Ever wondered what happens to the mountains of garbage we dispose of every day? Set on a desolate planet set aside for industrial waste disposal Incinerator, a 5 reel 20 payline slot released by Yggdrasil Gaming, invites us to wonder while salvaging scrap for vast profit!
With recent hits including “Cyrus the Virus” and “Cazino Zeppelin”, Yggdrasil Gaming have positioned themselves as an innovative software studio offering trendy, fast paced, and story driven games. Incinerator continues in this vein and seems to be a worthy addition to this Malta based developer’s catalogue.
Incinerator’s introduction sequence, which begins with the player approaching a desolate “Junk Planet” from space before descending through strata of abandoned machinery to a menacing post-industrial soundtrack, is a joy to behold. It is suggested that we find ourselves inside the eponymous Incinerator, perhaps salvaging equipment for reward. This author was reminded strongly of the PlayStation 1 classic Oddworld: Abe’s Odysee, a game with which Incinerator shares several themes and a certain dark, retro charm.
The game screen itself is well presented, with futuristic industrial equipment serving as paying symbols. We’ve awkwardly named them space tyre, fridge, pyramid, evil eye, pill bottle and undefined yellow; they make a welcome change from typical playing cards. There is also a nice effect when you activate a winning payline as symbols explode with the Cascading Reels feature (more in gameplay) and are replaced by symbols above.
