AstroBoomers: Turbo Review
The original AstroBoomers, AstroBoomers: To The Moon, set a high standard for crash games as it was one of the first notable crash games to become successful in the mainstream. With the success of this game, FunFair Games decided it was time to recapture the magic but go even bigger.
Just like the previous game, this one focuses on transporting passengers from Earth to the moon in order to save them from global annihilation. Sadly, the road is long and tough as some ships are faulty meaning that passengers must be ejected to safety.
This is where the player comes in and has to guide them. Of course, players will be rewarded handsomely for saving them as well.
The overall design of this slot is mostly unchanged from the previous game. It starts with people boarding a spaceship and then being taken into space. Unfortunately, some rockets are faulty meaning that they explode.
In terms of the design, the graphics are quite crisp and provide a full story to the player with multiple cutscenes. It definitely builds up the atmosphere to create thrilling moments for players.
This is all accompanied by amazing audio with drums, synth sounds and other ambient noises. It certainly feels like an epic adventure.
Most of the gameplay remains the same, except for the fact that the three different bet levels have been taken out. This is quite disappointing and makes the slot feel a little limited. Players will still be able to select auto-bets, but only for one.
AstroBoomers: Turbo contains the bet level buttons in the middle followed by the leaderboard to the left. There is also the emoji chat feature to the right which is okay to use but we would have definitely preferred a full-on chat feature.
Just like the previous game, this one does not contain a volatility level. Instead, players decide on the volatility by playing it riskier by waiting for bigger wins or taking cashing out before the spaceship gets too far.
The RTP is the same for this slot at 97% which is fantastic to see. This is followed by a massive maximum win of 10,000x the stake which is crazy! Sadly, we couldn't see through the leaderboard history to see if this has ever been achieved, but we only saw the ship go up to 1,951x the stake (which is crazy for a crash game).
On the one hand, this game surpasses the original in terms of the win potential. However, that's where it stops. In terms of the aesthetic and gameplay, the original game is superior in every way.
That's not to say that AstroBoomers: Turbo is not an excellent crash game, but it's hard to compare it to the masterpiece that is the original. If you are a high roller, looking for bigger wins, then it's a no-brainer to play AstroBoomers: Turbo.
