There are plenty of online slots themed on well-known superheroes but X-O Manowar may not be too familiar – he was a Valiant Comics creation with lots of super-abilities who sold pretty well in the early 1990s; this game is developed by Pariplay and from £0.25 per spin it offers players free spins, sticky wilds and progression through various chapters.
X-O Manowar is a five reel slot with three rows and twenty five fixed paylines; through those transparent reels there’s a scene of what looks like Roman vs alien violence in the first chapter of this story.
High value symbols include characters from this adventure such as X-O Manowar, Primary Reebo, Colonel Capshaw, Trill and Saana; 10, J, Q, K and A represent the lower values. The wild is the big, orange ‘Wild’ which will replace everything except for the Bonus to help create winning combinations.
X-O Manowar Bonus Features
The five balls to the left hand side are the Orbs of Shanhara and they slowly fill up as you create winning paylines; once an orb is full it will award a mini-feature:
- First Orb – any wilds which appear on the reels in the next five spins will remain in place for between three and five spins.
- Second Orb – awards 10, 15 or 20 free spins.
- Third Orb – awards a 6x, 12x, 18x, 24x or 32x multiplier of your bet.
Landing at least three of the bonus symbols anywhere in view will award one of five different features for your pleasure:
- The Hara Vine – select from the flowers on offer to find bet multipliers of between 9x and 40x.
- Battle Commander Thrill – select a method to attack the robot and win bet multipliers of 2x to 20x.
- Vine Or Not? – you have three picks from the humans on the screen to find the ‘vine’ for bet multipliers of between 2x and 25x.
- Defend The Earth – shoot the battle ships to find diamonds to win bet multipliers of between 4x and 18x; three misses ends the game.
- The Trial of Shanhara – select arrows to move across the playing area, defeating enemies on the way for bet multipliers of between 4x and 32x.
Anyone who’s played Pariplay’s Bloodshot will now that this developer knows how to integrate a superhero narrative into an online slot machine; X-O Manowar is entertaining stuff and only improved by the comic book-style graphics and Orb feature which makes you want to keep playing.
