The complete title of the game is actually Roasty McFry and The Flame Busters, and this is a slot machine which was designed by Thunderkick.
The slot seems to be based on an old arcade game, where you had to save an apartment building by acting as a fireman and stopping the fire from spreading. Instead of getting us a modern title, Thunderkick preferred to create an arcade style slot, with the pixilated graphics that come with such a thing.
The symbols are barely recognizable, but you can still figure out that you’re looking at firemen, wizards, robots, pirates, fires, fire alarms, W logos, a goat man and coins which have Ten to Ace written on them. All I can say about the design is that it is appropriate for the theme. It might not be pretty, but it is charming in its own way.
Thunderkick, a small and still young developer of casino games, has been offering unique looking slot machines on more than one occasion, and overall I have to say that I’m quite impressed with what they did so far.
A couple of games that I enjoyed, and which also have modern graphics where they showcase what they can do, include Barber Shop, 1429 Uncharted Seas and Turning Totems.
How To Play It
From what I’ve seen, all their games work the same way when it comes to betting. You have a Bet button which will let you access a new screen, with values ranging from $0.10 to $100 available to choose from. You only pick the total bet, nothing else.
The slot has 5×3 reels and it uses the 243 ways to win that are so often available in newer titles. You form combinations by landing matching icons, on neighboring reels and starting from the leftmost column. You need at least three symbols to get paid.

Fire symbols are among those that can be classified as features in Flame Busters. These are mystery icons, which are replaced with other symbols, though only with regular ones. All mystery symbols are replaced with the same type of icon, so their advantage is that they all work together towards helping you form more winning combinations.
The W Logo is the wild, a feature that you probably recognize. It works the same way as in any other slot machine, and it doesn’t have any additional abilities.
The Alarm Bell is the scatter here, and the one that gets you 10, 15 or 20 free spins, if you have 3, 4 or 5 symbols of this type in view somewhere. At the same time, as you’re going through the free spins, you will collect scatters which will allow you to advance in the building.
You unlock a new floor with every three scatters that you collect. You also get 2 extra free spins when that happens. Each time you unlock a floor, the lowest value coin symbol will be turned into a Fire symbol (mystery icon) for the remainder of the free spins.
Finally, there is a Fire Drill random feature as well, but only in the base game. It will turn 1 to 5 symbols into Fire Symbols, and then all of them will then be turned into a single type of icon.
The Fireman will form a combination which pays up to $1,000, with five matching symbols needed to get that much.
Flame Busters is the kind of game that looks dated on purpose, and they actually did a pretty good job at translating the theme into a look that will trigger people’s arcade game nostalgia.
