The Games Company has released KGB Bears and Light Racers, its fourth and fifth slot games via the Odobo Marketplace.
KGB Bears is a humorous, cold war themed, 5-reel slot game featuring a cast of four undercover spies who happen to be cuddly bears. Each bear shows off its unique spy gadgets in an engaging animated sequence.
Light Racers is a futuristic racing-themed, 5-reel slot game. The game features 3D animated symbols floating against a hi-tech cityscape. The soundtrack has an electronic and cinematic style, which underlies the modern visuals. The game offers the potential for large payouts and is expected to resonate particularly with a male demographic looking for big wins.
Both games run on the same engine but deliver individual playing experiences. The potential free-spins and multipliers available on every spin are displayed to the player before they take each turn. In KGB Bears the scatter symbol is a retro spy camera. In Light Racers the symbol is a futuristic floating orb. When two scatters land in the same spin the reels slow down to heighten the thrill of the game. A third scatter symbol landing will trigger the free spins mode and bigger potential payouts. Throughout the games the player’s anticipation is increased as every win and multiplier is seen before it is awarded.
The two games have been built in HTML5 via the Odobo Developer Program. The games retain the same level of detail and animation across all mobile devices and desktop. Both games have also been developed in Flash as well as HTML5, with the Flash versions due to be released on another platform very soon.
Hans Winkelmann, Managing Director of The Games Company, commented,
“We are very excited to be pushing the capability of HTML5. There is now no difference between the quality of our games in Flash and HTML5. Odobo has a great technology base, which has allowed us to rapidly distribute our games. Our guys have really done a great job with optimising these tools, it is evident throughout the games – in the artwork, the audio and the way they play across mobile, tablet and desktop. The Games Company is advancing what can be achieved with every new game. Our next release is going to be something pretty special!”
Glen Bullen, Partner Success Manager at Odobo, said,
“The Games Company is a genuinely proactive studio that invests time in finding out what is hot in the market to keep their finger on the pulse of player trends. They commit to projects 100% and turn around quality polished games, which satisfy the demand for exciting new games in a short timeframe. We’re thrilled to distribute their HTML5 games to operators such as bet365, Betfair, Coral and Unibet.”
The games can be played for free at Odobo Play or for real-money with bet365.
