Spearhead Studios has announced the release of MegaNova, the company’s first game using the popular ‘cluster pays’ mechanic.
The game has a space theme with high-paying symbols represented by planets from the solar system, the royal meteors and a fiery expanding wild sun. The symbols are presented in a 6x6 grid, with a night sky backdrop and a tranquil audio soundscape.
MegaNova, which was developed using Spearhead Studios’s proprietary game development technology and tools, is optimised for mobile gameplay. The UI responds in a fluid manner to the device and orientation, and the file size is best-in-class for premium-quality games of this type. It is available in a wide range of currencies and languages and is certified in major jurisdictions.
Mathias Larsson, managing director of Spearhead Studios, said: “MegaNova is an excellent addition to our ever-growing games portfolio, and we are sure it’s going to be a big hit. We are right on track with our gaming releases and very confident that by the end of this year we’ll manage to establish Spearhead Studios as a reliable provider offering a vast collection of titles in many jurisdictions.”
Kevin Corti, game development director at Spearhead Studios, said: “MegaNova offers players something different than what they are expecting. We are inviting them to join a tranquil, soothing game that bursts into life whenever one or more of the wilds land. The work we’ve put into this title paid off, and we are happy to welcome it into our portfolio.”
The game kicks into life with any wins, and then really heats up if the player lands one or more of the fiery wilds. Land a wild and it will expand towards the centre of the reels, to become a 2x2 symbol and consequently trigger a free respin. If any wilds overlap, they create win multipliers up to 3x for all clusters involved, leading to wins of over 1,670x. MegaNova has a return to player (RTP) of 96.41%.
