Martial arts is serious business and there are a fair number of online slots that depict the pastime realistically. But online casino software developers like to build in a comic perspective in their slot games for greater effect. This article reviews two such slot games based on the martial arts theme from Microgaming.

The first martial arts themed video slot game is titled Kung Fu Monkey. It narrates a kidnapping set in Chinatown. The Kung Fu Monkey is looking for a baby kidnapped by Big Boss Gorilla, the Baboon and the Ninja Monkey. All these characters appear as symbols on the reels. You will witness some nifty win animations. The Kung Fu Monkey Logo is the wild symbol. The Gong is one of the scatter symbols and it awards 10 free spins at doubled payouts. The highlight of this video slot is the Kung Fu bonus round, which is triggered by the Chinatown scatter symbol. This is a three level bonus game on the second screen. In the first level you pick three out of six baboons. If the baboons defeat the Kung Fu Monkey the game ends with an award of compensatory free spins. The second level is played with ninjas instead of baboons. In the final level the Kung Fu monkey fights the Big Boss. You select the martial arts move for the Kung Fu monkey. If the Kung Fu monkey wins and frees the baby you are in for massive payouts.

The martial arts Microgaming video slot Karate Pig also relies on an animal for the comic effect. The Karate Pig logo is the wild symbol and it can appear stacked on the reels. The high value card symbols have been replaced by icons from Japanese culture such as a Buddha statue and a bonsai tree. The Karate Pig is also a Japanese chef. He triggers a bonus feature in which you have to choose from Pork Chop Bonus and Hammer Bonus. You pick an object and receive bonus credits. Each time the bonus is triggered you receive a higher ranking karate belt. When you win the black belt you will play the Final Showdown bonus. The Karate Pig has three rounds to defeat his opponent and accumulate bonuses for you. This video slot also includes a free spins bonus round. You will be awarded 15 free spins at doubled payouts. The free spins can be retriggered. Karate Pig is a video slot game with 40 paylines.
