    With a boss named Roasty McFry, one can only expect things to be frying hot in this game. Well, it certainly did for me when I was trying it out in the fun mode. It gave me a very nice win of 596x my bet amount, and that got me so excited that I quickly switched over to real play mode and made a deposit to play it. Ah! It's been so long ago when any Thunderkick game could do that to me! From Fruit Warp, to Barber Shop, and then to Birds On A Wire. Now it's Roasty McFry and the Flame Busters turn to do that.

    'W' is the Wild symbol in the game, a very dumb symbol unfortunately. It only does substitution for other symbols except for the Scatter symbol, and nothing else. No paying for itself, no doubling of wins, no stacking and no expanding either. Yep, and no fun too, hehehe. The Fire Alarm is the Scatter symbol, another dumb symbol, and getting 3, 4 or 5 of these Alarms trigger 10, 15 or 20 free spins without any multiplier. The Free Spins game cannot be retriggered either. Oh sheesh! The Fire is a Mystery symbol, the third dumb symbol in the game. It comes stacked in both base and Free Spins games, and can transform into any symbol except for the Scatter and the Wild symbols. As for the other symbols, the Fireman pays 10x, the Old Man pays 5x, the Boxer pays 4.5x, the Robot pays 3.5x, the Goat pays 3x, and the rest pay from 2x to 1.5x, all per total bet for getting 5 of each kind. Sadly though, this is an extremely low paytable, comparable to many other newer games, but then again, Thunderkick paytables have always preferred to stay on the lower end of the scale.

    When I first came across this new game from Thunderkick at Casumo, I couldn't resist trying it out. Oh boy! Was I really surprised when I saw that this Flame Busters game is really a very old 8-bit game but upgraded into a 243 ways to win game! That was a nice upgrade, but how I wish those Thunderkick guys could have upgraded the graphics into 16-bit as well. Okay, that would incur a lot of time and effort on their side, especially because it isn't one of their games in the first place. It's probably bought over from Nintendo, with a copyright pattern dated way back to 1986, long before Thunderkick was even born! Hahaha.

    In the base game, a Fire Drill may be randomly activated, whereby 1 up to 5 low symbols may be turned into the Mystery symbol, and then transforming into any other symbol on the reels, except for the Scatter and Wild symbols, to create wins. Quite interesting this Fire Drill game, although it doesn't happen so often. In the Free Spins game, each appearing Fire Alarm fills the meter at the top, and collecting 3 Fire Alarm symbols advances the game to the next higher level, with 2 extra free spins added, and one additional low symbol turned into the Mystery symbol. All 5 low symbols are turned into the Mystery symbol for the final 5th Level game, and this is where all the big wins can be attained.

    Getting use to seeing those low quality graphics may take a little while, but if you keep your focus on the gameplay alone, then the game would be more interesting and exciting. After many plays on this Flame Busters game, the low graphics doesn't matter at all to me now. All I want to see is getting those Free Spins and Fire Drills, as many times as possible. Hahaha.

    There are only 2 things that I'm not satisfied with this Flame Busters game - the 8-bit graphics and the extremely low paytable. Most payouts in the base game are just too small to create any interest, and things only get hot when the Free Spins games start coming on and off, including those Fire Drills too. A very entertaining game, although the payouts are much to be desired, but I still find myself playing it over and over again. There must be something in that Roasty McFry that I still don't know of, hahaha.

    Those of us who are old enough will remember the type of pixellated computer games we used to play back in the 1980s and this online slot from Thunderkick is a tribute to those early days of arcade pleasure; it’s called Flame Busters, it includes some clever features and you can find out how it all works below.

    Flame Busters is a five reel slot with three rows and 243 ways to win – wins can be formed as long as there are matching symbols in adjacent reels starting from the left hand side. All the action takes place on the side of a blocky building with firefighters poised on either side (they’re part of a feature).

    The higher value symbols look like various unnamed characters from other retro arcade games and there’s a fireman, a wizard, a pirate, a robot and an alien; four coins marked with T, J, Q, K and A represent the lower values.

    The wild symbol is a bit orange ‘W’ and it will replace all others to form winning combos except for the Alarm Bell scatter icon.

    I like fire I will talk about it hehehehe....

    Fire Symbols

    in Flame Busters Slot by Thunderkick

    Each time the fire symbol lands it will be extinguished by the firefighter and all those on the reels will transform into matching symbols (except the scatter and wild), hopefully helping you out with a big win.

    Fire Drill

    This occurs randomly only in the base game and you will see a small graphic showing one to five of the lower value icon changing into fire symbols which will then change into matching icons.
