When i first played the Netent Steam Tower Slot game, i thought “What the heck is a Steam Tower?”. Is it when you erect a particularly alluring pile of Lego? Or what East 17 were really singing about in their steamy hit all those moons ago?

Well, not according to this Steam Punk-inspired online slot from cult developing house Net Entertainment. Here, a Steam Tower is not only a chance to spin some reels but also a shot at grand adventure and gameplay to write home about.

Gameplay

The Steam Punk genre has taken off in a big way, and not least because it must be heated to 100° and will rise on up until extracted and ducted away. The playful sound score plays nicely to the game’s adventurous theme, while an adventurous looking Gentry type in the style of Hugh Jackman – complete with moustache and mutton chops – stands eagerly beside the reel case ready to pounce. Turns out he is preparing to climb the Steam Tower and rescue a (hopefully) steamy Girl from a fierce-looking Dragon, who will definitely be steamy. Which all explains why our Hero wields a grappling gun.

Apart from looking extra slick on the graphic and sound front, NetEnt score highly with Steam Tower on the game design aspect too. While the five reel, 15 fixed payline set-up seems standard, the reel gameplay coup comes when we begin to climb the tower in our attempts to rescue the mistress in distress.

Bonuses

And to put our grappling gun to good use we must land a Stacked Wild symbol – our Hero covering one of the reels. Landing this Wild automatically launches us into a bonus feature bestowing 10 Free Spins, and we begin to climb the tower, our ultimate aim being to climb to the 16th floor and rescue the Girl from the clutches of the Dragon.

We can progress further up the levels of the tower by landing one of the game’s Grappling Gun Wild symbols, which will also give us an extra two free spins per symbol as well as substituting for all other symbols as normal. As we climb higher the prizes and multipliers climb alongside us, right up until the grand finale. And how grand it is – reach the top and not only will we get the girl but we’ll also bag a 1000x multiplier. I know which one I’d like to take up the tower.

Summary

The gameplay and bonus structure in Steam Tower are certainly unique, brought to life brilliantly through the in-game animations. Net Entertainment know what they are doing when it comes to the fantastic lives of online slots, and they have gone whole hog with this steamy badger right here.
