Call of Fruity is a Call of Duty style game, but with fruits for its main characters, so as you’d imagine it paints quite the unique picture for its players. It’s also a release from a highly experienced developer, Barcrest, so the game will have a lot to offer, even as the graphics don’t quite rise to the kind of level quality we see from other developers.
It’s not a game with a lot of lines, only 10 are present on the standard 5×3 reels, but that’s not going to stop it from delivering a good prize. Up to $250,000 is the potential of the game for a single spin, if everything goes right. Otherwise, you get a chance to trigger along the way a Bombsight Bonus, the Fly-By Bonus, along with scatter and wild symbols.
Sporting 10 fixed lines, the game requires the player to decide only on the amount that will go to each one. You have a minimum line bet of $0.01 and a maximum one of $50, so with those 10 lines in play you’re going to have a betting range of $0.10 to $500. It can be cheap, or it can be expensive, and the payouts you get from it will depend on the amount you’re willing to risk.
Call of Fruity Jackpot
Jackpot wise, you get only a 500x prize from the game’s best winning combinations. Thanks to the high bets of the game, you can win as much as $25,000 from each one, or up to $250,000 if they end up filling up the screen. It’s not a bad jackpot to be striving for, I’ll give it that at least.
As for the RTP, it’s at a 95.2% which I’d consider below average if we take into account only modern slot machines, the ones that ultimately Call of Fruity will have to compete with.
Barcrest included several OK features in Call of Fruity, so you’re not likely to get bored too easily, especially since it’s such a fun theme. A mix of wilds and bonus games will do their best to keep you entertained.
The Gold Medal, marked Wild, is your wild feature obviously. It’s a symbol that you may use in a couple of ways, none of which are unusual for this type of feature. When it contributes to other combinations, it does it for the regular symbols only, and only when it is appropriate for it to do so. When it’s lined up two or more times on a line, it pays its own prizes instead, even as much as 500x.
Pick Me Bonus
This one you get with the help of the Pineapple Bonus scatters. Having these scattered on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels at the same time gets you into a feature which asks you to pick one of the symbols. You could get a multiplier from it, to apply against the round’s total bet, or you could trigger the Bombsight Bonus.
Bombsight Bonus: if this is the end result of your pick, then you will have to select one of the shown bunkers. Each one you pick will remove a multiplier from the available ones, until you’re left with only one. You get three offers at most, and once you accept a prize the feature is over.
The final feature on the list is this one, which you get via Bonus Airplane scatters. Once again, you only need three symbols, but this time they are required to appear on the middle columns. These middle three reels are turned into wilds, after which the first and last reels get a single free re-spin. You’re guaranteed 10 winning combinations of at least 4 symbols each, so this tends to be a lot of fun when it does trigger.
The story is a fun one, and I like how Barcrest mixed these two common themes into something unique. War and Fruits are two different themes, but turning fruits into soldiers makes them look funny and the game did get a smile out of me a couple of times. You see watermelons, strawberries, lemons and other fruits in the game, some as soldiers, others as bonus triggers or airplane pilots. The title seems to be a play on the Call of Duty franchise.
Call of Fruity gives us a fun and unique theme, a funny design and several good features. The RTP is the only part that I’m not quite happy with, but it’s not too bad.
