NetEnt is known for its brand named slots devoted to pop culture phenomena. Street Fighter II: The World Warrior Slot™ is exactly that. One of the best arcade games in history was transformed by the Swedish provider to a slot that promises to become a smash hit.
The new video slot is another Cluster Pays game by NetEnt. The slot mimics the battle mechanics of the original arcade title. The player chooses his favorite Street Fighter and gets ready to confront his opponent. Only this time the player has no control over the outcome of the fight as luck and the spins of the reels will decide the result.
According to the matching symbols of a winning combination, it is determined which of the characters receives a blow to their health meter. The players who lose the fight in the end can save their pride by joining the Car Smash bonus game, while the winners trigger the Beat the Bosses free spins round. In the latter round, the player will come across four bosses with a Multiplier that will increase each the player passes one level.
In order to be announced as the World Warrior Champion, the player must beat all four bosses, a win which will activate an extra cash prize for the player. Even though the slot isn’t as fun or as engaging as the arcade game, nobody can deny that it tries hard enough to give players a sense of entertainment and suspense.
Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games referred to NetEnt’s responsibility of living up to the expectations of the fans of the iconic arcade game of the 90s. He added that the crucial points that needed to be taken care of were the nostalgic feeling of the game plus the element of competitiveness. Mr Upton believes that NetEnt achieved those goals and he expressed his content for the final product.
