Never ones to miss a trick, slots developer Play ‘n’ Go are gatecrashing the smartphone party with their own online slot featuring – you guessed it – ninjas and fruits.
Ninja Fruits is a 5 reel, 15 pay-line slot with betting starting at just $0.01. On-screen everything is presented in a bright ‘n’ breezy cartoon style, with lots of nicely-rendered drawings of ninjas, old masters, Geishas, and an array of ninja weapons including a samurai sword and shuriken – plus a tonne of fruit. There’s a nice Manga-esque sequence whenever a winning combo is achieved – fruit is slashed in half and sword-wielding heroes parade across the screen – and the Japanese music is great.
The grey-haired old Master acts as the game’s Wild, and substitutes for all symbols other than the Scatter. Five of him and you’ll bag the 5,000-coin jackpot. The shuriken throwing star symbol acts as the Scatter, meanwhile. Here you’ll be transported to the ninja’s training den as you attempt to slash a selection of fruit with some well-aimed ninja stars. Different fruit reveals a different win – up to 150x your bet – and keep throwing until you miss.
That’s not all on the bonus front, however. Get three geishas on the reels and you’ll be awarded 5x your total bet plus free spins. But we’re not finished – get more geishas during free spins and she will reveal an extra Scatter symbol that comes into play during your session.
Oriental-themed slots are always popular with the masses, and by targeting fans of well-received mobile apps like Fruit Ninja, Play n Go could be on to a winner. The graphics and sound are clean and crisp, the free spins and ‘Click Me’ game are a nice addition to the Wild, and overall it’s a decent effort by Play n Go. Fans of the excellent Japanese-themed Asian Beauty from Microgaming will find much to admire here, and RTG’s foodie slot, Wok & Roll mixes the food and Asia theme in a similarly humorous way.
Now, how long before we get an Angry Birds slot?
