Astro Legends Online Slot, available at 32Red Casino.
Astro Legends tells the story of Lyra, the frontwoman for an intergalactic touring band in the far-flung future. Although she is known for her earth-shattering keytar solos, Lyra has star power in more ways than one. As a peacekeeper from the ancient planet Oratorio, collecting enough stardust from crystals and gems allows her to shape-shift into her spirit form: a glowing wolf who can sprint incredible distances in seconds.
Lured to the surface of the abandoned trading post planet Libretto by an eccentric artificial intelligence named Erion, Lyra will need all her powers – not to mention your assistance – to overcome her greatest challenge and re-join the Astro Legends for the gig of a galactic lifetime.
Complementing the strong, slightly tongue-in-cheek, science-fiction story is Foxium’s most polished audiovisual presentation to date. Astro Legends’ lead characters are realised in full 3D, with extensive animation, and gameplay takes place against a series of stunning painted backdrops. And as you might expect from a game with an interstellar popstar as its hero, the adaptive music is a character in its own right.
The soundtrack hearkens back to the era of grand sci-fi, with retro-inspired synthesisers rising and falling in keeping with the on-screen action.
In Foxium’s signature style, Astro Legends picks up where the mechanics of the studio’s previous game, Adelia The Fortune Wielder, left off – pushing the envelope of playability into new dimensions.
The game seems simple on the surface; the diamond-shaped board is populated by only six symbols (three royals and three varieties of crystals) and a cluster pay system means that any five adjacent symbols of the same type will trigger a payout. But beneath the crystals lies some serious complexity! The game has three key features: geometric wild symbols, which appear with a random multiplier of between 2x and 5x; a highstakes respins round; and an exciting pick-me adventure bonus game, which rewards players for successfully completing multiple levels.
During respins, which occur quite frequently, Lyra targets a particular crystal type to extract stardust from, while Erion attempts to lock down the clusters with a crystal shield. By playing scorching keytar riffs, Lyra can respin and attempt to break those shielded clusters for big wins - with the ceiling being a blistering payout of 15,000 times your total bet.
In the bonus game, Lyra’s stardust spirit form sprints from left to right across the screen, gathering gems, with three different lanes to choose from. To prevent her escaping, Erion raises crystal barriers, and you must guess correctly which lanes will allow them to dodge the obstacles and reach the next stage.
With a pool of three lives, players who successfully traverse all six stages will win 20 times their total bet, as well as any gems collected during the run. After all, a popstar still has to get paid!
