A Closer Look at Foxium Games
Foxium may not have the largest range of slots in the business, but they are surely market leaders in terms of consistently high quality. There simply is not a weak title at all. Every game is a gem. Their standard of graphics and gameplay matches even the biggest names in gaming software.
The themes chosen for their designs also demonstrate real innovation and imagination. Even where a title does seem to fit snugly into the everyday standard genre mould, there are still plenty of astounding surprises to shake off the cobwebs of familiarity. Tiny Gods for example, is without doubt a firm member of the familiar ancient Egyptian genre. But Foxium really do take it to another level. There are the familiar pyramids and obelisks of course, plus features like Mystery of Horus and Wrath of Anubis. Yet their version of what is perhaps the most widely covered theme still manages to offer something truly exiting, even for those who think they have seen (and played) them all.
Because here the similarity with other pharaonic slots ends. On Tiny Gods, you get stunning graphics with miniature animated creatures, endowed with special powers which wake up the Pharaoh and his Queen from their thronely slumber with a start. Ever heard of the Gift of Bastet feature? Well you have now. What’s more, on this superb slot you don’t even have to wait for your randomly generated free spins. You can actually bypass the algorithm and buy them instead. For an extra stake, you can also ‘Foxify’ your spins by increasing the chances of triggering the game’s special features.
It’s a similar story with Stumpy McDoodles. OK, at first glance, it’s the familiar story of little creatures dressed in green with shamrocks and gold coins at every turn. But this is the Irish Luck theme with a twist. Here, the beer swilling Stumpy will attempt to guide your way to some impressive prizes. You will be ably assisted by his free spirited party animal wife Penny who will join you on a journey to look for pots of gold, rather than mere pennies.
Every Foxium game features a unique, distinctive topic which really does offer players something different. Lucky Bakery features a picture perfect Parisian patisserie which is just the thing for players with a sweet tooth. Astro Legend manages to meld several different genre themes into one almightily successful mash up. With flavours of intergalactic space travel, gemstone discovery and a funky synth touring band to give a musical twist, this amazing game features time travel, immortality and artificial intelligence to make this game a Sci-Fi theme with a difference.
Meanwhile, Vampire the Masquerade depicts Las Vegas like you’ve never seen it before. Gone is the glitzy larger than life neon lit architecture, replaced by a dark and gothic urban bad land that makes Gotham city seem like a paradise.
Perhaps my favourite Foxium game for graphics is the dark and foreboding Brothers Grimm style woodland of The Odd Forest. Surrounded by strange creatures of the night, dark shadows thrown from ancient spooky trees and strange luminous toadstools, the magic fairy Elvia does battle with a bloodthirsty Evil Spider to try to earn you some mouth-watering prizes from the murk. This is maybe not a good choice of game for arachnophobes…
Foxium have certainly attracted attention from gaming industry insiders, with whom they have already developed a very strong reputation, despite their relatively tiny roster of games. This has enabled the company to sign an exclusive deal to licence their games via industry giant Microgaming’s Quickfire platform. This is good news for online casino players everywhere, as it makes their games widely available including to casinos operating on the market leading Nektan platform.
If you’re looking for the very best in contemporary slot design, with imaginative themes and exciting, entertaining gameplay, then you can’t go wrong with Foxium. Look out for their small but perfectly formed selection of slots at your chosen Nektan casino.
