Kong: 8th Wonder of the World is based on Peter Jackson's movie adaptation of King Kong released in 2005, rather than the original 1933 film. Reel icons include images of the cast – Naomi Watts, Jack Black and Adrien Brody – as well as A, K, Q, J and 10, and the action is punctuated by footage from the movie.
One issue we have with some pokies titles is that the gameplay during standard play gets a bit repetitive. In that respect, Kong: 8th Wonder of the World has answered our prayers – there are two different game modes, one set in King Kong's jungle home and the other in 1930s New York City.
The differences to the gameplay in these modes are minimal, with different bonus rounds being triggered in each, but it's still a nice touch that helps to keep players guessing at what's around the corner.
