I have to be totally honest here and say I don’t really get this game. I am however, willing to try and get my head around this being an attempt to provide a very limited glimpse into the life of a young boy growing up in Turkey. I don’t know what the ice-cream has to do with Turkey, so let’s just assume it has nothing to do with Turkey and is more to do with this Turkish Village Kid. I also need to either assume that all Turkish Moms are angry, or again, maybe it’s just Ortaköyün’s. The game looks OK but it lacks any real vibrancy, something that you most definitely should be associating with country as culturally rich as Turkey. The features are also OK, but won’t be anything you haven’t seen before, leaving you with the theme and the house edge to draw you in. At 3.25%, the House Edge is much better than most Play ‘n Go games and should most certainly not be sniffed at. As for the theme, I guess it’s interesting but not so such that this will hold your attention for very long.
