Games developer AppleJack Gaming has released a new exclusive martial arts-themed slot for Coral.co.uk, as part of a joint collaboration between the operator, the developer and platform provider Odobo.
Champion of Champions is a five-reel, fixed 20-line martial arts slot with an arcade combat genre theme. It is the first game collaboration created by AppleJack, Odobo and Coral Interactive.
As with all classic arcade fighting games, the ultimate aim is to defeat the big boss ‘Yoshinobu’, who rules a covert crime syndicate with an iron fist.
“Champion of Champions is a great example of new breed slot games,” said Rob Smith, head of business development at Odobo. “Like all the games developed via the Odobo Developer Program, it has been designed with a mobile first strategy and the user experience is impressive across all devices.
“It is the first game to market built using Odobo's specialised frameworks that have been designed to accelerate game production. We’re thrilled to have this title available exclusively in our Marketplace and thank Gala Coral for its support in promoting the game.”
As the story goes, Yoshinobu draws his power from the spirit energy derived from the will of brave fighters and seeks ultimate world domination. Only four warriors are strong enough to face him and one of them may just become the Champion of Champions.
The game has multiple bonus features to keep players engaged. Striking three ‘Versus’ symbols across a pay-line triggers the ‘Champion’s Bonus’ feature. Control of the warriors then falls to the player in an epic four-stage battle culminating with the fight against Yoshinobu.
The ‘Golden Dragon’ bonus feature is triggered at random and ignites the symbols in a sensory explosion that turns them wild and brings home some big wins in the base game. The third bonus feature is a ‘Free Spins’ round, where every spin has wilds on the second-to-fourth reels and can further retrigger.
In addition to the high-impact game play, there are 29 achievements for players to collect. This casual gaming feature encourages return visits and persists between sessions, irrespective of the player’s device.
Anthony Conway, Gala Coral Interactive’s head of casino, games and slots, said: “Champion of Champions is a story-driven slot game that is designed to be immersive entertainment that players will keep coming back to. We’re really excited by this title.”
