Created by Robert E. Howard in 1932, Conan the Barbarian came a long way. 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).
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 months following, Conan received the hallmark NetEnt treatment, showing the fictional sword and sorcery hero the way he was described by Howard in his stories, including his native looks, brutish appearance, volcanic blue eyes, and as a skilled fighter.
Conan the Cimmerian, coming from Cimmeria, the fictional land of barbarians in the also fictional Hyborian Age, is known to be feared by his enemies because he uses his brains as well as his brawn while being a highly skilled warrior and thief. 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 which 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 Conan is also known as a loyal friend to those true to him.
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. It’s also clear that Thoth-Amon doesn’t really deserve to be linked to either gods as he’s the first villain created by Howard.
Watch how Conan enters into battle with Thoth-Amon in this action-themed mobile slot which is simply jam-packed with video slot features including Tower Wilds, Scatter Symbols, a Mystery Symbol, Multipliers, Battle Wilds, the Thoth-Amon Feature and three different Free Spins features including City of Thieves Free Spins, Temple of the Serpent Free Spins, and Walls of Tarantia Free Spins, making Conan Touch® highly recommended!
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. It didn’t lead to numerous bet lines or anything as we’ve seen more than 24 bet lines in a good number of video slots, but since wins are paid out when a winning combination appears from left to right, as well as from right to left from the last reel, a pay both ways function has been added as well.
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.
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 the Thoth-Amon feature is activated when between 3-6 Mystery symbols are randomly added to the reels.
The Tower Wild (blue), as well as the Battle Wild (red) and both of them substitute for any other symbol available in Conan Touch®, although Scatters are excluded from this rule as they are too important for the game to be replaced. 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. The Mystery Multiplier is not triggered in case of a no-win spin. All wins from the Mystery Multiplier are multiplied by a Multiplier of between x3 and 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 are randomly added to reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. These symbols won’t be replacing Mystery symbols, Scatters and Wilds.
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 recommended 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.
