Astro Legends mobile slot is a 22 reel cluster pay game where the goal is to beat the monster Erion as you play as Lyra, the keytar playing funky shape-shifting wolf. Yes, this is as crazy as it sounds.
Say what you will about this Foxium slot game, but it certainly doesn’t lack imagination.
With Lyra standing by the side of the reels, swaying side to side to the sound of her own sync 80s theme, she comes alive when she has to battle Erion.
He pops from the right-hand side, a monstrous crystal alien intent on destroying music and sounds and freezing life on Lyra’s planet.
You better get comfortable with our two leads because they are almost always on screen.
That’s because their battle gets started everytime a cluster of 5 or more symbols touch horizontally or vertically. This is what is called a cluster win and can be found in games like Energoonz by Play’n GO and Aloha Cluster Pays by NetEnt.
Each symbol here is it’s own individual reel; hence why you have 22 reels. All that means is that the symbols spin individually, something that works out in your favour during the main bonus.
Because a Cluster Win will get Erion to freeze any reels without a winning symbol, and Lyra will fight back with her guitar, re-spinning the reels in order to give you more wins.
There are no free spins in this Astro Legends video slot, but you don’t need them to get those sticky wins and re-spins so frequently.
You do get to play a fun click me bonus game where you pick paths that Lyra (in wolf form) will travel, collecting cash prizes along the way and avoiding Erion’s obstacles.
The problem with this slot bonus is that you need to collect 100 Stardust bubbles to trigger it, making it feel like an arduous task for a fairly small bonus.
But that’s ok because meanwhile, you get to watch these two alien titans battle it out to give you progressively bigger wins on every spin.
This Astro Legends Lyra and Erion slot probably won’t become legendary, but fans of high variance grid slots like Viking Runecraft should definitely give this a spin.

Cluster Pays: Symbols touching each other horizontally or vertically in clusters of five or more will pay out according to the paytable.
Multiplier Wild: The red gem is the wild symbol and may appear in 3 red calls only. It can be used to replace any other symbols on the reels and will have mystery multipliers of anything from 2x to 5x applied to any wins.
Sonic Respins: All cluster wins will activate a re-spin. During the respin any winning symbols are held and all other symbols will re-spin. This continues until no more winning symbols show up on screen.
The Stardust Lyra Spirit Bonus: While you play, Lyra randomly burst Stardust bubble symbols that pop on screen, collecting random number of points.
Once you collect 100 points, the woman (Lyra) turns into a wolf and you play an instant click-me game.
You have to choose one of three paths, with Erion blocking one or two paths after you've chosen them. On those paths are a random number of prizes to be won.
If you hit Erion's obstacles 3 times, the game ends. The longer you last, the bigger the prizes on the road.
We suspect that this Astro Legends slot on mobile will win a lot of hearts when it first comes out, and we hope it's not then forgotten with so many grid 5x5 casino games out there.
We didn't think we'd like this Foxium casino slot so much when we started playing; it just felt like a fancy Neon Staxx game and we weren't massive fans of that one. Maybe we needed to have lived through the 80s to really appreciate it.
The point is though that Astro Legends managed to look distinctive but also play with your ideas of how you should expect a sticky win, especially as you watch the two characters battle it out on your mobile phone or tablet.
With a huge top prize that could be won on any spin and a visually stunning mini-bonus, we hope this gets the attention it deserves.
