Design and Symbols.
The first thing that comes to mind when opening Fire and Ice Island for the first time is “POP.” Be it the symbols, logo, or the background. The higher paying symbols are all human avatars. The lower valued symbols are 9-A cards.
The card symbols work surprisingly well in Fire and Ice Island due to the thought through pop-art style on all elements in the game.

At first glance, I was not very impressed by the game at all, as it looked very much like a rushed rip-off of a very well-known Japanese cartoon series (Take a look at the blonde main character). With the limited amount of special features, I was not looking forward spending 20 minutes in this slot to try out the different features and what not.
Boy was I wrong. First, the design of this game is very unique. – Not too flashy, and not too “digitized” in the cartoon style. The Pop-artsy design on the background, title, and symbols are just fantastic. 40 minutes and hundreds of spins after, I have to say that this slot spoke to me more than I initially expected. I loved the frequent appearance of the target chest symbols, and the different wilds keep you on the edge of your seat when that mage comes in from the left to shoot them up.
