Gems Rampage Offers Something Surprising

Have you seen Apple’s controversial “Crush” commercial? It was for the new ultra-thin iPad and played on those viral hydraulic press videos that were super popular in 2015 and 2016. Those with a softer disposition, however, saw it as the symbolic crushing of traditional creativity in favor of the commercial hellscape that is Apple. Gaming Corps, however, saw an opportunity.

Now, I’m inferring a connection between the commercial and Gaming Corps new game Gems Rampage, which is probably a little far-fetched. The game does, however, play on the same viral videos.

It’s time to smash some rocks!

Gems Rampage is about as simple as it gets. You set your bet value and then click Play. A big stone head then attempts to smash the rock under it, and if it manages, you are awarded anything found within. There is some complexity in the details, though.

The amount found within each rock will be determined by what the rock contains. A plain rock will have a maximum 5x bet multiplier. On the other end of the spectrum, a multicolor rainbow rock will offer a maximum 100x bet multiplier.

Then there are the rampage features. After smashing a ball, the Rampage or Multi-Rampage bonus features can be triggered at random. Once triggered, a minimum of two and a maximum of ten balls will be smashed, and any winning amount will be awarded. It’s basically the game’s version of free spins. The Multi-Rampage feature is the same, but each winning amount will be awarded a multiplier value between 2x and 10x.

Finally, we have instant-win prizes. These prizes can be found in any ball and will award the Mini, Minor, Major, or Mega jackpot amount.

Is Gems Rampage worth a smash?

Gems Rampage offers a shot at $224,000 in winnings. However, due to its 1,120x maximum multiplier, you’ll need to be betting at $200 a spin to take a shot at that winning amount. The slot offers medium volatility, which gives the gameplay a nice balance between the rare big wins and more consistent small wins. It offers an RTP of 97%.

The format for Gems Rampage is a breath of fresh air. The problem is that this time around, it’s a copy and not an original. The game is basically just a reskin of Piggy Smash, which Gaming Crops released in January. That being said, I do think Gems Rampage is the more compelling theme for the format. This leaves me at a bit of a loss for how to score this one. What I will say is that it’s a fun, compelling game that I think you should try out.

If you’re looking for a few other interesting titles from Gaming Corps, I recommend giving Coin Miner 2 and Egypt Bonus Pot a try.
