Created by Robert E. Howard in 1932, Conan the Barbarian came a long way, from a tale to a mobile slot game like Conan Touch®.
It all started with a series of stories written by Howard for the American fantasy and horror pulp fiction magazine Weird Tales. Ever since its appearance in the magazine, the fictional sword and sorcery hero was also adapted to books, comics, cartoons, video games, the films Conan the Barbarian (1982), Conan the Destroyer (1984), Conan the Barbarian (2011), the Conan™ slot (2019) and Conan Touch® (2019).
Watch how Conan enters into battle with Thoth-Amon in this action-themed mobile slot, simply jam-packed with video slot features. These include Tower Wilds, Scatter Symbols, a Mystery Symbol, Multipliers, Battle Wilds, and the Thoth-Amon Feature. The list continues with three different Free Spins features: City of Thieves Free Spins, Temple of the Serpent Free Spins, and Walls of Tarantia Free Spins. That’s what makes Conan Touch® highly recommended!
After securing rights to use Conan for its next branded slots game in 2019, it was up to the Swedish software developer to create its own adaptation of Conan, a character and a brand with a fantastic history.
In the following months, Conan got the hallmark NetEnt treatment. NetEnt pictures the fictional sword and sorcery hero the way Howard described him in his stories. Including his native looks, brutish appearance, volcanic blue eyes, and as a skilled fighter.
Who is Conan?
Conan the Cimmerian is a fictional hero often feared by his enemies. He uses his brains as well as his brawn while he appears to be a highly skilled warrior and thief. Conan comes from Cimmeria, the fictional land of barbarians in the also fictional Hyborian Age. Conan proved to be a talented commander, tactician, and strategist, as well as a born leader.
In some stories, Conan revealed his knowledge of languages and codes. This helped him to recognize ancient or secret signs and writings. Howard’s stories showed Conan to be in the possession of a good sense of humour. But Conan is also known as a loyal friend to those true to him.
Robert E. Howard creations
Also created by Robert E. Howard, is Thoth-Amon, the evil wizard introduced in the very first story and Conan’s only enemy in Conan Touch®. It’s very likely that the character’s name derived from the Egyptian deities Thoth, the Egyptian god of writing, magic, wisdom, and the moon, and Amun, the ancient Egyptian god of the sun and air. Thoth-Amon is definitely not a god, though, as he’s the first villain created by Howard.
Conan Touch® features
Not very usual for a NetEnt online casino game, are the 6 reels and 4 rows available, bringing extra symbols into the game. Nine extra symbols to be exact and this can become interesting when looking for a third Scatter symbol, for example.
A win becomes reality when a winning combination appears from left to right and from right to left. This indicates a pay both ways function is there to increase your winnings.
On these 6 reels, you’ll find a good number of symbols including the warrior and the villain, but it’s the Big Golden W and the Scatter that have an important role to play when it comes to the extra video slot features.
Conan Touch® main game
The main game in Conan Touch® brings a huge variety with 4 different features with Tower Wilds active on the reels 1 and 2, a mystery symbol (with a Multiplier) on reels 3 and 4 and Battle Wilds active on the reels 5 and 6. As an extra, there’s the possibility that you activate the Thoth-Amon feature when the game randomly adds between 3-6 Mystery symbols to the reels.
The Tower Wild (blue) and the Battle Wild (red) substitute for any other symbol available in Conan Touch®. This exclude Scatters as they have their own important role to play. Tower Wilds can partially or entirely cover reel 1 and 2 while Battle Wilds will appear on reels 5 and 6.
The Mystery symbols on reel 3 and 4 can appear as a single symbol or stacked. Mystery symbols transform to any symbol except for Scatter symbols, Tower Wilds, and Battle Wilds. Landing a fully stacked Mystery symbol on reels 3 and/or 4 in the main game activates the Mystery Multiplier, except in a no-win situation. All wins from the Mystery Multiplier multiply by a Multiplier between x3 or x7.
Landing a fully stacked Mystery symbol on reels 3 and/or 4 in the main game together with a Tower Wild or Battle Wild activates the Troth-Amon feature. It will be then that 3 to 6 Mystery symbols appear randomly on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. These symbols won’t be replacing Mystery symbols, Scatters and Wilds.
Conan Touch® bonus features
Conan Touch® will unleash Conan’s fighting spirit with 3 or more Scatter symbols on the reels in the Main Game with 3 different types of Free Spins features to choose from. There’s the low-medium volatile City of Thieves Free Spins (with Tower Wilds), the medium-high volatile Temple of the Serpent Free Spins (with mystery symbols) and the low-medium volatile Walls of Tarantia (with Battle Wilds).
If you prefer to win often with lower wins, the Low/Medium volatility City of Thieves Free Spins with Tower Wilds are perfect and the same goes for the low-medium volatile Walls of Tarantia Free Spins offering Battle Wilds.
The Temple of Serpent Free Spins is great when looking for higher wins instead of many wins. In this Free Spins feature both Mystery and Stacked Mystery symbols are available in abundance on all reels.
