With spring well and truly in the air it’s time to head out into the garden – though if you’re not particularly keen on looking after plants and shrubs there’s a much more enjoyable way to get your fingers green.
Blueprint Gaming’s Wild Antics is typical of this small but rapidly-growing studio’s current approach to game design: It’s not only teeming with great features but it looks superb as well. If you enjoyed Antz or It’s a Bugs Life you’ll particularly appreciate the visuals, though all players will find it visually stunning.
Wild Antics is a five reeler with three rows and twenty fixed paylines. It’s set in a beautifully-rendered suburban garden and the reelface is semi-transparent, allowing the background to permeate onto the playing area for extra effect.
and behind the clear reels we can see the tiny/gigantic world in which our protagonists live with huge blades of grass and imposing tree trunks.
High value symbols include ants, ladybirds and snails, whilst the wild symbol is an ant/sunflower combination that substitutes for all others to make winning lines, barring the five bonus symbols – these are the worker ant, soldier ant, colonel ant, queen ant and the aardvark.
Trigger the later anywhere on Reels one and Three along with one of the four ant bonus characters on reel Five and you launch one of four features:
- The Worker Ant Roaming Wilds free spins round lets all wilds collected roam around the reels for the duration of the bonus.
- The Soldier Ant Multiplying Roaming Wilds is a free spins round with any wilds collected roaming around the reels for the duration of the bonus; any that land in the same position become multipliers of up to 5 times.
- The Colonel Ant Expanding Roaming Wilds round gives you free spins with any wilds collected roaming around the reels for the duration of the bonus; any that land in the same position expand to cover the whole reel.
- Finally, the Queen Ant Colossal Roaming Wilds free spins round displays the Queen Ant as a huge 3 x 3 wild symbol if she makes an appearance.
Once your free spins are over you may be randomly awarded a feature from the Jet Pack Antics bonus:
- Aardvark Antics turn random reels wild and adds up to 40 extra paylines.
- Frantic Antics rearrange symbols into winning combos.
- Colossal Antics add colossal wilds to the reels.
- Wild Antics turn random reel positions wild.
