The 6 reel, 4 row Hyperburst is an engaging title in virtually all regards, featuring impressively creative visuals, unexpectedly involved gameplay, as well as a few odd twists and turns. The pokie is, all in all, a triumph for Yggdrasil, who have certainly been on a winning streak of late.
With other great pokies such as Rock The Cash Bar and Valley Of The Gods 2 recently released, Yggdrasil is on fire, and quickly becoming a key player in the growing iGaming industry.
Taking a closer look at Hyperburst, the game is set on a remote tropical island. Thick jungles act as a backdrop to the grid, indicating that the player has ventured far into unknown territory. But the focus is, of course, on the towering volcano that stretches up above the grid, looking to be on the verge of full-scale eruption.
The player seems to have company on the island, however, indicated by the various interesting play symbols. Bizarre, tribal masks populate the grid, seeming to suggest that a religion of sorts has sprung up around the potential lava flow. All in all, the studio has done an excellent job of setting up an immersive experience, putting a great deal of effort into overall aesthetics.
In Hyperburst, the gameplay is squarely focused on chained wins. After each win an automatic respin is granted, but with the added benefit of 2 reels combining into a single, lava flow fuelled mega-reel. If an additional win is achieved, the lava flow expands to combine 3 reels. This process can be repeated until, after the entire grid has become lava infused, Hyper Mode is triggered.
During Hyper Mode multipliers are now added after each consecutive win, up to a maximum of x10. Most impressive of all is that during Hyper Mode, respins are unlimited, meaning that the wins will potentially keep on racking up until the payout maximum is reached.
Hyperburst is out now, and desktop and mobile pokie enthusiasts in New Zealand are certainly in for a treat.
