What To Expect from Foxium Games
One thing that instantly stands out with Foxium games is the superb standard of graphics. There are around a dozen different slots in the company’s portfolio which are currently available at the time of writing. Being such a relatively tiny outfit, they do not have an especially prolific rate of production, with up to half a dozen new releases per year being a typical rate of production. What you do get is quality though – there is no filler in the Foxium range.
It’s a pretty varied selection too. Some games fall well within the established slot genres. Titles like Tiny Gods for example, feature the familiar backdrop of the ancient Egyptian pyramids. The game also includes a Mystery of Horus feature and some Wrath of Anubis Free spins, so that you can be in no doubt as to which genre this particular title belongs. It’s not entirely conventional though – you can pay a fee to bypass the normal rules and simply ‘buy’ free spins!
Meanwhile, Stumpy McDoodles is clearly aimed at the Irish Luck market. This is not entirely a conventional game either though. It does feature the usual Irish totems, such as lots of green, little leprechauns, plenty of shamrock and pots of gold galore. But Stumpy and his playful partner Penny are an unusually playful pair of hosts on this game. The unique pair stamp (or should that be stump?) their own individual personalities on the game as happy-go-lucky fashion victim Penny attempts to keep her gregarious beer drinking partner under control. You can ‘buy’ extra bonuses on this game too.
Being a fan of Hammer Horror and other ghoulish treats, I’m particularly fond of Foxium’s Vampire the Masquerade – Las Vegas slot. This dark but enthralling game extinguishes the usual glitzy neon from the iconic desert city landscape, replacing it with a gloomy gothic darkness. It certainly isn’t the kind of view of the metropolis you typically find on a slot featuring the acclaimed casino capital of the world.
Other Foxium titles are more difficult to classify, but they are all brilliantly conceived and well worth checking out. Also somewhat dark in nature is The Odd Forest, featuring a creepy, fairy tale style woodland which may be best avoided if you are easily spooked, and especially if you are an arachnophobe. If you go down to the woods tonight, you’ll find a bit of a Lewis Carroll / Brothers Grimm mash-up, with numerous strange forest dwelling creatures, colourful looking toadstools and worst of all, an enormous Evil Spider. Alternatively, on a more cheerful note, Lucky Bakery features a cheery baker with an amazing array cakes and other treats which will certainly appeal to any sweet-toothed player.
Perhaps the most beautiful game in the Foxium canon is FruitZ. This innovative game features lots of little fruity characters who are unfortunately turned into zombies by a strange alien meteor. It sounds wacky, and it is. With features galore and a lack of conventional reels, you will enjoy helping Joy defend her farm from the invading alien plant hordes…
Foxium are one of my favourite of the smaller software companies. They can be a little ‘niche’ for some, but the quality of graphics and gameplay is astounding and they are well worth seeking out. Fortunately, this shouldn’t be too difficult if you are playing on a casino on the Progress Play platform. All casino operators on this network have access to the Foxium range of games, so look out for them on your chosen casino.
