Prepare to get hypnotised with 5 reel 30 payline cyber slot coming from Thunderkick. Spectra will dazzle you with the minimalistic design of the usual fruity-slot icons. Thunderkick added a spark of neon light, reduced all the symbols to two dimensions and sent it to a space journey. This vibrant and crisp slot sports a 5×4 layout with traditional game play and no special features.
That is right. You read it well. No special features but Wild is there to save the day. The developers decided to put all of their hopes into the Wild and see if one symbol can actually be enough to keep the game going. With features such as Wild Nudge and Wild re-spin and a prize of 2,400 your stake, it seems possible.
What We Love
It is always nice to see developers that have the courage to tackle the ideas of changing the basic functions of the game. Surely, it is easy to add tons of bonus games and advertise top prizes, but can you make it work with all the familiar icons and one special Wild symbol? That is precisely what Thunderkick tried to do and it seems that they did a pretty good job.
What we especially appreciate about Thunderkick’s slot is that the design is always in balance with the overall story and the features of the game. That is the case with Spectra, its minimalistic design actually reflects the basics of the game play.
You won’t have much to look for in this game, only the flashy Wild which does not come alone. There will always be four stacked Wilds. The best thing is that whenever you see a Wild you will get a re-spin, which will happen pretty often, so there is actually no need for Free Spins.
Perhaps the most useful feature of the Wild will be its tendency to shift up or down in order to form a winning combination with other symbols. Again, each new Wild will add a re-spin. The animation follows these interesting features, so the letter W will turn into an arrow when Nudge feature is activated. We quite liked the overall design of this feature.
What We Do Not Like
Despite the fact that all of the functions of the Wild are pretty useful, and the fact that the game awards them regularly, it still feels a little bit boring without any special features.
It is not just about the payouts but it is about the dynamics of the game. It is simply more thrilling when you have some special feature to wait for.
Honestly, we are willing to overlook any flaw that Spectra might have, because it is definitely a well-packed and neatly designed slot, which makes you enjoy every step of the way. Everything is in perfect balance: the visual and sound effects and the features, the volatility and the payouts. If you are willing to settle for a spinner without Free Spins or Bonus games, then Spectra will be your next favourite slot.
