The symbols used in the game include a variety of colourful cats (red, pink, blue and golden), a clockwork mouse, variously coloured paw prints, the skeleton of a once-tasty fish, a bottle of milk and a bell attached to a cat collar. All of the symbols are drawn in an appealing retro style, and the soundtrack, which has a smooth-jazz easy listening vibe, fits the visuals perfectly.
Copy Cats gets its name from the fact that the colourful cats which star in the game have the ability to duplicate themselves, which is very handy when you want to win big. The title also boasts plenty of Wilds and Stacked Wilds, which make it easier to complete winning lines or improve – sometimes rather dramatically – existing winners. The bell symbol serves as a Scatter, and when you get three or more of them on the reels at the same time you trigger a Free Spins bonus round.
The background scene changes quite subtly, with lights going on in the houses as darkness falls. It could be quite easy to miss that kind of thing, especially if you happen to be enjoying a winning streak, but it is an impressive attention to detail which should be applauded.
‘The release of Copy Cats purr-fectly demonstrates the versatility and breadth of appeal offered by the NetEnt games portfolio,’ quipped Simon Hammon, who is Chief Product Officer of NetEnt. ‘The title is full of features, vibrant animations and an easy-listening soundtrack that we’re sure will leave players feline good. It’s certain to be a kitty classic.’
Whilst Copy Cats isn’t a ground-breaking title, it is one which is very well executed, and it delivers plenty to satisfy players who prefer games that offer a more relaxing gaming experience, rather than one which drowns them in adrenaline. In short, Copy Cats is a game which is designed to make players feel good, and it succeeds in that aim very well.
Copy Cats can be played at Mr Green Casino and other venues which offer NetEnt titles.
