Street Fighter IV
It’s definitely cool to have superpowers - turning people into stones, transforming into a ball of flames, and jumping back in time. Calling you a mutant as you possess unnatural abilities is reallygood but branding you as a freak is very dishonoring. Thus, in this world, it is pretty much cooler to master martial arts – cracking a piece of brick, flying with style in the air, and using the elements of nature – than to own superpowers. No wonder many cartoons, animes, and movies nowadays focus on martial arts, especially Chinese movies. Some of the forms you may know are Kung Fu, Judo, Tai-chi and Taekwondo.
Why do some people master martial arts? There are actually two primary reasons. First, it may be used for self-defense. And second, it may be used for fighting. Just take for example the classic arcade game called Street Fighter. The offense and defense moves the characters do there are quite extraordinary for they use some forms that are directly derived from martial arts; just observe their kicks, punches and shields. We don’t know if it’s the martial arts that made the game famous; all we know is the fact that it is famous. And adding to its fame is Cryptologic’s fourth release of the game series called Street Fighter IV.
Street Fighter IV is a 5-reel, 25-payline video slot game with 36 possible winning combinations. The maximum number of coins per pay line is 1, which means the maximum number of coins per spin is 25, with the coin value ranging from $0.01 to $20. Thus, the minimum amount the player can bet per game is $0.01 and the maximum amount is $500, depending on the number of pay lines the player wanted to activate.
The graphics, animations and sounds of the game are as exciting and thrilling as that of the arcade game. Just like the arcade game, the player has to choose among Ken, Ryu, Chun Li and Abel. The wild symbol is the Yin Yang figure, which is able to replace any symbol except the scatter symbol to complete a winning combination. The Yin Yang figures appear on reels 2 and 4 only. The scatter symbol is the Street Fighter IV logo. Getting three or more of this symbol anywhere on the reels activates the Bonus Feature. In this round, the player’s chosen character fights with another character. If the chosen character wins, bonus prizes are awarded. If the chosen character loses, complimentary spins are given.The top-paying symbol is the Hat figure. Getting 5 of this symbol awards the top jackpot of 5,000 coins or $100,000; that is, if the player has chosen the maximum bet! The total winnings can of course be increased during the Bonus Feature.
So better prepare yourself as you face the intensebattleground! Be ready to get hooked in this new version of Street Fighter as you meet your favorite character once again while collecting a generous amount of money. If you’re a Street Fighter since childhood, then this game is right for you!
