Net Entertainment’s latest video slots release Aliens™ is already the talk of town and based on 1986 film. In cooperation with 20th Centurty Fox, Aliens is a mega slots buster replete with all the bells and whistles. The game can be played for free or for real cash.
It captures the imagination right from the very first penny and does James Cameron’s movie justice. Aliens™ video slots is at the forefront when it comes to graphical design and mechanical innovation. It is a non-progressive jackpot slots that comes with 5 reels and 15 paylines. It offers an average return to the player of 96%. The hit frequency is 20 odd percent which is not bad at all.
This game reminds me of a first person shooter. You get to experience the action from the Marine’s helmet fitted with a camera. The jittery soundtrack makes the game even more suspenseful.
Aliens is divided into three distinct levels, your sole aim is to survive the alien horde and to destroy them. If you manage to kill the Queen you will be rewarded with 240 times your current bet. This is not a mission for the faint hearted are you ready?
There are 10 bet levels, 1 is the lowest and 10 the highest. The coin denomination will suit every players’ budget. You can wager from as a little as €0.15 up to €150 per spin. The main game is divided into Auto Play, Max Bet, Coin Value and the Spin button. When you click on the left and right arrows you can increase or decrease your bet levels.
As mentioned previously the game comprises of three levels. Each level has it its own distinct features.
The alien horde is upon you. You must collect symbols and add it to the Alien Activity Meter. It has 9 stages, before you can advance to the next level you must accrue a certain amount of points. The average return to the player in this level is 40%. Which is slightly below industry standards.
Level 2: The Encounter
The gloves are off in this level. Every symbol virtually guarantees you a payout on condition you survive the relentless alien attacks. The main purpose of the game is to reach the Queen’s hive and to destroy it. Your winnings from Level 1 will be transferred to this level. On 3 symbols you can get as much as a multiplier of 6 times. The average return to the player in this level is 47%.
Be on the lookout for the Ammo symbols which appear randomly across the reels. The Ammo Clip Counter triggers the re-spins. After each spin the Ammo Clip Counter decreases by one.
Level 3: The Hive
This is where the Aliens Queen is at, you must destroy her or be destroyed. It also rewards 5 re-spins. For every stage you complete, the Hive Health Meter awards a cash prize of 240 times your initial bet if you kill the Queen and destroy the Hive. You can damage the Queens health every time you use a grenade in combination with multiplier. This is also an interesting level. The multiplier on the middle reel can multiply the damage by as much as 10 times. This level offers the lowest return to the player, only 8%. Understandably so, if you manage to destroy the Queen handsome payouts ensue.
Aliens is a lucrative slots it awards a total payout of 3,817 times your stake. I played the slots and wins were far and few in between-for me at least. The game’s intensity picks up once you’ve reached Level 2. Basically all formalities are out the way.
In summary. Backed by ground-breaking NetEnt software, Aliens has become the yardstick for industry standards. The game’s real-time 3D graphics is one-of-a-kind and blew me away. Just because this video slots sports some of the best graphics in the business don’t expect any payouts with the first penny wagered.[addtoany]
