Ever since the King Kong movie was released in 1933, followed by the Godzilla movie that was released in 1954, the theme of giant scary creatures destroying peaceful megapolises have been ever-present in the action movie, comic books and video games. The horror of neigh-invincible creatures ruining buildings and killing thousands is a very good choice for thriller and action games. However, the City Crushers video game, released by the Merkur studios, is an example of very different genre.
In fact, this game is a slot machine, where you can gamble for real money. Moreover, contrary to most other games, where players have to somehow stop the invasion, in this game you are a part of the team of destructors. In order to bring the joy of destruction closer to you, this game needs neither download nor registration. So you can start your demolition spree right away.
Gameplay and Prizes
The value of the Jackpot in City Crushers is relatively high and is 1,000,000. In order to claim it, players have to spin 5×3 reels with 10 unadjustable winning lines. There is a simple auto start mode in this game that spins the reels automatically until turned off.
The background of City Crushers is drawn to represent a peaceful city with lot of skyscrapers. Even while a few non-thematic symbols (namely, King, Queen and Ace of poker deck) can be found in symbols set, most of them well fit the city-destroying theme. Themed symbols include a jeep, a ship, a house, a bank building and the portraits of three monsters that include King Kong, Godzilla and Cthulhu. These symbols are paying the most among the regular winning symbols. The game graphics are great and the overall visual style of the game is very funny and full of drive.
Features and Bonuses
Unlike most other Merkur games that include only one bonus feature, City Crushers contain way more of them. There is a wild symbol in this game that represents a portrait of scared woman. Contrary to most other wild symbols in different slot machines, it has its own value and can form winning combinations by itself. Moreover, it pays the biggest value among all of the games symbols. In addition, the City Crushers slot contains a scatter symbol.
It looks like a yellow sign with a monster picture and bullet holes. Collecting 3, 4 or 5 of these scatters the player will get with 12, 25 or 50 bonus rounds. When these free spins are triggered, the game background becomes shaded in red, and the player is offered with a choice. He/she can choose one of the three monsters, and after free spins end, he receives additional bonus based on the number of selected monster symbols that appeared on screen during these free spins.
