Online slot developers Habanero really threw us all off when they released Techno Tumble. This utterly bizarre space-themed slot does not play like an online slot in any way, shape or form. This futuristic title has no reels or symbols! Instead, between 15 and 45 coloured balls fall from the top of the game screen land bounce into place at the bottom, any matching balls are removed from the game! It's that simple.
First and foremost, we should point out that this game was made with sound in mind! When the game is first loaded up it's recommended that players wear headphones this way they can fully benefit from the high-quality space-age soundtrack as this gravity-based slot does its thing.
The game itself doesn't look like anything we've seen before, and it's quite hard to describe it if we're being honest! Each time players press play between 15 and 45 balls bounce from the top of the game screen into a triangular container. Behind the balls are some moving shapes that float around.
The soundtrack is truly relaxing, it sounds like something that would be played during a meditation! We wouldn't particularly say it's exciting, but it fits the aesthetic of the slot perfectly. When the balls fall from the sky there are noises that correspond with the movement of each and every ball in play.
Upon triggering the bonus feature, the game stays relatively similar however everything changes from a blue design to a pink one, and the well that the game balls fall into changes shape to be more open.
It's hard to know where to start here, as mentioned this game does not play like any online slot you'll have played before. It's almost difficult to even call this an online slot, as it shares absolutely no similarities with your traditional slot game.
Wins are formed when five or more balls are touching each other on the game screen in the same manner wins are formed in cluster pays slots. These winning combinations are then removed from the game and new ones fall into place, potentially causing even more winning combinations.
In terms of navigating the game, there's an action bar along the bottom of the game screen. Players can change their bet level on the left-hand side of the screen and their coin value on the right-hand side of the screen. In the centre, there's a spin button, a max bet button and an autoplay button (that allows players to set up to 500 automated spins).
Techno Tumble has a fantastic maximum win potential of 13,080x the players' stake, which is one of the reasons we were so keen to sink our teeth into this slot. Couple this with the above-average RTP of 96.73% and you've got a winning title on your hands!
The combination of unique mechanics, gripping bonus rounds and lucrative payouts is more than enough to draw us in. We'd highly recommend giving this strange slot a go! It's nothing like you'll have ever played before, but please don't count it out because of that!
