked in their favour.
Martin Zettergren, COO Play'n GO, said: "Tower Quest sets new heights in online slots," expresses Martin Zettergren, Chief Operating Officer at Play'n GO. "Our team has built yet another winner by paying attention to all the small details. Dramatic background sounds work in harmony with the game's awe-inspiring artwork and outstanding bonus round to make Tower Quest the slot to tower above all others for some time to come."
