Comment: A fabulous remastered version of the magnificent original.
If you are a fan of the fabulous Book of Souls the original, then you’ll be excited, yet, not totally blown away by the long-awaited Book of Souls Remastered. Although there are some cool add-ons that might help warm you to the newest addition to the Spearhead Studios family.
There is a sequence to the games starting with the original Book of Souls, followed with the Book of Souls El Dorado and the latest addition, the Book of Souls Remastered.
The “remastered” part means that Spearhead has revisited the fabulous original Book of Souls, with a beautifully re-designed graphics package, improved symbols, and soundtrack. In short, the Remastered version has an upbeat faster-paced action vibe that adds excitement to the game.
As with all Spearhead Studios games, the graphics are brilliant and there is an instant recognition of all the original Lara Jones characters, back on a new quest to re-discover the golden riches hidden inside yet another ancient Mayan tomb. Oh, and there are snakes!
The safer gambling element is missing in this game. That said, there is NO auto-play option, so you are in total control. Obviously, you can’t control your losses, but you can have a rethink before every click.
Spearhead Studios are massive in the iGaming industry, and not just in the size of what they do. What they bring to the iGaming world of slots is endless entertainment from clever and seriously talented Games studios. As part of the EveryMatrix group, Spearhead has added some memorable games to the fabulous list of Book of… series of games, including the fabulous Book of Muertitos, Blue Diamond Book, Book of the Princess, Book of Souls, Book of Souls II El Dorado and the Book of the King.
The Book of Souls Remastered is built around the classic scatter symbols that you’d normally get with any Book of… slot. Three trigger the Bonus spins and you are then taken to the actual Book Souls, which reveals your Bonus symbol. Then the real fun begins as you start with 10 free spins.
Prizes in this game are generous and it took us no time at all to bag all three books. Once we did, the pots seemed to drop into place one after the other. Not the biggest Bonus round pot we’ve cashed in on, but seriously close.
There is more than one option on the gamble feature in this game. Either you go for the classic “higher or lower” ladder, or you can half your win/gamble. The interesting part about the gamble feature is that you don’t just drop to nothing. The idea behind the ladder is that your progress is in stages of the ladder. That leaves you the option of backing out and only risk a little at a time. Clever. The rest is just good old-fashioned reels and spins with great graphics and a fab soundtrack.
