As we announced yesterday, NetEnt have released their first footage of Pyramid: Quest for Immortality™ and today we’re looking at the NetEnt Touch version: Pyramid: Quest for Immortality Touch™. A “NetEnt Touch” game is a game, made by game developers NetEnt, that can be played on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, whether they be Apple products, Android or another operating system.
NetEnt know their players and they know that players are mobile, busy and always on the go. This means that we can’t always be sitting at a computer when we fancy a spin on the slots, so they made sure to create a Pyramid: Quest for Immortality Touch™ version at the same time as the desktop version on October 22nd 2015, so this game will be immediately playable across all devices.
When playing Pyramid: Quest for Immortality Touch™ you do not compromise on quality. The graphics are crisp, clear and colourful, the sound is perfectly tuned (and easy to turn off if you’re in public!) and all features that are on the desktop version will also be on the Pyramid: Quest for Immortality™ Touch version too.
Speaking of features, what can you expect? Well, as mentioned yesterday, Pyramid: Quest for Immortality Touch™ holds more than a passing resemblance to old favourite, Gonzo’s Quest, with similar ‘dropping blocks’ style reels (even with that same, satisfying thud as they fall) and the crazy profitable Avalanche Feature where winning pay lines explode, leaving space for new symbols to fall into their place and create more winning pay lines, for free!
Wild symbols make an appearance as well, to create even more winning combinations as does a new Wild Generation, which seems to activate when a Wild creates an Avalanche and cause the Wild reel to keep reproducing more Wilds until the Avalanche is over. In simple terms it means more Wilds, which means more wins!
Back in the day when NetEnt first began creating games, online slot playing was done almost exclusively on laptops and computers. Mobile gaming just wasn’t a thing, so they created all their games to be optimised to work perfectly on computers. Suddenly, as technology progressed, smartphones blew up and really shook up the online gaming market, with many companies now striving to achieve 50% of their traffic via mobile.
NetEnt were amongst the first of the game developers to notice this new trend and quickly began creating NetEnt Touch versions of their most popular games, to be added to online casinos mobile sites, as well as ensuring that all new releases had a desktop and Touch version at the same time. These days, with the invention of HTML5 it’s much easier to create one version of a game that’s optimised across all platforms, rather than an entire new development, just for mobiles.
