The tale of Little Red Riding Hood gets an Anime twist as the wolf and hood fight for your attention in the truly spectacular Hood Vs Wolf mobile slot.
And when we say spectacular, we mean that this is truly a spectacle. If you are a fan of anime style graphics, stories, or video games, Pocket Game Soft studios have truly created something authentic.
In collaboration with famous Japanese music production companies and voice actors, you get animations on your mobile device that you usually only find on TV – this is even better than Koi Princess by NetEnt.
The Wolf and Hood characters are fighting out loud above your five reels, and transform into something truly glorious when you hit the free spin bonus rounds.
We had so much fun playing on this 5×3 30 payline slot machine, full of pink flowers, animal parts and picnic baskets.
Whenever you collect special wolf or little girl symbols, the battle above the reels gets more heated, until you collect enough to trigger the free spins game and the battle begins.
At this point, you play a rock paper scissor game to determine how many Hood Vs Wolf bonus spins you get.
If Hood wins, she turns into a mega kickass scythe-bearing wonder woman who will capture wolf symbols during your free games and give you extra wilds – usually around 3 or 4.
Our favourite is the wolf free spins because you can get up to 8 wilds in any one spin and it’s glorious seeing a wild animal cross dress into an old lady with a frying pan.
Why is this Hood Vs Wold slot online only 3 stars? Because for all the fun, we had a look at the numbers and, ultimately, they are not half as impressive as the game mechanics or the graphics.
For one, you can only win around 360 times your bet – which isn’t great when you consider that this is meant to be more volatile that the slot game Starburst where you can win 500 times your bet.
For two, the RTP is set at a fairly lower than average 95.39% meaning those bigger wins are hard to get.
You get lots of little wins throughout, but when we sat down and looked through our winning screenshots, we rarely got much more than 20x to 30x our bet, even during the free spins.
Still, in our hearts, we know we will be back to this Hood Vs Wolf video slot if only to appreciate a truly authentic anime casino game that may pay out little, but often.

Wilds: The wild symbol can replace all other symbols on the reels and replace any symbol on this 30 payline slot machine.
Rock Paper Scissors: On reels 2 and 4, the hand of the wolf and little red will randomly show up with cash prizes and showing either rock, paper or scissors.
When two of these bonus symbols show up on the reels, you win the cash prize under the winning hand.
Battle Feature: On the top of the reels you'll see that the Wolf and Hood are fighting it out live on screen and there's a collection bars just underneath them.
You need to find either Wolf or Hood power symbols, which will give either character extra strength to beat their enemy. Collect 9 symbols without getting more of the other character, and you win the free spins associated with either the girl or wolf.
At this point, you'll play 3 rounds of Rock Paper Scissors to determine how many free spins you've won. Each round won gives you 5 free spins, so if you win all three rounds you get to play 15 free spins.
Anime fans will be quickly drawn into this Hood Vs Wolf slot on mobile, but be careful.
You might be tempted to play for longer than usual if you are close to triggering one of the free spins bonuses, but remember these are hard to catch - maybe every 200 spins or more.
The wins are also never quite big enough to warrant waiting for this epic battle to begin. And it is an epic battle, that's for sure, but only because it looks so darn good.
That's not to say you can't have fun playing here, with the mini rock paper scissors feature in the base game keeping things light, and some good 5 of a kind wins.
However, if you want bigger wins in a fairytale slot we would have to recommend the Wicked Tales Dark Red slot instead, just because this little anime fare rarely reaches its full potential.
