Arcader is a 5-reel and 15 fixed paylines slot from Thunderkick, designed with the look of an 8-bit graphics game. The nostalgia is abounding and so are the prizes where the mystery game can reward you with up to 10,800 coins!
The game has a nostalgic feel with 8-bit graphics that may remind you of your first time playing an arcade game as a kid if you are old enough to remember.
None of the symbols is very original, starting with the fruit symbols that include cherries oranges, plums, lemons and watermelons.
The higher paying symbols include the bell, lucky 7 and Bar. The background is a scene from a desolate planet with no atmosphere, where a ringed planet hovers in the background making this is a fruit-themed slot in a space-age.
The sound effects like the graphics are a throwback with an arcade-like sound and a monotone voice uttering words of encouragement as wins and features are triggered.
