Evoplay Entertainment seems to be big on their reactor style games, as they've put out a number of titles that use the mechanic. This lust for reactors is equalled only by Evoplay's lust for violence, as their Nuke World slot features various characters shooting at and maiming each other on the sides of the reels, and icons contain a plethora of bombs that would make a terrorist jealous. The end result is a game that looks strange but plays well.
Nuke World is a 7 reel, 7 row reactor style slot set in a post-apocalyptic world that's ruled by aggressive furry critters that no-doubt caused humanity's downfall. The game sees you trying to trying to match clusters of similar icons, which then are combined to trigger a win and then removed from the reels. The game has a cascading setup, which sees icons above falling down and replaced with new symbols. This can set up multiple wins on a single spin.
While this gameplay goes on, there are critters on each side of the reels that are fighting with weapons. There's a fox with a chainsaw gun straight out of Gears of War, a pangolin with a rocket launcher on his arm, a chameleon with lasers on his back, a rooster with a machine gun arm, and a rhino with a sledgehammer. Each of these characters has their own boost and are advanced on as you destroy the lives of each critter.
Nuke World has a nice visual flare to it, but it's only for punters who enjoy reactor games. If you don't, it gets boring quickly. Despite having a theoretical return to player (RTP) rate of 96%, it does have seem to have long periods of little to no joy on the reels. The game looks sharp and it plays great on my iPhone, although I did primarily play on my PC.
If you're looking for something cutesy and violent at the same time and you enjoy reactor style games, Nuke World will likely be up your alley. The game looks great and seems to play okay, but be prepared for some long stretches without a big win.
