Aussie Rules for Games Lab Slots
The team operates out of Chatswood in New South Wales and is able to handle end-to-end game production in-house. They do everything from the initial creative games design to the complicated maths that sits behind random slot games and the software and the soundtrack.
They don't just develop their own games, though: they also offer a custom game creation service for clients who need a game to be created but don't have their own design and production facilities. Games Lab can take either highly detailed or very sketchy briefs and turn them into all-singing, all-dancing slots.
They've also got a relationship with NextGen, using the NYX/NextGen platform for some of Games Lab slots, such as Crazy Pop.
Games Lab Graphics Really Dazzle
What is striking about Games Lab titles like Osiris is the fantastic graphics and the level of detail and care in every aspect of the game's visuals. The sacred cat, Tutankhamun and the game setting are incredibly well drawn and coloured. The game's background is multilayered with a 3D effect, and there's lots of animation on the reels as wilds and scatters arrive.
Or take Jewel of the Jungle, released in January 2017. Again, you've got very detailed and beautifully realised graphics, but in this game the graphics are far more naturalistic. There are delicately drawn butterflies, red parrots, blue frogs, leopards, snakes, flowers and monkeys - all highly authentic and recognisable.
Crazy Pop, released just three months later in March 2017, shows the versatility of the design team. This one crackles with colour, with bubbles fizzing everywhere and every kind of candy you can imagine, from jelly beans to love hearts. Many games developers designing this kind of slot would have slapped some simple pictures up there and moved on. But not Games Lab, who have performed their usual magic and produced 3D-effect sweeties that look so good you want to reach into the screen, pick one up and pop it in your mouth! The colours are vibrant and glossy, there's a sparkle to the whole game, and it puts you in a good mood just looking at it.
Gripping Gameplay from Games Lab
As with the other Games Lab slots, the gameplay is truly inventive and a welcome change from some of the cloned slots from the big games developers, where the gameplay is exactly the same but with different graphics. There's an amazing underworld feature which gives you nine free games with triple locking wilds. As the feature progresses, the wilds are locked into place, gradually taking up more of the screen as the remaining reels spin.
In Crazy Pop, you've got wilds, multipliers and three different bonus games which award free spins and have features within the feature. There are a plethora of wild types, concluding spreading wilds, extra wilds and locked wilds. Unusually, there's a wild that can substitute for the scatter. It's another example of the way in which Games Lab takes a different and original approach to their game design. Not content with all of this, Games Lab also has a Fizzy Bet and Crazy Bet in this game. You're not going to get bored with these free slots!
If all this talk about Australia is making you want to travel, take a look at our Travel / Countries Slots theme. We've done the hard work for you and selected a terrific set of slots featuring countries around the world. There's Genesis Gaming's Arabian Caravan, iSoftBet's New York and dozens of others, right through to La Dolce Vita from Bally Wulff. What's more, you can play all of these games on mobile and tablet completely free here at Slots Temple.
Some countries are so popular that they have their own listing. So, for example, there are nearly thirty games which have Africa as their theme. Ancient Greece, the Arctic and Irish themed slots are all popular. But no one beats the Oriental and Asian themed games, with over 300 available to play here at Slots Temple.
If you want to follow Games Lab or any other slots designer, go to the red menu bar at the top of the screen and choose "Software". You'll find all the games houses listed in alphabetical order. Click on any of them to see their games. Good luck!
