Blueprint Gaming continues its wondrous slots adaptation spree in conjunction with the NYX Gaming Group. This time with this five reel, three row, 20 pay-line Top Cat Slot that lets us step seamlessly into the world of this mischievous puss. Top Cat is the classic 60s cartoon that saw the indisputable Cat go toe-to-toe with Officer Dibble over TC’s plans to get himself and his moggies out of Hoagy’s Alley. If he had a shot at the progressive jackpot on offer in the Top Cat online slot, there would have been even fewer episodes than the 30 commissioned. You want to spin some reels? Why I oughta!
Any adaptation of a classic cartoon such as Top Cat needs to be brilliantly drawn and super playable. Blueprint hits those notes perfectly with its alley and hazy cityscape background, with Top Cat’s classic fence, red telephone and trash can, bringing the game-play to life.
Top Cat, Brain, Choo-Choo, Benny the Ball, Fancy-Fancy and Spook all make it to our reels as the high-paying symbols, expertly drawn in the classic cartoon’s style. The lower-payers offer no surprises as the standard Jacks through Aces, though they have been given their own cartoonish styling to fit the animated bill.
Speaking of animations, come the bonus rounds and randomly triggered action the Top Cat online slot also offers typical interchanges between Top Cat and Officer Dibble as they spar over the rights to Hoagy’s Alley.
Blueprint Gaming has a reputation for developing slots with a hefty emphasis on gameplay-based bonuses, so it is no surprise and very welcome that Top Cat offers four randomly-triggered bonuses that spruce up our game-play nicely. Choo’s Piano Wilds, Benny’s Colossal TVs, Brain’s Water Wilds and Spook’s Mice Is Nice all of which add Wilds and surprise symbols to the reels in various degrees that help add to our escape fund nicely.
But what about the most effectual Top Cat? Well, in true TC style he plays out our main bonus feature, the Masterplan. Here we must choose between five farcical plans from the Cash Picker Bonus, Maharajah Heist, Diner Free Spins, Dibble’s Free Spins or Construction Site Wilds. Each of these games holds its own charms to keep us enthralled each time we load up this slot.
See someone missing from the list? Blueprint haven’t forgotten about Fancy Fancy. The Fancy Fancy Hot Dog Re-spins is a mouthful in more ways than one. The white-scarfed kitty dangles a hot dog over the reels with a fishing rod when we land a Stacked Hot Dog Scatter on reel 5. He will then dip and dunk the hot dog across the reels and substitute for symbols as he does.
With nearly as many bonus games as there were episodes, the Top Cat mobile slot is simply the cat’s meow. Blueprint has hit all the right notes in this adaptation, bringing a classic cartoon to slots life effortlessly and bringing smiles to the faces of many a cartoon lover.
