Who knows if the TMZ type spectacle of a trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard meant that Captain Jack Sparrow brought down the Black Pearl and the people’s interest in pirates with it. Jude Law is apparently doing what he can to restore the reputation of badass pirates by starring as Captain Hook in the upcoming Peter Pan & Wendy movie but is it enough?
It looks like Play ‘N GO is ready to pull its weight for the good cause because they have just set sail with a pirate adventure of its own – Captain Glum: Pirate Hunter.
The Cannons Are Loaded With Features
If an epic adventure filled with pirate banter, broadside cannon fire, permanent wilds, Free Spins and Treasure Hunts, I suggest you keep reading and find out all about the latest and hottest action on the Seven Seas.
Incoming – Heavy Clouds
Fighting is rough in general but to do it on the ocean is a whole different story. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I clicked on Captain Glum: Pirate Hunter and followed the animated intro until the end.
One of the first things I noticed was of course the heavy clouds covering parts of the reels as you can see in the image below.
Is it off putting? Au contraire, it made me curious about what Play ‘N Go had in store for us. The graphics might be a bit too cartoony for me but it wasn’t at all as distracting as it can be in other games.
Use the Permanent Wild to Your Advantage
The second thing that caught my attention was the golden ship wild that kept moving around with each spin. You won’t find a lot of slots with a Permanent Wild but what a great feature, adding excitement to every spin.
Here’s a feature that is randomly activated whenever you land at least one scatter. One of the scatters is then randomly selected (see the red target in the image above) and the Permanent Wild will make its way there.
During its journey it will leave you a trail of Wilds. How very kind of you, Captain!
Pirate Style Free Spins
When two wooden ships are blasting cannons at each other on the open sea, I’m not sure there can be a winner. If you score 3 scatters, the cannons are about to be lit.
Watch Out for Broadside Fire
During Free Spins, the Pirate Hunter ship at the bottom and the Pirate ship at the top will fire at each other. The goal is to do more damage to your opponent of course but keep in mind that the cannons can take up to 3 spins to reload. I know, I know….old school, right?
If you manage to destroy parts of the ship, the reels can extend up to 5 rows high.
Pirate Hunters vs Pirates
Sometimes you’ll hit symbols and other times you’ll hit the ship and sink them. On the right side you can keep count of the sunken ships, which will add to your score.
Time For A Treasure Hunt
If the Pirate Hunters have a higher score at the end of your Free Spins, you will trigger the next feature which is the Treasure Hunt. Here’s your chance to pick from 3 treasure chests to score a 2x, 3x or 10x multiplier.
Ahoy, Ye Landlubbers!
I had a great time hangin’ with pirates and I managed to scoop up some loot along the way. Play ‘N GO has created a fun game and I think it will be quite popular among players.
Time to set sail!
