Napoleon Storms Into Tropic Thunder

War, huh, yeah. What is it good for? Absolutely nothing! Unless of course it’s depicted on an online slot. And then it’s awesome. So get that song out of your head and join us on a military quest as we pit two big developers against each other. It’s the battle for war slots champion as Blueprint’s Napoleon: Rise of an Empire takes on ELK’s Platooners.

Blown Apart On The Reels

Blueprint’s Napoleon: Rise of an Empire transports us back to the 19th century and onto the side of the legendary military tactician, Napoleon Bonaparte. This isn’t the first time the Newark-based studio has delved into the annals of history. Blueprint sought out the glory of Sparta in its ode to Frank Miller’s 300 in truly epic fashion. In Napoleon: Rise of an Empire, we see similarities and differences.

A battleground forms the backdrop to our gameplay, while on the reels, Cavalry, Cannons, Ships and war Horses stampede into action. The Napoleon Wild adds a multiplier boost when it appears two, three or four times and the Free spins don’t just give us Free Spins. The Napoleon Streak feature can come into play, at which point we bag Respins and Wild Multipliers. War is chaotic, but the end result is bountiful, something which is summed up perfectly on this slot.

Platooners, on the other hand, is way different. First off, it’s heavily stylised in a cartoon fashion so we can’t take the war element seriously. Plus, the story behind it is that the Platooners are on the set of an action movie, a lot like Tropic Thunder. So we get laughs, we get 178 Ways to Win and we get a Platooners vs Snakes of Fortune feature which can see us win up to 2,500 times our stake. It might not be as hardcore as Nappy B (a nickname we’re sure Monsieur Bonaparte would hate), but it’s just as rewarding.

What Is War Good For?

Blooming good action on the reels for a start. Whether it’s the sombre music in the background on Napoleon: Rise of an Empire or the jaunty soundtrack of ELK’s Platooners, we still have Edwin Starr in our head. So as we get drummed up for battle, the more realistic offering has to be Napoleon: Rise of an Empire all the way. But when it’s time to add some humour into a bleak subject matter, ELK gets our vote.
