You’d Think It Impossible To Have Card Mechanics In A Slot Machine…

By Eugene . January 18, 2014 . 2:00pm

 

Saint Seiya Cosmo Slottle is a pachislot game featuring the various Saints from the Saint Seiya series duking it out against foes using slot reels. The game’s been converted into a smartphone title, and one of the more interesting things we discovered is that the slot reels change depending on which Saints you decide to bring along for the ride.

 

So Seiya himself, for instance, gets more “punch” slots in his reel. This makes for a slightly more tactical game where you actively have to consider which allies you want to bring into play to get better chances at winning. Well, who’d have thought we might be able to game the system that way, eh?

By leveling up your Saints, you’ll also be able to “strengthen” the reel. We’re not sure what that actually means, but it does suggest icons might be added or changed to give even better chances to win. While spinning your wheel, the game takes on some RPG tones with hit points for your characters (We’re not sure what happens if they get knocked out, such as whether you lose or have a way to revive them) and has you pummel down foes including, eventually, boss characters. You’ll also be able to have other players assist you in fights.

 

 

Saint Seiya Cosmo Slottle is out now on iOS and Android.

    usually don’t care about iphone/android games, but these are some nice illustration.. I wish they would port that dramatic Pachinco game to console, had a lot of new animation for Sanctuary.. Sailormoon seems to be getting a total new anime series too, lots of oldies revival lately..

      Yeah, it’s a phenomenon known only to Japan. They often put way more effort into the art in their Pachinko games than they do with actual console games. Maybe because gambling is still illegal in Japan so they need something to spice it up. Still, seems rather pointless to me.
      Check out Macross pachislot game to see some crazy high def animation there while you’re at it

        Yeah, I actually saw the new animation from the Macross Pachinco game before, really high quality and still in Mikimoto Haruhiko style.. even Maison Ikkoku had one, but the newer Inu-yasha style looks weird compared to the original (pre-Ranma).

        It is indeed weird they spent so much effort on the art for an anime related Pachinko game, people watch these on youtube and mistake them for full blown anime remakes. It’s ironic too, the Saint Seiya pachinko had like an hour of new high quality animation while the new Saint Seiya PS3 game had none at all, other than the short intro in so-so quality :(.. no CG cutscenes either, it was quite lazy.. since I’m not in Japan and don’t play pachinko, I would really like them to make this animation available in some form, on a DVD or even bonus in a game, guess not happening.. the youtube videos are kinda blurry (for Saint Seiya)..

    I’m currently hooked up with this Seiya Slottle…Let me explain its system and mechanism point by point
    1. You can select 3 Saints to join your team.
    2. You can obtain new Saints by either normal/rare “gasha” or after finish some fights. At presents it seems to have all Saints up to the 12 Gold Saints Wars (Bronze/Silver/Gold Saints and the Pope)
    3. Each saints has own element among “Red, Green, and Blue” which Red has advantage over Green, Green over Blue, and Blue over Red.
    4. Each Slottle stage is according to the Saint Seiya Animation (at present I’m at episode 50th fighting against Cancer Deathmask in the 12 Gold Saints Wars.
    5. You can level up your Saints by either combine with other Saint cards (no cost required) or use Athena Cosmo point, which you always gain some after finish each battle.
    6. Saint cards has its own rank (star) from 1-7 (highest as I seen so far) and you will need fragments in order to upgrade your Saint card ranks. (Some requires Saint cards, some require special support card like Miho, Shunrei, Esmeralda, and Athena cards)
    7. There are 3 Battle mode (wars), which are Story, Event (not available at the moment), and Fragment (battle among 5 legendary Bronze Saints and change each day. Saturday-Sunday you will get to battle against Aries Mu and Roshi to collect extra heals and revival fragments.
    8. When your Saint died (0 HP), you can use specific card to revive your Saint back into the battle (with half HP).
    9. When all your Saints has lost the battle (all 0 HP), you can spend 10 Saint coins to continue the game or just quit the battle and lose all Athena Cosmo points, Experience, and several fragments.

    This game is an addict (at least pretty much to me) and have been nonstop playing over a week already. What I really like the most is the Saint cards level up system which doesn’t require any cost. You just combine maximum 5 Saint cards at a time and can keep feeding your Saint those cards until you get your satisfaction level.

    Hope my article helps you decide whether to play it or not more or less.

    Cheers!!!
