So what does the Wild Seas game look and sound like? We’ll answer that question for you here. When you open the game you are greeted with a really impressive opening sequence. This explains the plot behind the game. An English sea officer and a Frenchman conduct a conversation about the dread pirate Anne Bonny, and how she surely cannot be crazy enough to take them all on. It looks very much like she is. As this dialogue unfolds, you’ll see an animated sequence of waves and ships that looks impressive.
When the game itself begins, the reels are set in front of a map of what could be the Caribbean. It looks very much like the kind of locale where pirates would hang out anyway. The graphics are fresh and brightly coloured, giving the game a light-hearted feel that is perfectly complemented by the cartoon-style graphics of the symbols on the reels. The musical soundtrack is adequate, but never as impressive as the music on other ELK games like Taco Brothers, or Playson’s Chicago Gangsters.
Have You Heard the One About the Englishman, the Frenchman and the Portuguese?
The graphics on the reels are of high quality. All the symbols are rendered in a cartoon style that features plenty of detail. The level of detail helps to give each character on the reels a sense individuality and charisma that we applaud. One of the high-value symbols you will see is Anne Bonny herself. She was a real-life pirate, though we doubt that she looked as clean-cut and cheeky looking as her brunette representation looks here.
The other symbols on the reels include 3 sea captains. One is dressed in red, one in blue and one in green, and they have different values. Each also has its country of origin’s flag on their hat. So we have a sneering Englishman, a superior looking Frenchman and a wild-looking Portuguese type, all of him is dressed in impressive headgear. They are the naval skippers who have been tasked with capturing Anne Bonny.
Each of the pirates commands one of the fleets of ships that appear in the bonus feature. The game’s lower value symbols are copper, silver and gold coins. There is no scatter symbol in the game. The Wild Seas logo functions as the game’s wild symbol and also triggers the bonus feature. We’ll take a closer look at this in the next section of this Wild Seas slot review.
