It’s time to get into the arcade mood, as these little pixelated Firemen turn fires into wins in this Flames Busters mobile slot.
We love slots that use their theme so well, you don’t realise this is just a standard 243 ways to wins slot with 5×3 reels.
Thunderkick also did that well with their Luchadora slot, but Flame Buster does it even better, creating a building aflame, with little fire men ready to quench the heat and reveal big wins.
Don’t underestimate this mobile casino game because it looks like something SEGA might have released back in 1983. This building is blazing with some very modern thrills.
It seems popular to have one symbol hidden, till the spin ends, and you suddenly reveal just one symbol hidden underneath.
Fortune Girl slot by Microgaming does it by doors, Magical Stacks does it using boxes, but this Flame Buster mobile game is the cleverest of them all.
Instead, the five reels literally catch fire, and the firemen on the side of the reels will douse the flames to reveal one symbol underneath them all.
Granted, these fiery symbols don’t come stacked, which is a shame, and they seldom come more than 2 or 3 at a time.
But as long as these are on multiple lines, you’ll find yourself happilly spinning away. Just cause the theme is so damn cute.
Just be careful you don’t get carried away with cuteness, because the bonus games can take a while to show, and any wins you get in between, aren’t massively impressive.
You can’t admit that didn’t catch your eye, right?
Of course, it will take one hell of a free spin round or Fire Drill bonus for that to happen, but it can happen is our point.
The reason being, both these Thunderkick bonus games give you the opportunity to turn all the lower paying symbols into fire symbols – or mystery symbols.
Meaning they will all turn into a high paying symbol; the same high paying symbol in fact.
We wouldn’t play till it happened (This Flame Busters slot can be surprisingly unforgiving for a medium variance slot), but it’s worth taking a few spins to try and catch it every once in a while.
If nothing else, you’ll be able to say you played on Roasty McFry and the Flame Busters today. And who doesn’t have that in their to do list everyday?

Fire Symbol: The fire symbol is a mystery symbol that will be replaced by any of the other symbols (all the fire symbols always turn into the same symbols), but it won't be wild or scatter.
Wild Symbol: The 'W' is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols on screen.
Alarm Bell Scatter symbol: Get 3, 4 or 5, to trigger 10, 15 or 20 free spins.
There are a total of 5 levels in this Flame Busters free spins round. Every time you collect 3 scatter symbols (which you collect one by one, not three at once), a new floor is unlocked and you are awarded with 2+ spins.
Fans of the Steam Tower slot will recognise the set up.
For every floor you unlock, the lowest valued coin will turn into a fire symbol for the remainder of the bonus games.
So if you reach level 5, all low paying symbols will turn into high paying ones. But generally it's hard to reach much beyond level 3 unless you hit more than 10 free spins.
Fire Drill: This feature can be triggered randomly in he base game, transforming anything from 1 to 5 of the low win symbols into fire symbols.
We love the look and feel of this Flame Buster slot on mobile.
We even love how you have a chain smoking goat living in the same apartment building a wizard, a robot, a fireman and a pirate.
Because in the world of arcades, you can be as random as you want. This is certainly more imaginative than their Arcader slot that used a similar theme.
Granted, the base game spins can get a little slow at times, especially if you don't hit the bonus games quickly enough to see the real excitement in this Thunderkick casino game.
However, we still think this is a great use of a retro theme to add in a little extra spice and flavour to some unusual video slot features.
