The game itself is small, these are not unusual when it comes to Play’n GO slots, they boast a lot of promise on the surface but you’ll find yourself only spending a matter of minutes playing their games, rather than hours, which their game Viking Runecraft will have you doing. This one is miles apart, it really does feel like they will focus on one epic game, and meanwhile, release ‘weaker’ games along the way.
It’s not to say it’s a bad game, but it will get lost at sea, especially given the other options available from other developers.
