NetEnt, one of the most prominent names in the iGaming sector, are enjoying a fantastic 2020 in terms of the content they have developed. And, they are back with another superb release in May 2020. Street Fighter II: The World Warrior is an online slot everyone has been waiting for, and it joins NetEnt’s successful range of branded games.
The Good Old Days
As it is a branded slot, and NetEnt know how important authenticity is to players; they go with the retro look and feel in this release. Street Fighter II: The World Warrior takes inspiration from the arcade game which hit the market in 1991. So, it delivers a good dose of nostalgia. When you think of Street Fighter, you think of its original visuals and gameplay. As these combined made it what it is, so props to NetEnt for staying true to the game.
Everyone To Enjoy
Another area where NetEnt excel is they know the market, and the players who spin the reels of their games. So, betting per spin on this release starts at just 10p. The upper limit is £700, making it the ideal range for a broad audience. Punters can enjoy the game in all its glory on a variety of devices too; with support for desktop, smartphone, and tablet in place.
Street Fighter II – The Game
When the game begins, like the original version, punters will select the character they want to play with for the round. And, like the original, each player will come with their unique advantages. In this case, it relates to wild symbols – where they appear, how many of them there are and if they are stacked.
The Wild Gauge
To activate the modifier that comes with a player mentioned above, punters must fill the Wild Gauge. For this to happen, enough clusters involving high-value symbols must be collected. The more a punter picks up, the quicker the meter will fill; unlocking the modifier when the meter reaches the top.
Battle Round Feature
NetEnt also includes a Battle Round feature, where a fighter must take on an opponent. If the player sees their fighter win, they will head to a bonus game where they must hit cars to win a prize of up to fifteen times their stake. Losing the fight will see the feature end.
Winning the fight is the ultimate goal as free spins will trigger and lead to a game called Beat The Boss. The aim is to make it through as many rounds as possible, with increasing multipliers available along the way. The top prize is a 100x the stake payout, but a punter must reach the end of the feature.
One Of The Best
As far as branded slot games go, this is one of NetEnt’s top releases in our opinion. The way they stay true to the authenticity is the winner for us, with the instantly recognisable visuals and gameplay taking us back to the good old days. If you were around in the Street Fighter era, don’t miss out on this.
