Games developers tread a fine line when designing game based on wars, especially the more recent ones because the subject is, by definition, not a cheerful one. How do you produce an enjoyable game when the subject matter certainly is not? This is probably why war-themed slots are not particularly common but there are still enough for us to pluck our five favourites.
They range from the amusing Cannonball Bay from Microgaming to the grim reality of The Great War from Random Logic so click on our reviews below to read more.
|Victory Ridge takes us straight to the grim frontline of the Second World War. It's from Chartwell (now Amaya Gaming) and it features plenty of freshens and some surprisingly good graphics. Click here for the full review.|
|Battle Of The Atlantic is developed by Openbet and it feels the tale of the efforts to protect the transatlantic convoys from enemy attack. There are free spins, a 'Battleships'-style game and a progressive jackpot. Click here for the full review.|
|Silent Run from Net Entertainment takes us deep beneath the ocean waves as you pilot a submarine and attempt to sink enemy ships. It's atmospheric, claustrophobic and well worth checking out. Click here for the full review.|
|The Great War is clearly themed on the First World War and it's developed by Random Logic. It's a high quality slot which is intentionally a bit depressing given the subject matter but worth playing nonetheless. Click here for the full review.|
|Cannonball Bay from Microgaming takes us way back to the days of naval skirmishes between European powers in the Caribbean. A funny main character and a free spins bonus round add to the fun. Click here for the full review.|
