When you start playing the Age of the Gods - God of Storms slot you are taken to a lofty perch above an ancient city. From your viewpoint, you can see buildings, city walls and, in the distance, a river and mountains. In front of this backdrop, the reels are set in a stone frame, with the symbols sliding into place on what looks like a surface of stone. The graphics look decent enough, although there is not the same level of detail as you’ll find in more recent slots like Playson’s God of Wild Sea.
The symbols on the reels are fairly detailed and are rendered in a heroic cartoon style that looks pretty classy. The Greek amphora symbol certainly looks impressive, but the characters that are the game’s higher value symbols look a little bit generic. The lower value symbols on the reels are the usual range of numbers and letters. They are golden and look a little bit like Ancient Greek letters, which fits nicely with the game’s theme.
Watch for the Ship in Age of the Gods God of Storms
The 3 characters on the reels are a swordswoman, an archer and a male warrior in golden armour. These might well be representations of gods, but it is hard to tell. There is also an amphora and a sea monster that are pretty valuable. There is a wild symbol that appears stacked. It is simply the word ‘Wild’ so it’s easy to recognise. There is also the ship symbol that acts as the game’s scatter as well as being wild, and this also fills entire reels when it appears. It triggers the Wild Winds feature, something we’ll take a look at in the next section of this review.
The game’s sound effects are basic, but there are some nice ambient sounds that you hear as you play. The wind and the sea, as well as the calls of gulls, sound in the background, and you also hear the creak of your window frame as the breeze blows. There are some nice clicks and whirrs that sound when the reels spin. A little trumpet fanfare plays when you spin wins in, which is quite pleasant. There is no musical theme that you can hear constantly as you play, which will doubtless be a relief to some people.
